Beautiful Autumn Suite - two colourways

Beautiful Autumn Gilded Stampin Up

I’ve just spent a week in the beautiful Lake District, where the autumn colours were rich and stunning. I do love this time of year, which is why I was so drawn to the Gilded Autumn Suite.

This card was inspired by one created by a Stampin’ Up!® designer. It uses the same sketch and the same Beautiful Autumn bundle, but I’ve changed the colours to use the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper.

I have adapted the project to suit the products I have, so have used the Story Label Punch for my main greeting and yes, even for those semi-circular elements.

Punches can be trimmed, punched again and more. I have create the illusion of semi-circular elements using the same punch as I used for the greeting, simply by trimming off the ends and only allowing the curve to show. You get two from each punch, too.

The card is finished off with some Basket Weave ribbon in Mint Macaron, Linen Thread and some Gilded Gems for a touch of bling.

In contrast, the Stampin’ Up!® designer went for a much more vibrant colour scheme for this project, using the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and Bumblebee Ribbon. The project uses four of the five 2020-2022 in Colors and has a much more flamboyant feel. It just shows how you can get very different looks from the same stamp set, simply by changing the colour scheme.

Take a look at some more ideas from Stampin’ Up!® designers...

This fun project is a decorated Round Tin, and uses the Stitched So Sweetlydies and Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack.
