When I joined Stampin' Up! almost 13 years ago, I joined to take advantage of the discount and be my own best customer. I loved that I saved 20% off my orders, which helped me keep to my budget and get more value for my money. Over the years, I have met so many wonderful people and shared the experience with people who decided to join my team and the Stampin' Up! family. I love that I get to choose my own path for my business and the amazing products have helped spark my creativity over the years. The Starter Kit is an fantastic value at $99 and you get to choose $125 in product plus get free shipping. Add on the free bundle during Sale-a-bration and it really is amazing value. There is no requirement to sell or host parties or classes. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I would be happy to talk to you and answer your questions.
For my card design today, I chose to use the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle, which is one of the bundles you can choose free with your Starter kit this month. I chose to create a Fall themed card but this bundle is so versatile that it can be used to create projects for any season. I paired it with a piece of Merry Merlot designer series paper from the Neutrals 6"x6" Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the frame for the leaves as well as the sentiment label. Stampin' Up!'s coordinating products help make designing and creating projects simple and stress free, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned crafter.

I love the colors of Fall and Stampin' Up!'s coordinating products help make it easy to choose the right colors and products to create a beautiful card design. I stamped the leaves with the stamp image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and die cut them with the coordinating die from the Intricate Leaves Dies. I used Gold embossing powder to heat emboss the background design on the designer series paper layer as well as the sentiment from the Handsomely Suited stamp set. To pop up the focal panel and the sentiment label, I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add dimension to the design. The Gilded Gems add a touch of bling to this otherwise clean and simple card design. The Gorgeous Leaves Bundle is so versatile and a great additional to your crafting supplies to use all year round. It is just one of the amazing bundles you can choose for your free bundle for your Starter Kit during Sale-a-bration.

  1. I love the gold embossing on those deep, rich colors! And nothing says Fall like stitching for some reason, so those die cuts are perfect. Thanks for sharing :-D

    1. Thank you Tanya. Heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques and I love how the Gold embossing steps up the design.
