The Gilded Autumn Suite boasts beautiful nature-inspired imagery, accented with gold and copper foiling to give autumn an inufsion of elegance. The suite features the colors of Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla!I knew using this suite, my card was going to have a simple design, but was going to be gorgeous when done!
I started with a base of Cajun Craze then layered the following:
4x5 1/4 Early Espresso
2 3/4x4 1/2 DSP
1/2x4 1/2 Brushed Metallic
2 1/2x3 DSP and flagged the ends
1 1/4 Very Vanilla Circle and finally a 1x2 3/4 Crumb Cake Strip
The leaves and acorn were punched out using the Autumn Punch Pack (Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso) I added some gold floss onto the circle creating loops and then adhered the punch-outs.
The greeting, from Timeless Tulips stamp set, was stamped in Early Espresso.

Thank you for joining me for another month of Stampin Friends Blog Hop! We have a jam pack hop this month with so many talented papercrafters!!! August theme is Well WIshes. I think this theme is great for saying "Hi" to friends & family and sharing some well wishes. Letting them know we are thinking about them even during this crazy times!
I hope you came from Kim Lamos Blog and be sure to continue to Jo Blackman's Blog, their projects were really amazing!
If you missed someone along the way, you can find a list of all hop participants at the end of my projects.
First, I will share my card with you! I was inspired by a card challenge to use a cardsketch. I will share that sketch so you can see the measurements! I used the Prized Peony Stamp Suite, stamp set, matching dies, elegant faceted gems, ribbon and DSP. The cardbase is Highland Heather and Gray Granite layers. I stamp the flower in black ink, nut stamped off once, as I didn't want the black to be so dark. Then I colored the flower using the light and dark Highland Heather and Soft Seafoam Stampin Blends. Before adhering the flower with dimensionals, I added a swirl of the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon and finished off with the Elegant Faceted Gems. And last but not least I went over the flower with Wink of Stella.
Below is a picture of the cardsketch I used, it includes the measurements for this card!
For my project, I decided to revist I project I put together for a vendor event. I really love this and have used a version of it many times for quick gift giving! My girls like to give treats and gift cards for gives and this comes together quickly to give a fun gift to friends. So for this, I choice some bath soaks, lavender candles, hand cream and a lip balm. You can use anything really to build this pampering package! After I made it my daughters said I should have added some facemasks.....maybe for the next set! I used acetate card boxes to hold everything. Now, Stampin Up does sell them, but they aren't wide enough! I found the perfect size on Amazon.
I have fun decorating the box and it depends on what I put inside that drives my mood.
I used the same colors and started with the Peony Garden DSP. I love that one side was a more solid pattern and then the opposite was a Gray Granit Floral. Although most of the paper is covered by the products inside, I like that there was a "background" to the box.
Now I could have just cut the DSP to fit inside the box, but I like the wrapped look.
To make the wrap, I used a piece of DSP that measures 4 1/2"x10 1/2" you can see in the third picture below, how I wrap the paper on cover just the ends. I use glue dots on the corners to secure in place. You can just use the belly band to hold the wrap in place, but the glue dots prevents the edges of the paper from curling up.
Then I cut 2 pieces of cardstock1 7/8"x11" and 1 7/8"x 4 7/8". I gently wrap the longest piece around the box, crease were the paper would fold and then determine where it will end, then adhere the shorther piece on. I use my bone folder to make a crisp line where the paper folds. And then wrap it around the box and adhere the 2 ends together.
For the DSP, I just cut a 1" strip and adhered it to the cardstock as I wrapped it around. Now you can cut 2 pieces of DSP so it wraps completely, but I knew that part would be covered. So I just used 1. I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3x3 and then used the edgelit in the Peony dies and trimmed the edges off 2 sides of the square, just enough to cut the edge off.
I used dimesionals to adhere the white CS to the band.
The flower was made the same way I made for the card and I added the ribbon and gems to match.
I love it! So simple yet so elegant!
