Greetings my friends and fellow stampers. My apologies for not sharing a new project with you yesterday. I spent most of my day tending to those unpleasant matters one must deal with when they are no longer employed (COBRA insurance, unemployment, etc.). But I am happy to say that I have taken care of all of that business and I can now give my pre-order products the attention they deserve.
My first project I will share with you using my pre-order goodies will help prepare you for the upcoming Fall season (although here in Texas we do not really have such a thing – we pretty much go from hot Summer to freezing Winter seemingly overnight in early November). The stamp set I used is called Painted Harvest and makes some beautiful sunflowers as you will see below.
I did not have to put any real thought into the design of this card – I simply CASEd (copy and share everything) the card from page 48 of the Holiday Catalog (it’s not just a catalog, it is also filled with project samples to help motivate your creativity). It is listed as a “quick & easy” project and it truly was quick & easy.
The Painted Harvest stamp set is offered in the Holiday Catalog as a “bundle” with a 3-leaf punch that coordinates with two of the leaf images in the stamp set. When purchased as a bundle, you will save 10% off the cost of both items if you purchased them separately.
Below are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of my card, all of which can quickly be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails:
* Painted Harvest Stamp Set and Bundle will be available for purchase on September 1, 2017.

HOLIDAY CATALOG SNEAK PEEK: Today’s sneak peek video features the Merry Little Christmas Suite (a “mega” suite). Why is it a mega suite? Well after watching the video you will see it is not just any ordinary product suite.
Some of these products did make it into my pre-order so look for projects featuring them coming soon.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
