Focal Friday ~ Loyal Leaves from Stampin’ Up!


Welcome back to my Focal Friday!!!

I am featuring the beautiful “Loyal Leaves” stamp set by Stampin’ Up! today because it really spoke to me after seeing these fall photos. I love the rich colors of fall don’t you??



My first sample I created my own designer paper by taking a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and stamping it with my Stampin’ Up! fall color palette seen above. Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider are 2 of our newest IN Color’s and I paired them up with Cajun Craze and Shaded Spruce.  These colors together are just perfect for our fall focal photographs.

I have used the Stitched Rectangles die set on both of today’s cards. This is a must have die set, #151820, if you have not had a chance to see it before. I also chose a few foliage leaf dies from the “Nature’s Roots” and “In the Woods” stamp sets. To jazz it up I used a Champagne Foil Sheets #144748, and the Basket Weave & Metallic Mesh Ribbon combo pack from the holiday catalog. Isn’t that an adorable little bow? #153553


My second card today was really outside my comfort zone but I really love how it turned out. This one was a lot of fun! I took out 4 of my Stampin’ Up! embossing folders (Linked below). Then I embossed them with Gold & Bronze Foil Sheets. I then matted them with Early Espresso Card stock and arranged them on the front of my A2 card layered on top of a piece of Bumblebee colored paper from the Flowers of Every Season.


For the sentiment I stamped the “Missing You” stamp from the Loyal Leaves stamp set. It fits perfectly on the stitched rectangle dies. Again I also used that adorable metallic trim.
