Now onto the viewing of some projects made with some wonderful new products from our New Autumn-Winter mini catalogue, this mini is quite possibly the most exciting one ever released, it has so many new tools and accessories as well as some beautiful new stamp sets which are available in the traditional wood mount and now also in the new clear mount style. This is an option for those of you who are short on space, as they are stored in a compact DVD style case.
This card has been made using the new style punch called the extra large two step bird, it cuts out this bird along with a pretty branch with leaves and a separate wing to add to your bird if you so wish. I have put the birds onto the stamped grass image from Inspired by Nature set found in the main catalogue. They are stamped onto the top note die which was cut out using the new Big Shot machine, this machine can cut out over fifty different materials. I was inspired to make this card after seeing a tutorial on it by the ever so talented brayer queen Michelle Zindorf. I sponged the top note with Apricot Appeal, Really Rust, Bravo Burgundy and Basic Black ink. The card stock is Apricot Appeal, Really Rust and Basic Black, the top note die was Whisper White.
The next card uses the Pretty rose from the set called Fifth Ave Floral which can be found in the main Catalogue, it is mounted onto the top note which has been cut out using the Big Shot machine, the little leaves die was also used for the foliage that you can see behind the rose. This water colour technique is one I found on the net shown by Patty Bennett, but there are several versions of it floating around. The dies and the Big Shot machine are a new release in the Autumn-Winter mini.
This next card was made using the fabulous new set called Vintage Vogue, I can assure you that you will be seeing a lot more of this set from me in the near future, I LOVE it! I also love this new in-colour called Rich Razzleberry, it's so yummy. I used some Whisper White 1/4'' gros grain ribbon which I dyed with some Pale Plum re-inker to embellish the bottom of this card. I also used the wonderful jumbo Wheel called Very Vintage onto some Pale Plum card stock.
