Lots to Share !!

Hi everyone !
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 .. I found enough paper to put together a dozen more of last week's kits ...

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 ! 
Let's look at them up close ...
Card #1

Stamps used in Card #1 ... background stamp & focal image.
Sold out ... more on order. 
Card #2

Background stamp, focal image. 
Card #3

Border stamp used above and below focal image.
Card #4

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. 
A few other stamps & dies that arrived ...
Great dies !!

Stencils ...
Stamps ...
Here's a great new style of stamp ... like an outline really. You stamp and then you can leave it as is or colour, paper piece, paint, Stickle, etc. So many possibilities.

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 !!!
Stars - solids
Stars - outlines & solids

Hearts & Arrows

Baby Things


Butterflies - imagine stamping on these !!

Boats & Anchors

And then chipboard Feathers.
Great embellishments !!
So ... I still have a whole stack of Graphic 45 papers to share so I think I'll come back tomorrow with those ... see you soon !!!
