Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Fall.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

When I saw that the theme was Fall (we call it autumn in Australia, and it is spring here at the moment) I knew I would use the Beauty of the Earth DSP. The colours in this paper are so vibrant and have strong “autumnal” overtones. I also decided that these colours would lend themselves to a Thinking of You card. This is what I came up with.



  • Stamps: – Beauty of the Earth
  • Inks: – Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black Marker (for birds’ eyes)
  • Card: – Cinnamon Cider, Merry Merlot, Shimmer Card, Whisper White, Vellum, Mossy Meadow, Beauty of Friendship DSP
  • Tools: –  Beautiful Trees Dies, Aquapen, Stampin Dimensionals
  • Embellishments: – Holiday Rhinestones

I had fun doing a multicoloured wash on the Shimmer Card before adhering the tree trunk and DSP diecut foliage on top.  I hope you are inspired by my card.  I’d love to know what you think! Thanks for joining us for our Blog Hop.
