Tradition? Texture? Dimension? All Here!

Today's card has a bit of the traditional, plus texture, and one of my personal faves ... dimension! 


Even though there are bazillions of ways to share a greeting for February 14 ... there's always the traditional "Happy Valentine's Day" being said or written.  I love this pretty font, too!


Texture fans will enjoy the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions embossing folder.  It's from the new Occasions catalog, along with the 27-piece Sealed with Love stamp featured today.  Now the stamp set can purchased singly, or it's also available in a bundle!  The coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies include 14 fun pieces ... lots of stamps + dies in this combo.


Inside there's room for a combo of two stamps alongside the Rose Red contrast strip down the side.  I love the way the open hearts in the border die allow the Rose Red to peek through to the front.

Need your own copy of the Occasions catalog?  Please contact me! In the meantime, feel free to download it from the right side column here on my blog.  

This is one of the stamping projects I'll share with my team this weekend as we gather for some stamping joys.   Hope you find some ink + paper time as well!

Hey! You're a Good Egg!

Hey there, stampy friends!   I'd like to introduce you to one of the cutest chicks in my stampin' collection.  She's one of the delightful chickens in the new Hey, Chick stamp set.  Psssst!  This stamp set is in one of the FREE items available during Sale-A-Bration 2017!


The card sketch is from this week's Fab Friday Challenge, FabFri103, #FabFri103 .  Isn't it perfect for the simple chicken yard setting for this cute hen?

Stamping History Blah-Blah:  Before we started using patterned papers in routine card making, many stampers like myself were so happy when card-front-sized background stamps became available.  This card reminded me of my earlier stamper-self ... loving my little collection of background stamps and using them on a majority of my creations at the time.  Were you stamping "back" then?   I've featured the Hardwood background stamp for the feeling of hen's chicken house today.  How did I color Mama Hen?  With the new Watercolor Pencils found on pg. 24 of the new Occasions catalog!

After the "Merry" ... ...

comes the Happy New Year!   ... ...  and then, it's time for


the brand new Occasions Catalog .. and .. 
Sale-A-Bration!


So direct from the goodies within the new 2017 Occasions Catalog, I have my first creation featuring the new Sealed with Love Bundle!


~
The Sealed with Love Bundle includes 27 stamps in a fun variety of 16 images and 11 sentiments.  Plus, there are 14 coordinating Love Notes Framelits dies!  This bundle is filled with possibilities that will serve you long past Valentines Day.  Sweethearts, spouses, family members, special friends, and more will love receiving delights crafted with these goodies. 

Shown is just 1 of the 2 bitty little envelopes and fitted teeny notes made from the Love Notes Framelits.  I practically squealed out loud when I first began to play with this sweet bundle!

There's yet another image that fits at the top of this tiny insert for the bitty envelope!  I'll save that for another project.  Honestly, it seems to me that the concept designers for this set went above 'n beyond with creative thinking to provide lots of possibilities.  I used the Stitched Framelits for adding the sentiment and white layer for mounting the bitty envie.   Easy and fun all at the same time.

Remember ... Sale-A-Bration starts today, so every $50 purchase qualifies you for a FREE choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  And, there's no limit on how many SAB items you can collect.
