Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves

Happy Wednesday, Crafty Friends! I have another fall card today. One of my stamping friends posted a challenge to use one of the Cajun Craze combinations for a fall card. I chose Cajun Craze, So Saffron, and Old Olive (with a little Crumb Cake and Tangerine Tango thrown in for good measure).

The leaves are turning beautiful colors right now, and one type of tree has beautiful, bright orange leaves. I tried to replicate those in this card.

Birch, Stampin' Up!, Snow Front, Itty Bitty Greetings

I used the Snow Front Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog for this. First, I stamped the trunk in Early Espresso, then the leaves using Tangerine Tango. This isn’t quite the brilliant orange I wanted, so next time I’ll try Mango Melody and maybe a little Pumpkin Pie.

For the “ground” and sentiment, I used Crumb Cake Classic Ink. After I die-cut the image layer and the center of the bottom Cajun Craze layer using Rectangle Stitched Framelits. The So Saffron layer was a bit blah, so I stamped it with the Birch background stamp using Crushed Curry Classic Ink.

I dithered a bit about embellishments or ribbon. I decided to use a little Copper Trim. I stretched it open, then added it under the stamped layer. I think it looks like a scarf blowing in the breeze.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so this card was a lot of fun to create. After our summers, I’m always happy for fall weather, but I also look forward to spring after a harsh(ish) winter. The only part of fall that is a little sad is nightfall coming a little earlier. Usually by the time it’s dark, though, I’m ready to be snuggled inside.

Be sure to check in on Friday for our latest BS&J challenge!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

    You captured the fall colors perfectly. Our fall was one of the prettiest I have seen in a while. Then we had big winds earlier this week and all the leaves are gone. Sad. Pretty card!

    A beautiful fall card, Buffy! I like how you compared the copper trim ribbon to a scarf blowing in the wind 🙂
