More of my Stampin' Up "favourites"  (I have so many of them)!!. Today's card features the delicious Flocked Window Sheet (acetate) from the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Paper set. Although it has a festive name, all the papers, and the flocked acetate, could be used for many occasions, as they are not too Christmassy - but they are gorgeous!

I have also used another new Favourite combination - the Edgelits Adorning Accents die and the matching Edgelits Accents embossing folder.
The flocked acetate was attached underneath the curved layer then attached onto the base card.
The sentiment is the smallest of the Apothecary Art images, stamped with Early Espresso ink, and cut out with the smallest die from the Framelits Labels Collection set.
Plus some gorgeous Cherry Cobbler Tulle ribbon  - yes another favourite!
(The papers and Tulle Ribbon can be found on page 4 of the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue.)
Please contact me if you have any SU queries, or if you wish to place an order.
Happy Crafting ~

 Just popping by to share a card using the  Ex-Libris stamp.  
 (Page 128 - Autumn/Winter catalogue). 
This gorgeous (and versatile) vintage image is large enough to create a beautiful card front, and the design incorporates a blank cartouche for your sentiment. 
I stamped the cartouche a second time, cut it out and layered with foam dots to give a little dimension. 

Other SU items used:- 
Old Olive ink pad, clear embossing powder, Curly Cute sentiment, Bird Builder punch (leaves)
and the sensational Champagne Glimmer Paper.

I am entering my card into Lady Anne's Challenges - Anything Goes, (+ must have a stamped image - digi or rubber).
 Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes.

Just popping by to share my version of the gorgeous Christmas Ornament featured on the front cover of the Autumn/Winter SU Catalogue - not quite as good, I have to admit, but I am happy with the result! 
The items used are the Ornament Keepsake stamp set and the matching Framelits Die set. 

 Inks used - Old Olive and Real Red. Cherry Cobbler Tulle Ribbon (love it!)
An Antique Brad and a Pearl on the central rosette, which was scored on the Simply Scored score-board, which makes the job so easy.

Thank you for visiting ~

Apothecary Christmas!

I tried to resist, but it was futile! 
I just love the Apothecary Art stamps and  together with  the Framelits Labels dies, they make an awesome combination.
I decided to create an "alternative" Christmas card with the Roses wreath stamp, and used the
Christmas  sentiment from the Curly Cute set.  
The flowers are coloured with watercolour pencils and a little depth was added with  
Stampin' Write marker pens in Gumball Green and Primrose Petals
More of my gorgeous Cherry Cobbler tulle ribbon to finish - this ribbon is soooooo
versatile - you can pull it, twist it, tie it, fluff it - you get the idea!

The stamp set can be found  in the new main Catalogue on page 102, Framelits dies on page 191.
Tulle Ribbon - page 4 of the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
If you would like to order  SU products, I would be happy to hear from you.

Just popping by to share a very easy to make Christmas card - the design and colour palette are quite simple, but the tulle ribbon adds just that little touch of luxury!
