Bear Hugs SC 2016 Occasions Catalog Swap

Cute right? What father wouldn’t love getting this card?

And you can purchase this set and framelits in a money saving bundle (140822/140823) while supplies last or until May 31st when the Occasions Catalog ends. (While you’ll find these items in our 2016 Annual Catalog they won’t be offered in the Bundle any longer.)

And here are some more wonderful masculine cards I received from my fellow demonstrators in swaps.

This first one was given to me by Trudy. She used the stamp set From Land to Sea (138720/139361) and created the sand dunes using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set (139971).

Clever girl – I love it when you can use stamps and punches for other things!

And finally this card uses one of my favorite sets, Guy Greetings (138825/138828/137178).

I love all the texture on this card – It uses the Boho Chic (138286), and  two of our retiring Embossing folders, Honeycomb (129378) and Chevron  (127749).

I can’t pick a favorite. How about you? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best!

Bear Hugs & What I Love

Do you love bears? If so, I think you’ll love this cute card that I received from Marilynn in my recent swap. It uses our Bear Hugs Bundle (140822/140823) found on page 40 of the Occasions Catalog.

This card is perfect for Valentine’s Day since it was teamed up with our Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I like the fun addition of the Silver Glimmer Paper for the bow time and skirt too. What do you think?

And this second card is from our exclusive Sale-a-bration selection of stamps. The What I Love stamp set (141276) is a photopolymer set that includes 10 stamps. It is considered a two step stamp since you can build layers of color to create more depth.

What I Love 2016 SC SAB Catalog Swap

Two step stamps are a lot of fun to play with because the color combinations are endless and allow you to create a ton of different looks from just one set of stamps.

Laura used Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant to create this lovely blossom. And can you see the elegant Venetian Crochet Trim (134581) peaking out from behind the Modern Mosaic (129984) embossed layer? What a great way to use this trim!
