Joyful Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a “simply” beautiful card using the Peaceful Prints Designer paper, and today I have another with this paper but highlighting the NEW Holly Border Punch. It was something on my Wish List so today I wanted to share this card with you… these two holiday treats paired perfectly together.

Like you, I get bogged down with work, chores, kids … yes, mine are older but they still call Mom!! lol So I like to share pretty cards that are quick & easy card to make. A little layering and it looks all decked out!!

I chose this cute polka dot paper so the green would show through the punched holly! It’s actually 2 pieces, one behind the holly punch and the other as our background. I used Basic Black with the Holly punch to create an eye catching impact!

I layered a piece of red plaid behind the holly piece to add a pop of color and to coordinate and make the Red Rhinestones light up the card. I used the “Take Your Pick” tool to pick up and apply the rhinestones to my card.

Both designer paper patterns are from the limited time offer Peaceful Prints Designer Paper as our background. This paper is just one of the items you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase!

I used the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set for my greeting, it is stamped with our Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and punched with the Double Oval punch.

I used the adorable White Glitter Organdy Ribbon to tie together all of the white on the card and add just a little more sparkle, as if the 23 Red Rhinestones didn’t do it!! Some girls like their sparkle … just saying 😉

Don’t forget … the Peaceful Prints designer paper is FREE for a limited time. Our Sale-a-bration period ends in just 3 days! I have included a list of ingredients for you below.

Thank you for joining me day. I hope your day is a good one!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We just kicked back to welcome autumn in with it’s warm days, cool nights and stunning colors and then got a major jolt when “this” was announced …. YIKES!

Are you ready? If you are looking for a quick & easy card to make this holiday season this could be exactly what you are looking for …. And the Designer Paper is FREE!

We begin with this limited time offer Peaceful Prints Designer Paper as our background. This paper is just one of the items you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase! The red plaid with white snowflakes such a fun holiday print, and just one of many “merry” patterns.

Here is the entire packet of the Peaceful Prints Designer Series paper …

I chose to compliment this designer paper with a pop of Basic Black in the form of a banner and the card base. Another banner was added in Basic White to stamp our greeting.

I used the Shimmer Snowflake to draw your eye to the focal point … our deer! The deer uses the coordinating punch and Peaceful Printed designer paper. That’s right, the deer is punched from the designer paper …

This cute card is easy to make and you’ll love saving money on your cards this year because the Peaceful Prints designer paper is FREE! I have a list of ingredients below for you.

Enhance Designer Papers with Embossing Paste

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share the cards that we made last night on my Facebook LIVE … I shared how you can enhance your designer papers using Embossing Paste and the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks. I figured the masks were in the Gingerbread & Peppermint suite for a reason … so that is where I started!

I also wanted to show you that some of the masks line up pretty nice with some of our other designer papers. Here I used the Peaceful Deer bundle and the Peaceful Prints Designer paper from the Sale-a-bration Catalog … which means you can get it FREE with a $50 purchase.

Now join me and watch the video as I show you how easy it is to create these cards! Then I will be sharing the card where I used the Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper!!

I am thrilled to share my next card with you!! I feel in love with the “Angels of Peace” stamp set the moment I saw it. She is so lovely and delicate and these angels can be used for so many different occasions …

The sentiment “Sometimes angels are just good people with kind hearts”… is the second reason I had to have this stamp set. The water washed background of the Beauty of the Earth designer paper was the perfect background for the snowflake mask and the Sparkling Embossing Paste…. and the angel was meant to go with them.

I stamped my angel in Night of Navy and then gently used the Wink of Stella to add some some sparkle to her. I was VERY careful on the wings as I wanted them mostly white, and the wetness of the Stella will smear the Night of Navy ink. On the other hand … I used the Wink of Stella to pull some of the color out of the lines and into her dress to give it that soft blue look.

The greeting was also stamped in Night of Navy and then cut out using the Layering Circle Dies. I also cut a Night of Navy mat to coordinate with her dress and the card base. It all flows so nicely and completes the card.

This angle of the photo is to show you the beautiful texture on this card!! The sparkle in the snowflakes is accented by the Wink of Stella on our Angel. One of my favorite cards that I ahve made in a while!

I want to thank you for joining me today, and if you stopped by last night to watch me LIVE. I hope you join me for my Catalog Launch Party, especially this weekend as I share more demonstrations using the NEW products and Sale-a-bration items.

Have a beautiful day, and take good care ~

Peaceful Deer to Kick-Off the New Mini Catalog!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh WOW … It’s an exciting day today!! We are kicking off the New Aug.-Dec. Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration 2 … and I’m using the fabulous Peaceful Deer Bundle and the Peaceful Prints Designer Series paper from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog!

I also invite you to join me tonight for my Facebook LIVE … you know I’ll be working with some new products and a fun twist to our Embossing Paste! I go LIVE on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page at 6:30 pm.

I’m excited to share this card with you today … I have to say, it was hard to choose what suite/bundle I would use first. I think the Peaceful Deer is a good one …

First let me say … the greeting could easily be changed from Merry Christmas to Happy Birthday. I love stamp sets and paper that can be used for more than their proposed purpose. The greeting is embossed with white along with the snowflakes, both from the Peaceful Deer stamp set.

The deer was punched from the coordinating Deer Builder Punch from the Peaceful Prints Designer paper … this is a Sale-a-bration item and is FREE with a $50 purchase. The designer paper was designed to coordinate with the bundle … YIPPEE!!

My card base is Basic Black and Basic White for the mat behind the embossed black … there is another piece of white on the inside of course and a strip of this designer paper.

I popped up the greeting piece and my punched deer.

A simple card today … but you know I have so much more in store for you this week as we “Launch this catalog” and party all weekend!!
