Christmas Quilt and Quilt Builder Framelits

This card is part of the Quilted Christmas Suite, 
found on page 5 of the Holiday catalog.  You have to look
closely because there are a number of products shown
on that page.  Initially, I missed the Quilt Top Textured 
Impressions Embossing Folder!

I really like this suite, because it enables
the crafter to create warm, engaging projects that
the receiver will love.  In the example above, I created
a very quick, simple prlject, using the Christmas Quilt set
and coordinating Quilt Builder Framelits Dies.  I love
the font used for the sentiment.

Christmas Pines on DSP

There are a few Holiday sets in the annual catalog and
Christmas Pines on page 120 is one of my favorites.
 This set coordinates with the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies
on page 216.  In this example, I have used the set only.

Layering the sentiment, cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits (on page 214),  over Wood Textures and Color Theory
DSP,  (page 187), enabled me to create a Holiday
color combination.  I like the gray tone in the Wood Texture,
which coordinates with the Silver Foil Sheets.

Colorful Seasons Just Breathe

I think that the Colorful Seasons set (p 147), with coordinating
Seasonal Layers Thinlits (p 216) Bundle is some of the
best, most cost efficient product in the 2017-18 SU catalog.
This bundle lends itself to almost any gender, season or
situation.  Well, I guess that I have to qualify that claim
by saying it's the best for someone MY age. 
I can't speak for other generations!

The other ESSENTIALS used on this card are the
Stitched Shapes Framelits on page 214 and the
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack on page 187.
This card sort of sums up my catalog best pics!

Daisy Punch on Wood Textures

The new Daisy punch, on page 206, is just a bunch of fun.
It is a quick and easy way to add some WOW to
your card, package or scrapbook page.  In this example,
I layered 3 daisies over some Wood Textures Designer
Series Paper (page 187).  The daisies look great in an 
elegant setting, or rustic.  The Tranquil Tide card base
was run through the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions
Embossing Folder on page 211.

Wood Crate Framelits with Wood Words

The Wood Crate Framelits (p 212), with Wood Words 
stamp set (p 159) is a beautiful bundle.  It gives you a
container, plus unique images and shapes.  This bundle also
coordinates really well with the Wood Textures DSP
on page 187.   Nothing like a rooster against woodgrain. 
Actually, from my perspective, the 
Wood Textures DSP coordinates with everything!

Stamp Off This Little Piggy Sketch

Thank you for coming by to see what Susan, Buffy and I
are up to.  We look forward to our every other Friday
Stamp Off challenges, and this week is no exception!
I like sketch challenges and this one is fun because there
is an obvious focal point.  I appreciate obvious, because
it points me in a solid direction for creating.
 And what better focal point, than This Little Piggy, found
on page 48!!  There is nothing better than looking at a card,
and discover this little face looking back.
The rest of this card is accessories, to coordinate with Miss Piggy.
I selected a Delicate White Doily, found on page 194,
and some 5/8" Burlap Ribbon (page 198).   I love using
the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
with Miss Piggy,  because I think that it coordinates
with her curly tail.  Probably only in my mind!
I hope that you enjoyed our sketch.  Please hop on
over to see what Buffy and Susan have done with it!
