Simple Saturday: Autumn Spice Is Nice

Stampin' Up! Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper (120808) from the Holiday Mini Catalog is incredibly "nice" for a variety of fall projects (and beyond).  It coordinates with the Day of Gratitude stamp set (WM 120835, CM 121148), one of my favorites in the catty) and it's heavier "specialty" weight adds substance to 3-D projects.

I played with the coordinating Autumn Spice patterns to create today's Simple Saturday cards in a jiffy.  The top card and card below were created using the Perfect Punches Stamp Set (WM 117022, CM 120516).  Each stamp coordinates with a punch for quick and easy cards.

Popped from Cajun Craze card stock, a daisy transitions to a fall palette.  My daisy was created with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439) and Daisies #2 Flower Bigz Die (114520):

  1. Hi Mary – This Autumn Spice is new to us in Australia in the Autumn Winter Mini – and your collection of cards is just scrumptious! This top fold style card is my favourite but my Mum keeps complaining that they won’t stand up and keep spreading out and falling flat. Do you have any tips on keeping them standing?

  2. Mary, I just love every single one of these. Sooooo cute!!!!
