Dragonfly Dreamy!

I think this card looks a little dreamy! I have used Dragonfly dreams bundle for the dragonflies and sentiments. Falling in Love DSP and the So Detailed Thinlits. Also the yummy new ribbon you can get for free with a $50 purchase from the Sale A Bration catty. The pretty new embellishment on the right is from the occasions catty also.
Again I have used the Stitched Framlits. I just love those and can't help using them on everything!! That little stitching on the side just adds so much. To top it off I added some pearls to the dragonflies!

All of these products are now available so if you would like to purchase any of these you can shoot me an email, leave me a comment to contact you or order on my online store! If you do order on the online store please use Hostess code 6DMZEEBX.

More Chickens! And Catalog Premier Party Info!

I had lots of time yesterday to play with all the new goodies out of the Occasions and Sale A Bration catalogs. Here is some of what I came up with using the new Hey Chick set! You can get this set for free by spending $50. I have also used the new egg cartons out of the New Occasions catalog. I spritzed them with Sweet Sugarplum and Bermuda Bay. You just mix some ink and alcohol in a spritzer and spritz away. You have to be a little careful because the alcohol smell is a little strong!!

For my card I have used the new Hexagon Textured Embossing folder. This is one of the new thicker embossing folders. I inked the embossing folder before adding paper to it and running it thru the bigshot. This gave the hexagons a little more depth. I am loving the gingham paper still, this time I used the sweet sugarplum gingham out of the Succulent Garden DSP pack. 
I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits on both of these. They are scheduled to be back in stock January 16th. I have also used another Sale A Bration stamp set called Delicate Details on this card.

So there is still time to sign up for my Occasions Catalog Premier Party on Saturday January 21st. It is at 10am and we will be doing 6 projects, getting a goodie bag filled with goodies and there will be prize drawings and lunch. The cost is $30. There are just a few spots left!

Special Reason Bundle!

I love this Bundle! It is the Special Reason bundle out of the Occasions catalog and it goes perfect with the So Succulent Paper pack also. The colors are great! When I first saw it in the catalog I wasn't too impressed. But when I unpacked it and it was sitting across the table from me and I saw the colors together in person I loved it. Plus I love gingham prints, (and polka dots, and plaid and stripes!!).
The bottom card I have seen all over pinterest in lots of different colors and prints but the top one I was just playing with and put it together! The colors are Calypso Coral, Mint Macaroon, Old Olive, Sweet Sugarplum, Tip Top Taupe  and white. I really like the Calypso Coral and Tip Top Taupe together. If you want something pretty but not quite as girly they are perfect together!
The dies with the Special Reason Bundle are the Stylish Stems Framelits! They are Amazing! I love them. You can do the flower like the lower card or use the framelit to frame the flower and cut it out. It works for both sizes of flowers and also their are the frame dies with it for the sayings so that is cool also!

Well, off to make more samples. Only two weeks left until my big Catalog Premier Party and I still don't know for sure which projects to pick until I have finished making samples! (If thats possible to finish!). I did get my main project for the goodie bags done yesterday so that is good!!! I have one goodie bag done also so at least I know mostly what I am doing for that so that is a relief!!!

Happy Stamping!

My Dragonflies Have Landed!

I am making a project for the goodie bags for my Catalog Premier Party coming up on January 21st. These sparkly Dragonflies are going to be on one of the gifts. I have used the new Dragonfly dies coming out in the Occasions catty going live next week.
These little guys are much prettier in real life. I have cut them in watercolor paper and then used sponged daubers to color them with Island Indigo and Pool Party Ink. After that I brushed some Crystal Effects on their wings and spread Dazzling Diamond glitter on their wings.  For some extra
sparkle I added a few rhinestones down their bodies.
So if you want a fun gift with one of these on them just leave me a comment or send me an email and get signed up for my Catalog Premier Party on the 21st. I just have a few spots left!
Also if you would like to order some of these great new products you can contact me or order on my online store. I already have a couple of orders sitting on my desk waiting for the 4th to get here!!
Happy Stamping!

Pretty Pocket Card Kit!Card

Card Box

Three of Six Cards!

Other three of six!

Box with Cards!
Sometimes I buy kits but then I very rarely put them together. But I saw a video and it made me put all of these together.
This is the Pretty Pocket Card Kit. It is a Sale A Bration item free with a $50 purchase starting January 4th. This card comes with enough items to make 8 cards with 8 envelopes. But after watching Debbies Video I decided to play with this kit. Debbie has some great videos. So check her out. She is great for inspiration! Thanks Debbie!
So like I said it comes with enough product for 8 cards. But if you put two of the card bases together you can make this box! So then I made 6 cards and show in the last picture all 6 cards and the 8 envelope in the box. 
This box is almost the exact same size as a tissue box but just a little bit taller.
I love the colors of this kit. So Saffron and Pool Party. Pool Party has been so popular. It was featured a lot in the last Occasions catty and now in the new one also!
Happy Stamping!
