Tags 4 You - Christmas

I know that it's a little early for Christmas, but when I received my Tags 4 You bundle and the new Christmas washi tape from the Holiday catalog, I couldn't resist making this simple Christmas card!  Ladies, are you not in love with washi tape?!  I think this is just the ticket for mass producing an adorable Christmas card in a hurry!!

August Paper Pumpkin

I received my paper pumpkin for August last week and these were the cards I made with this month's kit.  All of them are different than the sample and instructions included.  I just loved that little bicycle stamp in this months kit, I couldn't resist playing with that and the banners!  Also this month's kit was perfect timing as the sentiment was 'thank you' and my daughter had to write some thank you cards for grad gifts and gifts toward university, so she used my paper pumpkin cards to help her finish these off:))

Butterfly Special - August 29th to September 30th!

Starting today!  If you look through a sampling of my recent projects, you'll notice that I'm crazy about butterflies these days!  If you haven't gotten your bitty butterfly punch or the larger more elegant one, here's an opportunity to get one and save!  From now until September 30th, you can choose to get either of these punches together with the Papillon Potpouri stamp set for 15% off!!  I love how SU let you choose either punch too!

World Map Meets Postage Collection

I was playing with an inking technique on this card using some pool party, costal caban and midnight muse inks, then stamping the *new* World Map background stamp in black over it.  I *love* that World Map's definitely one of my new are the Pretty Print embossing folder (used on the black background matt) and the Postage Collection *new* nostess stamp set.

Oh and one more thing I'm loving working with is that black & white chevron ribbon.  I used it yesterday too and forgot to is so easy to tie knots and bows with!:)

Congratulations Card - Postage Collection

I made this card this week for a former colleague of mine who received a promotion.  Unfortunately when I went to the celebration for her yesterday, no one was there.  I guess the time was changed.  I would have used less heavy/bulky embellishments if I had known this might have to go in the mail;)

I used a few of my new favourite things here:
-Postage Collection **hostess** stamp set
-Modern Medley designer series paper
-and from the *new* Holiday catalog, Pretty Print texture impressions embossing folder!

I also used some Victoria lace, antique brads, a library clip, some linen threat, marina mist card stock and ink, very vinalla cardstock, black ink, the postage stamp punch & the apothecary accents framelits.

Holiday Stamp Sets Carried Over

With the recent release of the Holiday Catalog, I thought I'd remind you also today which Holiday stamp sets have carried over from the prior catalog.
Also the coordinating Christmas punch pack has carried forward, and, of course, the framelits that go with the ornament stamps above.
