Yes, you're seeing it right, I made a Christmas card!!! I'm playing along in a color challenge to use at least 2 colors from the regals family. The reds and greens immediately hit me so Christmas it is!! My colors are Real red and Old olive with two neutrals, Whisper white and Soft suede. My card makes use of the eclipse technique, something I love but, believe it or not, have never done before today!!

I would love to share the eclipse and other techniques using the Large Letter Framelits so purchase them from my store and I will send you supplies and tutorials to make several cards of your own!! How fun!!!

Hello Friend

Are you shocked to see a card made by me using purple? Well you should be!!!! Hahaha!! I am so not a fan of purple, I have to force myself to use it! The colors Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam pair so well together, I must admit. And I used a new stamp set, Healing Hugs. The design is so realistic. And as if using purple isn't far out of my comfort zone, I actually did some quick fussy cutting too of the flower and leaves!! I don't normally fussy cut...yes, I'm that lazy!!! Hahaha!

Card base - Soft Sea Foam - 11 x 4 1/4 scored at 5 1/2
Highland Heather layer - 5 1/4 x 4
Whisper White layer - 5 x 3 3/4

Hey Friend

I can't believe it took me this long to use this bundle, Lilypad Lake. From the moment I saw this stamp and die set I knew I had to have it! A challenge came up to make a water themed card and I knew this would be the perfect one to use!! The oval is the largest of the Stitched Shape Framelits. I sponged on some Pool Party and Coastal Cabana inks for a background then stamp the "waves" twice in Bermuda Bay. The egret and water lily were stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and colored with Stampin' Blends. The papers are from the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 pack -- I put some of the scraps to good use!!   

Speaking of pattern paper, the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE sale is still going strong. If you're a paper hoarder like me, now's your time to stock up on some beautiful papers!! You can find all the papers included in this promotion HERE.
