I tried to get at least one shot where you can really see the clear Heart Epoxy Droplets. They show up much better in person than in the photos.

Come Sail Away M&M Card Card

No, that isn’t a mistake. This is a card made with a card from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack. The M&M card packs make it super quick and easy to make a card – just adhere it onto the front of a card base and you’re done! This card also has a couple pieces of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.

It’s time for the June 2019 OSAT Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Something Old, Something New. We’re featuring new products used along with products that carried over from previous catalogs.

A Little Lace Bundle Happy for You Card

Today’s card was a snap to make. I used the new A Little Lace bundle (A Little Lace stamp set and Stitched Lace Dies) to create this pretty, lacy So Happy for You card in Rococo Rose and Very Vanilla.

Before I show you the card, I want to make sure you know about the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate. The new 3D Embossing Folders aren’t as thick as the older Dynamic Embossing Folders (they use up less storage space!) and this new plate enables you to get the full effect from them. It’s thicker than the regular clear cutting plates that come with the Big Shot.

Cut using the Stitched Lace Dies:
