I was so excited when I saw Suzanne Cannon’s new die set with the lovely, open flourished ornament frame and three words: Peace, Joy, Love. It fits right in with one of my favorite projects – making lightweight, durable, flat Shimmer Sheetz ornaments to send instead of cards. They require only a standard envelope and postage. And Shimmer Sheetz is waterproof so the ornaments can be cleaned with a damp cloth if they get dusty.
My first thought was to make three different Christmas ornaments, but then I had another idea: Make one ornament with the two words that felt seasonal and fit nicely within the open area of the ornament (Peace and Joy) and use the third word (Love) for an ornament suitable for birthdays and anniversaries, baby showers and Valentine’s Day! I added a Stitched Circle to the first, a Stitched Heart and a butterfly to the second.
Here’s the how-to:
Hello Crafty Friends! Kathy Jo stopping by to share a card created using two beautiful new dies designed by the talented Suzanne Cannon. Have you seen her new release this week? She has created some amazing dies…and stamps! I have been using Suzanne’s gorgeous calligraphy stamps for years and it is fantastic news that Elizabeth Craft Designs is now offering Suzanne Cannon stamp sets. Woo-who!
The card I am sharing today uses the new “Soar” die and Butterfly Flourish die set. (The sets are perfect together!)
When I sat down to write this blog post, I wasn’t sure where to start! It’s Suzanne here today sharing two very special new items. The A Way With Words collection is growing to include six stamp sets! We’re going to have so much fun combining stamped phrases and images with the dies. You’ll have lots of new ways to create and share your messages of love and encouragement.
The A Way With Words die collection is expanding, so you will have even more amazing word combinations and there are new designs that aren’t words but have lots of calligraphic flair. I wanted to share one of those with you today.
I’m so excited to use this die and stamp combination; this is the Butterfly Flourish die set and the sentiment is just one of the stamps in the Soar Collection.
Here is how you can make this card!
