Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. New in the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday catalog is the Falling For Leaves Bundle. I’ve taken my project idea directly from the catalog (have a look on page 45). The Stampin’ Up!® Concept Artists have created this beautiful design, and I’ve changed it up a bit to fit my own project. What attracted me about this project is the tone on tone stamping. When the same color ink and cardstock are used together, the finished look reads as a solid object or image but with detail.

Falling For Leaves Bundle
Falling For Leaves is one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog and it’s perfect for a showcase in the SUO Challenges. CASE’ing a project is to “C”opy “A”nd “S”elective “E”dit another’s project. I stayed fairly close to the design in the catalog with a few exceptions, a few ink color changes and some small changes with the embellishments. The overall effect I get from this project is the tone on tone stamping. Pear Pizzazz ink stamped onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock is how I mean this is tone on tone and it is a remarkably easy method of achieving rich colors.
In the card base, the leaf image is stamped in different generations of the same color ink and this method continues as well for the die cuts. I the case of the long leaf in Mint Macaron, there is not a coordinating stamp. I grabbed another image from the stamp set and stamped around the cardstock before making the die cut. This way the look matches the rest of the tone on tone stamping.
Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card project. Links are here that you can click to get product info and purchase items, at no additional cost to you, as well. Thank you for your support with your purchase.
