Thank you for hopping around with us as we share fall themed projects using our fabulous Stampin’ Up! products from the holiday catalog which goes lives today! You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I settled on inking up my Gather Together stamp set with cajun craze ink for the maple leaf, sentiment and subtle background stamping. The Gathered Leaves dies perfectly cut the maple leaf. It’s popped up on a dimensional with linen thread behind. I quickly created this card at a family retreat for my sister so she could participate in our card swap. She did not have time to make a set of cards prior to the retreat. I still wanted her to go home with a set since she enjoys paper crafting just as much as me:)

The Gather Together stamp set has the roundish circle stamp for a subtle background effect.

Sometimes a sympathy card is needed

I am grateful to receive a sympathy card in a swap. This occasion is difficult to sit down and create when one is needed. I usually create several to have on hand so that I can just sign and send.

This card was created by Carolynn Lucas for our shoebox swap. It features the top selling and longest running stamp set Lovely as a Tree.

Here are the images for the stamps in the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. You can see why this set is still very popular!

Comment below with how long you have had Lovely as a Tree in your stash or if you are just acquiring this stamp set!

I borrow Lovely as a Tree from Mom’s collection. I can’t relay the copyright date on it since it is visiting my sister Tricia’s house right now. Mom said it was one of the first sets she bought and it still ranks high as a favorite set!
