 New Releases!

It sounds like Jan Marie and Sharon are having a fabulous time at CHA! They’re checking out all sorts of products and I am sure they will have some wonderful things for us to carry in the store. But until they return I want to announce tomorrows new releases.

We have two background stamps Damask and Damask-REVERSE, which is just a “negative” view of the Damask. These stamps measure 5.5 x 4.25. In addition to these is a set called “Many Sentiments” which contains some of the most often used sentiments for card makers – all in beautiful fonts. This set also has two decorative elements to coordinate with the phrases. This trio contains elements of all these sets.
First, the card uses the Damask – REVERSE in rose red for the background. The ovals were cut using Nestabilities and “Many Thanks”, in rose red, is from the Many Sentiments set. The white satin ribbon is also available at Flourishes and is just perfect for this card.

Next is this cute little tin I purchased at Wal-Mart in their wedding section. It’s filled with m & m’s in the valentine colors (the hardest part was not eating the m&m’s before I finished this project!) The circles are cut using the Petite Circle Nestabilities, and “Best Wishes” is from the Many Sentiments set. Both the rose scalloped circle and the band around the tin are stamped with the Damask background.

Finally, this little vellum box is filled with more m&m’s!! I made the box with a template downloaded from Mirkwood designs. I took a strip of rose red and white and stamped the Damask on both and wrapped it around the box. Then I tied a rose colored sheer ribbon (JoAnn’s) around that. I topped it with a tag made from Petite Circle Nestabilities and stamped “So Very Thoughtful” in rose. This sentiment is also from the Many Sentiments set.

Here is what the tags and little band look like before I adhered them.
Please stop by the store tomorrow and take a closer look at these sets.
Also – don’t forget that the Flourishes Cake Decorating contest continues all this month – submit your card using the Cake Decorating Stamp set and have a chance to win prizes!!
