This month I’ll be focusing on the fabulous new products in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (my favorite collection of holiday products since I began in 2007) with many sneak peek samples.  Today’s card highlights a peek at For All Things stamp set–an autumn “must-have” that offers soft, pretty images that deliver a watercolor look in snap.  The Holiday Catalog begins Aug. 28.

My color palette was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA214). Check out what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have created for this challenge HERE. The summery color palette could easily transition to fall with richer colors (how about Blackberry Bliss, Hello, Honey and Mossy Meadow)?

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I stamped the leaves and sentiment on a single layer of Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp the images beyond the boundaries of the edges for a more natural look.

  • The Polaroid frame began as a 2 1/2″ x 3″ piece of Island Indigo card stock.  The open area was cropped using the third smallest square die of the Stampin’ Up! Squares Collection Framelits.
  • The Big Shot Magnetic Magnetic Platform is a best friend for keeping the square die from moving during it’s trip through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
  • The frame is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals (skinny bits cut for the narrow areas) and layered over the stamps and sentiment.  I was inspired by a similar layout created by Nichole Heady.

  • In Color Sequins and Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine add pizzazz without overwhelming the balance of the card.

    Oh Mary, I couldn’t come here yesterday, I had a house full of grandkids on their last days of Summer Brake but I just wanted to tell you that I too love this card, I love your Polaroid frame, how fabulous is that?! This card layout is so versatile, you can really put just about anything inside the frame.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  13. A true classic “Mary Fish” card! I do not know if I am ready for fall….but I love the effect of the leaves and the bakers twine is the perfect added touch! Hugs!
