Bottles & Bubbles Framelit
Found on page 216 of the Annual Catalog or Online.

The 2018-2019 Annual catalog has this really cute and refreshing sample.

Onto the part I know you are always eager to see.......

My Samples! 

Don't you just love the versatility of the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper? The bottle caps and tops are cut with the framelits in Silver Foil Paper

I had fun stamping these bubbles in a rainbow of colors! The celebrate was cut using the Celebrate You Thinlits. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in Black Stampin' Emboss Powder.
This is a really clean and simple card! 

The Designer Series Paper here is retired (sorry!). Let me tell you about all the elements behind the bottle! First the tranquil tide swirls were cut with the top of the flower from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits! then I added some Metallic Thread and some Black Mini Sequin Trim

Little Elephant Bundle

I have the cutest Elephant Stamp Set and Builder Punch for you! 
There are times when you need a cute little elephant. 
And balloons. 
And Tulips. 
And a bird!

You can find this cute bundle on page 91 of the Annual Catalog or Online.

The cute Punch Builder allows you to punch out each elephant, their eye and ears for added dimension. 

The 2018-2019 Annual Catalog
has these very sweet samples.

Since my Hubby and I have lots of travel coming up in September, I will need lots of Thank You cards. So please forgive me! 

My Fun Samples:

I know! ANOTHER shaker card.  I can't help myself. Is this paper from Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper not the cutest?  I thought it went well with the little birdie! As an added element I put the smallest pearl from Pearl Basic Jewels on his/her eye.

For the bottom layer I took Shimmery White Cardstock and embossed it with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The ribbon is Bermuda Bay 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon. Under the main circle is a scalloped circle of vellum. His/Her eye on this one is the smallest Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

I went for a slightly masculine monochromatic theme here. Using 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and Grosgrain Ribbon. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock that was punched with the punch from the Darling Label Punch Box.
And a cute little pearl for the eye.

Timeless Textures Designer Series Paper added just the right touch to this simple card, along with some Copper Metallic Thread

to you for stopping by.

Pick A Pennant

I have a super fun bundle for you toady that has LOTS of possibilities.

Pick A Pennant
Found on page 173 of the Annual Catalog or Online.

The catalog samples show you how you can make a single layer into a fluttering pennant! How cool is that?

This one was created by using a window sheet!

I had a lot of fun using this set.
I needed to stock up on some Anniversary and Birthday cards.
So I made some duplicates, one of each for one design.
The Pineapple Punch layer was embossed with the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impression Folder, and the bows were done with Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon.

To perfectly line up my stamps for these layers I used my STAMPARATUS! The circle was cut with Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies.

Again, I used the Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon, and also Faceted Dots and Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The cute double bows here are made with Linen Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Big Thank You

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! 
You can never say that enough to the people you love, or to everyone in general. I have to say Thank You cards are the second runner up in my card supply after Birthdays. One of my Grandmothers always had us write Thank You Notes, and to this day I really make a huge effort to send them.  

So today I have a Thank You set!

A Big Thank You Bundle.

Found on page 122 of the Annual Catalog or Online.

As Always the catalog has great samples!

Here is the part I know you all Love!
My Samples!
The Die cut is really pretty, wait til you see what I did with it a little lower!

Here I added Swirly Frames Stamp Set to make the outline of a

Simple, Sweet, Clean! The sentiment and the heart are embossed with Stampin' Emboss Powder.

Told you I did something cool with that die cut! Cut it twice in different colors, makes it pop a little. 
for Thursday! 
Thanks for stopping by, why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Dandelion Wishes

Make A WISH!


Dandelion Wishes

Available on page 118 of the Annual Catalog or Online.

Send someone a wish with a dandelion swish!

The Catalog has some really great samples as well as a Scrapbook page idea!
Did you forget we have scrapbook stuff??
Make sure to check out our Memories & More Products.

I Really Really love this set.  Even before I saw it I had plans of a tattoo with just this type of idea!  It is still in the planning stages, but I will let you know when I go for it!  
In the meantime here are my samples for you to enjoy.....

This one is just simply stamped, you could make it a little glitzy by using Shimmery White Cardstock. I used Texture Weave Ribbon in Gray Granite tied off with some white bakers twine. I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The Smile sentiment is a reallllly old SU one! 

There are quite a lot of elements to this one. I will start from the back and move forward. The Coastal Cabana layer was dry embossed with the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Followed by a square layer of Silver Foil Sheets. I stamped the dandelions with Versamark and embossed with Pewter Stampin Emboss Powder, which is retired but we have lots of other colors! I added some Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon. For my finishing touch I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

This gorgeous yellow is Pineapple Punch. Behind the stamp I used Brusho. Then stamped and embossed the dandelion in Silver Stampin Emboss Powder.
 If you have not used Brusho or even heard of it.
Check out this video:

This one was also embossed! In white this time. I told you we have a ton of Stampin Emboss Powder colors.  I used the  Stitched Shaped Framelit Dies and Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon in Whisper White

I will be back on Tuesday. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
