I am so happy to see vintage cards making a comeback! This is one style that really drew me into creating cards over 15 years ago! When the new catalog was unveiled at On Stage, I knew this would be first on my list! The Woven Heirlooms stamp set has some sincere statements and some distressed elements to compliment any card or project!
The whole Woven Threads suite is just gorgeous! AND you can order it with one code!!! The Woven Threads DSP has some beautiful patterns that are distressed! They paired some new In Colors into some unique combinations! I used a more monocromatic look for my card. The sentiment is stamped with Crumb Cake on to the paper with the vintage muslin looking design. (I tried to used Sahara Sand ink, but it was too faint). I taped it behind the frame I made from the Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders combo.
To create the flower, I stamped the flower from the Floral Essesnce stampe set in Rococo Rose onto the DSP that had the Rococo Rose distressed design. I used the coordinating Perrennial Flower punch and the Leaf Punch for a quick flower embellishment. I then used the new Rococo Rose Dark Blend to color in the gem.
The 1/2″ Rococo Rose Gathered ribbon looks soooooo pretty in person!! It really pops off of this card! I used a strip of SNAIL and then pressed a little down, then folded a little to the right, and pressed down again to create the rouching!
I hope you enjoyed this card-I know that the girls in my stamp club loved it!
Do you remember the card I made a couple of weeks ago with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits? I kept all the ones that were cut off and created this gem! And I have enough for one more! The one item that made these butterflies a breeze to put together was the Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheet! Just place a piece on the cardstock color you will use for your detailed die, then run it through the Big Shot! You now have a sticker-peel off the back and place on top of the bottom color! Crazy, I didn’t even use a stamp or ink on this card!
I LOVE the FREE Botanical Butterfly Paper! The back side of each colorful piece of DSP has a black and white pattern! I love this gingham with the Calypso Coral and Black! I was going to add a sentiment, but I felt it would have been too much! Clean and Simple!

I wanted the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits, but I didn’t know how stunning they would turn out when you cut them out with the Big Shot! Wow! I can’t wait to make more and cut them up to make a collage/framed art piece! It comes with 20 dies! I placed them in the photo so you could see one has more detail than the other. I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets with the Basic Black cut out for a simple adhesion to the Calypso Coral! (if you have ever had/heard of a Zyron, this is very similar-but easier)
The background is watercolor paper with Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight watercolor pencils mixed with water from the Aqua Painter. THEN I squeezed a liberal amount of Wink of Stella Clear over that! SOOOO pretty in person!
And remember how I told you the Rectangle Stitched Framelits are a must? Well, I used it again here to paper save and add more texture to this card! The DSP is the FREE Botanical Butterfly DSP-each flip side as a Black & White design on it!
A quick sentiment that is easily cut out with a punch and coordinating stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!
How about adding the items for this card or even the Big Shot and some goodies?

Are you as obsessed with the Buffalo Check craze as I am? When I saw the Buffalo Check Background stamp, I bought it with my first order! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and I love how it turned out!
I highly recommend to buy the wood mount with background sets. I like that they stamp a much more even and crisp image.
TIP: ink your stamp with your color of choice and lay your stamp rubber side up. Place your paper on top of the rubber. Then, pull your grid paper (or a piece of scratch paper) and rub all over to get an even image. And no ink on you!
To make the sentiment pop, I used the marker to rubber method. I always huff on it before stamping the image too! To finish it off, I used the 1/8″ Real Red ribbon and Burlap ribbon to make it look farmhouse!

Que up the Christmas cards! I saw the Dashing Deer bundle in the New Holiday Catalog and I had to have it! I made this card for my stamp clubs this month! I was very happy that the detail inside the deer remained after using Versa Mark and Gold Embossing Powder. Looks so majestic!!
I paired it with a strip of paper from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper! You should see the patterns in this pack! Just gorgeous!! And you get 4 of each of the 6 designs (2 sided/12 pages)
Next, I added some texture by running a piece of Garden Green through the Big Shot using the Swirls & Curls embossing folder! Then I stamped the scroll with Crumb Cake color on color on the top and bottom. To create the flowing banner, I used my Bone Folder to curl the middle of the sentiment piece. I curled the ends the opposite direction and added 2 layers of dimensionals in the center to help it keep its shape. I finished the card off with a bow made from the Cherry Cobbler Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine.
For your order of $50 or more, I will mail you the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine for FREE! ($8 value)! Be sure to use September’s HOST code DBD2NF34 at check out! (deadline 9/30/18).
I made this card for our Quarterly Team Gathering! Cute and simple, plus it features all of the items that you can purchase now through TOMORROW! It features the Assortment #2 Watercolor Pencils and the colors are amazing! A great compliment to our first assortment! And there are also the Stitched Seasons (sold as a bundle or separate) dies that create visual interest and texture to your projects!
I also have fallen in love with the new Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder! It creates a textured card stock feel to your smooth card stock! Of course I used Wink of Stella on my Crushed Curry flower buds for subtle bling! Plus it helps blend the watercolors too! Just be sure to brush off on your scratch paper after you are done.

I am off to a craft retreat for this holiday weekend! I can’t wait to be with my crafting friends! Stay tuned for LOTS of new creations!
This card reminds me of the Cobalt Blue plates that my grandmother had showcased in her china cabinet! It is a simple, yet elegant card!
The catch is this is a Host set only! The set also has a lace doily, a detailed bee, and beautiful accents to add more visual effects on your project!
It features the new In Color 2018-2020 Blueberry Bushel and it’s coordinating DSP pack! If you are just starting out, this is a great card layout for you! All I used was one color ink, 2 cardstock colors, 1 stamp set, adhesive, and baker’s twine (optional). This is a go to layout for me when I am stumped for a quick card too! I can change it up a bit with colors, textures, images, and embellishments-and no one notices!
Here is a video to show how simple it is to create! The end has the item numbers too!
