Sneak Peek - 2016-17 Annual Catalogue - Affectionately Yours

I fell in love with this suite of goodies the moment I saw it!  There are some beautiful papers in the DSP pack and I love the little embossing folders! (There are two designs in the pack).

For this card I used the letterpress technique with Night of Navy ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I added one of the gorgeous Classy Designer buttons (carrying over from the current catalogue) that we were given at On Stage and I would have loved to have threaded it with the new Night of Navy Solid Bakers Twine!  Instead, I hunted through the sewing box I inherited from my mother and found a gorgeous old reel of Button Thread.  It's the wrong colour but, feeling sentimental, I used it anyway!  I hate to think how old it is!

For this card, I embossed a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and then used a sponge dauber to rub Whisper White Craft Ink over it.   The little matching stamped flower is from a stamp set that I received at On Stage, called Love & Affection.  It doesn't show in the picture, but I added clear Wink of Stella to the petals and gold Wink of Stella to the centre.  I punched it out with a 1 3/8" circle punch.

These are the new products I used:

Love & Affection stamp set               141545
