Fall is one of my favorites times of the year because of the shades and tones we see in leaves as they change color in preparation for the oncoming cold weather.  Back in my days as a florist, I was in my glory working with flowers in shades of gold, bronze, rust, orange and dried grasses in tans and browns.  The cards Debbie and I are preparing for our October Fall Fantasy Stamp Camp remind me of those fall days of the past and the upcoming chilly days that are right around the corner. 

Fall paper 1

This is the beautiful Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper shown in the Holiday Mini Catalog on page 13 ($11.95).  This is the heaviest designer paper I have ever worked with and is lovely to work with.  We will be using this paper on several of our cards at the Fall Frenzy Stamp Camp.


Give thanks best

I love the French Foliage stamp set on page 14 ($14.95) of the Holiday Mini Catalog.  The More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Early Espresso go together perfectly on Very Vanilla to give this card a beautiful fall touch.  The “Give Thanks” message adds the Thanksgiving message for friends and family.

Fall envelope 1

Those who have stamped with me know how I stress the importance of stamping the envelope to coordinate with the card.  I love how this envelope, stamped with the French Foliage stamp set, harmonizes with the card above.


PumpkinsThis lovely fall scene is created by Debbie using Harvest Home (23.95) found on page 29 of the 2010 Idea Book & Catalog.  Deb used Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Crumb Cake and Old Olive inks and a blender pen to bring out the rich colors on her card.  This farm scene is perfect for any fall occasion from birthdays to Thanksgiving.  I love how she used the eyelet border punch allowing the chocolate chip designer paper to peek through.

Hope you can join Rosemary’s Stampers on Friday October 1st from 4 – 9 PM or Saturday October 2nd from 9 am – 4 PM.  The cost for the 5 projects we will be making is $10 – what a bargain!  We will be creating the 2 cards above, an additional fall card, a Christmas card  with Cherry Cobbler poinsettias, and a cute treat box made from the Bigz Candy Wrapper die.   You will have YOUR choice of card stock color and YOUR choice of embellishments (bats, ghosts, leaves, flowers, owls, designer paper!),  Give me a call at 630-759-3089 or E-mail me at www.paperrose01@aol.com if  you have any questions!

Also mark November 5th and 6th on your calendar for our HOLIDAY FRENZY Stamp Camp – your choice of making 6, 12, or 18 cards!
