Bloomin' Heart background trick

Pin It
I thought this trick was brilliant... In just a couple of days you will be able to buy a similar die called the Detailed Floral Thinlit.  But until you get point on your long wishlist, you can try this technique.  All you need is the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit. Just cut it and piece it together as your background!

Bold Butterfly Cards

Who doesn't love a butterfly card. Here are a couple of our favorites from Dawn Bourgette and Becky Roberts.  I love the dimension that the framelits give.

Sprinkles on Top

Pin It
Everything's better with sprinkles on top.  Even cards! Enjoy these cute little donuts while they last. Our new catalog has a fun framelit to do slider cards with. Carla Moosman entered this card into our card contest at our Back Stage event. We loved it!

Party with Cake cards

Get this washi tape and DSP before it's gone! The stamp set and die will be available in the 2016-2017 catalog though. Such a great technique with the washi tape on the hat.  I need to remember that one. Lisa Fast made the Hip Hip Hooray card!

Remarkable You card

Pin It
There are many things I like about this card that we got from Karen Reed.  I love the ombrey effect on the flower. I also love how the flower stands out so much with the black and the corrigated paper (sad that paper is leaving us, you have a couple of weeks left to stock up on that.)
I will also miss the Curvy Corner Trio punch, that is so clever how they made that little "for you" piece. Yeah!! that flower is sticking with us another year though.

Bear Hugs cards

Pin It
Here are the bears... They are as cute as they can be;) There were lots of great ideas for the bears at On Stage. We were inspired by Dawn Griffith's fish and bear card so we made our own version. Tonja Mast made the birthday bear card.

Rose Wonder- part 2

Pin It

Don't you love this die? I'm so happy it is in the new catalog! There are so many things you can do with it too. The red rose is a little time consuming but so stunning.  We picked up all these ideas at On Stage just a little while ago. Connie Ingram made one of them.

Sunburst Salutations

Pin It

Love the stripes peeking through the Sunshine on this one.
The ombray effect in the center is super cute.
The subtleness of the sunburst is perfect behind those balloons.
And there is nothing subtle about these sunbursts. So bright and cheery!

Such a fun die to play with.  I have to say I took me a little while to buy this die because of the price, but once I started playing with it, I couldn't stop. Diane Oliphant made the first card, the rest were inspired by cards on display at On Stage a couple of weeks ago. Those fun sentiments are in the new Catalog!
