Here’s a final sneak peek from the Spring catalogue before it goes live tomorrow!
And I’ll be taking part tomorrow, in the SUDSOL Blog Tour – SAVE THE DATE – Feb 1, 2013. We’ll have oodles and oodles of projects and inspiration for you – all using products from the Spring Catalogue and Sale-a-bration line up, so please stop by again tomorrow.
Now you might be wondering what’s new on today’s card? Not the stamp set … Not the circle pennant die … It’s actually the canvas that the cross stitch is stamped onto! I wasn’t sure that the single 12″ x 12″ Canvas Creations (129375) sheet would really be enough, but you only need a small piece of it to provide a great accent for your card. A little goes a long way.
A small Primrose Petals square card was matted with Very Vanilla and then with more Primrose Petals card. The embroidery hoop from the Hoop La La stamp set (W126250 or C126252) was stamped onto the canvas with Soft Suede ink first as a positioning template. Then the welcome image and sentiment were stamped inside the hoop with Raspberry Ripple ink and the needle stamped with Basic Gray ink before cutting out the centre circle by hand. After die cutting the Scallop Trim circle pennant with the Perfect Pennants die (123126) from Very Vanilla card, the Stampa-a-ma-jig (101049) was used to stamp the embroidery hoop again, in the centre of it. A small piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine (123125) was adhered behind the canvas, aligned with the needle and then the canvas was adhered to the stamped pennant. Finally the pennant was popped up on dimensionals in the centre of the card front.
This is the card that I’m sending to new team members during Sale-a-bration to welcome them to our Paper Dolls team. If you have a long wish list from the new Spring catalogue, then why not join up as a demonstrator, you’ll get to choose £162.50 worth of product for your starter kit (all your choice) and pay only £99! What a bargain! And then you get discount on any other purchases you make whilst you are a demonstrator. You don’t have to hold a workshop if you don’t want to, you can be a “hobby demo”, simply ordering for yourself and perhaps a few friends. On the other hand, of you’d like to make your hobby pay for itself, then you can turn it into a business, all done at a pace to suit you! Just take a look here, email me, or give me a call on 0775 1133886 for more information, or sign up now!
