I LOVE This Card!


Stampin up stampin' up! mary fish fall fest PPA219

I’m typically my toughest critic.  However, this autumn card went together with ease and really made me smile.


I used this weeks’ Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA219) as my color inspiration.  Check out what the PPA Resident Artists have dreamed up with these colors HERE and PLAY ALONG!


  • Falling Leaves!  This sweet, little leaf (Fall Fest photopolymer stamp set) gets cropped with precision using the Stampin’ Up! Fun Fall Framelits Dies.  Buy them as a BUNDLE & SAVE 15%!

  • The “my friend” sentiment is from And Many More stamp set, a “little black dress” of greetings for many occasions.
  • Each leaf is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and mounted on a 1 3/8″ Whisper White square and a color coordinated 1 9/16″ piece of card stock.  The latter was cropped with one of the Stampin’ Up! Squares Collection Framelits Dies.
  • As an alternative, stamp one of the “scary” face images (Fall Fest) on each square and update with a Halloween sentiment!

  • A Crumb Cake base is a neutral background that really balances the strong palette.

    Lovely Mary….wonderful!

  3. Awesome card Mary!! I think I want to make one. Carol Lucas, its cold here too! I had to turn the heat on yesterday! Crazy! Too early. Well it is a little easier to think of winter holidays now that I am cold!! Still love the card and I think it is a great example for a quick make for guests at a party!!

  4. Love this, Mary! It is in the 60’s here near St. Louis and feels like fall.

  5. It will stay warm in Tucson, too! However, the last two mornings (I walk daily) have been really beautiful. Good sign for the future!
