Wondrous Wreath

Hello!  Today I want to share a card made with what is probably my favorite new product from the Holiday Catalog – the Wondrous Wreath bundle.  I LOVE this set!  The thing that makes me love it most is the awesome coordinating framelits for cutting it out AND the ingenious way it was designed to make it super easy to match up when stamping the different parts of the wreath and cutting it out.

Wondrous Wreath JoyThe stamps are designed with a tab at one end so that you know which direction to stamp each layering piece to easily match it up.  And, the framelits also have the tab to know which direction to place the framelit to match it up with the stamped image. INGENIOUS!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

White Christmas

Hello!  Here’s a cute Christmas card using a new set from the Holiday Catalog called White Christmas.  This is a super fun stamp set to play with and the best part about it?  It’s photopolymer, which means it is extremely easy to line everything up.  I have to admit that the photopolymer stamp sets are now my favorite!

White Christmas bannerI stamped this in black and then colored in with my Stampin’ Write Markers.  I love the one little pop of red on the robin.  The blue designer paper in the background is from the All is Calm dsp and the green trees are a strip of washi tape from the All is Calm washi tape set.

Seasonally Scattered Samples

Happy Friday!  I hope your week has been good and you’ve got a great weekend planned.  I’m hoping to do a bunch of nothing.  I feel like I’ve been going and going and I’d like a few days to rest.  I’d love to take in a couple of movies, like Gone Girl and The Judge.  Both are on my list to see.  I read the book of Gone Girl and always love to see how a story plays out in a movie and The Judge just looks good, and I must admit, I’ve always had a bit of crush on Robert Downy Jr. and love seeing his movies.  Anyway… what was I supposed to be talking about?  Oh yeah…. stamping!!

Here’s a couple of cute examples using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  You can make some quick and simple cards with this set and the stamps do all the work for you as a wow focal image.
