Halloween Cards

Hi friends!  Today I am sharing a ton of new samples with Halloween, Christmas and Summer themes.  The new Beach Collection dies from Impression Obsession just arrived and they are soooo cool!  Stop in and see them for yourself!

As you read through the card descriptions today, you will see the word "retired."  Just as my store cannot carry every product neither can manufacturers continue to carry all the products they have every released.  Often times I don't know a product has been retired until I order it again.  SO if you have your eye on a certain die, my advice is to buy it sooner versus later becaue once it's gone, it's gone!

These dies let you add a stitched line (curved or straight, several stitching lengths); little cross stitches; scribbly stitches; and piercing holes.  There are so many ways to use them: a border, a quilting pattern background, an accent stitched line.  The dies don't cut the paper, they just add the accent line.  Both are in stock now but they will sell out so reserve your now!
