That said, I do have some cards to show you! I got my first order from the new catalogue the other day (have you used the new hostess benefits program yet? It's wonderful!), and I couldn't wait to play! Unfortunately I challenged myself to tidy up everything I had out before opening new toys :)
We had a birthday this weekend, so I broke out one of the new hostess sets, Happiest Birthday Wishes, and made this card:
I attached some knotted ribbon and stuck the layers together with my snail. Then I got out my Lots of Tags sizzlets, used this oval sentiment (which fits the oval in the frame sizzlet perfectly - there's also a punch for this!) and cut it out, with an Island Indigo full tag behind, and added it using dimensionals. Finally I smooch-spritzed the card.
I also wanted to make a little card in similar colours for what I think is the cheapest stamp set in the new catalogue (bar the a la carte stamps). This one is called 'Kindness Matters' and has some beautiful butterflies. I love butterflies :) This one is also on a 3x3 More Mustard base, with a distressed-edge Very Vanilla layer, inks are Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo. I used some contraband grosgrain ribbon and an antique brad to finish it off.
This one luckily did not get smooch spritzed, but it hasn't been given away yet!
I do have more to post, but this is good for now. Adios!
