Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Non-Traditional Christmas
The Lots to Love Box Framelit Dies

Flying Home and a Charming Cafe

Checking in today with a sneak peek of some adorable stamps sets coming in the Occasions catalog.  


To create this card I combined the Flying Home stamp set and the Charming Cafe bundle.  Isn't it sweet?  I was so happy to discover that the Cafe Builder framelits framed this image perfectly.   You can be sure I will be checking to see what else fits. 


I colored the images using Stampin' Blends on Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I wanted a one layer card.  I soon realized that I would need to line the front panel and the back panel, to hide the bleed through from the Stampin' Blends.  It wasn't hard to do but it was a good reminder for future projects.  I wanted to keep things simple so I finished the card off with some Pool Party Solid Baker's twine and some Wink of Stella on the flowers and birds.  

Hope you liked this sneak peek!  I will be sharing more sneak peeks matched with current products.  Stop by again soon.

Oh my, Sharon, what a gorgeous card! I love the way you've combined the Charming Cafe bundle with the Flying Home stamp set. They work together beautifully! Great work colouring, too. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Hi Sharon, welcome and thank you for posting your lovely card on the Watercooler Wednesday "Occasions" challenge this week. I love seeing the sneak peaks and can't wait to see the new catalogue in January. Your card really gives me something to look forward to. Beautifully stamped and coloured. Thanks for the tip about the bleed through from the blends....something to remember.

So your card is four thicknesses? Love both stamp sets and love how you combined them.

Hi Kate! Here's what I did. I started off with a card base of Thick Whisper White card stock. Once I realized that there was bleed through I added a 4" x 5-1/4" sheet to the back of the front also cut with the Cafe Builder framelit. This covered up the bleed through on the front. I could have left the back of the card as is since it is the back but decided to also cover up the bleed through. I used Whisper White (regular stock) for the layers. It is a tad thick but not very different from my usual cards except that the layers are more functional vs decorative. THanks for stopping by.
