This card is using the Cheery Lynn heart dies, a fern one and then a Spellbinders die. Dies are HOT right now. I picked up a few new lines at show along with new stamp lines and lots and lots and lots of new. It is always so fun after show when things start to arrive. We have you spoiled here at Picture This though since we have new arriving all the time, all year long.

The Chicago skyline from our hotel. And the awesome Medleys we have at Picture This by McRice....
meet Ron and Nanc. We hung out with them Friday in their room for a bit. We had cut some state shapes with out Pazzle for them out of their new papers for their booth at Craft Mania. The 'cheese' paper is going to be sooo much fun for Wisconsin diecuts, pages and designs. There is one with a moose and its baby twins....Ron took that photo in Alaska. And all of their products are made in the USA. I love being able to offer so many vendors in my store that I can say that for.
The HoHo Christmas line is fun so just remember when it arrives....get it before it is gone.
Then met Jillian and her parents. She started her own stamp line at age of 10 !!! She is now 13 and has over 80 sets and some exclusive Spellbinders dies. So I welcomed them as a new vendor to my store and I know you will like her designs. Cool story.. cool kid.
We seen ALL the new releases from 36 vendors yesterday so our heads are swimming with all that. Lots of very neat releases. It will be hard to limit my purchases. Wouldn't an unlimited budget be the cats meow?
We went to Creative Imaginations and Quick Quotes showing today off-site and more must haves. Dawn talked me into mixed media necklaces to do as a class at the store. Tonight we have the Moxxie Party.
So we will try to keep you all posted on the new and cool.

For this card we used the Sweet William die and one of their small flower dies to create the beautiful flower. The corner design is one of the new ones from Cheery Lynn. I can hardly wait to see what they release for new dies at the trade show. The stamp is a Great Impressions stamp.

The doily is a Cheery Lynn and I used the metal plate for this since it has a lot of detail....then you just flick your finger against it and most of the pieces fall out into your garbage. The edges were inked on the twig, doily and banner with Tea Dye ink.
Supplies: Cheery Lynn doily, Spellbinders poinsettia, MS twig punch, Kaiser Kraft pearls, Tea Dye and Festive Berry Distress inks, Judith stamp, CS.

I use the metal plate shim (cuttlehug) when using the lattice and any of the dies with a lot of detail or are larger in size. It makes the removal of the pieces easier and the cuts crisper. It does crank through your Cuttlebug harder so don't be alarmed and you will hear your plates crackle. No worries.
We also just started the PT Shoppe too for all of our blog followers who don't have the great opportunity of just running to the store to buy the needed supplies when they see an idea they love. (they know we are just a phone call away and ship out all the time) But we started the Shoppe so others know of this awesome service too. I just posted all the supplies for this card today over on the PT Shoppe.
Supplies: Tim Holtz Alternations Base, Mini Reindeer & Tree, Brick & Woodgrain embossing folder. Spellbinders Poinsettia die, Cheery Lynn Window C die and Metallic CS and text weight.
Stay cool....its a hot one out there this week!!!!
