Sneak Peek…Special Surprise…

Hello everyone

I have been working hard on some more sneak peeks.  Remember…in one of my last entries, I mentioned there was going to be a special surprise in the new catalogue – well take at look at the card below.  What can you see?  Yep, that’s right…it’s fabric!!!  Stampin’ Up! have added beautiful fabric to the range and I have been having a fabulous time using all my new pressies.  Now I get to include my love for sewing and fabric in my creations.

The card is inspired by a design by Angeline Yong. I made the heart out of one of the Flirtatious Designer fabrics.  The fabric comes in a pack of three and co-ordinates with the new Flirtatious Specialty Designer Paper pack.  I used one of the doily papers and this particular one is actually melon mambo (pumpkin pie is also included) but I decided I wanted a simple colour palette so simply turned it over and cut it out in a heart shape.  I used the new Lace Ribbon Border punch to punch the border which has been cut in half.  I then layered all the pieces together and finished off with hemp twine.   I used one of the new stamp sets for the sentiment with Wisteria Wonder  ink (also new) and that was about it.  I thought I had finished at that point but decided to have a break to get to the Canberra Craft Fair where I discovered the little heart pins.  These finished it off perfectly.
