The new catty is here & oh what fun! Nothing like a bit of forced isolation to give one lots of time to browse (& buy).
There are glorious suites of products in this lovely book, all coordinated in colours you'll love. There are five new In-colours that are bright & cheerful but hey - they'll be around for two more years so today I'm going to focus on the drama!
The Forever Greenery Suite is stunning. Full disclosure - I'm actually not a green person (hence the proliferation of blue cards in my classes) but this back-to-nature collection is a classic. There is a beautiful array of green shades from warm to cool & products for every aspect of paper crafting. There are even gold hoop embellishments & a large collection of gold foil die cuts to add a touch of elegance to the simplest of cards. Here I started with a super simple card which can be created by a beginner but has the look of an artist. The "Distinktive" images in the stamp set look hand painted. The Soft Seafoam card base & the added gold die-cut looks so classy!
The next card is geared for a casual stamper with a simple paper piecing technique under the gold laser cut specialty paper. Half inch strips of all shades of green cardstock are adhered to a Very Vanilla mat forming the front of this simple Z-fold card. Simple but snazzy don't you think?
This last card gave my die-cutting machine a workout! I die cut leaves in Whisper White & vellum the stamped & die-cut more leaves using Garden Green ink. The matching stamps & dies made this pretty easy but no one needs to know! I'm awaiting delivery of some lovely soft white ribbon from the suite so I just used up some bits of white ribbon from my stash. This card was designed by Dawn Griffith - so pretty I just had to CASE it.
If you are Canadian & in need of a catalogue let me know & I'll see that you get one. In the meantime you can download a copy from the picture on the sidebar.
I hope that you are getting a good balance of crafting & playing outdoors.
Stay well & stay in touch.
