Magnificent Maple

Happy Fall, dear crafting friends...

How are you all doing?

Crafting and blogging schedules are not as often as I would love to (as you can see), but I am grateful that we are healthy, doing well and thankful for whatever we have on our plate.

The Holiday Catalog is here, full of lovely Holiday inspiration. Goodies are available to order now.

Magnificent Maple is one of the stamp available in the Holiday Catalog. I am creating my own home made patterned paper using just one single stamp, and I am excited to report that the outcome comes out really lovely. My color combo is Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Baked Brown Sugar. As you can see, I stamped it on a piece of 8.5"x11" Very Vanilla card stock.

Here is the first simple and easy card that I made with the pretty maple leaves. My first Thanksgiving card for the year.

And then, I made another one with left over strips of DSPs (from DSP Sweater Weather- in the Holiday Catalog)- finished off with a Naturals Designer Button and Early Espresso Baker's Twine. The sentiment is from the stamp set Happy Day (in the Annual Catalog) - think I carted this one particular stamp set from this year's Stampin' Up! Convention.

Now, you think would't it be cool to create a set of cards from a whole piece of your home made patterned paper as a gift for a friend?

Happy stamping,
