I’m Lovin’ the Stampin’ Up! Leaf Punch!

Stampin Up Leaf Punch Autumn Fall Birthday Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

A wreath made with the Stampin’ Up! Leaf Punch steals the show on today’s autumn birthday card.  However, tweak the colors and it becomes a baby card, traditional Christmas (blend a variety of greens), mixed metals (copper, silver, gold) or simply go ALL solid!  

NEW!  The Leaf Punch is on the list of My Favorite Things from the Holiday Catalog here.

Stampin Up Leaf Punch Autumn Fall Birthday Card Ideas Inspiration - Mary Fish StampinUp

This home decor catalog arrived in the mail Saturday and was my inspiration for using Fresh Fig, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry.  How did I do?

I love hearing from you. If you have a question or thoughts to share about today’s post, please, COMMENT HERE.


  • I punched four of each color and layered one color at a time.  Cherry Cobbler was first to define the top, bottom and sides of the wreath.

  • I used Snail adhesive on the stems to that I still had a little “wiggle room” to move the leaves as I layered.
  • Yum!  The Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon is a delight to work with and doesn’t overpower the bold wreath design.
  • A pop of Pumpkin Pie (Brights Enamel Shapes) ties in the sentiment (Happiest of Days).

  • Fabulous find!  I love how the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (on the envelope flap) complements the shape of the leaves from the Leaf Punch.

    This leaf wreath would also make neat place cards for a Thanksgiving table.
