Hi all! Welcome to the Your Next Stamp October 2014 New Release Hop and New Website Launch! You should have come from Deborah's blog, if not, you'll want to start at Tracy's blog because you won't want to miss a stop!
We have a bunch of new stamp sets and dies this month and I’m super excited because we also have a new website!! The address is the same, but it’s completely redone!
I love making things for Winter/Christmas and this release is full of goodies to help with my crafting! My favorite set though, has nothing to do with either. It’s called Scribbled Alphabet and I designed it!! Yippee!! I so love it when my ideas come to life and I get to play with them and share them with you! It’s a really fun set that will work to many any sentiment for any occasion or holiday, so have fun with it!
Well, enough chatter – let’s get on with the show!
For my first project I have a seemingly simple card, but it’s got some tricks and technique thrown in:
The tag is actually mounted on foam tape and the flourishes on the tag exactly match the flourishes on the white panel. Here’s another view so you can see there really is dimension:
My second project is a spinner card:
I stamped the snowflake with Memento black ink and colored a bit with Copics. Then I went over it with a clear Wink of Stella pen and then a coating of Glossy Accents. The sentiment is also from the set and I embossed it with silver EP. The strip of snowflakes at the bottom is actually part of the patterned paper – that little throw-away strip that’s at the bottom of most 12x12 papers!
