Border Buddy Saturday - Carols of Christmas & Envelope Punch Board

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday, Patsy here to share another fun card using the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set & the awesome Card Front Builder Thinlits.

Carols of Christmas Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Don't you just LOVE the little border that frames this card front?  It was made with one of the thinlits from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot.  There are several unique dies in this set to create interesting card fronts for your cards.

The designer paper is from the Merry Music Designer Paper, you get 24 assorted double-sided sheets for only $13.00.  It is a bit lighter then our regular designer paper which makes it perfect for layering and even creating a coordinating envelope with our Envelope Punch Board.

The envelope punch board is a great way to make some fun coordinating envelopes.  You can also make some interesting unique cards with it too.

I love that the directions are right on the tool itself so you don't have to fumble around your stamp room to find them.  You can create over 66 sizes of envelopes with this board.

Just in CASE - A Little Wild Stamp Set

BB JUST IN CASE

It's Just in CASE Thursday which is the day that Patsy Waggoner and I share a project inspired by a sample from one of our current catalogues.  Sometimes we copy it exactly and sometimes we switch up the colours or stamps or both.

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

Today I'm sharing a card made for me by my friend Liane who was over playing with new product this week.  Liane was inspired (so she CASED it) by this card using the A Little Wild Stamp Set from page 108 of the Annual Catalogue.

Here's Liane's version of the card.  She switched out the colours and the image.

How adorable is this little elephant? When I was in Thailand I visited an Elephant Sanctuary whose mission is to rescue and rehabilitate elephants from the tourism trade.  It was an awesome way to interact with these beautiful creatures and to educate myself on abuses and how these wonderful sanctuaries are trying to help.

 The A Little Wild stamp set coordinates with the Little Loves Framelits Dies and when you bundle them you save 10%.

It's easier to watercolour on either the Watercolor Paper or Shimmery White cardstock because the water in your Aqua Painter won't "pill" these papers.
