New Stitched Framelits!!

Good afternoon to you!
How are you? Did any of my UK followers get snow on Wednesday? We didn't in Bolton, which is a shame because I love snow!

Oh well, moving on! Now that Halloween and Bonfire night are over I feel like I can really start my Christmas crafting, and to help I had a new delivery on Monday! You may have seen these being shown here and there....

If you haven't, let me explain. Stampin' Up! have released some brand new Framelits called Stitched Shapes and they are fantastic!! I couldn't wait to get in my craft room and have a play, so do you want to see?? Ok here you go....

Ok so as usual, I have to see just how coordinating these new Framelits are with the Layering Square Framelits and wow! They fit perfectly! 

I decided to dig out one of my forgotten stamp sets for this card. It's easy to get excited by new stuff but we mustn't forget our good old favourites too! The Poinsettia from Reason For The Season is heat embossed with the brand new Copper Stampin' Emboss and then I stamped over the top with the matching 'filler' stamps. The only thing is that that I forgot the ink wouldn't dry on the copper, so when I started to cut the flower out it all smudged! I thought it was a goner, but I got a baby wipe and gently wiped the ink off and it spread over the whole flower leaving it looking like it! I filled the centre with Gold Stampin' Glitter. Isn't it all so shiny and pretty??

I hope to have more play time with my new Framelits soon so of course I will share what I make! 

If you would like to see more of the Framelits, check out this little video, or you can go direct to my shop to order them!

Thanks for popping by today and see you soon!

Sparkly star!

Good morning!
Did you survive the trick or treaters last night? Did you have enough goodies to give out? I was out last night and Keiran was at cubs so we kind of gave Halloween a miss this year!

I realise that I haven't shared any of my makes from the Autumn/Winter catalogue recently, so now that Halloween is over and we can look forward to Christmas (after bonfire night of course!), here is one of the Christmas cards I made this weekend...

I used the Softly Falling embossing folder for the white panels, then the Starlight Thinlits to die cut the star out of Silver Glimmer paper.

The sentiment is from the co-ordinating Star Of Light stamp set and is stamped in Night Of Navy to match the card blank. The stamps and dies are available as a bundle for 10% off so why not get them together and save!

I used a very simple sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch to put my card together...I hope you like it :)

Happy All Saints Day!
