Hi and welcome friends,
The Timeless Textures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514) is one of my favourites and you can make beautiful backgrounds using a variety of the images.
The inks I have used are Crumb Cake (#126975), Soft Suede (#126978), and Night Of Navy (#126970). I have also used VersaMark (#102283) and Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#141636) for the sentiment and the flourish in the middle of the card. The sentiments are from the Background Bits stamp set (#c144029, #w144026) which is one of the Hostess products. The ribbon is the 5/8” Burlap Ribbon (#141487). I have used Night Of Navy card (#106577) and Very Vanilla card (#106550). Thank You was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Here’s a quick and easy card using thinlits and an embossing folder.
The base card is Whisper White (#106549). The other cardstock is Real Red (#106578), Basic Black (#121688) and Silver Foil Sheet (#132178). I embossed the Silver Foil using the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#144687). The sentiment is from the Lift Me Up stamp set (#c142896, #w142893) and was stamped with Real Red Ink (#126949). I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) on the Basic Black card before cutting it with the Up And Away Thinlits (#142748). This adhesive makes it very easy to adhere these detailed shapes to the card. I also added some glitter to the balloon using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897).
That’s all for today. I’ll be back soon.

Firstly, just letting you know that over the next month I won’t have a chance to do a blog every day. Hopefully it will be twice a week but I will be back with regular posts in December.
For this card I have used the beautiful Timeless Textures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514) for the background.
The images around the border have been stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) and Soft Suede (#126978). I stamped the “leaf” image with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). Happiest of Birthdays to You is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set (#c140658, #w140655) and stamped with Bermuda Bay ink (#131171). For the base card and bird I used Bermuda Bay card (#131286) and the card front is Very Vanilla (#106550). The bird is cut with the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (#141477), then the bird was attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).
Have a great day.

Hi & Welcome,
This Merry Patterns stamp set (#144973) is still available but only till 31st October as a hostess gift with an order or workshop of $450. You still receive the normal hostess rewards, so this is an addition. It is a Christmas set but these candles can be used for all occasions.
I stamped the candles 3 times ( there are 6 candles on the stamp) using Island Indigo ink (#126986) for the outline. The other inks I used for the candles are Pool Party (#126982) and Crushed Curry (#131173). The flames were stamped with Pumpkin Pie (#126945). These photopolymer stamps make it so easy to do the 2 step stampin’. You could also use the Stamp-a-ma-jig (#101049) which I use anytime I need to get images in just the right place. Happy Birthday is from the Big On Birthdays stamp set (#p142877) and I used Pool Party ink. The base card is Pool Party (#124391) and the cardfront is Whisper White (#106549). I added some gold Washi Tape from the Year Of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape (#144644) along the bottom of the card.
Have a great weekend.

I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card (#121681) to the left hand side and the Designer Series Paper is from the Merry Music Specialty DSP (#144623). The little drummer boy was stamped with Soft Suede ink (#126978), then cut with the die from the Musical Instruments Framelits (#144677). The greeting and border image were stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966). The leaves and berries were stamped with Tuxedo Black (#132708) and I coloured these with the new Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. These Stampin’ Blends are available from 1st November. The oval was cut with one of the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706) and the edges were sponged with Cherry Cobbler ink. The drummer boy and oval were both attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

I love the vibrant colour of the Lemon Lime Twist and I have paired it with Night Of Navy which works well together.
The cardstock is Lemon Lime Twist (#144250) amd Night Of Navy (#106577), with Very Vanilla for the sentiment. The Designer Series Paper is from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper (#144147). For the medallion I adhered a Eastern Gold Vinyl Sticker (#144150) to a piece of Night Of Navy card, then this was cut with the co-ordinating die from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits (#143725). The gold border is also from the Eastern stickers. I attached the medallion to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional (#104430), then added 2 pieces of the 5/8” Burlap Ribbon (#141487) with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). Thinking Of You is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set (#p143726) and stamped with Night Of Navy Ink (#126970). I used the die from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488) for the sentiment and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108) were used to attached this to the card.
Have a great day.
