December Thank You Cards featuring All things Thanks from the Upcoming Occasions Catalog

Hello stampers and crafters I hope that you are doing well today.  Today I am sharing with you my Thank you cards for November and December.  If you have placed an order with me during this time period you will be getting one in the mail very shortly.  My card features the All Things thanks stamp set (available January 4th) from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.  This is a wonderful thank you sentiment stamp set, and we all need a great stamp set for thank you cards.  I mean really we all need thank you cards.

All Things Thanks by Stampin' Up!
If you look at the images above you can see that there are some great thank you sentiments in this set and some wonderful fonts.   There's a font for anyone, and each one will give a different feel for each card you create with this stamp set.   Here's a look at my card for today.
When I started creating this design I knew that I wanted to use the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper, especially this pattern.  I knew that I wanted to use the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and this paper with the Candy Cane Hearts was perfect.  It had the matching hearts, plus it was great for December Thank you's.   So it was only natural that I went with Real Red, Crumb Cake and Whisper White as my color pallet.
Which to me is a classic color combination.   I have used this combo a lot and I just love it.  These are some of the colors that I gravitate to most. 

Sizes and Dimensions:

  • Crumb Cake 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Real Red 4 x 4
  • Whisper White 3 1/2 x 3 1/2
  • Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper 4 x 5 1/4


Here's another look at today's card. 
Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you all are having a safe and happy holiday.  If you would like to to pick up the supplies to recreate this card (besides the Candy Cane Lane DSP which is sold out) and the All things thanks (Available Jan. 4) you can pick them up in my online store or by clicking on the products in the links below.

Ocassions & Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek featuring Stampin' Up!'s Hey Chick, All Things Thanks and New Watercolor Pencils

Hello my friends I am so excited to be sharing with you this morning some of the upcoming products in both the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure both going live January 4, 2017.   I am just going to say there are so many great things in both these new books that you will be so excited to get your hands on them all.

 Whats the Hue with Watercolor Pencils:

With the new catalogs coming out we are also getting one of my favorite new products.  I am so excited that we are getting New Watercolor Pencils.   And as I stated in the video below, I have used and purchased many different watercolor pencils due to having an art degree, and being an artist.   And, I absolutely love these watercolor pencils.
 They move like butter.   Each pencil has a range of color, that is a major thing for any watercolor pencil.  To make it even better they blend beautifully.   Each pencil match our ink colors fabulously.  I was very impressed with the quality and abilities of our new Pencils, I highly recommend them.

I feel these will be a number one seller come January 4th.   I am so about to order another couple sets for classes.

Hey Chick You're Amazing: 

Coming up with this card was so easy, I loved both these sets since I saw them back in November at OnStage in Atalanta.   And, I knew that I was going to get them both once I placed my orders.
Let's talk about the stamp set All Things Thanks.  This is a wonderful Thank you Stamp set, it has so many different fonts, and styles that it will please everyone.   This set has so many great thank you sentiment that it could be used for all kinds of thank you cards.   The large Thanks for Everything stamp is a wonderful size it is nice and large, much more so than I thought it would be. 


Thanks for dropping by today and I hope that you have enjoyed my sneak peek of some of the wonderful new products coming out very very soon.   If you would like a new occasions catalog and are not working with a demonstrator already I would love to send you one for free.   You can request a catalog by filling out the form below.

Lift Me Up! for #PCC223

Hello Stampers and crafters today's card is part of the Paper Craft Crew' s Weekly Sketch Challenge.  Each week we have a different challenge for everyone to join.  If you have followed me for anytime you know that I feel very strongly about sketch challenges.   Challenges are a great way for you to improve your design skills and build confidence.      

This weeks sketch is a fun and open sketch.  It leaves so much for you to play with and change to make your own, as you will see in each Design Team Member's projects.  Here's a look at this weeks challenge sketch.

See what I am talking about this weeks sketch challenge is so open to interpretation.  You, will have so much fun creating a project for this weeks challenge.  Here's a look at the card that I created for this weeks sketch.

 Today's card is a very fun and festive card.   Today I am sharing with you products that will not be available until January 4th, 2017.  The major parts of today's card are all new product from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.  This is the first sneak peek that I have shared with you from the upcoming catalog.   If you don't have a demonstrator that you are working with I would love to send you a Occasions Catalog.

Tricks & Tips:  

To cut out the hot air balloon you will want to use the the new Big Shot Platform along with the Precision Base Plate.  This combination will help you cut out the delicate hot air balloon thinlit out extremely easily.   I cut out the Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, and Emerald Envy strips with the matching thinlits that fit behind the delicate die.   To attach each piece I used the fine tip glue pen to adhere each piece behind the die cut.  I know that it looks harder than it really is.  Once you can order the supplies you will see what I am talking about.

First Things First: 

To start the card you want to stamp the images on the Tangerine Tango cardbase (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2) in Tangerine Tango Classic ink.   Next attach the 1" x 4 1/4" piece of Party Animal Designer Series paper.   All the colors from today's card came from the colors in the Designer Series paper with the exception of Melon Mambo.   It was just a great compliment to all the Bright fun colors.
You really can not go wrong with any thing you put these colors together with.  They are such fun bright fun colors and they make everyone just happy.

Here's a final look at today's card.  I hope that you enjoy today's card, as much as I did creating it.  Remember that you can purchase these products starting January 4, 2017.   I hope that you play along with us this week.  I know that you will have a wonderful time playing along.   You have from today until Monday to upload your photo.  Click here to head over to the Paper Craft Crew's website to play along.

Thanks for dropping by and I will see you again tomorrow with a new post.
