As a demonstrator we get to see and preorder items before they are released to the general public. Since the NEW Autumn / Winter catalogue has been launched to us I had placed my order which arrived yesterday. Wow i can't even begin to tell you about all the fabulous bits and pieces i have in my box of goodies.
Within my Christmassy preorder though i had also got the 'Oh so eclectic' stamp set, matching 'Eclectic layers' framelits and the new embossing paste (all in our annual catalogue). Why did i wait so long to get my hands on these? I'm totally in love with the new paste, so easy to use and such great effects for texture on cards.
The paste comes in a tub and is white, but as you can see in my project i have coloured it using my ink refills. It may seem obvious but better to mention it than have a major oops moment...colour just a small amount of the paste once you have taken it out of the tub..otherwise all of your paste will be that colour and you won't be able to experiment further with other options. You only need a small amount of the paste, it does go a long way. Secondly keep the tub lid closed as soon as you have taken out what you need as it dries super fast and thirdly if using it with the decorative masks make sure you clean these off as soon as possible. I popped mine into a plastic tub of water as soon as i had spread the paste over my project and then whilst the paste was drying fully i cleaned up the mask properly. It does sound a faff but honestly it takes 2 minutes and the effect i think is well worth it.
The colours i have chosen are 'Pear Pizzazz', 'Sweet Sugarplum' and 'Soft Sky'.
I stamped out the images then cut using the 'big shot' and matching dies.
I really like the effect of layering the leaves and flowers on top of each other, it's so pretty.
Have you tried any of these products yet? I'd love to see your creations too.

I am the first to admit i have an issue hoarding crafting products, especially papers! When they come packaged and look so pretty it's hard to chop them up to use. I always end up with retired papers left over each time a new catalogue is released and they end up sitting in my paper store unused. So with this in mind i decided to start using some of them up and made a start on some Christmas cards. Santa's workshop was such a fun set of papers, especially if making cards for younger members of the family. I used a larger piece of dsp for the background but then also cut another strip with elves on to use as the main focus of the card. Mounted onto real red card and then some glimmer paper to cut the word 'Christmas' from adds a little bit of festive bling and sparkle. At least if i use up my old stash i have the perfect excuse to buy more of the new products :) If you would like to buy any current products please pop over to my online shop HERE
