All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET on August 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.
Just like Betsy's previous Color Pop kits, Color Pop: Autumn includes stamps, dies, stencils, and a paper assortment that includes both stencil-ready patterns and die-cut ready designs. My card focuses on the pre-printed die-cut shapes and the patterned paper.
As you can see, I opted to leave the background paper as-is and not color it in with the stencils. I love how that subtle print allows the bold die-cut shapes to really stand out.
I also brought in some metallic gold, both with the sentiment, which I die-cut from a Luxe Gold Adhesive sheet and the chevron gold foil paper, which is from the Gold Luxe Foil Patterned Paper collection.
I usually prefer my fall creations to be more on the natural, rustic side, but I've gotta say, I'm really loving the elegance and sophistication of these colors, especially with the gold!

Next is a look at Paper Clippings: Thankful For You, Paper Clippings: Thankful For You Details, and Inspired: Blessed.
I've stamped and die-cut the detail images, and arranged them onto a napkin ring for a pretty, easy, and inexpensive way to dress up your Thanksgiving table.

Last is a simpler, sweeter, more country card project using the sweet Autumn Pumpkins stamps and dies. The pumpkins are stamped, die-cut, and watercolored, then layered over a wreath that I stamped using the previously released Twig Wreath. The leaves and branches are from Autumn Pumpkins, with the exception of one floral image from Twig Wreath.
I kept this super simple and just rounded the bottom corners and added a touch of Aqua Mist gingham patterned paper to the top.
