Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful Fall Friendship Card

Good Morning! For today I made a Fall card with the sweet tree from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful photopolymer stamp set. I paired it with pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut the top and bottom edge of a panel of Bumblebee card stock with the small bubble edge die from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhered an panel of Plaid Tidings 6″x6″ designer series paper to the front. I cut a panel of Shimmery White card stock with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and used old Olive and Pool Party inks with my water painters to do a color wash background. After it dried, I pressed the panel and stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the side. I stamped the leaves in Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks and adhered the panel to a Soft Suede mat.

I stamped the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating dies from the Gathered Leaves Dies. I colored them with Mossy Meadow and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White, cut it out with the small label die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat.

I adhered the tree panel to the card front with dimensionals. I tied a length of Bumblebee Gingham ribbon with linen thread and adhered it to the panel with glue dots. I adhered the label with dimensionals and popped the pair of pumpkins on the panel with dimensionals. I brushed some clear Wink of Stella glitter on the pumpkins so they would shimmer like the background.

I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful stamp set in Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks in the top corner of a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom and the large pumpkin in the corner. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful stamp set has the pretty tree that can be used for all seasons. It has beautiful sentiments, and coordinates well with many other stamp sets.
