Today’s card is a subtle fall bouquet with a surprisingly beautiful bow! It’s another sneak peek from the new Holiday Catalog that goes live on September 5th. Included in this catalog are some very gorgeous fall items that you will love, like the Wishing You Well stamp set featured on today’s card.
I made a video for you showing lots of the new products from the catalog!
So what do you think of all those great goodies? Wonderful, right? Well definitely start your wish list 🙂
Now back to today’s card…isn’t this bow amazing? This stamp set is one of the new DistINKtive sets. The stamps are made in a special way; and you can see that in the bow here. I’ve never seen a stamped bow like this one, have you? It’s a showstopper!!
The colors used on this card are what I call an “array of fall.” Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry, and Crumb Cake. You can’t find a better combination for a fall look.
This card is perfect for a sweet hello to a friend. One thing card making does for me is cause me to send more cards. I love to send and receive cards, but sometimes I get so busy. Let’s not allow ourselves to get so busy that we can’t take the time to send a note to a friend!
Thank you for stopping by today! I’d love to hear what you think about this card and the video. Click below to leave me a comment!
You may not realize it, but today’s card uses the same bundle as yesterday’s card! It’s true ~ the First Frost Bundle is SO versatile! For this card I used the same stamp set and die set, but added some gorgeous Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper! This paper is seriously beautiful. I’m using it on everything I can find!
Today I want to show you two amazing dies from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits. There are two label-type rectangular dies and one nests inside of the other. You can use only the thick die to produce a pretty label. But when you add the nesting die it produces a loose, thin frame piece. For my card, I placed the thin frame on the card and used tiny dots of multipurpose glue to adhere it. Then I stamped the sentiment on the large label piece and adhered it just inside the glued frame. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment up, allowing you to really see the frame piece. I think it looks pretty cool!
Then I cut berry branches from Tranquil Tide card stock using the die. I slipped the ends of these branches under the sentiment piece, adhering with a bit of glue underneath the label. The contrasting color looks great!
For the envelope I stamped a berry branch from the stamp set. Stamping the envelope gives you a nice preview of the card you will find inside!
As you can tell, I’m loving this bundle. Remember, these products aren’t available to purchase until September 5. But I hope you’ll put this bundle at the top of your wish list!
Thank you for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for another fun sneak peek!
Here it is ~ the first Sneak Peek of the new 2018 Holiday Catalog!! And all this week you’ll be seeing new products! Yippee! I’m starting off with my FAVORITE bundle in the catalog, the First Frost Bundle! The Catalog goes live on September 5th, so start making your list as you see my sneak peeks 🙂
This set is SO pretty. Look at these flowers! Here I’ve stamped them in Flirty Flamingo ink, and the way the stamp is made gives the light and dark shading. The vine stamp has similar shading. Pretty, right?
The Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies coordinate beautifully with the stamp set. There are 11 dies in this set.
This card just barely scratches the surface of what can be done with this bundle. I will be showing you more in the upcoming weeks!

Look at this cute typewriter! I love typewriters…I’ve spent years typing on typewriters! 🙂 And, this one is so cute, isn’t it? It’s adorably retro and has lots of messages to put on the paper!
This stamp set is called P.S. You’re the Best and, of course, that’s one of the sentiments! There are 8 different phrases you can put on the paper coming out of the typewriter.
To create this card I started with a Whisper White card stock base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4.” I added a 5-1/4″ x 4″ panel of Shimmery White card stock washed with a Pool Party watercolor wash. The typewriter was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White card stock and fussy cut. The sentiment was stamped with Melon Mambo ink and then the typewriter was placed over the watercolor wash with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Glitter Enamel Dots and some Rose Metallic Thread finished it off.
