Merry Tags Valentine!

What, did I title this post Merry Tags Valentine?  Yes, I did!!  The Merry Tags Framelits are on sale this month for 50% off!!!  This price is while supplies last so hurry over to MY STORE and get yours!

I used the medallion ornament as a layering piece for this Valentine's Day Card.

Tin_of_tags_loveThere are lots of things on this card that are on sale:

Tin Of Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set
$21.00
$16.80

I die cut the fancy ornament out of Basic Black and trimmed off the ornament hanger.  I also die cut the solid ornament from Whisper White and cut the hanger off of that piece too.  I layered them together and added a heart cut from Bushing Bride Glimmer Paper.

I cropped a scallop circle from Melon Mambo to place behind the ornament, I used the #5 scallop.  You can download a printable sizing chart for all of our layering framelits. Download Layering_framelits_sizes

The greeting is from the Tin of Tags stamp set and I inked it in Memento Tuxedo Black and added a few Melon Mambo sequin hearts to make it pop.

Peaceful Pines Gift Card Holder

 CloseoutYear End Closeout going on through January 3rd.  However, prices are available while supplies last so order early!!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some of these items are not only retiring but are on sale!)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)

Here is a fun Gift Card Holder for you.  My club gals made this at our November gatherings.  It is super cute and really easy.

GC_peaceful_pines_closed

The sleeve measures 7-1/2 x 3-3/4 and it is scored at 3-1/2 & 7.   I stamped the present image from the Peaceful Pines stamp set in Cherry Cobbler along the bottom edge.  Cropped a scalloped oval out of the center of the middle panel with the #5 Layering Ovals die and then cropped that piece with the #4 Layering Oval.

I have a printable document that shows you all the sizes of the three Layering Framelits sets that we currently have - Download Layering_framelits_sizes

The inside card measures 11 x 3-3/4 and is scored at 2 & 6-1/2.   I chose two patterns from the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack and cut them in half so I had four 3 x 6 pieces.  I cut these pieces at 4-1/4.  Put one 4-1/4 x 3 piece on the front of the card and a 1-3/4 x 3 piece from a different pattern on the inside of the card where the gift card will go.  I made four of these from two sheets of the DSP.

GC_peaceful_pines_card
I stamped the inside of the card with the BYOP (buy your own present) stamp from the B.Y.O.P. stamp set in Garden Green ink.  I also added a tree in the same color from the Peaceful Pines stamp set.

GC_peaceful_pines_open

The front of the card uses one of the Stitched Shapes ovals mounted on the layering Oval I cut from Cherry Cobbler.  The tree, star and tree stand are all stamped on Crumb Cake and cropped with framelits from the Perfect Pines Framelits set. 

GC_peaceful_pines_half

The final touch was to wrap a double strand of the Garden Green Baker's Twine around the sleeve, tie it in a bow and add a red jingle bell with a Mini Glue Dot.

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some of these items are not only retiring but are on sale!)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)
_________________________________________________________________

I combined the Perfect Pines Framelits and the Pine Bough Folder on this card.  The folder was used on the Cherry Cobbler card base and I die cut the tree from Emerald Envy.  I cropped a 2" strip of Crumb  Cake cardstock with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and added a strip of the Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim to the edge. 

Peaceful_pines_lace
A strip of Washi Tape from the Presents & Pinecones set and a strip of Copper Foil Sheets adds some interest behind the tree.  The greeting is from the Peaceful Pines stamp set and I stamped in Early Espresso.

Cozy Critters Gift Tags

CloseoutYear End Closeout going on through January 3rd.  However, prices are available while supplies last so order early!!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some of these items are not only retiring but are on sale!)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)

Here are a couple of adorable gift tags that I created using the Cozy Critters Host set.  This set can be "purchased" with Host Rewards but hurry as it is on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List so it is only available through January 3rd.   You earn Host Rewards when you place an order or have a party with a merchandise total of $150 or more.

Cozy_critters_tags
I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on a 2" strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I trimmed it to length after I had done my stamping.  Then I added a 2-3/16" wide strip of Soft Suede (I cut it to length after I cut the tag) and then I added a 2-3/8" strip of the diagonal stripe Real Red Designer Series Paper.  This paper is from the Brights Stack.  The Designer Series Paper Stacks are a wonderful addition to your stash as polka dots and stripes are always in style. :-)

I stamped the owl and fox images on Crumb Cake cardstock, once in Real Red, cleaned the stamp and stamped it again in Soft Suede.  I fussy cut the red scarfs and glued them to the cirtters. 

The critters were cropped with the coordinating Fox Builder Punch and Owl Builder Punch .  The hat is cropped from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Real Red Cardstock using the Jolly Hat Builder Punch (which is 40% off right now!!)

Detailed Floral Thinlits - part of Year End Closeout

CloseoutYear End Closeout going on through January 3rd.  However, prices are available while supplies last so order early!!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some are on sale)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)

The Detailed Floral Thinlits are part of the Year End Closeout and I have a fun card for you using them.

Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies

Detailed_floral_half_card_front

I started with a Pool Party card base and I placed the larger die near the bottom of the card and drew a light pencil line across the top of the die.  I removed the large die and added the edgelit just above my pencil line and ran it through the Big Shot.  Cut down the fold line until you reach the die cut line.

Floral_phrases_half_open

I then used the larger die with the edgelit on a piece of Basic Black and added it to the front of the card.

Detailed_floral_half_card

Add a panel of Whisper White to the inside of the card, stamp a greeting and add a tiny flower from the Bloomin Heart Thinlits and stamp the flower from the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  Finish the whole thing off with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Snowman - Jar of Cheer!

CloseoutYear End Closeout going on through January 3rd.  However, prices are available while supplies last so order early!!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some are on sale)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)


I have a few cards I created with the Jar of Cheer stamp set that coordinates with the Everyday Jars Framelits.  Both the Jar of Cheer and Jar of Haunts are on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List so they won't be available after January 3rd.  Both of these sets are must haves if you are loving the Everyday Jars Framelits.

This card uses Marina Mist card stock and the diagonal stripe pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.  I love these color collection Designer Series Paper Stacks.  Any card can use polka dots or diagonal stripes, very versatile paper.

Jar_cheer_snowman
I used the tree stamp with Marina Mist ink to create a background behind the jar.   I stamped the greeting from Wondrous Wreath in Versamark and then heat embossed it with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.  I inked the snowman and jar images in Basic Black so I could water color them and then I cropped it with the jar framelit.  The lid is stamped in Versamark and heat set with the Silver Embossing Powder and I added some Silver Metallic Thread behind the jar.  The DSP is cut on the diagonal and I layered a piece of the Silver Glitter Ribbon behind it.  The main layer is attached to a card base of Thick Whisper White. If you haven't tried the Thick Whisper White Cardstock, you are truly missing out.  I use it exclusively for card bases!
