Last Day of Christmas in July

Hi stampers!  How can it be the last day of July already?  I'll be ordering my holiday catalogs today to send to you!  I got a peek at it yesterday and it's AH-MAZING of course!  For now, here's a card using stuff from the annual catalog!

I used this greeting from Another Wonderful Year (which is my favorite in the set) and a bunch of framelits to make a pretty cute Christmas card!  I combined the pine sprigs and other little sprigs from Pretty Pines with the Foliage Frames Dies and then added my bow from the Stitched Seasons Dies which are available TOMORROW!  I love our dies because you can combine them with almost anything to create amazing cards and projects!  Don't forget that you don't have to use the dies with the coordinating sets at all or even OWN those sets!

The Foliage Frames Dies are amazing because you can use our new Embossing Mats to add some texture as well.  After I cut out my frame, I left it in the die and use the mats to emboss it.  I'll try to video that soon!

A few gold accents and the new Tufted Embossing Folder round it out!

Happy stamping!

Still Christmas in July

Hi stampers!  Merry Christmas in July once again!  Seriously, this bundle is so great!  Don't forget that you can get your hands on this bundle and the coordinating watercolor pencils on August 1st.  Which let's not talk about how quickly that is approaching!  Where did July go???  Also, I've totally been calling it by the wrong name, LOL!  It's Blended Seasons and not whatever else I was saying.  DUH!

Anyway, I was inspired by a fellow demo, Sue Vine, for this card.  I've mentioned before, I just love this classic sentiment!

I think that I really stamped the holly upside down of how it should be but I made it work.  And that bell was easy to cut out thanks to the framelits!  And how cute is that little stitching accent I used from the new stitched set of dies???  Don't forget about those little accents!

Speaking of Christmas once again, I'll get to see the Holiday Catalog this afternoon!  You know I've cleared my calendar :-)  Let me know if you want one and I'll get it sent!  Tomorrow is the last day for me to do that for you!

Happy stamping!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Tropical Vibes

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for another Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  We are a group of current and past Artisan Design Team members who come together once a month to inspire you with our fancy creations!  Make sure you click around to see each and every one!
 This month we are taking you to the tropics!  Our theme this month is a project with a tropical vibe.

For my card, I used the Tropical Chic Bundle.  It's really fun and looks fantastic with bright colors!  Of course I used some of my MOST favorites for this, including Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana.  I also added in some Pool Party, Call Me Clover, Lovely Lipstick, and Flirty Flamingo!  Think that's enough? :-)

For my background, I used my Silicone Craft Mat to do a watercolor wash with Lemon Lime and Pool Party.  When it was slightly dry, I added some drops with Coastal Cabana so they would spread and blend but only a little.

For my flowers, I inked them in Flamingo and then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Lipstick around the edges making them two toned.  The card needed one more little pop of color, so I stamped the fat palm leaf with Call Me Clover.  My label is from the Foliage Frames Framelits which I MAY have ordered 90% for that one shape :-)

Some Linen Thread and a few Glitter Enamel Dots were the finishing touches

We aren't really taking a summer vacation this year so this card will just have to be my tropical escape :-)  Now it's time to head off and see what Dani has created for you and you're going to love it!

Happy stamping!
