So, the other day I posted two tags and asked which one people liked better. You can see the tags here. I loved reading the comments on Facebook and think the snowflake tag edged out the star tag because there was less space between the center star and the frame. I decided to rework it a bit and used some glimmer paper with the next smaller star framelit to make a glittery star for the center.
I tried it with red like the other tags, but it just looked too much like the Fourth of July so I changed it out to silver. I liked the silver much better.
If I add this tag into the mix, what do you think?
So, I have seen the sneak peek of the Holiday catalog and I really like it. In fact, I have posted a lot of previews over on my Facebook page and they seemed to be very well liked. Today I am comparing a tag made with the outgoing Festive Flurry bundle and the incoming Bright & Beautiful stars.
Which do you like better? Are you a snowflake or a star person? The snowflake tag is made from the carry over Festive Flurry set that will only be available through August 27th. The star tag is made with the Bright & Beautiful set (coming soon) set that will be in the new Holiday Catalog.
You can download the list of holiday Carryover products available through August 27th. I have noticed that the new Holiday catalog does not have a Poinsettia set nor is there a set with various snowflakes so if you are interested in these images, be sure to check out the list of carryover list.
Leave a comment and let me know which tag you like better! Have a great weekend.
I am so excited about making the Hot Glue Faux Epoxy Dots I learned about at convention and have so many ways to use them.
I have made a video below showing you exactly how I made these Epoxy “Hot Glue” Dots and am also sharing a masculine card I have made using the Traveler stamp set and World Map. You will see how easy it is to make the dots and color them with your Blendabilities.
I used the Alphabet Rotary stamp to make the sentiment and I just love how the “rotary” look is so great with the ship and vintage items. With the Alphabet Rotary stamp you can make your greeting anything you want. The “hello” is cut out with one of the Bitty Banner Framelits (on sale this week). I can’t wait to use this card.
See the “How To” Crafting video for the Faux Epoxy Dots:
I love the Emboss Resist Technique because it is so easy and has such great results. I used the emboss resist to get the “Congrats” from the Bravo stamp set to pop out from the strokes of color.
To control the color of the sentiment or the image you want to show through, all you have to do is change the color of your card stock. I did this clear embossing over Whisper White card stock so it came through as white. You could always use a different color card stock if you do not want your pop through image white.
Check out the video below to see how I made this card and did the Emboss Resist technique.
Do you have the Bitty Banners Framelits? That is one of my go to Framelit Dies set and it is on sale this week. I think I will have to try out one of the Celebration Basics Kit because it would be a great quick decoration for a party. See all the Weekly Deals Here.
I was looking through my sentiments and decided I wanted to make a card that would brighten someone’s day and use the Kinda Eclectic set we received at convention. It has been kind of quiet around here because I was attending Stampin’ Up!’s convention and just returned last night.
I think the starburst image gives kind of an optimistic feeling, like the sun coming up. You just cannot go wrong with butterflies and these butterflies coordinate with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches so they are easy to punch out. I based this card on a fun sketch.
I recently asked what kinds of cards people like to send over on my Facebook Business Page and the most popular answer was “Just Because” cards and I think this one would qualify. Wouldn’t it be fun to receive a card to brighten your day? You can find the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in my Online Store.
