Introducing Rococo Rose with Woven Heirlooms

My apologies for being a day late with my post – it has been a busy week as I had my catalog launch on Thursday with over 20 of my wonderful and supportive customers who came to look at new products, do some make and takes and collect their own precious copy of the new catalog!

Our next new color for 2019 – 2021 is Rococo Rose ~ a gentle pink my sweet ol’ Mum would have called Ashes of Roses.  I have paired it with one of the new stamp sets – Woven Heirlooms, one of the first stamp sets on my list when I opened the new catalog! a new coordinating  ribbon and the Bird Ballad Trinkets.

This is the second of the new In-Colors and they are all so very pretty – you can get your hands on a set if you would like to join in my ink and color share, where you can build up your collection over the next few months without breaking the bank – click here for more info

Triple Layer Stamping ~ Video Tutorial

I do love a good technique! I know Triple Layer Stampin’ has been around for a while but it is always good to revisit and bring it up to date with our current stamp sets and colors.

I have chosen the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set for this card – it has lots of different images that work very well with this technique, and paired it with Itty Bitty Birthday Wishes Stamp Set for my greeting.  I am also thinking that it would make a great card for the fellas in our lives, birthday, graduation or even Father’s Day!
