I was talking to a lady about the new seasonal catalogue yesterday and was surprised to hear her say that she just can't think about Christmas at this time of year. It wasn't so much the not thinking about Christmas that surprised me, it was that she had assumed the catalogue was just about Christmas. It IS full of exciting festive kits, stamps, papers and embellishments of course (so those that are happy to think about Christmas can get started now!) but there are loads of other fabulous new items too. Today's card was made with one that leapt out at me! Come and see:
Doesn't the die-cut word pack a punch?! It was cut with one of the new Expressions Thinlits dies (p.36 of the seasonal catalogue). TIP: If you find a word doesn't pop easily out of your new die, try tapping the die with your embossing buddy before using it to cut your card stock.
The die says 'thankful' in fact but I chopped the end off with my paper snips to leave the word 'thank' and teamed it with the word 'you' from Oh Hello. I layered these over some beautifully subtle washi tape strips. One is a herringbone design from the new Season of Style washi tape pack (p.25 of the new catalogue) which I've found works brilliantly with many of the other Stampin' Up designs like this one from the Epic Day pack.
I loved making this simple card and have plenty more ideas up my sleeve for using these dies - watch this space!
Here's what you'll need to make this card

Ink: Pumpkin Pie marker

I was talking to my daughter (who must have been taking a brief break from going to parties) yesterday. "You sound like a bally fool to me!" I said, pretending to be a cross posh person. "Oh no Mummy!" she protested. "I wouldn't mind being a ballet foal but not a bally fool!" She does keep me amused!
See you tomorrow,
