A Sweet "Country Home"


Buffalo Check and Country Home....a perfect pair

I have to tell you...both of these were on my "must have" list as soon as I made my way through the Holiday Catalog the first time.  There's just something about the Buffalo Check that says "Home" to me.  I just love it.
The background technique is one of my faves and it is so simple.  I stamped the Buffalo Check in Bermuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay card stock.  I love it.

The images from the Country Home stamp set are beautiful and right up my alley.  They are colored using Stampin' Blends and it really is a fun card to make.

Here are the supplies I used.  Just CLICK HERE to shop for the products you'd like using Host Code 2XGXW4UF.

Don't forget the special this week for World Card Making Day.  Check it out for great deals.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.  Get those fingers inky! :-)
Stamped Blessings,
Michelle

NEW "Shiplap Santa" Punch Art

Happy Monday, Peeps!

I have been having so much fun in the studio and I couldn't wait to share this NEW punch art cutie with you.

Meet "Shiplap Santa"

Doesn't he just make you smile?  LOL  
This project also highlights a couple of sneak peeks from the upcoming Holiday Catalog.
There's NEW Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, the NEW Christmas Bulb Builder Punch and the gorgeous NEW Galvanized Buttons.  Oops!  I almost forgot to mention the Stitched Seasons Framelits (149013) which are already available.  

Check out the card's trifold design...

I just LOVE those stitched framelits.  This set is a little different from the Stitched Shapes Framelits in that the stitching on the inside and the outside of the shape.  They are perfect to create frames like I have here.

Are you ready to make Shiplap Santa? 
Get the color pdf tutorial for FREE when you place 
a $25 order from my Online Store.

To order ONLY the tutorial, go to the "Tutorials" tab at the top of the page.  Cost:  $20.00


Have fun bringing your very own Shiplap Santas to life!

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,
Michelle

NEW Punch Art Tutorial Debuts



Hello, my friends!

I've been working on some exciting new punch art here in the studio and today I'm thrilled to debut this sweet one.  Cinderella is by far one of my favorite princesses and I love the way she just shines on this card.  The Magical Day stamp set, Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Whisper White Narrow Notecards and Envelopes all come together to make this project just POP!
All of these products are available at my ONLINE STORE.  

This step-by-step, color tutorial is available for FREE with any $15 purchase at my Online Store or $10 for the tutorial only option.

I've changed the Tutorials page here on the blog and I'll be adding a bunch of NEW ones in the coming weeks.  I'm working with a new system where you will be able to instantly download your tutorials after purchase.  WOOT!  

That being said....I'm also offering a new format for purchasing.  You'll see on each one that's listed that they will be FREE with a purchase from my Online Store or you can purchase them straight out without a product purchase and just get the tutorial....Your choice.

Please bear with me as I work out the kinks in this new system.  I'm excited to get started and I hope you are too.

To see this first tutorial offering, simply click on the "TUTORIALS" tab at the top of the page.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Below are the supplies needed to create the Cinderella Tsum card and envelope.  To order any or all supplies, just click on a product image and you'll be taken right over to your Shopping Cart at my Online Store.

Wishing you a magical day,
Michelle

Sure Do Love You


"Sure Do Love You" Fun Frame

I've been creating the inserts for my Fun Frame classes since last fall and have to say I think this one is my FAVORITE.  I might just have to leave it up all year long.

I absolutely LOVE the color combo and the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS.  The photo doesn't do it justice.  The gold foil is just stunning.

These 9" x 9" framed samplers seem to be all the rage right now and I can see why.  They go together pretty quickly and it's wonderful to be able to switch them out each month for a new theme.  All of the products listed below can be found at my Online Store.  Just CLICK HERE to head over there.

 The 9" x 9" frame is from Ikea and is called "Ribba".  They come in white, black and woodgrain.

Come on and share the love!  You'll be glad you did.

Stampin' Hugs,
Michelle
