Love Is Kindness

My favorite flowers are tulips, so when I saw this stamp set in the Occasions Catalog, it quickly went onto my wish list.  If you look on page 32 of the Occasion Catalog, I got the idea of wrapping the tulips in newspaper.  Genius, wouldn’t you say?

Here is the close up of the newspaper wrapped tulips!  I love this small effect, don’t you?

Big Day Easel Card

Last year I saw a very cool tutorial on Becky Roberts’ blog for these freakin’ adorable easel cards.  Here is a link to her tutorial (click here). I knew as soon as I saw the new Chalkboard paper in the Occasions Catalog that I would making one!  This card was a lot of fun to make and took no extra time either.  I simply LOVE the ColorBox Chalk Ink Pads too!  This card uses several products that you can get for FREE.  It’s simple – one free product for every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping).

Here is a side view.

Here is the inside of the card.

UDI Color Challenge #201

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #201

As soon as I saw this stamp set and coordinating thinlits dies I fell in love.  Take a look on page 30 of the Occasions Catalog and you will see a striking resemblance to a card on that page and my card below. Here is a quick tip when using these thinlits; place a piece of wax paper between the thinlit and cardstock and it will be a lot easier to remove the saying (card stock) once you run it through the Big Shot.

Best Year Ever Calendar

At the beginning of each year, I make these cute desk calendars.  I think that the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper is very fitting, don’t you think?  This project uses two items that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order of $50.00.  For step by step instructions, click here.  Who wouldn’t want to have this pretty little thing on their desk?

I used calendar pads that I used measure 3″ x 2-1/4″.  I have been purchasing them from a company called Vippies for many years.  Have fun making your own!

Letterpress Winter Thank You

I needed some thank you cards for the gifts that I received from family and friends and whipped these up very quickly.  Time is running out to place your order from the Holiday Catalog.  If you have been on the fence about ordering anything, get it now before it is gone forever. Tomorrow is the last day to order from the Holiday Catalog or the Holiday Supplement too!

I used the All Is Calm Designer Washi Tape to decorate the front of the envelope.

001

I also used the Envelope Liners Framelits Die to line the inside of the envelope.  It is a nice way to use up all of my scraps of odd sized DSP.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wow, can you believe how quickly the year has flown by?  I know this is a busy time of year for you, but I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude.  I truly appreciate your business and continued support.  I feel very fortunate to have great stamping friends.  Sharing my passion for stamping brings joy to my life and I am grateful that you are a part of it.  It makes me happy to know that you pass on that joy when you send or give your thoughtfully handcrafted cards, scrapbooks, decor, and gifts to your friends and family.

There are a lot of exciting things in store for us in the coming year, and I can’t wait to share them with you!  The Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration are just around the corner, and I’m already booking dates.  Give me a call and you can be one of the first to see the fantastic new stamps, punches, and more!

May your Christmas be filled with joy and happiness.  Best wishes for the new year and may 2015 be filled with joy and prosperity.  Thank you!

Stampingly!

Liz

PS: I will be taking the rest of the year off to enjoy with my family.
