I love our new embossing paste and I wanted to show you another card used with it.  This set is also from the Holiday catalog, promise this is the last one for a while. It is called “Night in Bethlehem.”  This is a dynamic set and cannot wait to use it with different foils.  I also used the stitched shaped framelits for the sentiment.

I know, it is only August, but the sets are so awesome, I can’t wait to start using them.  Isn’t this a great card if you live here near the coast?  This is another set from the Holiday catalog, called “Beachy Little Christmas!”  I love it and I will be using this a lot this year.

I had to add this Halloween card to because it was so much fun to make.  You are going to love using the new spooky stamps from the Holiday Catalog (HC) soon to be released in September.  The name of this set is Spooky Cat.  Oh!, and it comes with the cutest cat and matching punch if you bundle.  Love it!

ON this card I used our new embossing paste.  I dyed it with soft sky reinker and used an old water stencil from my journaling supplies.  The stamp set I used is, Magical Mermaid, page 172, from the AC.  I love this set.  In addition, I used the birds from the stamp set, High Tide, page 140.  I love this paste because it dries so quickly.  Sand is done with crumb cake and layered on Soft Sky card stock.

This set is so awesome!  You can find this set, Coffee Cafe’ on page 31 of the AC.  It has matching dies, Coffee Cups Framelits, page 213, matching DSP, Coffee Break, page188, Corrugated Elements, page 196.  It also has a Cardstock pack that matches all the colors in the DSP.

The best part: You can bundle the set and dies and receive a 10% discount.  This is going to be a fantastic item for the Holidays.  I can see this being used for SB gift cards, etc.  The coffee splatter is made with our new Embossing Paste, page 201.  I dyed the paste with Soft Suede ink.  The stencil, however, is not SU.   It is Tim Holz and I have had it a long time for use in my Art journals.

Card stock used is Very Vanilla over Soft Suede and based on Crumb Cake.

We all rec’d this set FREE at the OnStage in Savannah Georgia.  It was so much fun and I couldn’t wait to get home to start playing with this set and some of the embellishments.  The set, Wood Words, page 159 of the AC can be purchased with matching dies, Wood Crate framelits, page 212.  You get 10% off if you bundle them.  I used copper foil on this card and love the way it turned out.  In addition, I used the stitched Shaped framelits, page 214.  The ribbon, Copper Trim, can be found on page 199.  I stretched the ribbon and layered it behind the images.  I also used the copper metalic thread, 198 in back of the sentiment.  The back ground is embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, page 210.

This set can be found on page 147 of the AC.  I used Sweet Sugarplum on the flowers and Pacific Point on the chair, Soft Suede on the sentiment.  I love this set it is so versatile.  You can see several samples of this set on the internet or even Pinterest.  I added Wink of Stella (tinted with ink refill & alcohol) on the flowers and then a slight splatter over the front of the card.  It does have matching dies (Seasonal Layers), page 216, and you can get both of these items as a bundle and save %10.  Seasonal Layers contains 17 dies and the possibilities are endless with this combination.

I am so glad that they carried over this set, High Tide, page 25 of the OC.  It is one of my favs.  Here I used it with the DSP, By the Shore, page 173 AC.  This is a very versatile set because it not only has wonderful images, but it has terrific sentiments.  Of course, living here by the coast, this set is very special to me.  I will get a lot of use out of this set.

I really love this incolor and will be sorry to see it go.  But we do have some beautiful new incolors to replace the outgoing ones.  Certainly makes it interesting every year.  Fortunately there were no changes to our core colors this year.
I used a mint macaron wash for the background on whisper White card stock and die cut the flowers and leaves with the Stylist Stems Framelits dies on page 42 of the OC.  I used the SAB glimmer paper in addition to the Mint macaron sheer ribbon found on page 178 in the AC.

I am really disappointed that this set, page 48 of the OC is retiring.  As far as I know, the Build it framelits dies have already been sold out.  Since this is such an awesome masculine set and it went over so well with just about all of our customers around the world, maybe SU will think of designing another set with matching dies in the future.  I am hoping that maybe they will decide to come back with this set.  Wouldn’t that be nice.  Wishful thinking!
Colors I used were Soft Suede, Smokey Slate and Crumb cake.  I added the Urban Underground Embellishments on page 47.

This was created with the stamp set Dragofly Dreams, page 26 in the OC.  I used black embossing powder and tempting turouoise ink.  I used the Metalic enamel shapes, page 177 of the AC.  One really great set because of the fantastic sentiments and will be very versatile because of it.  In addition, it has its own diecuts, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits on the same page and can be purchased as a bundle with a 10% discount.  This set will be held over, along with the thinlits to the new annual catalog.  However, the bundled discount will not be available after May 31st.

This card was so much fun to create.  It is not hard to do at all if you have the right tools.  Right now you can get these Balloon pop-up Thinlits Dies, Page 5 of the OC to make this card.  I used the Party Animal DSP on same page.  I used the embossing Folder, Celebrations Duo found on page 40 in the OC and the sentiment inside from DragonFly Dreams, page 26.

Ok, I am obsessed with this stamp set, Nailed it, page 48, oc.  I love the fact that there are die cuts that go with these stamps and I think I have made at least 5 or 6 different cards with them so far.  The possibilities are endless.  What I love about this set are all the embellishments, washi tape and DSP that you can use with it.  These are all listed on page 47 along with the lovely embossing folder, Hexagons Dynamic Textured impressions.  In addition, another stamp set in this same catalog, Urban District can also be combined to make dozens of masculine cards for Dad or the men in your life.  Save 10% by buying the bundle.

I just rec’d this set and I really hesitated if I should order it or not.  So glad that I decided to get it.  It is very versatile and the images are really great.  You can find this on page 34 of the OC.  When you live on the coast this set can be very useful.  The DSP that I used in the background is from By the Shore, page 173 of the AC.  I used the sentiment and the birds from the set, High Tide, page 25 in the OC.

This is a little different take on the set, Easter Message, page 19 OC.  I used Always Artichoke, Wisteria Wonder, and crumb cake inks.  Card stock is Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and base card is Thick Whisper White.
If you have not tried our heavy Whisper White card stock, you are missing a wonderful card base.  It is the best! Sold on page 175 of the AC

This card was created using the SAB set, Avant Garden, page 5 of the SAB catalog.  I cased this card from Sandi McIver and thank you Sandi for the inspiration.  This technique is called “Black Magic” and I really love it.  You first stamp the images in craft white ink.  Once it is dry I added our White watercolor pencil and then added Melon Mambo, Dafodil Delight, and Old Olive pencils, page 24, OC.  I outlined each image with a white gel pen.

I cased this card from a You Tube video a while back and now I cannot find the name of the person who created it.  If any of you out there know who I owe this inspiration to, please let me know so I can give her credit.
Both the dies and stamp set can be purchased together to save a 10% discount.  I used silver foil, Island Indigo, and Whisper White Card stock.  In addition, I used A little Foxy DSP, page 174 in the AC.  The embellishments, Urban Underground, page 47, are from the OC.  This is the coolest bundle, I love everything that goes with it.  No problem making masculine cards with this set.

This has got to be one of my favs in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  I used the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing folder found on page 47 of the OC for the background by brayering the inside of the EF in Delightful Dijon ink.  I used the Stitched layering oval dies for the images and sentiment.  Whisper white CS and Delightful Dijon finished off the card.
