Hello Fall!

The Halloween decorations have been put away but Fall is still here.  It is my FAVORITE season and Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  I love all the fall decor that is still out, crisp weather, the smell of cinnamon & pumpkin in the air, and being thankful for everything that we have. Speaking of favorites.....the stamp set Lovely as a Tree that has been in the catalog for many years is still one of my favorite sets to use for fall and Christmas card making.

Here is a Hello Fall card made with three sets including Holiday Home by Stampin' Up!   This card has a bit more detail but TOTALLY worth the final outcome!


  • Very Vanilla 5 ½” x 8 ½”; 4 ½” x 3 ¼”; 2 ¼” x ¾”
  • Soft Suede 4” x 5 ¼”; 1” x 2” (for die cutting leaf)
  • Cherry Cobbler 3 ¾” x 5”, 2 ½” x 1 ½” (for die cutting house)
  • Crushed Curry 1” x 2” (for die cutting leaf)
  • Flashback DSP 2 ½” x 1 ½” (for die cutting house)


  1. Stamp the house with black ink onto the Flashback DSP, Stamp again with Black ink onto small Cherry Cobbler Piece.  Die cut both pieces using the House Die.  From the Cherry Cobbler house, cut the roof and the door and adhere onto the DSP house.  TIP: cut the end of the chimney from the DSP house and glue it onto the cherry cobbler roof to give it more of a layered dimension).  Place a medium size pearl at the door knob.
  2. To cut the ovals from both the Cherry Cobbler and the Soft Suede – It’s easier if you adhere both layers together with just a little bit of adhesive in the center.  Be sure the Cherry Cobbler layer is centered onto the Soft Suede.  Using the 4th oval from the center of the framelit set, cut through both layers.  Now using the next largest oval, cut only the Cherry Cobbler piece centering the oval framelit with the smaller opening.
  3. Run the Cherry Cobbler piece through the Big Shot using the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder.
  4. Adhere the Cherry Cobbler embossed oval frame to the soft suede oval frame, making sure the ovals are centered with each other.
  5. Using 2 strands of linen thread (about 4 ½” each) tie and knot around the right edge of the oval frame.
  6. Stamp the trees from Lovely As A Tree onto the 4 ½” x 3 ¼” Very Vanilla card stock with Soft Suede ink.
  7. Stamp the small leaves randomly along the ground using a variety of colors.  Lightly sponge the sky using Soft Sky Ink.
  8. Stamp the banner from the stamp set For All Things using Crushed Curry Ink.  Stamp Hello Fall on top of this…cut around the banner using your scissors….no framelit here – sorry!
  9. Using the leaf framelit, die cut 2 leaves in each of soft suede and crushed curry.  Adhere these back to back with each other catching the end of the linen thread in between the layers. 
  10. Tape the Stamped Very Vanilla panel flat to the Very Vanilla Card.  Using dimensionals adhere the oval framed pieces to your card.
  11. Using dimensionals adhere the house in the oval section of your card.  Also with dimensionals place your sentiment onto your card.

Remember, you do not have to be creative to create - just copy this project! Happy stamping!
