New Stuff

I got my box full of my Preview Catalog order and have been having a ball since! I have three cards made from it and thought I would share.

The Heartfelt Thanks card didn't scan very well so the coloring is way off. You can see the actual colors if you look in the Preview Catalog though. I used Heartfelt Thanks stamp set. I've been wanting this one for a LONG time but kept putting off buying it. I finally did with my Preview order. The cardstock used is Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, and Whisper White. The Classic ink I used are Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, Garden Green, and Close to Cocoa. I also used the ticket corner punch.

This next card uses one of the Level 2 Hostess Sets that will be in the new catalog. It is called In the Spotlight. I also used the Hugs and Wishes set out of the Preview catalog. The cardstock is Whisper White, Soft Sky, and Soft Sky Prints Designer Series Paper. The ink is Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Purely Pomegranate. I used dimensionals to raise the flower and flower center off of the card. The scallop edge was made with the corner rounder and the scallops were pierced with the paper piercer out of the Crafter's Tool Kit.

I loved making this card. It's my favorite of the 3 so far. I found a sketch in my Demonstrator Planner to use for the layout. This is made with Baroque Motifs. I used Very Vanilla, Purely Pomegranate, and Baroque Background Designer Series Paper. It is stamped with Old Olive and Purely Pomegranate. I used the distress tool from the Cutter Kit for the cardstock edges. I just tore the edges of the designer paper. The flower has one of the new Rhinestone brads for the center. It doesn't show up very well in my scan but it is the yellow one. The flower is raised up with a dimensional and then the whole card stock piece is raised off of the card base with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoy these and I'll post more as I get them done.
