Vintage Leaves and Leaflets Framelits

vintage leaves

It’s cooling down here this week in Central New York, and I have one tree in the back yard that’s actually dropping leaves already – a sure sign that Autumn is just around the corner.  I love the Vintage Leaves stamp set by Stampin’ Up! because it reminds me of all the beautiful colors of the autumn leaves in my area.  And this perfect autumn stamp set comes with coordinating Framelits – Leaflets Framelits – so that you can cut out each one of the leaf shapes.  This duo is a must have for the fall, and you’ll save 15% when you bundle them together and purchase both at the same time.

  • My color scheme is Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon, Old Olive and Very Vanilla – such rich, vibrant colors!
  • I kept this card simple so as to show off the leaves and my favorite accessory for the fall – our Burlap Ribbon.
  • Using two Circle Framelits I stacked the smaller one inside the larger one and cut the thin Rich Razzleberry cardstock circle.  And you’re going to fall in love with a brand new product that you can order on September 1st – the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  This is idea for adhering small embellishments and small paper cutouts to your projects, and it’s designed so that the tip will stay open and flowing freely.  And once the Holiday Catalog goes live, go to www.stampinup.com/holiday-videos to watch a short video on how to use this wonderful addition to the Stampin’ Up! adhesives.
  • The beautiful sentiment on my card is another sneak peek product from the Holiday Catalog – the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set.  This too coordinates with the Leaflets Framelits, but the leaves are more . . . well . . . “lighthearted”!  I think combining all three products will give you lots of options.

  • A Linen Thread double bow held in place with a Glue Dot gives the illusion of tying the leaves together at the stems without all the work.

Good Ole Lovely as a Tree


Here's a card that features the new and the old.  The new is our beautiful Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, with a wonderful Fall palette of Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Soft Sky, and Tangerine Tango.  I added a sliver of Smoky Slate cardstock behind the tree image.  The old are two stamp sets that have been around a very long time – Lovely as a Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes.  In fact, I think Lovely as a Tree is the oldest stamp set in our Annual Catalog!  Both sets have been updated to be available in clear mount if you choose.

  • I love that I can use different coordinating sheets of designer paper all in one card, and Stampin' Up! has done the work of matching them up for me.
  • Linen Thread is the perfect fiber for Fall.  And I've added a simple Tangerine Tango Candy Dot from the Brights Candy Dots along with a Candy Dot Brad Base.
