Hi Stamping Friends.  I know it's a little early for Christmas, but I do have the non-procrastinators that like to get a good start on making their cards.  These are the first set of cards we made in our Christmas card-making class.  The top two are CASED, the other two are not. If you would be interested in joining us for the next Christmas Card-making classes, they are being held the third Wednesday and Saturday of the next months through November.  Attend all of them or just one!  If you are interested in being a part of virtual club, click here and I'll send more details.

Hi Stamping Friends.  Sorry for the lapse in posts ... life likes to interfere!  But I have been "playing" with my new toys.   I'm lovin' the new thinlets .  This card features the label thinlet.  Plus, the label framelits nest nicely in them as well.  The colors are pistachio pudding, island indigo, very vanilla, and Venetian Romance designer paper.  The flowers are stamped with the Flower Shop stamp and punch with the pansy punch.  The lace border is made using the Finishing Touches Edgelits™.  The stamp set for the "For You" is from the Apothecary set.

Calm Christmas

Hi Stamping friends.  It's not too early for Christmas, is it?  I typically wait until the last minute, but I know there are many people that get right on it ... so here is my first Christmas card that we will be making in an upcoming class, using new products from the Holiday Catalog. The colors are pool party, whisper white, and silver.  The patterned paper is from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack (132183).  The "Merry" is just set on top of there for now, which was made using the new Expressions Thinlits Dies (132171)  These dies are really easy to use (I had my doubts if they would be difficult to remove from the die or not)....but I had no problems.  The dove is from Calm Christmas (Wood 132736, Clear 132739) and is embossed with silver embossing powder.  The Silver 1/8" Ribbon (132137) is a breeze to tie.  No wires and it's not stiff.  The circles are cut with the Circles Collection (130911) framelits. If you are interested in any of my u

New Thinlits Card Dies

Image
Hi Stamping Friends.  Here is a new product that is so cool! They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more-but they have always been a bit tricky to create. Not anymore! Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a card that flips in just one step. There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them!  These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.) With the number of dies you're getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card! Promote mass production of these impressive "flip" cards. They would make great announcements, invitations, or Christmas cards. You can
