And of course there is a chance to enter our giveaways!

Good morning! Today is the day... we can finally release all of the fantastic products in the 2018 Catalog! One of my personal favorite sets in the new catalog was the darling Mouse Tea Party set... The facial expressions the mice are making are just precious! I started by heat embossing the mice, a mushroom "table," and some little accessories onto some watercolor paper using black embossing powder, then watercoloring them with my Zig Clean Color markers in a red and gray pattern. I die cut them out with their coordinating Frame Cuts, then turned my attention to the card base. 

I used white detail embossing powder to heat emboss the lovely, almost doily-esque image from the new Floral Mandala. I thought the doily feel of this pretty, detailed image would be perfect to go with a tea party! I heat embossed it on an A2 panel of Midnight Mix Layering Paper using white detail embossing powder. I trimmed a strip of Blush Mix Layering Paper and heat embossed a greeting from Mouse Tea Party. I adhered the little scene using both dimensional and liquid adhesive to add lots of texture to this project.  

Thank you so much Emily!

Just got my 2nd monthly kit and was again amazed at the quality and amount of product. Last year was a very sad year, lost my niece, then my mom, and a couple months later, my sister. Didn’t have any artistic ideas or urge until I got my kits. THANKS for all your inspiration. GOD DOES PROVIDE!
