A new day.....a new dawn...

Hi folks,

Today has been a long time coming.....its the first day of the new catalogue and boy are there loads of cool new things.  Check it out on-line or contact me to request a catalogue.

Hopefully you arrived from Alisons blog, I love the ornament, many of you will have seen it on the front of the Atumn/Winter catalogue.

To celebrate the launch some of the ladies on In Love With Stamping (ILWS) have organised a blog hop to showcase some of the great products in the new catalogue.

I made two different cards, one was Christmassy and the other a birthday card.



 
 
I used Cherry Cobbler card and the new tulle and the Early Espresso Core'dinations card.  I put Early Espresso card through the new Lacey Brocade embossing folder and then used the sanding system to take the top layer off to reveal the lighter colour underneath.  The Champagne glimmer paper is gorgeous and many of you might remember my love of the red one at the start of the year.  I used the 'Boho Blossoms' punch and the new 'Festival of Prints' paper to make the wreath.
 
 
 
 
 
This birthday card uses the new 2012-2014 In Colors, the card base is the Summer Starfruit.  In ink I used was Raspberry Ripple and Midnight muse.  The paper is from the 'Patio Party' Designer paper range.  The cake is made from the 'Make a cake' set, stamped in Versamark ink and then I brayered the ink over the top. The greeting is from the 'Itty Bitty Banners' set, then cut out using the matching Framelit die
 
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you like my cards.  The next blog along the hop is that of Gill Prescott.
 
 
If you have missed any, here's the links to all the blogs on the hop.
