As you may know, Demonstrators are able to see upcoming catalogues in advance, to help them plan their purchases for upcoming events. So, back in April, when we had the chance to see the new Annual Catalogue, I fell in love with the At Home with You Bundle, which became a “I must have that!” once I saw the actual stamps/framelits at OnStage in Toronto.

We created this card in my June classes. I really like sharing cards with my stampers that look difficult to make, but really aren’t. This one is a bit more labour intensive, but only because there is watercolouring on the main images. Otherwise it’s pretty easy to make.
The brick background is a wonderful addition to the card, and stunningly easy to create. Simply use a brayer to add ink to one side of the Brick Wall embossing folder, and run the card stock through the Big Shot. In this case, we added Crumb Cake ink, and rolled it onto the side of the embossing folder that has the raised bricks (as opposed to the raised grout). Stampers carefully placed their Crumb Cake card stock, closed the folder, ran it through the Big Shot, and then WOW’d when they opened the folder to see their finished piece.
So, what did I use?
*Note* You can order the At Home with You Bundle to get both the stamps and dies at a 10% discount (145351, $64.75). I can’t imagine not wanting both, as they work SO well together. The best framelit has to be the one that cuts three sides of the door so that in can open on the card!
