Whoo's Bringing Holiday Cheer?

These stamp images come from the Season's Tweetings Gift Bag Kit, featured in our Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide.  I combined them here with Pear, Lagoon and Daisy cardstocks for a bright and cheery non-traditional color palette.  

Some Bitty Sparkles for the mistletoe berries and our fabulous Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape pair up for great embellishments.  Aqua Dots are the perfect eyes!

October Stamp of the Month Art # 14

Art by Tina Dupin

 I wanted to show you these two cards together.  Both artists chose a Kraft and Ruby color scheme.  But Tina's card emphasizes the Kraft, while Shannon's card brings out the red.  Note how the difference in Baker's Twine color makes a difference with these . . . soft or bright.  Gotta love them both!

Here Comes Santa Claus .........

 Washi Tape . . . Zip Strip . . . more Washi Tape . . . Stamped images . . . More Washi Tape!
They all come from the Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide to make this fun card.

Here's an up-close look at Santa's "night sky" - I just added some Bitty Sparkles to the silvery Washi Tape to give the illusion of stars.

October Stamp of the Month Art # 13

Art by Julie Reynolds

I stamped this darling little bird image twice; once in Honey and once in Ruby.  Then by cutting and layering the Ruby wing, this bird comes alive!  A grey pearl added for the eye gives it a nice finish.  Our Washi Tape running down the right side of this card is so much fun to use.

October Stamp of the Month Art # 12

 Art by Debi Gardner

See the velvet-looking background here?  That's created simply by swiping a Ruby ink pad across Ruby cardstock.  It adds such a rich texture to this card.

What's New For The Holildays?

It's not enough that we have some lovely holiday items in our Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book . . . Now you can have even MORE selection with our "Holidays From the Heart" gift guide!  Papers, stamps, workshop kits, embellishments . . . gift bags, scrapbooking, cardmaking, papercrafting . . . And to top it off, there are even a few pages of "beyond Christmas" items!  New things for birthdays and every-day celebrations.

The comment I've been hearing over and over is,
"Oh, I even like them so much more when I see the things in person!" 

I was so disappointed when my order for these holiday products wasn't going to arrive until I was already gone for my Fall Retreat last Thursday . . . I had hoped to spend time playing with all the new things.  But my WONDERFUL husband drove my order all the way out and dropped them on the porch of our lodge before I was even up and about Friday morning.  FedEx doesn't have anything on Joe Reynolds!  So I did do some very fun creating, and will be posting a few of those things here in the next couple of days.  Stay tuned!

Art by Adeline Brill

Ornaments!  Simple paper layering here, and cut up the center of one piece, slide the matching piece in.  And use the border stamp to decorate simple paper rings for a chain of old-fashioned charm.

October Stamp of the Month Art # 3

Art by Krista Hershberger

At first glance, our ProPlayer paper pack appears perhaps to be only for boys, digital interests, etc.... But when you explore the flip sides of the patterned papers, you will discover the incredible versatility!  These reverse sides offer uses for just about any theme with which you might be working.  I LOVE that about this set!  The soft blue print here is one of those very patterns.
