For this Facebook Live I decided to demonstrate how to make cards from the Gilded Autumn Suite. This is such an incredibly beautiful Suite with the prettiest colors, images and fonts not to mention the embellishments/ribbons and punches!

I participate in a design team of 11 other Stampin’ Up! designers and for this live I am sharing my design as well as the design of one other person and then a couple of other cards I created recently. I hope you enjoy them!

SSS Beautiful AutumnThis is the card I designed for the team. It is a Simple Suite Stampers Design team where we take an entire Suite from the catalog and show how to create simply with it. This is a simple card (for me since I can get complicated at times) but the colors and images really show off in this simple card!

It’s really nothing more than designer series paper, ink and punches! I can’t share the sizes because it is on a PDF you can only get through a purchase from my store or for being part of my team. I will share sizes for the two I created that are not a part of this design team.

Beautiful Autumn - Anne Marie

This is the card Anne Marie created and I re-created on my FB Live. As mentioned with the above card, I cannot share details of how I made it but if you watch the video you can probably figure it out.

Gilded Autumn - 3

This is the third card I designed so I will share the measurements below. I used a sentiment from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set but used the leaves from Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set.  I used Cinnamon Cider Cardstock for the base of my card then layered Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron. Before adhering the Cardstock pieces together, I ran the Mint Macaron Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine with the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. Then I added a piece of Designer Series Paper. After that I stamped my sentiment onto Very Vanilla Cardstock then die cut it using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. Then I stamped a leaf with Mint Macaron then filled it in by using third generation ink (stamping off the ink twice on scrap paper before applying to your image) to the leaves. I also stamped another leaf using Soft Suede then stamped off on the image a couple of times. I popped the label up on dimensionals then added a knot of Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon. I love how it turned out!

Beautiful Autumn - last card

This is the last card I made on the live. It’s a very simple card. I used Sahara Sand Cardstock as my card base then layered a piece of Cajun Craze Cardstock and a piece of the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper. I added a complimenting strip of DSP then stamped my sentiment on Very Vanilla Cardstock before adding it to a piece of Cajun Craze. I forgot to do this on the video but in the original card I made (shown) I used the Banners Pick A Punch to create a banner on the Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla Cardstock. I punched out the two leaves and acorn from the  Brushed Metallic Cardstock using the Copper, Brass and Gold. I created a loop with the Embroidered Ribbon and tied it with the Metallic Ribbon. I popped the leaves and sentiment up with dimensionals and love how the card finished off!

Beautiful Autumn-1

Here is one last card I featured on my blog a week or so ago using the Gilded Autumn Suite. For instructions, measurements and supplies for this card click the picture.  It’s such a beautiful and easy card to make!
