Simply Saturday: Grateful

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I shared a card using the “Motley Monsters” Designer Series paper and said that I would be sharing more. So today I have used the a piece of the leftovers from yesterday to create a fall card … a card of Gratitude.

My base colors are Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry which comes from the designer paper, and then I turned the designer paper (yes … this is from Motley Monsters) and turned it so the leaves appear to be falling to the bottom.


I used the new “Merry Everything” stamp set and the coordinating “Note Tag” punch, then topped it off with the “Tangelo Twist” ribbon.  You can save 15% if you bundle the two on your purchase.

I tipped the greeting so it also appeared to by gently falling with the leaves.  Don’t you just love autumn!?

The greeting was of course “popped” up with our Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Dimensionals. The inside was completed with a piece of Whisper White for your note, and a touch of the designer paper at the bottom.


Such a sweet and simple card that can be created in just minutes!

Thank you so much for stopping by Linda’s Stampin’ Escape today … I am truly grateful.

Have a wonderful day ~


Oh yes … I was going to tell you which of the “Motley Monsters” on yesterdays card was my favorite … It’s that cute little skeleton!  Here’s a list of ingredients for today’s card.


Holiday Catalog Sneak Peak … Simply Grateful

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Last week I teased with my Holiday Catalog order arrival, so today I thought I would share a little sneak peek into that catalog!

Today I’ll begin with my favorite of the four seasons … FALL.  I just love those warm days and cool nights, and the wonderful smell of Autumn.  It’s just fun and colorful, like a celebration that kicks off our holiday season.  Hmmm… makes sense, doesn’t it!

OK … enough chit – chat!  Grab a piece of paper and a pencil, because you are going to want to write down all these scrumptious new products ….


My base is “Baked Brown Sugar” and I teamed it up with the new “Under the Tree” Specialty Designer Paper.  It is double sided and a bit thicker than our regular cardstock, so it’s going to be great for your cards, and your holiday projects.

The “Grateful for You” comes from the stamp set “Merry Everything”.   I liked the way the lines from “YOU” on my greeting, plays off the lines of my designer paper!

The greeting was punched out with the new “Note Tag Punch”.  I stamped a second tag to add a touch of color.  I topped off the greeting with the Mossy Meadow Stitched Satin Ribbon which is found in the annual catalog with the In-Colors.

The precious little leaves come from our new “Fun Fall” Framelit Dies.  I gave them a crease in the middle for some added dimension and then sponged the edges to soften them up a bit.  My leaves are Mossy Meadow, Tangerine Tango, and Cherry Cobbler.  All are popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.


The colors of fall really warm this sweet card, and it is a simple card to recreate.  I hope it inspired you today.

The items from the Holiday Catalog will not be available until the 28th, so I will only list the items from the Annual Catalog.  Please let me know if you will be needing a Holiday Catalog!

Have yourself a warm and wonderful day ~
