The Bloomin Heart Bundle was the first Bundle to catch my eye in the new Catalogue.
The first card was cased from the catalogue and some of the ladies made it my Catalogue launch evening last week. They loved it. It is such fun matching the delicate Flower Stamps with the beautifully intricate die cut.
I also bought the Number of Years Bundle which goes perfectly with the heart die cut to make a 25th anniversary Card. You can't cut numbers out of Glimmer Cardstock with a Cricut or Silhouette Machine so these number dies are a great addition to my card making stash.
Lastly another case from the New Catalogue using Blushing Bride Cardstock and some of the new Love Blossoms DSP Stack.
One of my Downline, Magda, came over today to make card samples with some of the new stamp sets that I have got from the new Catalogue. We both enjoyed using the Rose Garden Bundle as there are so many techniques that you can use with it.
The first card is cased from Patty Bennet at www.pattystamps.com The rose is cut out of Gold Cardstock with the Framelit Die. I then adhered it to Watercolour Paper before colouring it with an Aquapainter and ink. I used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride and So Saffron for the rose.
For the second card I cut the rose out in Whisper White before colouring it with ink and a sponge Dauber. The colours used were Blackberry Bliss, Perfect Plum, Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz.
In the third card I stamped the rose image in Clear Versamark and then applied Clear Embossing Powder before heat setting it. I colored it in with an Aquapainter and Rose Red, Melon Mambo and Old olive Inks.
The colours used in the third card are Melon Mambo, Rose Red and Old Olive.
