Just for You

Yet another card using Work of Art - I promise, I will be using other stamp sets to make cards soon, but I can't get enough of this one :-)

This was heavily inspired by this card I found on Pinterest (you can click through to see the original artist's blog as well, if you like).  The idea of using the dot from Work of Art to make a simple background appealed to me as simple and effective, and so it turned out to be!

While I love the colours on the original card, I opted for something a little more subtle, combining Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate with the new In Color (and personal favourite) Blackberry Bliss.

I also dug through my stash and found my Coastal Cabana thick baker's twine to top the tag.

I might seem to be pushing this stamp set a little, but that's mostly because I haven't got around to buying anything else from the new catalogue yet (I know! I have to fix that!).

It's a Work of Art!

Of all the lovely new stamp sets in the 2014-15 Annual Catalogue, there was one which I just knew I had to get my hands on - Work of Art.

At first glance, it doesn't look like much, but if you have a look around the web you will see hundreds of amazing creations made using this set.

Here's one thing you can do - use one of the shorter "brush strokes" to create a bright, fun flower :-)

I also cracked open a couple of the new In Colors for this one - Tangelo Twist, which is a bright, deep orange, and Mossy Meadow, a dark olive green.

NEW! 2014-15 Annual Catalogue is now LIVE!

Yes, it's true - it's July 1, and that means that the new 2014-15 Annual Catalogue is now open for business!

You can check out my Online Store for all your goodies, or take a look at it all in one place by downloading the PDF :-)

Email me if you'd like a copy of your own to flick through.  We all know that an electronic copy is nice to have in an emergency, but nothing beats a paper catalogue to browse through, bookmark, fold the corners over, write in... you know what I mean.

Retirement List now available in the Online Store

I posted the other day about the glitch in the Online Store that meant that the whole Retirement List wasn't showing under the correct heading - just letting you know that this has now been fixed.  You only have a few days left to grab these retiring goodies - and remember, some are heavily discounted!

Check it out now!

Holiday Catalogue Carry Over

Some people (well, not me) are super organised and like to get their Christmas stamping started mid-year.  With that in mind, you might like to have a look at the list of items which are still available from the 2013 Holiday Catalogue - click here to check out a PDF of the items you can buy, and order through my Online Store or if you prefer, email me to place your order.

These carryover items are only available until August 27 (after that, keep your eye out for a new Holiday Catalogue!)

Another Pinspired post

Just a little something I whipped up ... well, actually,  it took a lot longer than I'd expected, but that was mostly sponging each punched flower, and holding it together layer by layer as the glue dried.  The end result was totally worth it, though ...

Here's the pin that inspired this tag.  Hers is so much nicer, but I'm still happy with my little effort.  Some more practice and maybe I can get as gorgeous a result as my Pinspiration!
