Spring Borders Die Set – Part II

Spring Borders Die set

We’re in love with our Spring Borders Die set! If you missed the Monday post, be sure to check it out here! MONDAY

We’re continuing today with an in-depth look at two more of the dies in this set!

The first one is the darling heart cut-out die! This die is designed to cut a “window” in your card’s 5-1/4″ X 4″ or larger, layer. It allows for paper piecing or a lovely peek at the inside of the card. Cutting it out also provides you with lots of little hearts you can use as confetti in your card.

The next die is the Ribbon Threader Die. These darling daisies just beg for a ribbon, twine, or strip of patterned paper to be threaded through their little holes. Such a cute way to add ribbon to a card or project!

6X6 Cling Rubber

Fran’s 6″ X 6″ Cling Rubber Stamps are just ideal for creating home decor in addition to cards and papercrafts. Along with our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Rubber, these stamps put a variety of creative backgrounds at your fingertips. And their acrylic handles make them easy to use with any media from paint to ink and beyond. We hope you’ll give them a try and share what you create with us. You can load your creations to our Facebook Group, or directly to our website! We love sharing your art.

The great thing about these images is how subtly they can add a bit of texture to a card. Look at this great sample by Kristine Reynolds. The yellow background card has been delicately enhanced through the use of our 6CR002 Crackle stamp! It’s really subtle, but adds so much to the worn feel of the card along with the embossing powder and natural mica on the edges.

See you next week for a whole week of Laurel Burch for the Season!!!

 

Merry and Bright Friday!

Merry and Bright Banner

It’s been Merry and Bright all this week with some great ideas for holiday projects!  In case you missed them here are MONDAY and WEDNESDAY‘s posts. Next week we’ll be sharing with all of our Laurel Burch images for Christmas! And there will be Prizes, be sure to tune in Monday! Today, we’re sharing awesome cards to add a little, special, sparkle to Christmas.

In addition to our great holiday stamps this year, we released some awesome new essentials. Have a look at some of these wonderful products!

First up is our brand new Twinkle Glitter! This vintage-looking glitter adds a ton of sparkle wherever it goes. We like to add a focal piece on top of our Sticky Panels and then fill the rest of the exposed adhesive with this blingy wonder. The random sizes and shapes of the granules just fill up the space and sparkle and twinkle when you turn the card. Stunning!

Here’s a swatch (you can click on any of these pictures to visit the products or projects on our website) so you can see the grain size and shape variations, it’s really cool.

It comes in a beautiful, big jar, so you have lots to play with!

Another great new product we released this season was our Ice Pink Embossing EnamelIce Pink joins last year’s Rose Gold and Iced Blue in the Frantage Embossing Enamels line. These pearly metallics are holiday perfect! Photographs cannot do them justice!

This terrific sample from Louise Healy uses the Ice Pink Embossing Enamel over the top of Silver Embossing Paste  and the Ornament Mix stencil to create a fantastic molten magic card! It’s magical! You can find the directions and supplies on our website here!
