Holiday Catalogue Christmas Card

I am so happy with all the new stuff from the Holiday catalogue! I can hardly wait to share it with you. (if you would like your own copy, please email me or leave a comment).
Here is a card based on the Mojo Monday Sketch 407.
The sketch:

Sketch 407

and my card:
Jolly Christmas

wooden snowflakes embossed in Smokey Slate
I used Smokey Slate embossing powder on the wooden snowflakes. They turned out great!
All products are from the new Holiday catalogue. The stamp set is called Jolly Christmas and features the beautiful stag as well as several sentiments. The Merry Moments designer series paper is a paper stack that coordinates with the Merry Moments paper in the annual catalogue. the silver cording is perfect for tags and packages.
Thanks for stopping by!

Painter's Tape Technique

The second Tuesday of every month is Technique Tuesday at my stamping studio! If you are in the area, come on by...7:00pm-8:30pm and learn a new technique every month! (cost is only $5.00, and the Keurig is on)!
This past Tuesday we learned the Painter's Tape Technique. Here is the card we made:

Moose from Walk in the Wild.

We used Smokey Slate, Sahara Sand and Mint Macaron ink with the painter's tape, and Early Espresso for the moose and sentiment..
Then one of my stamping guests suggested we should try other colour combinations, and I was holding the Vintage Leaves stamp sets at the time and immediately thought fall colours! Tangerine Tango, Delightful Dejan, Soft Suede and Old Olive were my choices, with the leaves done in Early espresso. Here is the card:

Vintage Leaves stamp set.

For a video showcasing this technique, visit Scot Strehlow at StampinSiblings.
Yes, I know I should make my own videos. maybe someday...let's just be glad I am blogging again. One step at a time. :)
Thanks for looking!

Halloween a Bit Early?

 For me, it is never too early for Halloween. This card features one of my favourite stamp sets (and matching framelits) from the Holiday catalogue. I am also loving the new halloween designer series paper! the BOO is cut from black sparkly paper, and I added googlie eyes to my owl.

This is the sketch I used.

Here are 8 of these cute cards all ready to mail out! (I am taking part in a Holiday catalogue swap).
Come back tomorrow to see MORE great Holiday catalogue samples!


Holiday Catalogue Goodies Came!

I love pre-order time! This Holiday catalogue is the absolute BEST catalogue ever! As demonstrators, we get to order these goodies a month early, and if we want (I want) we can spend extra money and have the goodies arrive in 3 days! As customers, you can order on September 1st.

 As always, Stamp Bear loves getting the pre-orders as well. He really likes the wooden snowflakes.
Tune in next time when I will show you the very first card made with some of this cool new product!
