Mixing the Old and the New for The Paper Players.....

Hello Everyone: This week over at The Paper Players    Laurie Schmidt has a fabulous CAS challenge for us this week to play with.  The theme is to create a Fall Scene.....Love It!!! Autumn is my favorite season of the year so I was more than happy to create and share this card with you today.
I'm mixing the brand new and gorgeous Stampin Up! Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  with a very old, 2009 Stampin Up! stamp set called "Scene in a Garden", I used each of the 7 images from this set to create this little Fall Scene, I'm sure you'll agree that they are simply beautiful. Back in 2009, all the sets were mounted in wood so I used my Stamp-a-majig to position each image just right.
Here is a close up of the beautiful birch trees embossed in the background and of the cute boots, terracotta pots and everything else on this card, the bird is perched on the stem of this pumpkin, thank goodness for my stamp positioner.
I sponged a little bit of Hello Honey ink on the trees, the images are stamped on Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with my SU markers and the aqua painter. I used Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Garden Green, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, and a little bit of my silver gel pen for the gardening tool.
I tore the paper diagonally to get this pretty edge, I sponged a bit of Tangelo Twist on it to give it some dimension and separate this panel from the embossed panel in the back.
Here is the image that inspired this card.I hope you like this card, please leave me your comments, if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer them.
Thank you so much for stopping by, till next time, enjoy the glorious color of Autumn and happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  2. I really like the torn edge separating the two scenes . I think I have a card in my Maria box of cards that has this scene ?? It is so cute ! The clever part is adding the new Birch tree folder ! Great card !!

    1. Hey my friend, you are right, I do remember sending you a card with this set some time ago, I decided to CASE my own card but I just added that gorgeous embossing birch tree panel.
      Thank you for remembering.
