Stampin up pals paper arts video tutorial
PPABadge Play in the leaves with the PPA!  This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA64) is all about Fall.  Pull the colors from the following photo, grab a leaf stamp or simply kick start your PPA project based on your own impression of the changing season.  Check out the Design Team's challenge samples for a little autumn inspired dazzle.  I have a new 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial for you, too!

A simple card doesn't need a lot of embellishing (that's what keeps it clean).  However, a few dashes of "WOW" are always welcome.  So dust off your Crimper and spend a moment with me in today's 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial.




  • Stampin up pals paper arts video tutorial day of gratitude I love how Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait (all from the Stampin' Up! In Colors Collection) mimic the colors of the changing leaves.
  • Curly Cute stamp set offers a bold sentiment that keeps this card in balance.
  • Play with direction.  I experimented with the direction of the leaves until my brain finally said "here's your stop, ma'am!"
  • Each leaf is stamped on a 1 1/2" Whisper White square.

  1. Very beautiful. Love the crimper comment about having to dust it off…you’re right about that one! Perfect tutorial.

  2. What a clean, simple yet rich-looking card. Love the “crimped” border and the color combos on this Fall foliage design. Awesome video ~ loves those short tutorials!

  3. Loved your WOW video! What a cute card and such a neat trick with the crimper. I tried it and it really turns out so cool! TFS!

  4. i love every thing about this card, i must dig out and dust my crimper!! thanks so much for sharing. i should be getting that set right about now from ups.!!

  5. What a terrific idea, Mary! Always look forward to your clean, crisp projects. And thanks for sharing how you attached the “ribbon” strip.

  6. Thanks Mary and thanks for answering the question about how you glued it down! I was wondering too! Great card and loved the video. So, you don’t need to use the punch upside down! I don’t have that one yet but you sure made it look easy to use and I love the crimping! Thanks for sharing!

  7. love the card…that sentiment is delicous!! and dusting off the crimper, yes indeed! it’s a tool i love for a while then forget…then rediscover and love again!! have a great one friend!!

  8. Mary, this idea is amazing. Love these quick, but unique tips for dressing up our projects

  9. Great question! I used Mini Glue Dots (4 or 5) so I wouldn’t need to apply much pressure to the border and mess up the texture. Adhere close to one end and work your way across as you lay down the “ribbon” and adhesive. You may need to trim a tad at the final end. Hugs, Mary

  10. I look forward to your posts everyday! There is always something new and interesting. I’m curious how you adhere that cute little scrunchy strip to your card.
