Have some fun with the embossing paste

Have you seen that we now have embossing paste in the catalogue.  This is a great medium for adding some texture to your projects.  You can even add some ink into the paste to give it a splash of colour before you start creating.



You can create fabulous backgrounds when you use the paste with one of our stencils (stencils are 6x6").



To learn more about our embossing paste and how versatile this product is, grab a cuppa and watch Brandi tell (and show) you more.

Christmas in September

Here is a card that I made with some of the new products launched in the autumn/winter catalogue.  For my preorder, I had ordered the merry music papers, the snowflake sentiments bundle, cheers to the year stamps and year of cheer washi tape (slightly addicted to washi tape, so a must have), and some other products fell into the basket.

 



For this card, I have used the merry music paper to create a background.  This paper is great as you can sing along while you are crafting!  The green stripe, this is a scrap that I had from the coffee break papers.  I stamped the 'circle' with a stamp from the cheers to the year set.  The snowflake, this was cut with a die from the swirly snowflakes thinlits set, the die is a border die and I snipped out the snowflake.  The trim is the very vanilla lace trim. The swirl is cut from a die in the same set in our lovely gold paper.  Then it was simply a case of layering up.
