Busy July

July is a really busy month for me with LOTS of birthdays and anniversaries so I'll be busy in the craft room creating lots of cards all month.   I have a couple to share today which are totally random.


This one uses four related products from My Favorite Things which I just adore and know I will be using a lot of all the teenagers in our life.   The background is created using distress inks and the equalizer stencil.  The headphones and MP3 player are die cut from black and grey card and then a sentiment and musical note from keep on rockin' stamp set that co-ordinates with it all.


This anniversary card started with the strip of paper from the new Dots and Stripes Sorbet paper pack from MFT - it's sometimes fun to pick a paper to be your inspiration.   A strip of that behind a white panel topped wit the gorgeous flower from the Lotus set and leaves from Leafy both by Waffle Flower give a focal point - in this instance embossed in white and coloured with inktense pencils.  The sentiment and the teeny-tiny hearts which pull the colour of the paper across the design are from Mama Elephant's Bountiful Blessings.



 NEWS FROM THE STORE

  • We've had new releases from Mama Elephant, Reverse Confetti and Newton's Nook this week.
  • We've also had massive restocks on Altenew inks and dies as well as some of the out of stock stamps.  They have another new release in a week or 2 so I will attempt to re-order out of stock products then but please note they have very slow turn-around times so I have no idea how long it will take to get them in store. 
  • The new release from Neat and Tangled will ship early next week and be with us by next weekend fingers crossed.
