Delightful Doilies

Happy Monday! Can you believe it's already the last Monday of February? It sure is a blustery one here in Southern Ontario! We've been under a wind warning since early Sunday and it is still howling! I shudder to think how many shingles we'll lose off our roof by the time this is all over. I have to say I will be SO glad when this winter is finally's been brutal weather-wise!

I kept busy in my studio this weekend prepping for my Occasions Card Buffet coming up this week. I finally had a chance to ink up my Dear Doily stamp set and quickly fell in love! So much so that I've made it my Product of the Week this week!

Check out this sweet wedding/anniversary card I made...

I used a piece of Painted Seasons DSP (STILL loving that stuff!) and stamped directly on it with several images from the Dear Doily stamp set. I love stamping on adds so much additional texture and colour. My colour scheme was Sahara Sand, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White. I love this soft and delicate.

The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set from the Annual Catalogue...I often forget that set has such beautiful sentiments and lovely fonts. I also pulled out some Powder Pink ruffled ribbon...more Annual Catty goodness. See that pretty white die-cut peeking out from behind the sentiment? I cut it using the Doily Builder Thinlits...they are sooooo pretty!

On the inside I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped more doily images and another sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I'll be featuring this card and two others in my Tuesday Live @ Five video this week over on Facebook. If you miss the live broadcast you can check it out here by clicking the Video Tutorials tab at the top of this page. 

Before I go, just a reminder that tomorrow is the deadline to place your order for my Happy Tails Online Class. You can check out all of the details HERE.

Have a great week...thanks for stopping by!

Painted Seasons Thank You

Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Ours isn't over yet here, as today is our Family Day Holiday. It is so nice to have an extra day off work to enjoy time with loved ones!

This week I am featuring one of the brand-new Sale-a-bration offerings as my Product of the Week...

I can't say enough about how utterly beautiful the images and patterns in this bundle are! I also can't seem to stop playing with them ;)

Here is a project I'll be featuring on this week's episode of Tuesday Live @ Five...

I think the best thing about this bundle is it's versatility. The paper has detailed hand-painted images on one side, but the other has simple geometric patterns liked the one I used on this card. This means there is absolutely no limit to the possibilities with this DSP pack! The stamped images are in the beautiful DistINKtive style, making it super-easy to get beautifully shaded images with just one stamp. Now, did you notice that I cut out several of the images? I could have fussy-cut them, but I used a soon-to-be-released coordinating set of framelits! That's right! Starting March 1st you can purchase framelits that cut all of the beautiful images in the stamp set. Talk about fabulous! Buy the dies and get the coordinating stamps and paper FREE!!

Now, don't get me wrong, the stamped images are beautiful on their own, but having the ability to cut them out and layer them takes this set from wow to HOLY COW!

As I mentioned above, I'll be featuring this card and two others on my Tuesday Live @ Five episode over on Facebook tomorrow. If you miss the live broadcast, you can always find the recording here but clicking the Video Tutorials tab above or on my YouTube channel.

Hope to see you tomorrow...have a great week!

Happy Friday! It's a extra-special day...not only is it the start of a long weekend AND our monthly Stamping Symphony Blog Hop, but it is also the day that the Second Release Sale-a-bration items become available! Now THAT's something worth getting excited about! There are three FANTASTIC new items up for grabs FREE with a qualifying order...

All Adorned (Item #149728)

Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Item #149698)
FREE with a $60 order
Painted Seasons Bundle (includes stamp set and DSP pack)
(Item #150349)
FREE with a $120 order

I have to say all three of these new items are simply fabulous!! Today I am featuring the Painted Seasons Bundle and the Country Floral embossing folder. The DistINKtive images in the stamp set are absolutely gorgeous and the DSP is beyond stunning! Check this out...

I'm honestly not sure what I love more...the beautiful embossed Petal Pink background or the stunning floral DSP! Combined they make this simple card a stunner. The only stamping is the sentiment, which is from the Humming Along stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I added a hint of a flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove ink.

Now, did you catch the sneak peek of a new item coming in March?? I used the mew Story Label punch to create my sentiment label...this punch will be available to purchase in March...if you can't wait that long, it can be added to a Starter Kit right now...along with your choice of $225 worth of product for just $135...but I digress!

I added a doily, some pearls and Petal Pink Variegated Ribbon to pretty up this beauty even more.

On the inside, I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped a sentiment from the Part of My Story Sale-a-bration stamp set and more flowers using Grapefruit Grove and Petal Pink ink.

This simple but pretty design will be one of the offerings at my upcoming Occasions Card Buffet at the end of the month. Be sure to register if you are local to Cambridge and haven't yet done so!

Now, it's time to hop on over to Sandy's blog for more birthday card ideas...

Have a fantastic weekend...see you Monday!
