Tree Trimmings

Today's card is made from the new Tree Trimmings set, found on page 23 of the new catalogue. I can see myself using this set loads for my Christmas card this year. The new eyelet border punch has also been used along with the new scrummy real red striped grosgrain ribbon. The ribbon was held in place with a big crystal rhinestone from the pretties kit, these are also now available separately, see page 85.

New Catalogue has arrived...a week ago!

Well the new catalogue has been with us almost a week and I'm yet to show you anything made with the new goodies. This card has been made from one of the level three hostess sets from the new catalogue called "Garden Dreams" and it is a lovely set, well worth hosting a workshop for. The image was stamped in bashful blue ink and then chalked in the centre, which was layered up with dimensionals to give some depth. The card was finished off with some pearls from the pretties kit.
Stamps: Garden Dreams
Cardstock / Paper: Whisper White, Bashful Blue and Bashful Blue dsp
Ink: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Versamark
