Make a cup of tea & settle in ... there's a lot to share this week !
Weekly Card Kit :
This week's kit is all about SEQUINS !! They are a hot trend this year with many designers selling packages of sequins to match their paper lines. I just pulled out a few of the $1.49 multi packs I have here in the store & went to town !! They are inexpensive, very easy to use, and add a little somethin' somethin' !!
So, as usual, you get the materials for all 3 cards for just $5. Leave a comment or email if you would like any saved.
|A "secret" message ...|
|A sequined butterfly !|
*Please note : the sequins provided for the butterfly vary in colour in each kit.
|And a happy little sprinkle of sequins !!|
And ... now onto the new things !!!!
* Penny Black Stamps & Dies:
So, first of all, I am going to share a photo of a sample board that I ordered. This shows several cards made using the new stamps. My next task will be to try to duplicate them so we can make them in a workshop . They are really pretty !
|Stamps used in Card #1 ... background stamp & focal image.|
Sold out ... more on order.
|Background stamp, focal image.|
|Border stamp used above and below focal image.|
|The "Twirl" stamp on the right was stamped repeatedly to make the background. |
The focal image is made up of one of the large tags from the other set as well as a smaller tag & word.
|Great dies !!|
Let me show you some of the other examples shown on the packing ...
Aren't they pretty ? You too can be an artist !!
* NEW from Studio Calico ... great new wooden veneer cut outs. They are wonderful on cards or sprinkled over layouts. Paint them, ink them, stamp them, glitter them ... And then , thinking outside of paper crafting ... they must have 100s of uses !!
** NOTE : the quantity is indicated in the upper left corner of each package . You get MANY in each package !!!
