Hello stampers! Have you noticed the Most Wonderful Time product medley in the holiday catalog? It is sort of a hidden gem since the pictures don’t really jump out at you. You can find it on page 39 of the catalog. It is chock full of great things.


What is in the product medley?


  1. a DistINKtive 11 piece stamp set, some of which are two-step stamps
  2. six framelit dies one of which cuts out three presents at once
  3. 48 sheets of patterned paper with gold foil accents
  4. 12 gold foil card fronts
  5. 7 sticker sheets that have deer, trees, candy canes, holly boughs and stars
  6. 10 yards of delicate gold tinsel trim
  7. 58 adhesive backed gold faceted stars


The Challenge


As my regular readers know, I am currently in the Netherlands on a working holiday spending time with Gerard. I  took lots of supplies with me so that I could blog and create and do my regular Facebook videos. However….I am missing so many things! This time I would have loved to have a few circle punches or my layering circle framelits. Trust me, it has been a while since I have cut out a circle by hand. It’s not pretty! We’ll take a look at the card and maybe you can spot the trick I used on this card to make it work.


The Card





Here is close-up of the pretty details in this card.



Do you see the trick I used to mask my hand cut circle? I put a line of sparkly crystal effects around the edge of the circle and then sprinkled on Ice Stampin’ Glitter. Definitely an embellishment opportunity don’t you think?


The Lesson


I have learned that a  new stamper needs a lot of products to make this hobby fun. Of course you can make do with less, but that isn’t nearly as much fun. Therefore each new stamper should really start this hobby by getting the starter kit. It is by far the best deal in the catalog and it also gives you a personal discount of 20% for a minimum of 6 months. How wonderful is that?


The Class


I will be offering a class with this product medley on October 30 at 1pm and 7pm. If you purchase the medley you will make 6 free cards. You can register for the event here.




As always I want to thank you for dropping by. Did you know that behind the scenes I can see exactly how many people come to my blog? Blogging can be a lonely existence if no one drops by so I want to thank you and let you know that I see you and I thank you. Have a super day and happy stamping.
