I showed you in yesterday’s post the cute Flip Top Treat Box using the Lots To Love Box Framelits. Here it is if you missed it but you can jump back to the last post though too and see more of it and the instructions.
This is actually a cute little Framelit set but there were parts that I wasn’t sure what they were used for. Like those little tiny arch shaped dies down at the bottom of the image below???
I found this video from Stampin’ Up! explaining the pieces and showing some great projects. I thought for my Wednesday WOW! #14 this week we will take a look at this set. Very timely today being Valentine’s Day right. ❤ It does work well with the matching Sure Do Love You stamp set too.
That explains everything!
You can grab the Framelits in my store now -> HERE $57 AUS or grab the bundle and use them together. Clear mount stamp set is $84.50 AUS See that -> HERE.
Aren’t these projects pretty? These are from the current Occasions Catalogue and shows how gorgeous the products are especially with the beautiful Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series paper. SO much prettiness!

A bonus of being a demonstrator is that we get to order the products way before customers can. It gives us much more time to play with them. When I first got my Stampin’ Blends a couple of weeks ago I also ordered this new set Color Me Happy. It’s such a sweet set. I shared these cards on Instagram and Facebook but hadn’t got to share them with you as yet. So it seems a good time now to show you what I have been doing.
What do you think of this Color Me Happy Set. Very cute?? This set is $47 W or $33 C.
There is also the Color Me Happy Card Kit. This kit includes card stock and all embellishments to make 16 cards. Cost is $41 which is not bad for $2.60 per card. You would need to buy the stamp set separately to use with this set.

Thank you. 🙂
I finally had a chance to quickly play with this new stamp set Brightly Lit. I like it as it is something a little different for Christmas. Not that we have lamp posts like these ones but that’s OK.
Usually when I first play with a set I head to Pinterest and CASE a card. For this card I CASED one of Amanda’s cards at the Craftspa.com. You can see her card HERE.
I liked it as it had a masked sponged background. This was my version.
To create your sponged area: first cut a rectangle in your piece of copy paper. I used the Stampin’ Trimmer to do this. You could cut any shape you like with the Framelits too. Below is the rectangle I had. It is 2cm border each side (or 3/4″). Have the piece of Copy paper the same size as your card mat (whisper white) to be sure you cover the whole piece. You can adhere the piece on your card with some non-permanent adhesive in a couple of spots or hold the frame in place where you are sponging at the time so it doesn’t move.
I will try to do a video soon but just a note with the sponging: Start with your lighter colour and start off the inside framed area each time you pick up ink. Move in a circular motion from the outside moving in and along. I used Marina Mist. Then pick up a darker colour and just sponge near the edge in a circular motion once again. This time I used Dapper Denim. You can lift off an edge carefully and see how it is looking if you like to. You want to leave a lighter area in the middle.
To finish the card I adhered this to a Dapper Denim card base. Then add the light post and lamps cut from Smoky Slate. The centre lights were cut from Daffodil Delight. The sentiment stamped in Real Red and then cut with the matching Framelits. I added a Silver Taffeta bow to finish.
I have another card with this set to share next time.
The Brightly Lit Bundle is available in my store Now -> HERE for $72. Please use the HOST CODE: HSVFAXRX
Another retired set that will be leaving us very soon is ‘Kinda Eclectic’. I am a little sad about this one. I must say I haven’t used it too much recently but I did use it a lot when it first came out.
This card was the Make And Take everyone made at the Catalogue launch back in 2014 when it was released. The original post is HERE.
These were the Thank You bags I made at that launch with the set. 🙂
This next card I was pleased how it turned. I think it has been popular on Pinterest to as it has been repinned 1.4K times!
This card is one of my most recent makes with this set. I only made these late last year for some customer cards. You can see that post HERE.
This set is still available to buy but don’t wait long. You can order it in store HERE. Wood mount $49 Clear Mount $33.
Have a great weekend. It looks like it could be a wet one here this weekend. But not much time for crafting though. (or maybe just a little …)
I have wanted to make a Bendi card for some time. I had actually forgotten about it until I saw it on Splitcoaststampers last week. I thought this would be a great idea for this week’s Colour Inkspirations Challenge #07 and Carousel Birthday set might just work well for it. Why not use it too when it will be leaving us very soon. Boo Hoo!
So here are the colours for this week.
And here is my card…
Can’t you just hear that Carnival music playing. 🙂
If you would like to make your own Bendi card then you can find the tutorial HERE on Splitcoaststampers.com.
Just a tip with the tutorial: I spent a lot of time stressing about where to line the slits up and how long the tabs should be. Don’t worry too much about it though. If you mark the pencil lines as it say on the tutorial. Mark the tabs in first that will slide in your slits. Make them how wide or the angle you want then cut the tabs. Then line up the tabs on the pencil line where the slit is to be and mark the widest part of the tab in pencil on the line. I then cut the slits with my Stampin’ Trimmer.
Have fun making your own,
