Are you ready to craft for fall, Halloween, winter, Christmas, and more? You’re in luck! Stampin’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog is now live! It’s filled with an array of brand-new stamp sets, dies, embossing folders, punches, Designer Series Paper and much more.
Today, I’m using some of these products for my fun bendy fold card. I use the Pick of the Patch Bundle which includes the Pick of the Patch Stamp Set and the coordinating Pick of the Patch Builder Punch. Find them on page 51 of this brand-new catalog. Purchase them as a bundle and save 10 percent. (If you love this, be sure to order sooner rather than later. In recent releases, our punches have sold quickly.) I also use the Them Bones 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper.

Below, I share some cutting dimensions for this card. Be sure to watch the video to see step-by-instructions for putting this card together.

Stamp and punch five pumpkins with Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive ink
Of course, this fun bendy design lends itself to any number of stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, and themes.

When we think about creating fall-themed cards, it’s a good time to pull out the baby wipe technique. Although it can be used for other themes, this technique lends itself really well for fall.
What is the baby wipe technique? (Be sure to watch the video below to see step-by-step visual instructions for making this technique come to life.) But here’s the crux of it:
Layer a couple of baby wipes on a Silicone Craft Sheet
Drip a few drops of reinker of desired colors on the baby wipe. For this card, I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler. Make sure to cover the area the size of the stamp.
Use the baby wipe as your ink pad. Press the stamp onto the wipe and then stamp on your card stock.
Gorgeously Made Baby Wipe Technique
For today’s card, I used the large leaf stamp from Stampin’ Up!’s Gorgeously Made stamp set. Here are some other details that may help you create this card at home:
Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock Base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Very Vanilla Card Stock layer die cut with Deckled Rectangle Dies and run through the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder (an Online Exclusive)
Cherry Cobbler Card Stock layer cut with Deckled Rectangle Dies
Very Vanilla Card Stock layer stamped used the baby wipe technique and die cut with Deckled Rectangle

Are you ready for fall? The really hot summer has me dreaming about the cooler temps fall brings. I’m channeling that with my card making in my Mesa, Arizona, craft room. (It didn’t help bring on winter with Christmas in July, so I’m not sure this will actually work!)
But I am excited to work with the fall color palette. I tap into these fall offerings using Stampin’ Up!’s Gorgeously Made Bundle.
See this post for another card created recently with this bundle. The stamp set and dies were still out on my craft room table, and that inspired me to try the big leaf image for an autumn card.
Gorgeously Made Fall Leaves
Here are a few details about this card:

Ink colors: Cherry Cobber, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Crumb Cake
Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder
Simply Elegant Trim
I feel these cards are great to have on hand during September, October, and November. You can add any sentiment for the occasions you need.
Be sure to watch the video to see step-by-step instructions for creating this card. You’ll learn about the “stamping off” or second-generation stamping technique as well as how to add a little sponging with the Small Blending Brushes.

Inked Botanicals for Fall
For today’s card, I used a handful of different Stampin’ Up! products. Here’s a list to help you get started.
Calypso Coral base measuring 8 1/2 x 4 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Leaves from Season of Chic stamp set (Annual Catalog) stamped in the coordinating colors of Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, and Lost Lagoon and die cut with Chic Dies.
Sentiment stamped from Pick of the Patch Bundle (available beginning September 6, 2023, from Stampini’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog) stamped in Lost Lagoon on Very Vanilla card stock.
Calypso Coral 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (available beginning September 6, 2023, from Stampini’ Up!’s September-December 2023 Mini Catalog) .
Lost Lagoon Gems from Tinsel Gems Three-Pack (Annual Catalog).
I love all of the designs in the Inked Botanicals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. But I saved this design to use specifically on fall-themed cards. The leaves and colors lend themselves well for this. I hope you agree!
