A little sparkle with Pretty Pines and Cable Knit

Hi there, friends! Hope you had a great weekend! I'm sure many of you are in the midst of holiday prep and all that good stuff...I know I am! So much to do and so little time! I'm just popping by today with a quick share of a Christmas card I made using the Pretty Pines Thinlits and Cable Knit embossing folder. So, this embossing folder is a brand new style that's thicker than the traditional embossing folders and I do have to say I was really amazed at the 3-dimensional texture of this knit - it really does pop! You can see the intricate details and it truly does transform the paper with this knit pattern!  I love the Pretty Pines thinlits, too. The pine needles and pinecones add a nice and festive touch.  I also wanted to incorporate a touch of sparkle, and what better to do so than with some gold sequins lightly dusted on the page?! To give the card some flair, I added a few random slivers of gold foil paper and Certainly Celery card stock to pizzazz it up a little. Hope you like it!

Here's a closer look at the Pretty Pines thinlits and Cable Knit embossing folder for you:

Hope you got some Christmas inspiration on your visit today. Thanks for stopping by!

Cookie Cutter Christmas Tags!

Hey there friends! Hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends! We were up in Seattle to celebrate at my sis-in-law's house and we had a great time hanging out with family. I think we might have brought some rain back to SoCal, but it felt nice to have some rainy weather for a change :) It definitely got me in the mood for crafting and getting ready for Christmas!

I got a lot of use out of my Cookie Cutter Christmas Photopolymer Bundle!  It comes with the Cookie Cutter Christmas photopolymer stamps and super cute Cookie Cutter Builder punch - you can check it out below:

Here's one more batch of tags I made - this time I added some flair with a touch of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper Pack (DSP):

You can check these out along with the Online Extravaganza sale items at my online store, where there's no waiting in line. Just in time for some cyber Monday browsing ;)

Spooky fun Halloween scene!

Hey there Friends! Happy October! I was so excited to make my first Halloween card of the season since I got to play with some fun new goodies from the Stampin'Up! Holiday Catalog.  It all started with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch and the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set that I used for the cute little mummy. The Spooky Fun Photopolymer Bundle gave me the spooky scene I was looking for with the pumpkins, tree and the witch!

Here's some other close ups for you:

For my gray sky background, I used the Lucky Stars embossing folder.  Hope you like it!  Thanks for coming by - hope you're inspired to do some Halloween crafting! :)

Sneak peek of Stampin'Up!'s new In Colors!

Happy Monday, blog friends! Hope you all had a great weekend.  I have a quick share of the pretty new In Colors that will be available in Stampin'Up!'s upcoming 2016-2017 catty. How yummy do these look?!  I paired these pretty butterflies with the coordinating ruched ribbon, which is even prettier in person!  I love making these mini clothespins - so easy to make and they instantly cutify whatever you clip them to!  I just used a glue dot to adhere the butterflies onto the clothespins and viola, instant cuteness!

Here's a look at the cardstock and coordinating markers:

These lovely colors are Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim.  Hope you like them! The new catalog is just a few weeks will be available on June 1st!

Have a great day and thanks for popping by!

Hello there! Catching up with a little Balloon Celebration

Hi there friends! It's me - I know it's been quite a long time since my last post. Here we are in May already, and as usual, I think time just has a way of sneaking past...even when we're looking with eyes wide open! Needless to say, I have missed you all and have missed carving out my time to blog and craft. I've done a little here and there, but forgive me for not posting on the good ol' blog. For me, I've found that a quick Instagram and occassional Facebook post has been more my speed at documenting my world lately. Oh, don't get me wrong - things are great! Just frenetically busy! I won't bore you with the trials and tribulations of a working mom with a hellish commute to the office, but suffice it to say that my focus has been on family time and work. That said, I have come to the conclusion that it's more rewarding to live in the moment and relish in it when you can. Life is too short! However, I've resolved that I will blog when I can and will aim to get back on a more regular cadence to check in with you all and give you guys a roundup of what's going on in Rose's World.  Some of you may be wondering if I'm still a Stampin'Up! Demonstrator, and the answer to that is YES! 

Part of my renewed excitement is due to the recent Stampin'Up! OnStage event, which gave us demonstrators a sneak peek of the upcoming catalog and of course, I'm super excited and can't wait to get my hands on the super cute stamp sets and products!  You'll just have to wait a little while longer - the new catalog premiers June 1!

I am happy to share that I did have a chance to do some crafting over the weekend, and boy did it feel great! I made this cheery birthday card for a sweet little friend's first birthday over the weekend. This stamp set just made me happy making this card, not to mention the pretty girly colors, too! I love the Balloon Celebrations photopolymer stamp set.  So adorable! Thanks for popping by today. I appreciate your visits :)  Have a great one and I'll see you back sooner than later!
