Team Stamp It Blog Hop

Hello, my stamping friend and thank you for stopping by.
Even so it is hard to think about fall here in Florida right now (still super hot), I am always excited to make fall themed projects. When Holiday catalog comes -I go right back to the end to check new fall items. So today I will be featuring brand new items from upcoming Holiday catalog. It goes live September 4th.
I was a little surprised with the color combo for this year fall projects. It was all coming from the colors of the DSP and they are not very traditional. I just picked the sheet of DSP I really liked and designed around it:

The box is made from full sheet of card stock. Few scores, DSP in from and back, some decorations and all done.
It is actually descent size and fits a lot of goodies (6 x 3 1/4 x 2 ) :
The card is using same dsp and same colors a box. It is easy and great for mass production.
I finally had an opportunity  to play with new in-color.
Then I found some wood tags I had since last Christmas and decided to make tags. This tag looks perfect on a wine bottle (this one is half-bottle).
Leaves were added with tombow glue and pumpkin with dimensionals.

New 'Gather Together' bundle is so much fun. I especially love leaves with detailed embossing.
Let me know what you think. Leave a comment to be entered in prize drawing.
For more great ideas - continue your blog hop:

Happy Stamping!
