I used the Stampin’ Up! Acorny Thank You and Vintage Leaves stamp sets to create my card to share today.
My card design was inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 300.
The leaves on my card were inspired by Just Us Girls #363.
I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla cards stock with the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Early Espresso card stock with SNAIL and then to an Emerald Envy card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the leaf images from the Vintage Leaves photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and cut them out with the matching Leaflets Framelits dies. I sponged the leaves with Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and Emerald Envy inks and then adhered them to the card front with SNAIL. I cut three branch images with the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies from Emerald Envy card stock and I adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue over the leaves.
I stamped the acorn images from the Acorny Thank You photopolymer stamp set in Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso inks and then punched the pieces out with the matching Acorn Builder Punch. I adhered the acorn pieces together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze ink. I adhered the acorns to the card front with Glue Dots. I pulled a strand of Linen Thread through a Classy Designer Button, tied a bow and then adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot.
I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Early Espresso card stock, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the sentiment from the Cottage Greeting stamp set in Emerald Envy ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I added an acorn in Cajun Craze and Early Espresso ink on the lower part of the panel inside the card.

Stampin’ Up! items used to create this project:
I wouldn’t have thought to use Emerald Green, but it makes a wonderful fall card!
Thanks Sherry! Emerald Green isn’t my go-to green for fall, but I’m really liking this color combination! 🙂
Beautiful, Amy! Love the embossing! 🙂
Thanks so much Mary! 🙂
I love the acorny thank you set, and the colors you chose for stamping are perfect for fall. Wouldn’t have thought to drop Emerald Envy in there, but it brightens up the other more fall-ish colors 🙂
Thanks Deepa! 🙂
I love the embossing. It reminds me of a cable knit sweater….great for the cooler weather coming. Love your pretty leaves and acorns! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Us Girls!
Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment! 🙂
love this, it’s so pretty and fallish – although hey, it’s snowing here, haha…
Thanks Sandi! Snowing already!!! Wow, it’s been in the mid-80’s here. Yikes!
The sponging on the leaves is a unique idea and very effective. Love the card!
Thanks Susan! 🙂
Those leaves are beautiful and I love how you paired the patterned acorns with them. Love that cable knit background, too. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!
