From Our Home To Yours

 

The sights and sounds of Christmas are magical, but the aroma of fresh evergreen and scented pine cones fill me with joy!  These new Honey Bee Stamps goodies are filling me with lots of crafting joy!


For my card, I used  Spellbinders Plaid Company Embossing Folder on white cardstock for the background.  If you love holiday sprigs, boughs and foliage like I do, you'll adore Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Winter Greenery dies!  This large set includes 11 dies with which you can create limitless bouquets, swags, adornments and more!  

The bouquet I created is gathered together in the fabulous Honey Bee Stamps Vintage Picnic Basket dies that I cut the main part of the basket from plaid pattern paper.  I know I'll be using this die all year round! 

I used Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Winter Birds dies and selected the cardinal in this set to 'sit' on the basket. Then to finish, added the sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Home For The Holidays.

It's TIME To Celebrate!


 Get ready to celebrate with Pink & Main's newest release! The NEW Cuckoo Clock stamp set with coordinating dies is so unique and wonderful. It immediately brought my mind back to my grandma's house when I was young. She had a cuckoo clock and I got so excited when the hands hit the top of the hour and the little people would come out of the door to delightful music!


For my card, I created a background with dark brown cardstock and the NEW Basket Embossing Folder -- isn't it awesome?! Coloring the images in the Cuckoo Clock set was so fun -- and there are many other images in this set as well! The sentiment is stamped on blue cardstock and cut with one of the Stitched Circle dies.

Let's Party!

 

  

Pink & Main's November Release goes LIVE tomorrow...that's certainly something to PARTY about!


For my card, I created the background by first using the Sunshine Layers Stencil, applied Embossing/Watermark Ink and then heat embossed with two NEW embossing powders: Hydrangea and Warm Sunset plus Martini Olive. I then blended oxide inks using Ergonomic Blending Brushes and splattered some white paint. These super fun images are from the new Party Time stamps and coordinating dies! I also applied some Touch of Gloss to the disco ball.
