Happy October! Today also marks the beginning of a brand new Stampin' Up! year. Through the course of 2020, I have challenged myself to learn and grow and try new things. I've taken some business training and participated in Stampin' Up! Leadership Summit. As I look ahead to the new year, I am excited. I'm encouraged. I'm motivated. I'm goal driven. I'm striving to better my best in all areas. I'm happy to be continuing on in my Stampin' Up! journey.
In my September 28, 2020, Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live, I introduced one of the easiest card sketches ever. I love using this card sketch to show off Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers. The cards I made in the video below all feature the absolutely stunning Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. The fall prints, colors, and metallic accents make this one of my most favorite paper packs ever. I also used the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set and coordinating punches in the 3 cards you'll see in my video and in the photos below. Enjoy this card making demonstration and consider the limitless possibilities when using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers with this easy card sketch.
I embellished this card with leaves and acorns punched from Designer Series Paper with the Autumn Punch Pack and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The ribbon is one from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack.

Everything posted to this Private Facebook Group on October 3rd will be saved in the group for you to access throughout the entire month of October. We’d really like you to join us Live on October 3rd , though, as that’s a bit more fun.
