Holiday Catalogue Live September 1

I am so excited that this catalogue is finally live tomorrow so you can start ordering stuff for the upcoming holidays. This time of the year is so fun with lots of crafting opportunities for Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas.
I have already been playing with many of the seasonal stamp sets and accessories. Yesterday, at my Holiday Catalogue Release party, I had a few projects made up with their coordinating stamp sets, framelits, punches, and other fun accessories on display. If you weren't able to make it, here are some photos.
Thankful Forest Friends stamp set, Into the Woods DSP, and Into the Woods elements (p.43)

Sweet Hauntings stamp set (p.47), Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set bundle (p.49)

Among the Branches bundle (p.39), Spider Web Doilies (p.47)

Peaceful Wreath stamp set (p.21) and Wonderful Wreath framelits (p.172 annual catalogue)

Softly Falling embossing folder (p24), Peaceful Wreath stamp set (p.21), Wonderful Wreath framelits (p.172 annual catalogue)

White Christmas stamp set (p.68 annual catalogue)

Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set bundle (p.49), Sweet Hauntings stamp set and Happy Haunting DSP (p.47) and Note Tag punch (p.166 annual catalogue), Gift Bag Punch Board (p.150 annual catalogue)

The Halloween products would be so much fun to use with your kids. They can make cards to give to their friends and teachers, and with the Gift Bag punch board, they can make treat bags for their friends.
If you don't yet have your Holiday catalogue, give me a call and let's arrange to get one in your hands. Any questions? Don't hesitate contacting me.

Blended Bloom

The Blended Bloom stamp was introduced around the time that the Blendabilities alcohol markers were and it was the perfect image for colouring and taking full advantage of the blending capabilities of those markers. Unfortunately the Blendabilities were taken off the shelf due to quality issues leaving customers with the stamp which also ended up on a shelf because they weren't sure how to use it. Well, slowly other colouring methods were introduced, one of which was to stamp the image on watercolour paper then colour it using the ink pads and the watercolour brush.

One of my customers hosted a party over the weekend and she requested I design the make-n-take around this stamp set. Due to the number of guests and time, watercolouring was not an option so I designed these two cards.

If you'd like to make these two cards, then register for my Stamp Cafe this Friday, August 28. If you can't make it but want to make them on your own, the supplies used follow the images.
