Painted Autumn Fun Fold for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #16

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn! Autumn officially begins tomorrow and I have an easy fun fold card to share with you as we welcome a new season.  Here is my Autumn card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Stampin Up Painted Autumn Fall/Thanksgiving fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s this week’s challenge board.


I chose elements going across the top row: metallic, glow, and autumn colors. I tried to get a photo so you could see the “glow”. I used a battery tea light in the back which shines through the vellum. You could easily place this near a light and get the same effect.

This fun fold card measures 4 1/4 x 8 and is scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, 6 3/4.  I love the mix of fall colors in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Coordinating colors: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla

The DSP strips on each side measure 1 x 4 and the center piece measures 2 3/4 x 4.  I adhered the DSP to the cardstock then used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the leaf out through both layers. I sponged a piece of vellum using Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Lemon Lime Twist inks.  I adhered the vellum to the back of the card using glue dots.  (You can see in the photo above how I framed the back of the vellum using the Layering Squares Framelits to give it  finished look.)

I am thrilled Stampin’ Up brought back the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets! What a difference it makes in adhering the detailed dies.  I adhered a piece of Copper Metallic Foil to the Multipurpose Adhesive before cutting it with out with the detailed leaf die. It was so easy to just peel the backing and adhere to the vellum inside the framelit. If you haven’t tried the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets you need to put them on your next order…they are a must have for anyone who has dies!


I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. I flagged the end and added a small banner in copper foil. I wrapped the Copper Trim and tied a bow on the end. The banner is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

P is for Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP


Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am using the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper pack is found in the Holiday Catalog (page 47).  It has 12 sheets: 2 each of 5 double-sided designs; 1 each of 2 single-sided designs with copper foil. I chose a leaf design today to go with the changing leaves here in Maryland.

I really like the layout of this card design from Linda Heller. I am hoping to meet her in Atlanta when I attend the Stampin’ Up! Convention the beginning of November. She is so talented and very creative!  You can easily change the sentiment and DSP and use it for any occasion. I love the colors of fall.  For my card I used Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon with Very Vanilla.  The Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper is cut at 3 1/4 x 3 1/2.  The Cajun Craze layer is just a smidge (1/8″) larger.  I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla with cajun craze ink and cut it out with the Layering Ovals Framelits. I cut the leaf from Delightful Dijon cardstock using the Paisley Framelits Dies.  I used the fine-tip glue pen to adhere it to a scrap of very vanilla and cut it out with my paper snips.  I attached the sentiment layer and the leaf with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a candy dot to the leaf.
