As I mentioned yesterday, I’m holding a catalog launch on Wednesday (also on Monday 9th) and today I’m sharing one of the make and takes. I love the Beautiful You stamp set – it’s so simple, has elegant lines and you can make a super card with very little effort. Perfect for a make and take!

So, here we have a very simple elegant card using the Beautiful You stamp set which will be available for purchase tomorrow. I stamped the image using the archival basic black and added the watercolour like wash in emerald envy using the same colour for the sentiment. I also put the piece of whisper white onto a card base of emerald envy. I hope that my launch stampers like it.

Don’t forget the great close out sale currently going on and also the offer from me (both ending TODAY!)- a new, free stamp set.

I’m not really sure how this card evolved; I meant to play with the large single dragonflies that are part of the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies but somehow I had the five little ones cut out of gold foil before I knew what had happened! It’s a really fun bundle. I tried the Falling in Love DSP that I used yesterday but finally settled on a piece from the Serene Scenery DSP stack.

I glued the piece of DSP to an island indigo card base before doing the embossing. I’m not sure that it would be so easy to emboss on DSP – possible, yes since I’ve embossed on more delicate vellum before, but I figured it would be easier to handle with the card base supporting it. The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set which is bundled with the dies. Then to finish, all I had to do was to glue on the gold foil dragonflies – again using the silicon mat and a sponge dauber.

I’m excited for the official start of the Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration on Wednesday. I’m holding a launch party with make and takes and refreshments which should be really fun. If you’re close to Randolph, NJ and would like to attend, drop me an email.

Of course the beginning of Sale-a-bration means that the great close out sale currently going on is almost ending – tomorrow in fact is the last day. That’s also the case with the offer from me – a new, free stamp set. Just spend $40 with me and use the workshop code CBUJ4GTP, and you get to select one of Hey, Chick, Delicate Details or Designer Tee which I’ll send you for free once I close out this workshop on January 3rd. Check here for the details and also pictures of these stamp sets. If you spend $60, I’ll send you the pearl or rhinestone basic jewels as well.

I decided to have some fun today and pulled out my new So Detailed Thinlits Dies. I didn’t have any sort of card in mind but it became a celebration card which seems fitting for the first day of 2017. Not only did I play with the beautiful new dies, I used the new Falling in Love designer series paper and matching stamp set, So in Love. It’s all part of the new Falling in Love suite. I love the bokeh look of the paper, so beautiful.

I took the colours for my card from the DSP – blushing bride and sahara sand – and cut the flowers using the So Detailed Thinlits dies. Next I stamped my sentiment in sahara sand onto a piece of blushing bride and originally I intended to have the banner cover the complete width of the card, but it just didn’t look right. So I figured out where I wanted the banner and cut the end of it off with the So Detailed Thinlits Dies so that it would match up perfectly. I then took my blushing bride cut out and snipped off the part that helps you use this to make a wrap around card and glued it onto the edge of my piece of DSP. Since it’s a detailed die cut, I used my sponge dauber and silicone mat with the multi purpose glue to gently dab glue onto the die cut eradicating any oozing. After attaching this to a blushing bride card base, I glued on my banner, matching up the cut outs. I love how this came out.
