That's right.  Our NEW Holiday Catalog will go live August 15th.  There are so many great stamp sets, die cuts and new product in the catalog.  You can't help but like it.  You can click on the images in the side bar to go to my website to check out the catalog and order.  I would love to be able to serve you. 

One of the NEW things we also have are digital images to match the stamp sets.  If you have a supporting cutting system that will take a PNG. file you can order the images (very reasonable) to use with the stamps.  Below is the list we have so far.  They are all out of the NEW Holiday Catalog. 

These can be ordered with a regular order and will come to you via your computer to download. 
I hope you enjoy the Holiday Catalog as much as I have.  Please let me know if I can be of any help to you.  You can always email me.
Have a great and blessed day!!!!

A "Different Fold" Card

Happy Monday to everyone!!!  Hope you had a great weekend.  We had a nice weekend and now time to get back to the week of busy!!!! 

This week at the A Muse Consultant Challenge Blog we are previewing some of the new items in the Holiday Catalog which goes lives August 15th.  I have a couple of cards there as well as cards from other Consultants.  You may want to go and take a look.

Here is the Halloween Card I did.  I will list below the items I used and the paper dimensions if you would like to try the "different fold" card. 

Onyx cardstock:  PAPS100
1 piece cut 5 1/2"x 4 1/4"
1 piece cut 5 1/2"x3"  Scored at 4 1/4" and folded on score line
1 Circle from Nestabilites...I used a cut out scalloped border nestie.
Orange Chevron cardstock:  PACV301
1 piece cut 5 1/4"x4"
Orange Petite Polka Dot cardstock:  PAPP301
1 piece cut 2 3/4"x4"
Onyx Petite Polka Dot cardstock:  PAPP100
1 Classic Circle Nestabilitie
Sugar cardstock:  PAPS001
Scraps to stamp three ghosts
Stamp Set:....SNSD081
Happy Haunting
Die Set:  TAD0061
Happy Haunting Die Set
Ink Pad:  IVFP082
Versafine Onyx Black
Watercolors & watercolor brush
Die Cutting Machine

Adhere the smaller onyx piece of cardstock to the bigger onyx piece, adhering the smaller flap piece to the bigger piece.  This gives you the opening part of the card.  You then adhere the chevron cardstock to the bigger black piece.  Adhere the orange petite polka dot to the small onyx "flap" piece.  Next you can adhere the onyx petite polka dot circle to the larger onyx scalloped circle.  Cut out three ghosts using the Happy Haunting die set.  Stamp the matching ghosts onto the die cuts.  Watercolor the outer edges of the ghosts with green watercolor paint.  Adhere two of the ghosts to the black circle and the other ghost to the chevron piece of cardstock so it is peeping out from the circle.  Stamp sayings of your choice from the stamp set onto your card.  ENJOY!!!

I hope you enjoyed the card today.  If you need any help with the instructions please email me. 

Have a great Monday!!!!!!

God Bless!!!!!

Petite Pindot Chevrons

Here is a simple card I did using our Petite Pindot Cardstocks and the Southern Sass stamp set.  Such an easy card and fun to do.  The pindot colors are Wasabi and Grapefruit. 

I also added some twine with a flower and a brad.  I used the Cosmos flower.  I love that flower.  They are so much fun to use...I have colored them, stamped on them and just used them plain like I above. 
To make my Chevrons...I used a square punch and then cut them in half on the diagonal.  To get them good and straight across the card, I made a score line with my Scor-Pal (indent down) and butted the pindots up to the score line.  I actually layered this card using white on white.  It was easier to do that way with scoring the line to line up the pindots.  I also love the look of white on white. 
Hope you enjoy the card.  It was fun making it. 

Happy Stamping!!!!!

With it being chilly here today.  What is with the weather?  It is the end of May and I just want it to be warm.  I thought I would share a Butterfly card.  I am so ready for pretty colors and to see butterflies and warm weather to come and stay. 

I did see a similar card to this on Pinterest.  I used the Papillion Stamp Set, Lots of Dots Stamp Set, You're too Kind Stamp Set, Lime ink pad, Bubblegum ink pad, ocean ink pad and Versafine black ink pad.  I also used Sugar and onyx cardstocks along with with my score pal and a little bit of glitter for some blitz.  What a fast and easy card.  I loved it and it could be used for different occasions.

I do hope that everyone has a great weekend since this is the beginning of the Memorial Day Weekend.  Please remember why this Holiday is Celebrated and thank our Military and Remember those that have protected us and fought for us.

Have a safe and wonderful weekend.

My My I'm such a Blogger Slacker

I can't believe it has been since January since I have posted.  I am hoping that will change in June.  A lot of my volunteer jobs will be coming to an end then and will free up some time.
I still have been trying to get my business back up and running.  I have started some classes back up and even had a couple of workshops and done a couple other events.  All in all it is going well. 
Today I am sharing a card that I have shared over at the Amuse Studio Challeng Blog.  The challenge this week is all about your favorite color combinations.  I love using our new grapfruit and wasabi. 

Here is some of the products I used on the card:  Grapefruit Petite Polka Dot Cardstock for the Base, Wasabi Cardstock with the Scallop Border Dies, Onyx Cardstock with Classic Scallop Nestibilities, Papaya Petite Pinstripe, Sugar Carsdstock with Standard Circle Nestibilities, Onyx Petite Polka Dot Cardstock with Butterfly Trio Die Set, 1/4" Organdy Polka Dot Onyx Ribbon, Modern Zinnia Stamp Set, Southern Sass Stamp Set and Versa Fine Black Stamp Pad.
You can find all of this by visiting my website

I hope you enjoy the card.  It was fun making it.  The saying stamp set Southern Sass has some of the cutest sayings in it.  You really need to check it out!

Have a wonderful and blessed day!!!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner

I think I need to post something here.  Why do I let time get away from me?  Anyway the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog is back up and doing challenges.  Since I am on the design team there I thought I would post here also what our first challenge is about. 
The first challenge is a Valentine Treat Holder.  I actually made a couple of little things to show.  The first one is actually a "card" treat holder.  I used our french fry box die for the candy holder.  You can also stick a gift card in there if you so choose.  I decided to add it to a card to make it more personable. 

The second thing I did was a little candy heart holder made with the 1"x8" clear bags.  Very simple and a cute class party favor.
You can go over to the A Muse Challenge Blog and see what everyone else has done.  If you have some treat holders made be sure to link us to your blog to see your creations.  If you don't have anything made, you have time.  Our challenge will run for two weeks.
