Paper Crafting Blog Hop October 2021 - Anything Fall!


Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for October 2021 featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you this month - all spotlighting projects that represent - anything Fall!

Fall is definitely my favorite season - apple cider, trees turning colors, warm days and cool nights. So I made a card to reflect that feeling.

The sentiment is from a Christmas set, but it worked perfectly for fall for me. To make this card I used the Bargello technique taking strips of the amazing Beauty of the Earth DSP and adhering it to self-adhesive paper, then cutting that in strips to get all these beautiful colors.

Next adhere these strips to another piece of self-adhesive to get a beautiful layer of mosaic like design.

I then used the stitched leaves dies to cut out leaf images -
and using the negative image - popped it up with dimensionals on a card base of Merry Merlot to get this beautiful card -
I gave the sentiment a little curve with a bone folder and adhered it with glue dots, and dimensionals to raise the center. Added a little twine bow. Then finally - I finished the inside with one of the cut out leaves.

Hope you like the card as much as I liked making it - my ode to FALL in the form of a beautiful card. Would love it if you'd leave me a comment on what you think.

I like the strip technique. And the cutout from the front is a great touch on the inside.

You may have just inspired me to give the bargello technique a try. And I love how you used the negative cut outs on the front with the positive die cut on the inside!
