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.
