Time for a little Birthday Wit!

Posted on

This week’s stamp set I’m playing with would have to be, hand’s down, my FAVORITE from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. It’s the Birthday Wit Stamp Set on page 9. Seriously how fun are these?

All my fingers and toes are crossed that this set carries over into this year’s Annual Catalog.🤞🏼 This is the set of seven stamps which fabulously includes two for a little pattern building.

Don’t forget, there’s less then two weeks left on this year’s Sale-a-Bration. If there were any sets from this catalog on your wish list, NOW is the time to place your order!

Is it really time to “Deck the Halls”? (MFT #352)

Posted on

After being so focused on scrapbooking for the last four weeks, I’m really having trouble now starting anything else. Thank goodness for the card challenges. Here’s my take on the challenge from My Favorite Things #352.

With the Deck the Halls Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! having been sitting on my workbench for a couple of weeks it was a given to use it. With wood grain papers a current favourite of mine, this was the next obvious choice. Here’s the sketch from My Favorite Things.

Here’s hoping that with next week being a new month my mojo finally kicks in, giving me a jump-start on a project or two. Fingers-crossed!

Letterpress Lanterns

Posted on

For something a little different at a workshop last month, as the hostess had requested something for Christmas but didn’t actually specified a CARD, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do!

The Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies (135853 – $40.50) cut out in White Vellum Cardstock; then heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder; then finished off with Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Gold 1/8″ Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim. All this was then completed with a battery operated tea-light candle placed inside!

The lantern on the right I didn’t turn on, wanting to highlight how fabulous it looks if you wanted to use this Curvy Keepsake Box for something other than a lantern!

Ornamental Pine Classic

Posted on

The Ornamental Pine Stamp Set (135104 – $22.95) on page 27 of the Holiday Catalog is one of the most elegant stamp sets I’ve seen in the longest while and judging by sales, there are few of you who agree with me. 🙂

There’s no denying I’ve become a bit stuck on Always Artichoke Classic Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock whenever I use this stamp set, as you can see from my card below, lol!

JIF - Ornamental Pines - Cheerful Christmas

Combined with the ornaments from the Cheerful Christmas Stamp Set (135146 – $21.95) on page 15 on the Holiday Catalog makes for such a simple yet elegant card, or at least it my opinion that is!
