Playing w/ New Holiday Catalog Products

Just Days Away....Yes, the new Stampin'Up Holiday Catalog 2013 
is being released August 1st. I've been playing with several items
and wanted to show you this card I did for the
Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge HERE

Check out what the designers have done, (always inspiring) then get
out your Stampin'Up products and come play along!

I thought it would be fun to take the Kind and Cozy stamp set in the Annual Catalog and give it a Fall theme using products from the Holiday Catalog. Fall? you say. YES, it will start before you know it. Plaids, leaves and a warm beverage just seem to go together. So it seemed fit to use the SWEATER WEATHER Designer paper for my main pattern. Love this plaid, plus there are more! The DSP incorporates 7 colors..Choc. Chip, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Vanilla and White. 

I did mix up my colors a bit though. I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede and Vanilla.

I stamped the gingham circle in Soft Suede and punched it out with a 2 1/2" circle punch. I then stamped the cup in pumpkin pie offsetting it from the center. See the extra steam rising from the cup.  Re-ink just the steam part of the stamp, place a sticky note over the first steam mark, then stamp off a little of the ink before stamping on the extra steam on top of the first steam.

Stamp the Holiday Single stamp MAGNIFICENT MAPLE using soft suede ink on So Saffron Paper ( the saffron paper gives the leaf a warmer effect ).
I created a double bow with Linen Thread which I tied around a piece of Crochet Trim. Use glue dots to attach it to the stem of the leaf and to hold down the tips of the Crochet Trim.

The pretty soft suede trim has cute little holes that magically appear when you use the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch. And finally stamp the " made with love " sentiment on the side panel in Soft Suede.
