Happy Easter

This beautiful card features an image, sentiment and die from Taylored Expressions Cottontail Wishes Stamp and Die Combo, which cleverly includes five other, non-seasonal greetings (Miss You, Happy Everything, Hello There, Celebrating You and Welcome Little One) so that you can use it all through the year, for everything from birthdays to babies to “just because” cards! The sweet bunny was stamped on Northwoods Watercolor Paper (not available online, but there’s plenty in stock!) and watercolored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens (we’ve got 101 colors!). The sentiment was stamped separately and diecut with Penny Black Ribbon Stackers.

Oh Baby! NEW Class in a Kit!

Oh Baby is our latest Class in a Kit, which makes four lovely, unisex cards with no stamping, embossing or diecutting necessary; though there is a bit of fussy-cutting. Each kit contains four double-sided sheets of patterned paper from P13’s beautiful Baby Joy collection and all the embellishments and mats shown, plus full instructions. You will have plenty of extra paper left over, to make several additional cards or a coordinating gift! Please note that all the kits have exactly the same papers, though as they are packed, some show more pink and some show more blue.
