Easel Card Calendars

Every November I enjoy making calendars for people. This year I chose to make easel cards with the calendars attached to the front. Super fun and easy to make using the Eden’s Garden Suite that is available for pre-purchase. The stamps and dies can be ordered now, but will also be available in the upcoming January to June 2022 mini catalog. The Ever Eden Cotton Paper, Specialty Designer Series Paper, and Garden Gems are only available now while supplies last. This suite is so beautiful!

Card Recipe
Stamp Set:  Eden’s Garden, Let’s Create Together (Demo set)
Cardstock:  Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Basic White
DSP:  Ever Eden Specialty
Ink:  Evening Evergreen
Lovelies:  Gilded Gems
Tools:  Scalloped Contour Dies

Bamboo Diorama

I decided to go with a super simple layout today because I wanted the Layering Diorama Dies to take center stage. They don’t coordinate with a specific stamp set, so it might not get as much love as I think it deserves. Hard to tell in the photo, but the DSP is glued onto the Soft Succulent layer then popped up on Dimensionals onto the Evening Evergreen base. The sentiment is also popped up with Dimensionals. Quick and easy card with a fun design!

Stamp Set:  Bamboo Beauty
Cardstock:  Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Basic White
DSP:  In the Wild
Ink:  Evening Evergreen
Lovelies:  Metallic Pearls
Tools:  Layering Diorama Dies

Happy Hello!

I am so sorry about my absence! Let’s dive right in – the 2021 January to June mini catalog is about be over and this is the time to grab those retiring items you just can’t live without…or take advantage of a bundle! For instance – this adorable card features the dies from the In Bloom bundle on page 45. You still have time to get it bundled for 10% off…but when the catalog ends, you’ll have to purchase them separately at regular price.

Hello to Upcoming New Products!

Oh my! The upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is perfect! There are so many awesome new products to choose from. It also showcases the new 2021-2023 In Colors beautifully! I love all five colors…but I think Pale Papaya is my favorite. Which is your favorite?

This card uses 3 other new ones plus a new stamp set that comes with a coordinating punch. I ended up going with Blends on this one and I didn’t need to incorporate the punch with the larger image I chose. I jazzed it up with the beautiful new In Color Jewels,too. I can’t wait for the new Annual Catalog to release to customers on May 4, 2021 so you can see all the super fun goodness, too!

Seaside Spray Essence CASE

Hello, everyone! The Last Chance retiring list for the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog has been released. Remember that these are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! You can view it here:

I took a play from yesterday’s playbook and decided to find another card to CASE from the Annual Catalog. I leafed through a few times, but couldn’t find anything that inspired me. So, I decided to go back a year and look through the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I found a sample that was so soft and pretty all the way in the back by the host sets on page 205. I loved the layout and use of the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder* and Braided Linen Trim. I substituted the sentiment from Floral Essence*, the flower from Framed For You* and the leaves from Very Versailles. If you’d like to order any of these products, including the retiring* ones, the ordering info is below.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: Floral Essence*, Framed For You*, Very Versailles
Cardstock: Seaside Spray*, Basic White
Ink: Mint Macaron, Petal Pink, Seaside Spray
Lovelies: Champagne Rhinestones, Braided Linen Trim
Tools: Scripty 3D Embossing Folder*
*Retiring Product

My Meadow Catalog CASE

Hello, everyone! The Last Chance retiring list for the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog has been released. Remember that these are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! You can view it here:

I needed to make thank you cards today for some people that recently ordered from me. I decided I wanted to use retiring products, so I leafed through the catalog and happened upon a sweet sample on page 56 that uses 2 retiring stamp sets – My Meadow and Rustic Retreat. Shame on me for not having inked up My Meadow before…it was super fun to stamp with! Below is a photo of the card and envelope as well as a second photo showing my card next to the sample I CASE’d (Copy And Share Everything). This card also takes advantage of the sweet Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder on both the background piece and under the sentiment. If you have even a smidgen of thought that you may want either of these sets, don’t wait to order! See ordering info below.

Card Recipe
Stamp Sets: My Meadow*, Rustic Retreat*
Cardstock: Old Olive, Rococo Rose*, Basic White
Ink: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Pool Party, Rococo Rose*, Soft Suede

Saying Goodbye to Pretty Peacock

I am super excited to find out what the upcoming 2021-2023 In Colors will be…but I will certainly miss the gorgeous retiring Pretty Peacock. I decided to dust off the trusty Butterfly Gala Punch and coordinating Butterfly Gala stamp set. I haven’t used them in quite a while. I think they work beautifully with the bold patterns of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.

Card Base is 5 ½” x 4 ¼” and the DSP is cut at 9 1/8” x 5 ¼”, scored at 1 7/8” and 5 7/8”.

Card Recipe
Stamp Set:  Butterfly Gala
Cardstock:  Pretty Peacock, Whisper White*
Designer Series Paper:  Forever Greenery
Ink:  Garden Green, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce, Memento Tuxedo Black
Lovelies:  Wink of Stella
Tools:  Butterfly Duet Punch, Layering Ovals Dies,
*Retired Product
