2019 Annual Catalog

Sneak Peek: Floral Essence

Ready for another sneak peek?  


I created my own black and white striped background paper and used the Floral Essence stamp set.  These blooms do not have dies to cut them out but they are not very intricate so they are easy to cut by hand.  The leaves were punched out using the Perennial Essence Flower punch.  Isn't it great that they can be used for leaves too?


I made my own black glimmer paper by mixing Dazzling Diamonds glitter and Clear embossing powder and embossing it on black card stock.  In the upcoming catalog there is a new embossing powder called Shimmer Black.  I cannot wait to see if will create the same effect.

Sneak Peek: To a Wild Rose

I took a little time today and played with To a Wild Rose stamp set which is gorgeous!  This stamp set is kind of a magical. Good job Mary Ellen Byler!  This is Mary Ellen Byler's Million Dollar stamp set and it is both Two-Step and Distinktive which equals beautiful!


The outline is stamped full strength in Flirty Flamingo.  The  solid flower image I stamped off twice to get a very  light overall color.  The detail stamp I stamped off once so it stood out but didn't overpower the outline.  Isn't is pretty?  The stamp set also has coordinating dies and is available as a bundle. 


The flowers are layered on one of the frames from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper (R)( which in this case stands for retiring).  I love the diamond shapes and how it looks like a trellis. Underneath the frame  I have a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock.  I really like Flirty Flamingo with Mossy Meadow!  

The lovely "hello"  is also from the To a Wild Rose stamp set and I love the hand lettered look.  The sentiment is stamped on a Stitched Nested Label which is part of the Free as a Bird Bundles but can also be purchased seperately.  

This new bundle will be available in the new catalog but be sure to check out the Last Chance list to make sure you don't miss out on products that are retiring.

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Retiring Favorites

SDBH Banner

Today's card has a little bit of everything.  It has something new, a lot that is  retiring, and a few things sold out.  


On this card I used the Florentine Thinlits die (sold out) to cut out the Wood Textures DSP(retiring)  I love how it looks like a lattice.  The branches were stamped using the Best Birds stamp set(retiring)  and then cut out using the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (retiring).  The pretty pink flowers were punched using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack, which is  sold out. 


What is new?  The 2 cute little birdies were cut out from the upcoming Bird Ballad DSP.  It is another gorgeous pack of paper and definitely one to put on your shopping list.

This is a tricky time of year.  The stamp sets on the Annual Catalog Retiring List and the Occasions Catalog Retiring List are guaranteed to be available until May 24th but the other items on the list are only available while supplies last.  I hate for you to miss out on something you really want so be sure to place your order soon.

Enjoy the rest of the hop!
