Simple but stunning Autumn Tree with Fall Leaves

 I used the versatile Life is Beautiful stamp set to make this classic fall tree.

I took a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Vanilla, rounded the corners with the Trio punch.  I stamped the tree in Crumb Cake and then used 3 colors for the leaves:  Merlot, Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee.  

A few tips:  make sure there is space above the tree, it somehow looks better! When adding the leaves, stamp off the ink on a scrap piece of paper (sometimes call second generation stamping) so the color goes on lighter. You can easily add color by stamping more.

Don't forget your leaves on the ground!

I love the new embroidered ribbon (under the hello), about 7" and the ever versatile gold glitter dots add a little something. 

When it was all finished I added the tree to the gold cards - di you see these on page 51 of the catalog (the Holiday catalog) I think they are a "hidden gem".  Love the matching gold envelopes.

I used this set a lot and I'll be posting more options with it this week and next! Don't forget our designer paper sale, I love our products and love them even more with a discount!

Happy crafting MaryKate
