Elegant Lines

I am hosting a workshop tonight and thought I'd share what we'll be making! First of all, let me share a bit about embossing folders. The folders are great because you can emboss your card front knowing the placement will be just right.

I love the new Elegant Lines embossing folder, the Elegant Soiree DSP, the Victoria Crochet trim and the Antique Brads. So, guess what we're using tonight! And I am running a special: purchase the embossing folder, the DSP, the trim, Baja Breeze cardstock, Crumb Cake cardstock and Neutrals textured DSP cardstock (just over $50) you'll get the Antique Brads for FREE! Here are all the cards I've made with these products so far.

This last one is the Make & Take project for tonight. Super quick and easy - why we love the Big Shot!

Stamp Set: Three Little Words (although I will use Watercolor Trio tonight)
Ink: Baja Breeze
Paper: Baja Breeze, Elegant Soiree DSP, Very Vanilla
Embellishments: Victoria Crochet Trim
Tools: Scallop Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Big Shot, Elegant Lines embossing Folder

Using the New Colors

Oops, it's been over two weeks since I've posted. Got busy with life, I guess! :) But now I'm back to stamping - putting together another custom ELM Designs order (yay!!) and trying to make some samples with the NEW stuff.

I just put this together in a late night stamping frenzy. These are 3 of the 6 new colors that are now in our Core Collections: Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Early Expresso. The more I use this Circle Circus set, the more I'm liking it. This particular flower one, is my favorite of the 10 stamps in the set! The words are taken from a set that is a Level 3 Hostess set in this 2010-2011 catalog.

Stamp Sets: Circle Circus, Occasional Quotes
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Early Espresso
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Tools: 1" Circle punch, Scallop Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Word Window punch
Embellishments: 5/16" Jumbo Brads Neutrals in Whisper White
