Autumn Splendor

If you’ve received the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog in the mail, you’ll recognize the fabulous new fall images and Designer Series Paper found on pages 12-13. I decided to try the thumping technique with two of the leaves, and incorporate them into Beate’s Weekend Sketch (WSC93).

The other day I was reading about neglected tools in stamping and that made me pull out my crimper. The corrugated Kraft card stock reminded me of the corduroy button I wanted to use on top of the grosgrain bow (and I learned how to tie this embellished bow from an exclusive Dirty Dozen/Fan Club tutorial by Karen Giron on SCS). I’ll be showing you how to do this in my next stamp class!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Very pretty Vera. I’ll probably be able to attend on Friday, if you still have a spot open. No one has responded to my class yet. I guess I can’t do it so passively!

    Beautiful! Sure can’t wait to get my catalog — hope it comes soon.

    Have you heard from Donna and Carla? Both want to attend your Saturday class.
