I can almost smell the crisp fresh smell of fall leaves. I want to slip on a snugly sweater and the season. The Colorful Seasons Bundle has been very popular and there are great reasons for that. There are wonderful snowflakes, summer beach chairs, and spring flowers. You can make this card with these products from Stampin’ Up!

I’m participating in a tag swap and I thought I’d post the directions here. It was inspired by the card I’ll be posting on Thursday, so I guess you can consider it a preview. I just love the color combination!

I love the color combination! I admit though that I struggled when designing this one. I thought I knew what I wanted. I wanted to do a border with the pumpkins. I wanted to use Banner Blessings. I grabbed my Taggers to find the shape and sized layer I wanted. I wanted I wanted gold and sparkles. I wanted this color combination.

I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base and it just wasn’t right. Maybe some texture would help, so I used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions embossing folder and it was a lot better. I removed the gold and it still wasn’t right. I tried switching the card base to Elegant Eggplant, and it just made all the difference for this card!

And I did use the pumpkins for a border. It’s hidden inside.

Banner Blessings was available and on sale for half price when I recorded the video. It’s only while supplies last. It’s one of those Secret Stamp Sets. If it’s gone, don’t despair. Use one of the greetings in Basket of Wishes, the thanks from Jar of Love (#141587), Thankful Thoughts (Wood #141519  or Clear #141522) or another set you may already own.

New catalog time!  Whoo hoo!!!

Holiday Catalog

There are so many things I put on my wish list! I wish I could buy everything in this catalog! Stampin’ Up! has helped us buy more by including 15 bundles! Yay!

If you share my Evernote Current Products notebook, you’ll be happy to know I have all the new products added with the images. I don’t seem to have access to the stamp images in German, but they’re there for French stamps. I think Therese is busy translating the contents for the French stamps. I’d love a volunteer to translate the stamp contents into German.

Also, I have prepared the labels and stamp case slips for the new catalog and they are all posted. I have created the case inserts and just added the images.  As soon as I finish this post I’ll upload those as well.

If you don’t have a catalog, there is a link to the online version posted on the right.

Here are just a few of my favorite things.Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

What are some of your favorites?
Some of my favorites are loved by others as well. There is concern that some items may go on backorder (again!). I’m sure Stampin’ Up! expects every product to be loved by all of us, and they try to have plenty ready to ship to us. But they also don’t want inventory sitting in the warehouse. I can’t imagine how they can avoid backorders, but they are trying. There is a new warning on the back cover: Product availability may be limited towards the end of the catalog sales period. Don’t wait to wait too long to put in your order.

For All Things Thank YouI love this quick card for Thanksgiving or just a thank you card!  Though I used a Big Shot to cut out the leaves, you could certainly make this card just by stamping the leaf with the three colors.  You could also stamp them on scrap paper and cut them out.
