Beautiful World

The World of Good Suite is not only great for masculine cards, but can be used for so many occasions.  I see using it for graduation, birthday, world travel, thank you and so much more.

I cut some of the Designer Series Paper to create my layer, added a piece of the new Early Espresso Ribbon, and cut out one of the globes using a piece of Misty Moonlight Card Stock and the second globe with a piece of Brass Foil.  The new adhesive sheets work great adhering the intricate globe piece to the card stock layer below it.


Bundle number for the stamp set and dies is #154091.  If you wish to purchase the whole suite that includes the stamp set, dies, ribbon, designer series paper, brass foil sheets, Antique Corners and Slides, Memories & More Card Pack and One World Paper Embossing Folder the number is #154140.

Blossoms and Blooms - Card 3


This is the third card I made using just the Blossoms and Blooms Stamp Set.  The colors used were Blackberry Bliss and Bumblebee.  This shows you how many different looks you can get using this bundle.  If you feel just like stamping and not using the coordinating dies you can still get a nice card that anyone would like to receive.

Blossoms in Bloom - Card 2


Here is the second card I made using the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set and coordinating Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  As you can see if you look at my previous post, both cards really take on a different look.  The one I posted the other day used the large bloom die that had more detail and was thicker, today's card uses the large thinner die.


 I stamped my large flowers with the coordinating stamp set and then cut the thin die and placed it over my image.  I used an Adhesive Sheet to adhere the cut die to my card, and they are really great to use when adhering thin dies like this.  I tied a piece of the new Vanilla Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack to my card to add a bit more embellishment.

Note - this ribbon is really easy to die to make it any color you want.  Just use a Sponge Dauber or Stampin' Sponge dipped in your favorite color ink and you can change this pretty vanilla ribbon to any color.

I will post my third card sometime later this week once again showing the versatility of this stamp set and die combo.

Blossoms in Bloom


For my Open House, I made three different style of cards showcasing the Bloosoms in Bloom Stamp Set and coordinating Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  Here is the first one.

I used a piece of new Just Jade Card Stock for my layer, and then cut the fuller flower die with another piece of Just Jade and placed it over my card front.  Using the new Adhesive Sheets made it really easy to adhere to my card.  I tied a piece of new Bumblebee Ribbon to my card and added my Get Well Sentiment to the top. 

Tomorrow I will post my second card showing the versatility of this set.  Remember you can purchase the stamp set and die in bundle to save 10%.  Number for the bundle is #154123.

Jar of Flowers Bundle


The Jar of Flowers Bundle includes the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set and coordinating Jar Punch.  I used just the stamp set for my card, showcasing that you don't need to use the punch to still make a beautiful card.  I used the punch to make the gift tag instead, and both are great, and one of my favorite purchases from the new Annual Catalog.

The Designer Series Paper used in my card is from the Forever Greenery Pack, and on my card I used some of the new Misty Moonlight Baker's Twine for the top of my jar.  This made a nice transition from the jar to the flowers.  The twine is part of the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.  

The ribbon used at the top of my gift tag is the new bumblebee 1/4" Gingham Ribbon, and some of the embellishments inside the jar include the new Flowers for Every Season Gems.  I also added additional embellishments that I had on hand to fill the jar up a bit more, and colored in my flowers on both the card and the tag using coordinating Stampin' Blends. 

If you are still in need of a new Annual Catalog, e-mail me or leave a comment below and I will be happy to get one to you.
