Autumn-Winter Mini Sneak Peek

So…my pre-order of the Autumn-Winter Mini arrived last week and boy have I been having fun today! The best thing is it’s a long weekend here in Canberra which means more time to spend crafting. If only I didn’t have to do the housework! Anyway….enough about me.

You might remember one of my earlier posts where I had a go at marker layering. Today, I used this technique on the soon to be released Bordering on Romance stamp set. I kept the card fairly simple to keep the focus on the colouring. I enjoyed using this technique with this set so much I just couldn’t stop at one. So, I decided to make an in-colour set. What do you think?

The Bordering on Romance stamp set is from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue which will be available April 1. It’s packed with super sweet stamps (of course), delicious designer series papers, fancy fabric, to die for dies, elegant embossing folders and fabulous flourishes.  I know you are going to love it.
