Butterfly Gala Card and September Host Code

September 1st, 2019 by SMKal

September First – time for a new Host Code Special. The Host Code for September is MVT9P3KG – this code is valid through September 28th. If you place an order using this code I’ll send you a free gift next month – the Assorted Googly Eyes from the Holiday Catalog. For more info on how to use the Host Code click HERE.

This card above uses the beautiful stamp set called Butterfly Gala. There are four pairs of butterfly designs and a solid background stamp for the butterflies. They coordinate with the Butterfly Duet Punch for a quick and easy way to stamp, adorn and cut out 2 butterflies at a time (large and small). I am also in love with the mixed font sentiments in the set. I think you will love it too.

This design shows 3 different ways to use the butterfly image – top left is stamped directly on the card, detail image only, no background color. The small center butterfly is stamped with both layers and punched out, and the bottom right butterfly is stamped with both layers, punched, and placed on top of another butterfly punched (not stamped) from Flirty Flamingo cardstock. You will note I accidentally used Flirty Flamingo & Grapefruit Grove ink – by mistake – but I’m not mad and the result 🙂

The enamel dots are retired, but there are other options in our current catalog.

We are just a few days away from the Holiday Catalog going live! (starts September 4th) If you placed an order with me in the past few months you will have already received your catalog in the mail from me. If not, send me an email and I’ll get one out to you within the week. Beginning September 4th you can also view the catalog from my website (see the “catalog” tab)

Shopping starts on September 4th!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying a lovely 3 day Labor Day Weekend.

Sending you sunshine and smiles,

Wild Rose Birthday Card

June 24th, 2019 by SMKal

I love this new stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called To A Wild Rose!

Sold individually or as a Bundle (10% Savings with the Bundle) the stamp set includes 3 overlapping images to create the beautiful “DistINKtive” rose and includes several large script words and phrases. Such a beautiful set. The Wild Rose Dies complete the bundle with outlines to crop the rose and leaves, along with a large label and decorative element.

Wild Rose Dies

The sentiment was stamped with Highland Heather ink onto a label punched using the Story Label Punch. Behind that I used the Wild Rose Dies to cut the Tranquil Tide larger label. You will see the decorative element die used on the inside of my card.

I pulled in the retired Needle & Thread stamp set for my inside greeting and Humming Along for my front sentiment. If you are like me, even though a set retires, you will still continue to stamp with it.

I hope you enjoyed this card – I think if you give the To A Wild Rose stamp set a try you will absolutely love it as much as I do.

Thank you for stopping by.
