Stampin' Up! "Leaves" me Happy! FMS1

Stampin' Up! and Leaves, well I couldn't be more happy!  I love them both.  
Hmm, and I just realized, I guess I can't get enough of either of them.

A couple days ago I posted a much simpler, Card with Leaves.  (HERE)
But I actually made this card first to play along with the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge #1.

Do you see all of these elements in my card?

Gently Falling

But you could easily substitute it with Stampin' Up! s new Magnificient Maple (131868) 
It's a bargain at just $9.95 for the wood mount stamp!
Magnificent Maple Wood-mount Stamp 
To get the glitter effect  I first stamped in Crushed Curry and accented with
Heat and Stick Powder (100625) and the new 
Orange Glitter  (132206) (sold with black glitter) 
from the Holiday Mini.  

What could be more natural with the leaves than a WoodGrain (127821) embossed background?
Tie it all up with some Burlap Ribbon (132140) and you are good to go.
I use a few dabs of Crystal Effects to hold down the Burlap Ribbon, super easy and secure!

Were you wondering where these little gems came from?  They are candy dots, 
dotted with Crystal Effects and then sprinkled with Orange Glitter.  You can see I must have had some crumbs of Dazzling Diamonds in my coffee filter.
Did you know that you can use a coffee filter to catch your embossing powder or Glitter Crumbs?  There is no static when you pour them back in the jar.  Really helps keep the Crumb factor down!

One more peek at the card.  The lovely rectangle of plaid comes from the 
loaded with awesome patterns and fall colors

Thanks for following my blog!
