I've been making a few Wine Bottle Tags for holiday gift giving. Below are ones for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used the Gilded Autumn Suite and a sheet from World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper for my Thanksgiving Wine Bottle Tag. The Christmas one was made with products in my October Paper Pumpkin Kit, Joy to the World. I always love to make a few alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin Kits.
Each Wine Bottle Tag starts with 4" x 12" piece of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or card stock. I score 3 1/2" from the top and fold gently. I punch a 1 1/2" circle to hang the tag. To create the "ring" that goes around the hole, punch a 1 1/2" circle in center of 2 1/4" square of coordinating paper. Then punch with 2" Circle Punch centering the hole in the 2" circle opening to and punch to get the ring.

The ever so popular Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper is back in stock. This paper has been re-stocked several times because of its popularity and demand. It was back ordered for a while then went was not even available to order, but it's back now. Order your Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP now to make your autumn and Thanksgiving cards and paper crafts. This DSP and the entire Gilded Autumn Suite is GORGEOUS. Don't be fooled by its name, though, because it's not just for fall and Thanksgiving. Many of the DSP prints can be used for other occasions such as sympathy, thinking of you, support and encouragement cards. Many would be great to use for masculine cards. Nature lovers would appreciate the beautiful color combination and botanical prints and patterns. And of course, the Gilded Autumn products would make great birthday, thank you, congratulations, and retirement cards too.
I hope you'll enjoy the following video demonstration in which I use the Gilded Autumn Suite to decorate Rectangle Tins to use as decorations, place cards, and treat favors all in one for my Thanksgiving table. These personalized gifts are such fun to make. Mine will be filled with candies, but I bet together we can come up with lots of things to put in these decorative tins.
I'm excited to make a few more of these Gilded Autumn Decorated Tins - one for each of my Thanksgiving guests. They'll look so pretty as place cards to decorate my Thanksgiving table.
TIP: Adhere Foil Paper to Foam Adhesive Sheets before die cutting Playful Alphabet Letters.
How about those darling copper Trinkets? Aren't they sweet?
I decorated the inside top and bottom of the tin before filling with treats.
Embossing takes your handmade cards to an extraordinary level. Whether you emboss with embossing folders or embossing powders & heat tool, your cards are sure to impress. You can do both of these techniques on all sorts of papers including card stock, vellum, and foil paper. In the video demonstration below, I'll show you "dry" embossing with the Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder and "heat" embossing with Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Tool. Both of these techniques will help you create extraordinary cards.
The Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder with the Brass Foil Paper makes this card simple yet elegant.
The Brushed Metal Card Stock pack has 2 sheets each of the 3 colors used on this card. All 3 colors are gorgeous and work well with the Gold Cards & Envelopes.
There is such beautiful detail in the Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder.
I used both the embossing folder technique and heat embossing technique on these 2 cards.
The Banners Pick A Punch gives you 2 choices of how to punch banners with 1/2", 3/4", and 1" strips.

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.
The card sketch used to make each of these Beautiful Autumn cards is perfect for showing off the many different prints in the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.

A few leaves stamped in Mint Macaron dress up the inside of this card nicely.
The following 2 cards use some of the prints with metallic accents that make the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper classy and elegant.
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.
Layers I used on the inside of the card match the layers on the front of the card.
A very similar card to the one above, this one uses a couple different papers, Cajun Craze ink, & a Mint Macaron ribbon.
I love the basket weave detail and sheen of this Mint Macaron ribbon.

Autumn is just around the corner. As I look forward to the changing colors of the fall leaves here in Ohio, I am reminded that with change comes beauty, and like the leaves on our trees, sometimes it is ok to let go.
