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!

Colorful season wedding card

Today’s card is a beautiful wedding card I made for my cousin’s wedding. I used the new framelits Seasonal layers (matching the Colorful Season stamp set) to cut the flowers and branch. To add a little bit of pink to my flowers, I added a touch of pink with the watercolor pencils and used the blender pen to soften it. The birds were cut with the Bird builder punch (now retired). For the background, I used the Hardwood background stamp, with White craft ink on Crumb cake card stock.

Finally the greeting is from Essence de Rose stamp set and I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the stitched oval.

Lift me up… to retirement!

The Lift me up beautiful stamp set and matching Thinlits is the perfect set for masculine cards but also for anybody going on a trip, new adventures or retirement! I made this card for a co-worker who just retired. My favorite part in this set is certainly this beautiful hot air balloon! I used Night of Navy card stock for the outer, with Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight in the background. I used the sponge dauber to add some Night of Navy ink on the outside to add more depth to my hot air balloon. This bundle also has beautiful clouds framelits! I also sponged the clouds’ borders with Pool Party ink and used dimensionals to raise a few up, to add dimension to the card.

The background is made with a designer series paper from the last Occasion catalogue called Cupcake and Carousel.

Greetings is from the stamp set called “Fleurs de l’âge”. (Wild about flowers)

Colorful Seasons: Life is beautiful!

One new stamp set and matching Thinlits that immediately caught my eyes in the new catalogue is called “Colorful Seasons“. It’s such as beautiful set and it’s perfect for all year long! There’s everything you need for every season, from beautiful snowflakes to a nice Adirondack chair!

I’ve made this card thinking of a beautiful and relaxing day on the beach! Don’t you wish you were there?

Colorful seasons-006

To do the sky, I used the Color Theory Designer Series paper stack. I like how the blue has a nice color gradient to it! I used the darker side of the paper to do the water. A tear is perfect for this, leaving a nice white line perfect for the waves! For the chair, I used the Wood Textures Designer Series paper stack. The sun is made with the Swirly Bird stamp set.

Here’s the stamp set and thinlits:
