Something New

Welcome!! Annette here for those of you who are new to my blog.  This is a BRAND NEW Group of stampers and an Exciting new Blog Hop Group!!! So Excited to be asked by Angie MacKenzie to participate!! Grab your favourite drink..sit back and hop along to see all the Gorgeous Inkspiration we have planned for you!!

Something New is this month's theme!  Which is both so easy to do because of the Brand New Catalogue that went live on Jan. 5.  But it is also difficult when deciding which new thing to choose!!

One of the first things to catch my eye in the catalogue was the Fine Art Floral Suite and the Gorgeous products included. Stunning dsp, gorgeous acetate, beautiful sparkly ribbon and a Fun new product!!  Ooh and I almost forgot my new favourite Embossing folder!!!

I hope you are not overloaded by all the photo's...but I felt like you needed to see the products!!

I chose a couple pieces of the dsp and some of the acetate and co-ordinating yardstick and a sketch and created 2 Stunning cards if I do say so myself..but honestly these products make it so easy!!
Colours used are Flirty Flamingo and Pretty Peacock.

Pretty Peacock card;

The first layer is the same colour cardstock, dry embossed with the Subtle Embossing folder.  In the center of the card I used a 4 x 3" piece of pool party cardstock.  Then cut a piece of dsp 2 x 3", adhered it to the cardstock, then emboss with the painted texture 3D embossing folder.  I attached it to the first layer and wrapped a ribbon to the entire piece and tie my bow.  I die cut the largest stitched circle out of the specialty acetate.  the flower is stamped out of Poppy Parade then I used Versamark and the heat and stick powder to add gold leaf gilding and tucked it all behind the ribbon.  I cut the leaves off the stem to tuck them around the flower and ribbon for more texture.  then added metallic pearls.

Flamingo card;
The first layer is the same colour cardstock, dry embossed with the Parisan folder.  In the center of the card I used a 4 1/8" x 3 1/8" piece of blushing bride.  Then cut another piece 2 x 3" and emboss with the painted texture 3D embossing folder.  on the right is a 2 x 3" piece of dsp and the co-ordinating Specialty acetate adhered with a piece of tearing tape under the flower.
I used a white 2 1/4" circle.  I used the new blending brushes and swirled some pink in the center.  Then I used Firty Flamingo to stamp the flower, then versa mark and heat and stick powder to add the gold leaf gilding.  the leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzaz and I added a Bow and some metallic pearls to finish.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and they have inspired you to stamp and create.

  13. Greetings to the general public, i want to inform the public how i was cured of HERPES Simplex Virus by a Doctor called Dr. Omola i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex whicmptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how Dr. Omola cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, i am a free person now without problem, my HERPES result came out negative. I pray for you Dr. Omola God will give you everlasting life, you shall not die before your time for being a sincere and great man. Am so happy, you can also contact him if you have any problem, Email Address or whatsapp or call him +2348118116254.thank me later.

  14. My health was horrible before I decided to try the Protocol Of taking Dr. Omola pure herbal mixture. I felt there was no hope for my health and I was to try the Protocol, thinking it wouldn’t work because I have visited so many hospital but same result. However, I was convinced by a Instagram friend to try the herbal medicine because I wanted to get rid of Herpes virus. The herbal mixture that was given to me was really quick and easy to take, within 2 week I was fully cured from Herpes. The herbal medicine really work and I will like to share this great doctor contact with you all email him or WhatsApp +2348118116254 you won't regret it, I promise.
