A sneak peak
I’m sorry I haven’t been sharing with you as much of late but I seem to have been very busy – so busy that my pre-order sat on the floor in my craft room for a week before I got to open anything and have a look! So today I will share with you the first card I made using some of the great products in my pre-order – a simple Christmas card I made using the Reason for the Season stamp set. Now although I am showing new product, the catalogue does not go live until 1st September, so get your note pad out and start making a list. If you are anything like me it will be long!
I embossed Real Red card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed card to Whisper White card and wrapped it with the very beautiful (and new) Real Red 1/8″ Striped Ribbon. This ribbon comes in a pack of two ribbons with a Garden Green Striped Ribbon as well. I stamped the greeting which is from another new set called A Little Something using Old Olive ink. The Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Sahara Sand card. The image is stamped in three steps. First the outline of the flower which I stamped in our new archival Basic Gray ink. The flowers were stamped using Real Red ink and the leaves using Old Olive ink. I attached the image panel to Old Olive card and then to the card front using dimensionals. I also added a large Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the flower.
Inside I added a piece of Real Red card embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder which has a narrow strip of Old Olive card behind one long edge.
I love my first try using this stamp set and can’t wait to play with it a little more. One more fantastic thing is that the Reason for the Season stamp set is sold as a bundle with the Festive Flower Builder Punch which co-ordinates with some of the other leaves in the stamp set. Woo Hoo. Hooray for Bundles – you can save 15% by purchasing your supplies this way. If you don’t have a demonstrator please contact me so that I can arrange for you to get one.
Bye for now,
