Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - September 2023

I love sending thank you cards to my customers!  This month I used the All About Autumn Suite from the new Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue.  It's definitely one of favourite suites, much to my surprise.  Often I struggle with autumn products, but this suite is one of those where every card I make, I absolutely love!  

Check out this pretty card I created in Moody Mauve and Copper Clay.  Such a pretty colour combination, don't you think!  Anyone who places an order with me this month will get one of these beauties in the mail!


  1. Cut Moody Mauve cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Moody Mauve cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  3. Emboss using the Distressed Tile Embossing Folder
  4. Use Blending Brush to add some Moody Mauve ink over embossing to make the pattern pop.
  5. Cut Designer Series Paper 2" x 5"
  6. Adhere to left side of embossed cardstock
  7. Adhere to card base
  8. Cut out 2 maple leaves - one in Moody Mauve and one in Copper Clay using Die
  9. Cut out 2 oak leaves - one in Moody Mauve and one in Copper Clay using Die
  10.  Stamp sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock using Moody Mauve ink
  11. Cut out using die
  12. Wrap Linen Thread around hand 2-3 times.  Pinch off and adhere to the back of the sentiment label.
  13. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  14. Adhere leaves tucked under sentiment using Glue Dots
  15. Adhere Copper Clay Speckled Dots
  16. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  17. Stamp leaf in bottom right corner using Moody Mauve ink stamped off
  18. Adhere to the inside of the card base.

You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.
