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

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.
