A New Year with New Products!By
Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season filled with fun, friends and family.
I spent the entire month of December sick, sick, sick!! I had a sinus and throat infection that would NOT leave despite 2 treatments with penicillin. it certainly did not help that I was so busy I couldn’t get the rest I needed. So that is exactly what I did during the holidays – I rested.
So needless to say, absolutely no stamping or creating was going on in my life during the last month but I did manage to find some energy last week and get back to it. There were SO many new and wonderful products that had been sitting unopened on my desk for a month!! It definitely felt good to craft and I can’t wait to share it all with you – let’s get started!!
This card is FULL of wonderful pretty new things!! First I used the new Tea for Two DSP series pack found on page 3 of the 2013 Occasions Catalogue. I also used a paper doily (page 5) to soften up the background and the wonderful new Delicate Details Lace Tape (page 3) on the bottom. I LOVE that stuff!! It’s beautifully soft and ornate and is sticky on one side to make it user friendly.
Some other new products used include Core’dination Cardstock in Primrose Petals color which is textured and sandable – so fun!! You’ll find this and other colors of cardstock on page 12 of the Occasions Catalogue. Also featured on this page and my card is a new embellishment – the Designer Builder Brad. It’s very light and quite flat making it easy to use on projects. Any image or color can be punched and placed in the center of the brad with an epoxy bubble placed over top the image completing the look.
And that’s not all!! Here is the full supply list for this card:
Stamps – Itty Bitty Banners
Ink & Paper – Tea for Two DSP, Primrose Petals, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Big Shot – Bitty Banners Framelits, Hearts Collection Framelits, Hearts a Flutter Framelits, Elegant Lines embossing folder
Accessories – Delicate Details Lace Tape, subtles button, linen thread, doily, piercing tools, Designer Builder Brad
