Last day to order from the Christmas Catalogue!

Happy New year to all!  The Christmas catalogue 2017 is retiring and today is the last day to order from it. Only a few items will be kept, but most of them are being discontinued!

To place an order before it’s too late, order online here! Don’t miss the Year end sale on many Christmas items!

I’m really sad to see the Christmas Quilt stamp set and Framelits go… I thought it was a keeper for sure! (But it’s retiring, so last chance to get it!!!)

Here’s two more cards with this gorgeous stamp set! I also used the Quilted Christmas Designer Series paper and Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing folder.Christmas cards 2017-006

In this card, I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to complement the card!Christmas cards 2017-005

Christmas Quilt Stamp set

My new favorite Christmas stamp set is definitely the Christmas Quilt and Quilt Builder Framelits Dies! (You can get it as a bundle and save 10%) This stamp set and Framelits work perfectly with the Quilted Christmas Designer Series paper and the Quilt Top Textures Impression Embossing folder!

Simply cut a few of the quilt squares in different designer papers with the Framelits and mix and match to create many cards! It’s like creating a quilt, but way faster!!!

Here’s a few cards I made with this set!

One of the item that I’m so sad to see going is the Owl punch! That’s the first punch I ever bought! I used it so much over the years! This owl is so cute! But what I like the most about this punch is the multiple uses that you can do with it! For example, making a tulip with the Owl punch is so easy! To see how to make this tulip, visit an older post : https://madewithpaper.wordpress.com/2011/09/13/owl-punch-week-make-a-tulip/

See all the cards made with the Owl punch here: https://madewithpaper.wordpress.com/category/card-samples/owl-punch-examples/

I’ve copied myself to make this card!!! Another set that have been around for a long time that is also retiring is the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and matching punch (Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly). I’ve also used it on this card (and so many others! You can see them here).

Special Reason-007

Stamp set: Papillon Potpourri (retiring), Four You (retired)
Paper and CS: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Garden Green
Ink: Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral
Tools: Owl punch (retiring), Big Shot, Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits (retiring), Bitty Butterfly punch (retiring), Elegant Dots embossing folder (retiring), Sponge daubers, scissors, Dimensionals.

**Tips and Tricks:**

* To make the tulip, use the Owl punch. See instructions here.
* Use the sponge dauber to add ink to the tulip to add a dept effect. I used Cherry Cobbler over Calypso Coral card stock.
* Use the Bitty Butterfly punch to cut perfectly the little butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.
* I used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits to cut the greeting “banner”. I also used the Calypso Coral ink over the edges to add more definition.

Foxy Friends Christmas card

I told you I really fell in love with the Fox Builder punch and Foxy Friends stamp set. Here’s one other card that I did with this amazing bundle! I think this little racoon is so cute!!! What I like about this stamp set is that it includes so many elements: the trees, the tree stump, all the different faces for the animals, and even cute mushrooms!!! I used the dazzling diamonds to add some sparkling touches on the trees and on the snow. (I know it’s not so obvious on the picture.)

Foxy Friends Baby Card

I’ve fallen in love with the new Fox Builder punch and Foxy Friends stamp set! The possibilities with this stamp set and punch are infinite!!! Today’s card is a cute baby card. I used the Fox Builder punch to do the bear; simply rounding up the ears to make it look like a bear.

I also used the banner and confetti stamps from “Celebrate Today” stamp set and the little bow that coordinates with it, Balloon Framelits. The greeting is from Better Together stamp set.
