Stamp Review Crew - Autumn Leaves

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Autumn Leaves edition! The "Crew" is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Holly's blog, welcome! There are only three of us today, so this will be a quick hop.

Autumn Leaves is a 12 piece photopolymer set with a 17 piece coordinating die set, which of course can be bundled for a discount.. I love the labels in the die set, as well as the greetings in the stamp set that can be customized!

My first card uses the negative of the maple leaf die as a frame for the brilliant fall foliage found in the All About Autumn Specialty DSP pack.

The Cajun Craze square measures 3-1/4" x 3-1/4". It is popped up over the Very Vanilla (4" x 5-1/4") background in which I used the dotted lines die in a couple places. I liked the visual interest the dots gave to the blank space.

The strip of foiled DSP measures 1-1/8" x 5-1/4" and I added layered ribbons - burlap Crumb Cake from the Real Red and Burlap combo pack, and copper from the Copper & Natural combo pack. A few copper sequins finished the card.

Up next is another card featuring products in the All About Autumn Suite Collection. The stamped greeting is Mossy Meadow ink on Crumb Cake, cut with a Stylish Shapes die.

The die cut leaves started as Oxidized Copper Specialty DSP, and were tinted using sponge daubers and ink pads (Mossy Meadow, Real Red, and Crushed Curry).

After adhering them to the circle, the circle was popped up on the copper foiled DSP and a strip of Natural ribbon was added to the side. Then the whole thing was attached to the Crumb Cake card base. Oh, I almost forgot! Those Mossy Meadow sprigs are the leaf vein/stem dies. And I just realized I didn't use any of the leaf stamps, just the greetings and dies. 😁

That's all I have to share for today, so click "Next" to see what Terri created, or "Previous" to visit Holly again. Thanks for stopping by!
