Autumn Themed Blog Hop


I'm excited to be part of the Autumn Blog Hop today.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that share projects with you.  This month they are all "autumn themed".

It is definitely starting to feel more fall like on the West Coast.  Our leaves aren't turning yet, but it has started to cool down.  It has been such a hot, dry summer.  It actually feels good to have cooler weather and even some rain!

I made this card using the Time of Giving Bundle.  I love the dies in this bundle!  I also used the Tailor Made Tags Dies to create the tags.  My inspiration was a project on page 61 of the July to December Mini Catalogue.  The Stampin' Up! Concept Artist used the bundle to decorate a gift, but I used the inspiration to create this card.


  1. Cut Cajun Craze card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Very Vanilla card stock 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss using the Typeworn Type embossing folder.
  3. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  4. Cut out tags from Crumb Cake and Early Espresso card stock using largest, square top tag die.
  5. Stamp leaves on the Crumb Cake tag using Crumb Cake Ink (stamped off).
  6. Cut 4" of ribbon and put through the 2 tags.  Tie a bow around ribbon using Crumb Cake Twine
  7. Adhere the tags together - slightly apart - using Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals at an angle
  9. Cut Very Vanilla cards tock 3/4" x 3" and punch out one end using Lovely Labels punch.
  10. Adhere to top of tag at an angle using Stampin' Seal
  11. Cut out leaves from Bumblebee and Cajun Craze card stock
  12. Stamp leaves on Crumb Cake card stock using Crumb Cake ink.  
  13. Cut out using Dies.
  14. Adhere leaves to tag using Glue Dots and Dimensionals.
  15. Adhere Metallic Dots

You can get all of the supplies needed for the folder from my Online Store!   Check out the supply list below.

Check out my Youtube Video for tips and tricks to make this card. I did this card on a recent YouTube Live so you may notice more chatter in it than my normal videos. Don't forget to subscribe to my Stamping with Melva YouTube Channel
