I've been having a bit of fun with the new Circle Cutter, available in the Summer Mini catalogue, so I've done just a few more Christmas cards. The Snow Swirled stamp set has been in action again as well as Real Red ink and cardstock. The craft Whisper White inkpad was used to stamp the Christmas Tree and sponge around the edges. The Christmas Tree was highlighted with the white gel pen and a drop of Crystal Effects for dimension.
The Christmas Tree is gold embossed onto Kraft cardstock and the circle Cutter was used to round the edge of the cardstock. Then the cutter settings were adjusted slightly to give a thin strip. Baja breeze is the base cardstock.

Here's something else you can do with the Chunky Glitter and the Scallop circle punch. This makes a quick and easy card with lots of colour. The Designer Series Papers are Petals and Paisleys and Bali Breeze. The stamp set Birthday Best also will retire. This set was my first purchase and has come in handy with lots of kids and ladies birthdays too!!

A little variation from flowers to the ocean or fish tank. Can you see the raised Crystal Effects bubbles? Also the embossed bubbles using the Crop-o-dile? Clear Chunky Glitter lines the sand on the bottom. The water is Blue Bayou in color cardstock and Old Olive Designer Series paper, all of which is retiring. Happy Birthday is from It's Your Birthday another retiring stamp set. The Ocean Commotion stamp set is in the Summer Mini Catalogue which finishes at the end of the March.

This little matchbox set of cards uses River Rock cardstock, Kraft and Very Vanilla cardstock. The Designer Series Paper Brocade Background is also used to decorate and coordinate the cards. This DSP as well as the It's your Birthday stamp set is also retiring on 31/03/09. Notice how you can gather the ribbon by pulling the white cord within the ribbon.

The flower has been created by tearing Very Vanilla Cardstock and layering the pieces. The centre of the flower is pink Chunky glitter from the Spring Mini catalogue. The double stitch ribbon is Purely Pomegranate with Regal Rose wide grosgrain underneath. The Designer Series Paper - Brocade Background will be retiring also.
The stamp sets used Baroque Motif and Basic Phrases will appear in the new 2009/10 Idea Book & catalogue.
Sorry about the colour here. Alot brighter IRL with a sparkling centre to the flower.

Bodacious Bouquet is retiring, so I've used it with Brocade Background Designer Series Paper. Also I have stamped the large flower with River Rock inkpad. River Rock, one of the In Color series, will be replaced by a new range of in colors.
The row of flowers and the butterfly are from the Summer Mini catalogue stamp set Live your Dreams. Lastly there is two Old Olive felt flowers also from the Summer Mini was will finish on 31 March too.
