Hello, Stampers! Does anyone else feel like it’s been a very fast August this year? WOW! We are on the home stretch to college this weekend. It’s already starting to hit me. I am so glad that I have you all as a wonderful stamping community to keep me company though. I have been raising kids for 36 years – my entire adult life really. I don’t really know what I will do with myself, but my stamping should be good therapy — right?! I haven’t done much lately, that’s for sure. But last week we had some unseasonably cool weather and it really made me think about Fall coming. Then, I remembered about the Big Shot Bigz die, Autumn Accents and its coordinating stamp set, Wonderfall. I thought it would be a great bundle to use with my side step card. You can use what I did OR you might also use the new bundle from the new Holiday Catalog (and you know you can order from it today, right?!).
I meshed old product with current product and you might notice some non-SU items as well (oops!). New stuff includes the In Color Envelope Paper that is such a great weight for layering, and the Into the Wood Elements. I love Mossy Meadow with Tip Top Taupe! Leaves were made using those two colors (the trick to using a Bigz die is to cut THEN stamp) plus Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral. This card went together quite nicely with just a little embellishing and it was ready for the season in no time!
I hope you’ll stop by and check out the rest of the Design Team inspiration over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog. Please get your much loved older stamps out and play along! We would love for you to join us before the challenge closes on Friday, September 11th.
