Countdown to new Catalogue, Day 9

Countdown to new Catalogue, Day 9   Today's card uses heaps of new products. Most notably the Happy Birthday thinlit. I love this product, it's the perfect size for a card front. I've layered one in the new Wood Textures DSP (6x6" stack) and one in black to give a 3D effect. Next is the new Oh My Stars embossing folder and the Copper Trim. The final new product on this card is the Eastern Palace Speciality DSP which is available now in a couple of bundles with the other products in the suite.
 
I have copies of the catalogue available now. If you would like to get a jump on writing your wish list, contact me and I will get one out to you.
More tomorrow,
Happy Stampin,

Colour Inkspiration

I found time this week to participate in the colour challenge at Colour Inkspiration #109.

This week's colours are Dapper Denim, Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler.

I inked up one of the new hostess sets in the 2017-2018 catalogue called Feathery Friends.

I stamped the images in Stazon Black on Shimmery White cardstock and coloured with Blender pens and inks. I cut out the images and mounted them on Dimensionals on Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Petal Burst textured Embossing folder.
This stamp set can be yours for free when you host a qualifying party from the 1st of June.
 
Happy Stampin,

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue, which is available 1st June. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

The first project I have for you uses the new Crate Die and the new Wood Textures DSP, which comes in a 6"x6" stack. The foliage is from the Jar of Love set. The other new products I have used on the front of the card are one of the In Colour Bitty Bows in Berry Burst and the Powder Pink edges done with the Ticket Tear Border Punch.




These self adhesive bows are extremely easy to use.

On the inside of the card I have used one cut out from the crate die. Usually, to make a complete crate, you will need two pieces. I adhered the crate to the inside of the card and used an addition piece as a brace, and to attach some of the foliage to. I will be creating a tutorial as to how this was done shortly. 
Contact me if you would like one when available.



















The colours I used for the flowers are Berry Burst, Powder Pink, and Fresh Fig, and for the foliage, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand.

The second card I have to show you features a set that caught my attention as soon as I saw the Catalogue. It's called Bright Wishes and this image of a wishing well is perect for colouring. I used Blender Pens on Shimmery White paper this time, but you could also use the Watercolour Pencils or an Aquapainter with the inks on watercolour paper..
Once again I have use a piece of Wood Textures DSP, Love this paper!
On the inside I stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink, and softly coloured the flowers in Powder Pink and a few leaves in Pear Pizzazz.

I hope you enjoyed my little preview from the upcoming catalogue, there's plenty more to come. Next stop on the hop is Caroline.
