What do Cable Knit Dynamics have to do with paper crafting?  Take a look.

Texture! Can you see it?  It’s the background.  There’s a new kid coming to town.  The new kid on the block is called the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Whew! That’s quite a handle!  We really do need a shorter name, don’t you think?

What makes this embossing folder dynamic?  The super deep texture you get.  Shannon from Stampin’Up! shows us more Cable Knit dynamics.

Don’t you just love it?  It’s part of the Warmth & Cheer Suite in the new Holiday Catalog.  Turn to page 13 for more information.

Die Cuts – Yesterday I promised a Christmas card using the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  This is it!  Check out the lacy strip behind the focal piece as well as the glistening poinsettia. Now that’s how to get more mileage from your tools!  Thank you to the designer behind this set of Thinlits, whoever you are.

The Paper, This Christmas Specialty DSP, comes from Stampin’Up!s Annual Catalog. What makes it so special?  The weight is lighter than their standard Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Even better, you get twice as many sheets. Nice!  This card doesn’t do it justice.  Come back tomorrow for another holiday card using this beautiful paper.

Warm Christmas Wishes comes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set, also in the Annual Catalog. With it’s warm phrases and images it’s perfect for the snowflake lover in all of us.  Did I say that it’s also crystal clear photopolymer AND coordinates with Snow Flurry Punch?  What’s not to love?

Flourishing Thanks for You

Happy Friday!  Great week, how about you? There’ll be some good, old fashioned, thank you’s in the mail soon. Today’s share, Flourishing Thanks, is a super simple card. Perfect for those times when you need some sweet thank you’s in a hurry.

Flourishing Thanks at WildWestPaperArts.com

Recently, I participated in a few card swaps. Flourishing Thanks is my contribution for the Thank You Card Swap. Swapping cards can be fun and at the same time overwhelming especially if there are a large number of swappers. The trick?  Create a beautiful card without too many elements.  Think assembly line. The Flourishing Phrases Bundle makes it easy.

If you could only choose one bundle for your creation station, this is a perfect choice. The stamp set has paired phrases perfect for several occasions. Take a look at the inside of my card for an example.

The large flower Thinlit even looks like a poinsettia. Tomorrow I’ll share a Christmas Card that makes use of this non-Holiday tool.

Today’s Tip:  Use the Fine-tip Glue Pen when attaching delicate die-cuts like the flourish shown in this project. Use it sparingly. Even though the glue dries clear, it will leave a mark that shows up to the eagle-eye. Especially dark paper, like this project.

Sunshine Wishes for PPA315

Yikes!  This post, Sunshine Wishes for PPA315, almost didn’t happen!

Sunshine Wishes for PPA315 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Why?  It sold the day after it was created.  So glad most of the pictures were taken before it left the workshop.  That was close!

We’re back with a fun and unique color challenge. This week’s challenge by Michelle Gleeson features something Old Olive and something new with Dapper Denim from the 2016–2018 In Color Collection. If those two colors don’t already look great together, Michelle added So Saffron for a touch of sunshine. Play along with us and strut your stuff.  Let’s get started with some Sunshine Wishes for PPA315.

Sunshine Wishes for PPA315 at WildWestPaperArts.comHave fun with this trio, but beware. If you’re not careful, Dapper Denim will overpower So Saffron and no one wants that. Right?

Tone it Down.  Tame the dominate color by using the Stamp Off technique or use a gradient of the color, like in the background piece from By the Shore Designer Series Paper.  You could also just use less of the power color.

Complete Package.  Card, envelope and the perfect sentiment inside, make the package. Sunshine….

Sunshine Wishes for PPA315 at WildWestPaperArts.com

I chose Sunshine Sayings Clear Mount Stamp Set and Sunshine Wishes Dies (aka the Sunshine Sayings Bundles) to create this card. Make these colors shine with simple, bold images.  This bundle is just the ticket.

The Butterfly is another scrap piece from trying a few different things when creating the inside sentiment.  Don’t you just hate to through scraps away?  This one landed on the Big Shot and became the butterfly you see here.

Sunshine Wishes for PPA315 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Accent the original pallet with Enamel Shapes from the 2016-2018 In Color (Dapper Denim), Subtles (So Saffron) and Brights (Old Olive) collections.
