New catalogue is coming

The new seasonal catalogue is nearly here with the release date 28 January.  There are so many great new products in this catalogue, it's a must see for all crafters.  I have used the new Petite Petals punch, the Gold washi tape and the Gold sequin trim.  The Grid stamp has been gold embossed then one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps has been stamped using both gold and black.  After that a strip of each of the  3 new gold washi tapes have been attached to the base card before the wording from Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  The new Petite Petals flowers have been punched out in Basic Black to highlight the gold sequin.

By the Tide

I have been wanting to use try this stamp set for a long time and now with Christmas sadly behind us for another year this is a great time to create.  On the base card the coral has been embossed in gold, the other images are stamped in Baked Brown Sugar.  The photo doesn't do justice to the two different effects.  The lobster is also embossed in black.  I like to emboss first when I colour an image, though this doesn't always happen.

  Ihave also covered the button with Washi tape to highlight the colour of the lobster.
