Magnificent Maple Thank you …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am super excited to share with you my first creation form the new Holiday catalog!  Did you get yours?  If not, contact me by e-mail ( and I will be sure to get you one.

How do you like the new layout?  I love that Stampin’ Up! put so many samples in there for us!!  It’s a bit of a teaser, showing us all those samples, and then the stamp sets.  How fun is that!

Today I will be using the “Magnificent Maple” (131868 – wood only) stamp found on page 18 of the Holiday catalog.  It’s part of a bundle that I received for free.  Stampin’ Up! has different ways their demonstrators can earn free product, to help keep our cost of doing business down.  I love that!  If you’ve ever thought of doing what I do, let’s talk.  Now when you become a member of my team, you have a choice of a free bundle for yourself.  CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

Now onto the card … I began with the beautiful “Sweater Weather” (132184) Designer Series paper.  This made my color choices easy.  If you look on the back of the package of your Designer Series paper … Stampin’ Up! has put a list of the colors!  So, from the colors listed, I chose Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango.


I wanted to stay true to the colors on the paper pack and that is why I chose the Whisper White to stamp on.  I toned it down a bit and created some dimension by gently sponging the edges in Tangerine Tango.

For added texture and to get that fall feeling, I used the new “Burlap Ribbon” (132140).  It also highlights the the leaf and sets it off the page.  I think I’m going to be using this unique ribbon quite a bit.  Works great for masculine cards too!

To create the multi-colored leaf … I inked up the stamp with Crushed Curry, then with sponge daubers, I added the Tangerine Tango and then Rich Razzleberry to the very tips.

To decorate the inside, I just used the scrap piece of designer paper from cutting the front piece, then “huffed” on the stamp to re-stamp the inside.  We stampers let nothing to waste… not even a little ink on a stamp! lol

To finish off the card, I stamped the greeting in Chocolate Chip.  The “Thank You” comes from the stamp set “Perfectly Penned” ( 128703 – Wood / 122892 – Clear).  This stamp set is one of my “go to” sets, I love the font and find it goes with many different styles of cards.


I hope you enjoyed a look into the new catalog.  I have so much more to show you, so be sure to stop by… or better yet, join us for one of my fun stamping events!
