Autumn Leaves Ensemble!

Don’t you just love fall when the weather is crisp and cool and the leaves look like a colorful shawl spread over the trees? In this tutorial, you’ll learn to replicate those beautiful fall leaves with the Vintage Leaves stamp set and a little ink and cardstock. You’ll use them to create a beautiful fall bowl and greeting card. And I’ll show you a fun way to use the new Stampin’ Up! Cotton Paper Assortment to dress up an ordinary candle. Each of these projects would make a fun class, or you could offer all three together as a stamp camp.

Farmer's Market Produce Stand Ensemble!

Create an adorable produce stand (card box), complete with decorative awning and banner, to hold a pretty set of greeting cards—at least six cards and envelopes!  This ensemble features the gorgeous Farmers Market Designer Series Paper, and you will learn two fun and decorative paper techniques that create pretty focal points on some of the cards.  Also included in this tutorial is a Mini Muslin Bag with a stamped and colored image—you won’t believe how easy it is to create!  The Mini Muslin Bag is a great companion to the “produce” stand, especially when filled with an assortment of postage stamps (and some chocolate, too).
