Hello stampers and happy Friday to you! Today I am sharing a fun card with you: Gilded Autumn Wish For Everything. Why the long name? Well, the paper is called Gilded Autumn and the stamp set is A Wish for Everything. This card is a result of a card sketch challenge which I will share the sketch so you can play along too if you want!
Gilded Autumn is the name of the beautiful paper in the suite with the same name. This paper is so, so beautiful with its earth tones and a pop of gold and copper foil on some of the paper.
Here you can see this pretty paper used on some great projects in the Holiday Catalog.
A Wish For Everything Thanksgiving Card
A Wish For Everything is a huge stamp set that covers almost every occasion. It comes with coordinating dies as well and it a very popular choice to put in your starter kit. Did you know that you pay no shipping or tax when you get the starter kit? The dies are called Word Wishes and are found on page 183 of the annual catalog. Here is my card.
Not only is the paper in this suite gorgeous, so are the accessories! In this next picture you will get a good look at the pretty acorn trinkets. You can also see that I layered the Thanksgiving die cut with pool party and early espresso to create a shadow effect. I also wanted it to show up in contrast to the patterned paper. The other neat detail to take note of is the ribbon. Yes, it curls!!! Not crazy curls like wrapping paper ribbon, but classy curves to keep people guessing how you did that!
COVID19 continues to wreak havoc with our lives preventing us from crafting together and seeing our friends. If you are looking to connect with other people or you need consistent training as a demo at an affordable price I have the solution for you! Here are the options:
- Prime Time With The Pampered Stamper. This private group is for those looking to stamp together, to get creative inspiration, to win prizes and to have a safe place to interact with like-minded individuals. Cost: $10 a month.
- Pampered Stamper Training Group. This group is particularly for Stampin’Up! demonstrators but anyone is welcome to join. I do a weekly live video on different aspects of running a successful SU business. Cost is only $5 a month (I know, I’m crazy, but I really believe in accessibility for everyone and when you first start out as a demo you are not making a lot of money)

I hope that you get over the fear of “signing up” and not worry about being or becoming anything you don’t want to be or become.

Sometimes COVID19 can affect us by crippling our creativity. If you are in that state, you might want to consider my tutorials. If you purchase one of my tutorials by the end of September, I will send you a bonus tutorial on October 1!! You can browse my tutorials here.
Thanks for joining me today. Here is the card sketch (I almost forgot!!) I would love it so much if you would leave a comment.
