Woo Hoo. Fall is here! I love fall for its cooler temps, long sleeves, college football, bon fires (with s'mores, of course), colorful leaves, and the reminder that change can be beautiful.

Today's FREE Project Sheet features the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set and Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. Mix and match your favorite fall colors to make this beauty of a card!

Happy Fall y'all and Happy Stamping too!


Mixing & Matching with Embossing Folders

Typically, we choose to use embossing folders to create backgrounds on our cards. In this card making demonstration, I show you how to make your embossed card stock the focal point of your cards and how fun it is to mix and match with embossing folders for a unique look. I hope you enjoy this video replay of my September 21st Facebook Live, and then will pull out your embossing folders and put these techniques to use. 

 

It's easy to create beautiful fall cards with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.

Stylish Sketches Simple Stamping

In today's post, I'm sharing one of my favorite new, and often overlooked, new products of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog - the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes. You get 20 precut and scored 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards, 20 envelopes, plus a sturdy box to store your finished cards or to give them as a gift. All this for just $10.00. It's a great value both in what you get for the price and for the convenience allowing you to get off to a quick start in your card making. I've paired these Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes with the Stylish Sketches Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set to make some quick and easy, yet fabulous, cards. I used the wonderful Watercolor Pencils to color the sketched images of the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set. And did you know the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set can be yours FREE when you place a $50 Stampin' Up! order? Yes, it's true! But don't wait too long. Our Summer Sale-A-Bration promotion ends August 31st and all Sale-A-Bration products are available while supplies last only.

Much Gratitude in Misty Moonlight

Hello Stampin' Peace Friends and Happy Friday! I'm spending a few days in Sarasota, Florida, with my dear friend and Stampin' Up! upline Susi. We're "attending" the Stampin' Up! OnStage@Home Virtual Event together and, of course, doing some stamping. I'm so grateful to Susi for inviting me to share the OnStage@Home event with her and to enjoy a few extra days with her and her husband. No doubt, I'll be enjoying the Florida sunshine and warmth. I always have fun with Susi and Denny and appreciate them always making me feel like "a friend whose become family". I'm blessed and grateful. 

Today, I'm showing you a batch of customer Thank You cards I made with a beautiful Misty Moonlight print from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set.

Torn Paper Technique!

It's always fun learning new techniques. I was inspired to demonstrate the Torn Paper Technique with you all after seeing my friend Marti Blair do it. I love it. It's easy and fun and really packs a punch to a simple card. I chose fall colors to use with the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set for this video tutorial. I hope you'll give this technique a try and share what you make using it.

Did you know you can get the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle FREE?

It's true. When you join my Stampin' Up! community through September 30th, you can choose a Bundle from our Holiday Mini Catalog absolutely FREE. Click on the following link to see all 12 bundle options:  Download FLYER_SAB_JOIN_NA

Now, let's do the math to see your saving when you purchase a Starter Kit. Our Starter Kit is completely 100% customizable and includes $125 in product of your choice! You pay just $99 + sales tax and it all ships to you FREE. So for approximately $107.50 (based on 7.5% sales tax where I live), you'd get $125 chosen by you PLUS a FREE BUNDLE from the Holiday Mini Catalog for an additional savings of $31.50 - $60.25 (depending on the free bundle you choose). WOW!

How much would that all cost you if you don't purchase the Starter Kit??? $125 product cost + $12.50 shipping + $10.31 sales tax (based on 7.5%) for a total of $147.81. That's a HUGE difference, and the total doesn't even include the cost of the additional Bundle that is free for those who join my team. 

So if you love stamping and paper crafting and have a long wish list, why not consider getting the most you can for your money now? Please know that I welcome anyone and everyone to my Merry Stampers Team of 60+ demonstrators. My team includes business builders as well as "happy discount shoppers".

Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

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. 

IMG_0150 (1)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.

I love my monthly Paper Pumpkin Kits. Each month a surprise paper crafting kit is delivered to my house with everything I need to create beautiful cards. If you're interested in card making and paper crafting, this is a great way to start. And if you're already experienced, you can put your own twist on these kits by creating alternate projects with your kit contents.
