I do hope this post finds everyone having a peaceful Christmas!
There is often a lull between Christmas and New Year I find, which make it perfect timing for our next Inspire Create Stamping Challenge! Challenge 008!
We have a sketch challenge !
We have a brand new catalogue launching on the 3rd January with Saleabration (free goodies) and to say I'm a tad excited is a bit of an understatement! So I thought it would be perfect to give you a glimpse of a couple of the new products with you.
I have used the new Tutti Frutti Suite to make my card. I picked out the Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist in the papers for my card. It is simple to put together. My base is in Lemon Lime Twist. Then a layer of Whisper White and the top layer is some of the new DSP. I have added some of the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon under the banner.
Aren't the papers gorgeous! Full of fresh colours. It is a 6 x6 paper stack. 48 sheets. 12 designs, 4 of each.
And if you want an alternative, the B sides are just lovely!
My strawberries are stamped in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist from the new Fruit Basket stamp set. And I have used the "you are just the sweetest" sentiment from the set too. I stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and cut the sentiment out in a square from the Stitched Shape Framelit dies.
I punched the stamped strawberries out using the new Itty Bitty fruit punches. The punches were what drew me to the suite initially. I love all things mini!
Did you notice that there is no white edge around the punched shape that there often is? Thats because the puch is ever so slightly smaller than the stamped image. This is perfect as it also means that it is less important for your stamping to be completely aligned.
Do you see? Genius!
I have also used the new Tutti-Frutti Adhesive backed sequins. They come in fabulous colours!
Do you see the little clear dots too? These are new and come in a pack of two different sizes plus raindrops. I think they make the fruit look very juicy 😄
I stamped "friend" inside in Lemon Lime Twist ink with the little heart stamped in Real Red. I added another strawberry for fun too. I love this stamp set. Its going to be perfect for lots of things.
To see what the rest of the Design Team at the Inspire. Create. Stamping Challenges have come up with for this sketch challenge visit here. You can see all the entries too. It is fun to play along. Do have a go. We'd love to have you.
You will be able to order from the new Spring/Summer catalogue and Saleabration leaflet from January 3rd. I will be sending out copies to customers just after Christmas, who have ordered from me in the last few months. If you would like one do get in touch. I'd be happy to send you a complimentary copy.
