Here’s a Christmas card with the front made solely from Framelit Dies and some Gold Sequin Trim. What do you think?
Now the Ornaments framelits come in a bundle with the coordinating stamp set called Embellished Ornaments. You can purchase them separately for a total of A$100 or bundle and save 15%. Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set and Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies – Wood-mount #140856 for A$85.00 or Clear-mount #140857 A$73.00. So buying them as a bundle is a great saving. These are available from the Holiday Catalogue on 1st September. If you haven’t got your copy yet and you live in Australia, please contact me and I’d be happy to send you one.
You can see from this view how the elements give the card texture and create interest.
I also used the Curvy Corner Trio Punch #139683 A$35.00. This is a versatile punch which cuts 3 different shapes: 2 corners and ribbon slide. I’ve used one of the corner punches on this card.
I also used the Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies #139658 A$45.00 which is a set of 8 dies with the largest image: 11.1 x 7.9 cm. Use with Big Shot, Standard Cutting Pads and Precision Base Plate.
The new Precision Base Plate #139684 A$41.00. This steel plate delivers improved performance with more detailed dies, giving you extra fine cuts. I used it with this card and was amazed at how easy the cut was and how much more easily the fine pieces fell out of the element cut.
I used the holly stamp from the Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set to embellish the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope.
I shared a Minions Square Pillow Box the other day, so decided today to share a Festive one.
To build the Poinsettia I used the new Festive Flower Punch from the Holiday Catalogue due out on 1st September. The punch co-ordinates with the Reason for the Season Stamp Set and I worked out a great way to stamp the images and then punch them out without too much trouble. I’ll share the tip in a video late this month.
You can buy the 2 products in a bundle which saves you 15% – Reason for the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and Festive Flower Builder Punch #140847 A$57.75 instead of A$68 if you buy separately.
I’ve also used Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper #139588 A$22.75 for 2 each of 5 double-sided designs printed with metallic ink on one side; 1 each of 2 single-sided gold foil designs. 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Acid free, lignin free. Basic Black, gold, Whisper White
So some great new products coming in the Holiday Catalogue and you can start ordering on 1st September.
Here’s a closer look at the Poinsettia:
I’ve used the Square Pillow Box Framelit again here and made a Belly Band from real Red and built the Poinsettia with Real Red, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight card. I’ve stamped each leaf and petal using Reason For The Season stamp set in Read Red and Garden Green.
Who doesn’t like Minions? They’re so cute. Last school holidays I took my step Grandson to see the Minions Movie. He laughed so much and we both had a great time. My youngest Grandson chose a Minions cover for his mother’s mobile phone. So they’re everywhere.
We have a new framelit in the Holiday Catalogue starting 1st September. Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies #139657 A$54.00 and there are 8 dies. Finished box: 15.1 x 11.7 cm. Use with Big Shot and Standard Cutting.
Now I’ve only used the Square Pillow Box Framelit to make this little fellow, plus some punches. There are 7 more framelits in the set which I haven’t used today.
I made a belly band from some Basic Black cut to 3/4″ and then used Circle Punches for the eyes and our White Signo pen.
These pillow boxes will be serious fun and a must to purchase from the catalogue when it starts. Just imagine all the different ones you can create and use them for a myriad of occasions. Product List
I shared a soccer card the other day so thought I’d better do a card for the girls. This card is quite simple and features some embossing in White Embossing powder. I’ve stamped the inside and the envelope, using the same stamp but Melon Mambo ink.
Same card but made landscape and you can see the stamping both inside the card and on the envelope. I’ve stamped the sentiment first and then punched it out using the Scallop Oval Punch. The Whisper White Organza ribbon just adds some texture and dimension to it.
I seem to make lots of adult cards and not too many cards suitable for boys or teenagers. I saw in another group how someone had made a similar card and you can find many on Pinterest. You could make these for any round ball games really – baseball, basketball; dodgeball; football; teeball etc.
To make this football (soccer) all you need to do is use your Big Shot and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Folder and run your card stock through. Then take your Circles Framelits Dies and choose the size you want, and draw a light pencil line around the outside of the framelit on the right side of the card. Using Basic Black, run it through your Big Shot with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and this will give you the little black hexagons you need for the ball. Don’t throw the frame you have just cut, out as you can use it for some other project. Now adhere some of the black hexagons to the inside of the circle, giving you a soccer ball effect.
Now, place your piece back into your Big Shot with the Circle Framelit die and run through, thus cutting your ball out.
Use some fringe scissors to cut your grass. I just pulled a couple of ‘blades’ out here and there. Adhere to the card front and then add the ball ensuring some of the blades of grass stick up over the ball.
This is a great card for someone who is keen on their sport.

It can be assumed that most of the cards you see on this blog have been CASED. (Copy and Share Everything) I copy a lot. I copy from friends, (thank you friends!), I copy from things I see on blogs and websites. (thank you, talented, creative people!) and I copy from books. I collect ideas from lots of blogs and websites and I am not very good at keeping track of where that idea came from. I sometimes change the layout, colors or stamp, but sometimes the card is copied exactly. Please know that if I have copied (and shared) an idea that was orginally yours I do thank you for your original creation and the fact that you shared it on the web. Hopefully you will consider it a compliment and a sincere form of flattery.
