Falling for Leaves for Facebook Live

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share the projects I featured on my weekly Facebook Live video. I usually go Live on Thursday’s at 2:30pm CST, but this week I moved it to Friday morning. I’ll be back to the regular time next week. My projects this week focused on the Falling for Leaves Bundle in the Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. 

have a free PDF linked at the end of this post that shares all of the measurements and a supply list for all of the projects. 

 The fist card I shared was actually there last card I created for today’s video. I was really hung up on using all fall colors with it, so I tried to challenge myself to get away from those rust and gold hues. The Brights color collection is always my “go-to” when I’m looking for inspiration so I decided on Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody for a cheerful mix of colors. 
I think it really freshened up the stamp set and didn’t make it so “seasonal."
My second project was a fun-fold gift card holder. It opens like a little book and there is a spot on one side for the gift card and on the other side to slip in a little note. It’s really easy to put together, too. 

Finally, for my final project, I had a lot of questions about the Buffalo Check background card I shared last Sunday over on The Paper Players. You can find that post by clicking HERE. So, I decided to recreate the card by changing the focal color from Cajun Craze to Blackberry Bliss. I think I might have a new favorite color. Swoon!  

All of the products I used to create the projects will be listed on the sheets, along with the measurements.

Falling for Leaves for PP414

Hello and Happy Sunday! This week over at The Paper Players, the lovely Jaydee has a color challenge for us. I really wanted to step outside the box with this one but my mind just kept going to the Falling for Leaves Bundle. These are perfect colors for fall! I haven’t played around with that stamp set a whole lot yet, so it was time to ink it up.  
I may have mentioned it before but Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry are two colors that I tend to shy away from. However, Mossy Meadow is a gorgeous green, so that kind of made up for it. But that’s why color challenges are so fun, they can take you out of your "color comfort zone" sometimes. That’s a good thing. 

I used the Buffalo Check Background stamp on Very Vanilla because I am kind of obsessed with it right now. It looks great in EVERY color! I used my Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Markers and a ruler to add some additional color on the plaid background. I like how it tied all of the colors together and that it adds versatility to the Buffalo Check stamp. Have I mentioned that I love that stamp? Haha! 
I also added the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint in a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle with some rubbing alcohol to add some shimmer to the Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry and vellum leaves. It is really close to Cajun Craze in color and I really like the added detail. 

Finally, here is a quick shot of the inside of the card.  

Won’t you join us and share your project this week?
