What’s *NEW* at Paper Anthology?

Lawn Fawn goodies galore! New Fall and Holiday stamp sets, (including Creatures Who ARE Stirring… only LF could come up with irresistible mice who love to bake, right?!) new Lawn Cuts die sets; plus new accessories for their popular Shutter, Reveal Wheel and Magic Iris (you have to see the Camera!) series.

Bounty from Concord & 9th! Beautiful new Background Stamp Sets, more of their unique and clever Turnabout Stamp Sets, plus super-useful holiday stamps and dies.

Brand new Impression Obsession! New hybrid ink colors, Fall and Holiday themed stamps, and LOTS of great new stamps sized for Slimline, but useful for ANY size card. Beautiful landscape elements like Mountains, Tree Lines, Hillsides, Snow, Clouds and more; each works wonderfully on its own, or you can use them together to Make a Scene… in a good way!

Glitter lovers rejoice! We’ve got twenty (20!!!) new colors of 8.5 x 11″ Non-shed Glitter Paper. Featuring a wide range of colors and several different scales, it’s not just 100% mess-free but DIECUTTABLE, too!

Take and Make Saturday!

Yes! You read that right! It’s Paper Anthology’s first Take and Make Saturday, this Saturday, October 3rd, 10-5. What’s a Take and Make? Well, it’s like a Make and Take, in that all of the parts and pieces are ready for you to assemble into an awesome card; but instead of doing that at the store, using shared supplies, you’ll take all the bits and pieces (plus complete instructions, of course) home and finish the card at your leisure. Thus: Take… and Make! This one features Blended Distress Inks in beautiful autumnal shades, over an amazingly textured background made with a terrific Spellbinders’ Cut and Emboss folder called “Delhi“. ps: Bag Ladies get double punches; all Sizzix dies are still 25% off and there is more new product in the store than we could list in one post, so c’mon In this Saturday!!!

Elizabeth Craft (CUTE!) Critters

I used the Fox and Raccoon Dies with the Forest Accessories Set… (other dies in this series include: Lion/Tiger, Giraffe, Monkey, Owl, Chick, Cat, Dog, Whale, Jungle Leaves, Tree, Dog House and more!) …on Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock – Velvety to the touch with just a tad of surface texture. It is sturdy and porous, a unique cardstock that absorbs color and holds its shape without tearing. Added color with various Distress Inks, applied with Picket Fence Studios Blender Brushes. The Sun is from Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rainbow Die Set.  The MFT Clouds Stencil is currently on order, and will be back in stock soon!

Yeti or Not

Taylored Expressions’ Mythical Grumplings are not yet the official mascot of 2020, but maybe they should be? Somewhat improbable, distinctly irritable, and it’s hard not to be just a tiny bit worried about what they might be planning next. On the other hand LOOK. HOW. CUTE! This card by Lauren Bergold is stamped in Ranger Archival Ink, colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and shaded with Polychromos Pencils from Faber-Castell.

Xmas in July Challenge

We’re playing online this week with a weekend long crop at the Paper Anthology Facebook page – come and join us! One of the challenges was to create a Christmas in July card, so I decided to ink up this Dare 2b Artzy stamp that I have been dying to play with. Black embossed, fussy cut, with a few extra petals added for dimension. I added a sentiment with an Impression Obsession die and some gems from Studio Katia. Turns out it’s perfect for the current challenge over at Shopping our Stash as well!

New Christmas Card Club Kit!

I’ve been having fun with a beautiful wreath die set from Pink Fresh studios. Playing with metallic cardstock, glitter paper, mirror card and Plaid, which is a huge favorite of mine, especially for Holiday cards! The Christmas Card Club In A Kit II comes with the wreath die set and kits for 2 of each card, to make a total of 4 cards. This is an easily reproduced design using your favorite patterned paper, and since you get the wreath die, you can make as many as you want! The wreath can also easily be turned into a spring wreath…the die set even comes with little flowers that you can use instead of berries!
