Creation Station: Fall Fun!

#stampinup   It's almost fall here in the United States--although it still feels like summer to me. For this Creation Station hop we're featuring Fall items--stamp sets and specialty papers.

One of my favorite sets from the Stampin' Up Holiday catalog is the "Among the Branches" set along with the coordinating Woodland embossing folder. I thought a Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bag might look good embossed with the Woodland embossing folder. I ran it through my Big Shot and it didn't look good--it looked AWESOME!! I was so pleased how it turned out.

The fall stamp from the "Among the Branches" set says, "Autumn Wishes and Tasty Dishes." I thought it would be fun to turn the circle into a ribbon--like a prize at a county fair.

I stamped the sentiment in Crushed Curry onto a Whisper White scrap. I cut the circle with one of the Circles Collection Framelits and two additional circles in graduated sizes in Early Espresso and Calypso Coral. I added an Early Espresso Banner cut with the Banners Framelits and topped it with a piece of Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper cut with the next smaller sized Banner Framelit.

Continuing the banner theme, I punched two Calypso Coral cardstock banners with the Banner Punch and added them to the back of the medallion before I adhered it to the banners.

I wrapped a length of Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon around the bag and adhered the "blue brown ribbon" to the bag with Stampin' Dimensionals. I completed the ribbon by adding a Gold Glimmer Paper star cut with the Stars Framelits collection.

These gift bags would be so cute filled with some homemade pumpkin cookies. They would make great neighbor gifts!

Here's a close-up of the bag and medallion--look at how cool the embossing is!
