When I first started cardmaking, I was intimidated by building layers. But the Rectangle Stitched Framelits take the guesswork out of building layers - AND they add the delicate stitched edges for added details.

What do roosters and Valentine's have anything to do with each other? Absolutely NOTHING! But, I had these white hearts that I'd cut out from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits sitting on my desk from my Monthly Club Facebook Live session last night and thought, "Hmmm...let's stamp a chicken on it." I know...clearly not enough coffee this morning! Here's how my actual creative process works at 0'dark thirty in the morning.
While the process seems a bit messy, this really is a good example of #SimpleStamping. I'm absolutely certain that someone out there really needs to send/receive a card, with a red rooster in a heart, with an "Missing you" sentiment, right?
I'm just giving you measurements today, since walked you through the process above.

To stitch or not to stitch...is that even a question? When I saw today's CASE-ing Tuesday sketch, I thought "piece of cake". I got my card all finished and compared it to the photo, and thought, "There's stitched rectangles there!" So, I went and opened my brand new pack of Rectangle Stitched Framelits and my Stitched Shapes Framelits and very quickly made another card with stitching. Now...I know which one I like best. How about you? (Leave me a comment below and tell me which one is your favorite).
The Rectangle Stitched Framelits has 13 stitched dies, perfect for making layered mats for card making or scrapbooking. You can purchase them separately for $35 or bundle them with the Amazing Life Stamp Set and save 10%. And since the bundle is $50.25, you' qualify for a free Sale-a-Bration item, too!
Want to play along with the CASE-ing Tuesday group?
Use the sketch to plan out your card. You can change a lot, a little, or make the card just as it is in the catalog. Then post it to the Facebook thread. We can’t wait to see your cards. You can use the following hashtag if you post your card elsewhere on Facebook #CASEingtuesday183.
We may be singing Deck the Halls, but these Spirited Snowmen are celebrating their love with the new Meant to Be Bundle. No matter what the season, love is what it's all about.
As I was designing my January Card Club last night with the new Meant to Be Bundle, I made an awesome discovery. The new Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, cut out a solid heart as well as the stitched scalloped frame at the same time! And then I wondered...will that snowman couple fit on the heart? And you know what? They do! I just love it when a plan comes together, don't you?

I saw a similar design on Pinterest the other day and knew I had to give it a try. How did I not notice my wonky bow though when I was taking the photo? Argh...Guess it needs an extra glue dot before it gets mailed off.
You know by now that my favorite stamp set this spring was Petal Palette. You have no idea how glad I was to see it carrying over into the new catalog. You could have taken every stamp set off my shelves if I could just have kept this set for a little longer. (Thankfully, that didn't need to happen!) And while I love the sentiments from this set, nothing seemed to fit this card when it was finished. I scoured my shelves and came up with this one from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set. I haven't used that one very much, and thought this sentiment was somehow fitting.
This card really is one of those that's prettier in person. I watercolored the Flirty Flamingo background using my Wink of Stella glitter brush. Then, stamped the branches in Early Espresso. The overall effect was quite difficult to capture with the camera, though.
I will be in Washington DC this weekend visiting friends, so there won't be a Crafty Saturday Facebook Live this week. But please, stay tuned next week. We'll have to do a quick one before my monthly club comes at 10 . Yikes!
Happy weekend everyone! Be sure to post pictures on my Facebook page of what you're crafting this weekend. I'm taking my Paper Pumpkin on the train with me. That ought to be fun, don't you think?
