Sneak Peek - Special Holiday Pumpkins help you get ready for Fall now

  • Detailed Pumpkins
  • Holiday papers video sneak peek

Holiday Catalog Gourd Goodness 

As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew this would be at the top of my list.  I'm not sure what it is about pumpkins, but I can't wait each year to get my holiday pumpkins to decorate our porch, and then I can't stand to throw them away.  I usually keep them decorating our front porch until December.  Then I haul them out to the forest behind our house and prop them against the exposed roots of an old tree that I can see from my craft room window and I can watch them for a couple more months.  This year I think they lasted until late March before the raccoons or possums broke through the outer walls and started the sad destruction of my lovely holiday pumpkin.

This set is wonderful because it includes so much detail that the pumpkins actually looks real.  I've been grumbling to myself over the changing stamp market that's been moving away from stamps with a lot of fine detail towards stamps that are more simplistic, line drawings.  And then Stampin' Up! gives us this very lovely, detailed pumpkin set as one of the new stamps coming out in the Holiday Catalog. I'm in heaven! I'm just tickled with this stamp set, which includes two step images of pumpkins, gourds, and leaves.   There is a two step stamp for the body of the pumpkins and separate two step stamps for the stems. 

Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper

I used Basic Black for my basecard, then a layer of Old Olive, and then two patterns from the new Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper set, also from the Holiday Catalog coming out September 1.  

I used the Layering squares for the Whisper White layer and one of the scalloped Layering Squares dies for the Basic Black layer.  The stems are stamped in Soft Suede.

The sentiments in Teeny Tiny Wishes includes both the Happy Thanksgiving, which I used on one card, and the Happy Halloween, which I used on the second card.  Both are punched out of Whisper White with the Classic Label punch. Notice the new Black Rhinestone Jewels? Also new.
