Graveyard Gate Bundle

Do you love Halloween?  Stampin’ Up! has some amazing Halloween stamp sets and dies in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  One of these sets is called the Graveyard Gate Bundle.  It includes a the Graveyard Gate stamp set and the Detailed Gate Thinlits Dies.  You can save 10% by purchasing them both in a Bundle.

Here is a video showing this fun Bundle:


Oh So Eclectic

After having a birthday, I needed to get back on the Thank You card wagon.  My family gave me some amazing gifts.  I told them all I really wanted is for all of them to come see me but that wasn’t quite possible since they live so far away so gifts was the next best thing!  David did come out for dinner with us that night, which was fun.

I made this card using the stamp set called Oh So Eclectic.  This stamp set has some matching Framelits called Eclectic Layers and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  These are both part of a suite which usually means there are other products that go with them.  In this case, there is Designer Series Paper called Naturally Eclectic,  There are card overlays which are also called Naturally Eclectic.  I love the way Stampin’ Up! puts these products to together to help take the guesswork out of matching products up.  Although I didn’t use all of these products on this card, I will list them below for your convenience.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Thankful Thoughts.

Eastern Palace Christmas

I know most people celebrate a Christmas in July event but this July I just wasn’t ready for it.  Maybe it was because the weather up here was so nice and I spent more time enjoying the warmth then thinking about a winter holiday.

In any case, Stampin’ Up! sent me a copy of the upcoming 2017 Holiday Catalog a couple of weeks ago. As a Demonstrator, we get to see it early.  Let me tell you. It is amazing.  There are so many gorgeous holiday stamps in that catalog that you are going to have a hard time choosing which one you want.  If you are like me, you buy a bunch of them anyway.

One of the things I always look for are some holiday sentiment sets.  I love big fonts and I love elegant fonts.  This year, there are a few to choose from (yay!).  I used Snowflake Sentiments on this card.  Isn’t that font just gorgeous?!?

To make this card I used the Eastern Palace Suite.  This suite includes stamps, dies, Designer Series Paper, embellishments and these beautiful Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.  Everything in this suite coordinates with each other.  Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to do this.  The only problem you will have is deciding which suite to purchase!

Lift Me Up

Have you ever been to a hot air balloon festival or had a ride in one?  I have not but I have seen them from a distance.  All the balloons in the air look amazing and beautiful.  Each one is different and they are all so colorful.  Personally, I would probably be scared to death to ride in one.  I am not really fond of heights although I don’t have Acrophobia (fear of heights).

The stamp set I used in this card is called Lift Me Up.  It was in the 2017 Occasions Catalog and was carried over  into the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  It has a set of matching Thinlit called Up & Away which make it so easy to cut out the balloons.

I used our new Embossing Paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks to make the clouds.  I purposely didn’t try to smooth out the clouds because I wanted them to look a little fluffy.  Stampin’ Up!  Embossing past is amazing.  It is really easy to work with and dries fairly quickly so you don’t have to wait all day to continue making your project.  Stampin’ Up! even sells a set of three Palette Knives to help you spread the Embossing Paste evenly.
