Beautiful You!

The Beautiful You stamp set in the Occasions catalog caught my eye right away. The images and sentiments are so fun! On this card I colored the hat and dress using an Aqua Painter with Watermelon Wonder ink on Watercolor Paper.

Thanks to Pinterest, I discovered how easy it is to stamp this image on Designer Series Paper and quickly cut out the dress and hat to place on the image stamped on the Whisper White oval. The stamp image is like a sketch, with several lines so it is very forgiving when you cut it out. I tried to stay on the inside of the inside line but it didn't really matter. Love it!

Last Chance Shopping & More Birthday Blast!

Happy New Year's Eve!

I knew when I first saw the Birthday Blast stamp set in the upcoming Occasions catalog that it would become a favorite to use. When my pre-order arrived I started by copying the sample on page 11.

Can you tell that there are coordinating Star Blast Edgelits Dies? You can see better in the photo below how the layers POP!

This Star Blast is going to be seen adorning many cards and gift bags & boxes in the months to come!

The Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration begin on January 4th!

That means we are down to the last few days of the Holiday Catalog - it ends January 3rd.  Click here to see the list of retiring products and be sure to get your favorites. Be sure to visit my online store to check out the Year-End Blowout Sale too!

Presents & Pinecones Festive Tree and 2 SALES!

I have had this 18" paper mache tree form for almost a year now and when I saw the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper I finally decided what I wanted to do with it. See below to get a special deal on this paper!
I started by cutting six 1"x12" strips of each of the paper patterns I wanted to use. I then cut those into 1"x3" pieces which punched one end of with the Banner Triple Punch. Next, I used my bone folder to curl the paper "branch". Beginning at the bottom of the tree form I used Tombow Multi-purpose glue to attach the pieces, working my way up to the top.

The 6-sided star was created using the Star of Light Stamp Set and the Starlight Thinlits Dies. I stamped the star onto Whisper White cardstock using VersaMark ink and heat embossed Gold powder. Gold Baker's Twine is layered between the embossed & designer series paper stars. The star is glued to a short skewer which extends into the tree form.

Of course, there is a coordinating card! I love the heat embossed gold swoosh.

Today is World Card Making Day and we are celebrating with a SALE!

Items on sale five days only! October 1 - 5, 2016.
