Beary Christmas

Here in my neck of the woods black bears are very popular – I’ve even had a few in my yard passing through. So when I saw the Beary Christmas Suite (162031) I saw endless possibilities for creating projects.

Check out these lovely cards using this group of products.

This first card uses simple stamping and a bit of heat embossing to create a lovely holiday card.

The Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper (162015) sets the color palette for this next card and uses a bit of fussy cutting for the “baby” bear to add a bit of layering.

The Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder (162026) adds a bit of texture and along with the Scalloped Contour Dies (155560). And if you want to step it up a bit more. Check out this fun fold using the Tailor Made Tags Dies (155563) as the sentiment mat.

The inside signature panel peeks out from behind the flap adding a bit more color highlighting the sentiment.

Whether you create using the Beary Cute Bundle (162023) or use the Beary Cute Punch (162022) to create silhouettes for other projects I think you’ll enjoy creating with this group of products.

Remember the 10% discount is only on the Beary Cute Bundle (162023) so you can order items separately too if something is temporarily out of stock so you don’t miss out on an item you’re wanting. And of course if you’d like I can notify you when a product is back in stock too so you don’t miss out.

Dies & More

Dies, Dies & More Dies. Oh my – And they are on Sale through the 18th! Whoo hoo! During Our Seasonal Sale you can get any of the Annual Catalog Dies on Sale for 20% off and there are some great die sets to choose from.

So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite versatile Die sets from the Annual Catalog. While these dies are great with the coordinating stamp set they are also great all by them selves with the set of your choice. I’ll start with a few of our free standing die sets, the first of which is the Tailored Made Tags (155563).

This die set is a great basic to use with all kind of projects – check out this fun card using the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) and the Artistically Inked stamp set (154542)

Another of my favorites is the Tasteful Labels Dies (152886). This set of dies has some great basic shapes that can be used in tons of ways! Check out this next card using this set of dies.

This card uses the Nature’s Beauty stamp set (150528) stamped on the label and the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (155841) to highlight this wonderful sketched deer image.

And speaking of dies I reach for over and over again, how about the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (151690) that were used on this next card.

While this next card uses the beautiful pansy print from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807).

The big bold sentiment is perfect for this card and comes from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set (155034) found on page 38 of the Annual Catalog. And another wonderful die set that has great basic shapes is the Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) this was one of my first choices from the Annual Catalog this year since the layering scallop rectangles are sooo versatile and work so well with lots of other sets.

While the Color & Contour stamp set that coordinates with these dies is great it works wonderfully with all kinds of stamp sets. Check out these next 2 cards.

This first card uses the Sweet as a Peace stamp set (155050) and for a totally different look that uses the same die shape, check out this card using the Path to Greatness stamp set (155454) and the Stacked Stone Background stamp (152556).

And if you love labels with a flair – you’ll want to be sure to check out the Ornate Layers (152726) die set and Ornate Frames Dies (150664) that were used to create these next 2 cards.

Team them up with a great stamp set like the Forever Fern (152559) and Very Versailles (149275) and you’ll have a great look.

And of course we also have some wonderful that are great on their own since they are silhouettes. Like this wonderful nature scene? The Inspiring Canopy Dies (155963) create a wonderful silhouette look for any project.

Or the Many Layered Blossoms Dies (153582) that were used for this next card.

Whew, as you can see we have so many great dies to choose from you’ll want to be sure to check them out while the sale is going on, but you’ll want to hurry since the Seasonal Sale ends on Thursday, November 18th at 11:50 pm (MT). You can stop by my Online Store to check them all out today! Simply Click HERE.

Flower & Friendship Maui Swaps

Today’s cards all feature the Flower & Friendship Bundle (155590). This Bundle is a lot of fun to work with since it contains a punch, making it quick and easy! And who doesn’t love flowers?

This first card uses our Polished Pink and Soft Succulent to create a fun fold card.

The 2021 In Color Designer Series Paper (155641) was used for the flowers – simply stamped on the pattern and then punched out. A great way to add some interest quickly to an image like this

making this card bright and cheerful. The sentiment was cut out using the Layering Circle Dies (151770) and the fun little dragonfly was punched from Soft Succulent card stock using the Dragonflies Punch (154240). Don’t you love how our products coordinate?

This next card uses the fun patterns from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (Host 155426) and the Basic Borders Dies (155558).

Did you know that you can get this Designer Series Paper for free? It’s easy simply plan a party with me and be a Host or place a qualifying order.

During the special Host promotion that ends on June 14th you can not only earn this but also have an extra $25 added to your host benefits. Why not contact me today and set up a time for your party? Choose from a book party, facebook, or even an in person event today!

This final card uses our new Tailor Made Tag Dies (155563) to highlight the sentiment.

The Hand Penned Designer Series Paper peaks out from behind a wonderful sponged background and the little White Vellum shape has been cut out using our Painted Labels Dies (151605) for a bit more added dimension. Soft color that has an impact for this card.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing more swaps from Maui with you!
