What have you canned this fall?

The Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog contains a new Perfectly Preserved Bundle that would attract any person in your life including those focused on canning their fall harvest. Created exclusively with stamps from the Perfectly Preserved stamp set, this card captures the last bright images from summer. Apples, pears, corn, cherries and two different flowers coordinate with the canning jar and lid found in this stamp set. My card does not feature the coordinating framelit dies that are part of the Perfectly Preserved Bundle, but these perfectly frame the images and help you create layered projects without cutting each image with a scissors. This card contains all Stampin' Up! products: Perfectly Preserved stamp set Cardstock: whisper white, midnight muse, gumball green Classic Ink: marina mist, midnight muse, gumball green Accessories: Stampin' dimensionals, 1/8" taffeta ribbon in marina mist Punch: small oval Big Shot with large scallop edgelit die Watch my blog for more fall creations as I try to use up my old products while playing with the new ones.

Use It All This Fall

After being a demonstrator for so many years, I have accumulated plenty of supplies (and stamps)!   My cabinet still protects cardstock that was retired in 2005 during a color renovation.  A few of life's events have prevented me from focusing my energy on getting these supplies used up, so I have decided to try my best to use it up this fall.  This card features the current stamp set "Curly Cute" words with a flower from a retired hostess set all mounted on top of green galore and designer series paper from years ago.  It is amazing how the current Melon Mambo ink looks great with this designer series paper.  This paper has been around so long that it is not even double-sided.
