Good Morning Ladies,
What'd with this flipping weather, I think one of the worst things is getting used to having to dry the washing indoors, I hate having wet washing hanging around. I have found a faster way of drying the washing, putting the airing horse in front of the Aga, it really does kick out a lot of heat and it also means that the dampness stays in the kitchen. I know you used to be able to get racks that hung from the ceiling above, the only thing with that is the cooking smells, I got Paul to move the Airer into the utility room while we cooked dinner. Nobody wants undies smelling of Onions and garlic.
Now onto today's card, it's a bit of a Sneak Peek of one of the Suite's coming up in the new Spring & Summer Catalogue. The Suite in called Needle Point Nook, it has a lovely stamp set that has some lovely floral images that are all like photographs of proper cross stitched flowers etc.
If you zoom in you can see the detail, you get a selection of stitch stamps too, there is also a set of dies that has dies to cut out the flowers and foliage, a lovely label die and a die that pierces a pretty stitched pattern into your paper.
I made a card base out of the lovely Berry Burst card, I then cut a mat of Granny Apple Green card and added a layer of DSP on to that, I repeated the layers and then used the stitched pattern die with a die cut oval of vellum and added that to the centre of my topper, I then stamped a selection of the stamps in Berry Burst, Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green ink, I die cut them and arranged them on top of the piece of vellum. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set and added that to the label die cut that comes in the set.
To finish the card I added a few sparkles and a little wink of stella.
I am going to do a little video introducing each of the sets, with a couple of samples of each one.
Sadly Sue wasn't up to coming over yesterday, I do hope you feel better today Sue, so I sat and sorted some of the new sets I had ordered, ready to make some samples for each set.
Pat, I hope that you get some answers today my lovely, I will message you later to catch up. xx
Lilian, I haven't seen you in in a couple of days, I do hope that you are ok, we miss you. xx
I hope that you all have a lovely day today,
Love and warm hugs to all,
