new product sneak peek

Hello stampers!
Today's card feastures some new products which will be available with the release of the new catalog coming in June.

I began with a card base of Whisper White cardstock, measuring 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2".  This forms a standard size A2 card.  The next layer also in Whisper White  measures 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  The DSP is from a new small paper stack called "Moonlight."   The DSP layer measures 3-1/4" x 4-1/2", which has been adhered to the white layer.  This layer was then attached to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The tag was formed by stamping on a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 2" x 4".  I first stamped the bottom chevron design from a new stamp set called "Work of Art" in Hello Honey ink.  The technique is second generation stamping, because the lighter layer was stamped without re-inking the stamp.  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink, and is from a new hostess set called "Bloom with Hope."  The top of the tag was formed using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  I added a piece of our new Blackberry Bliss ribbon.  This ribbon is absolutely gorgeous and ties so beautifully.  I stamped three small hearts in Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, and Basic Gray on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set called "Something to Say."  We have a new trio of punches, and the small heart punch coordinates with this stamp set.  So cute!  The tag was attached at an angle to the front of the card using dimensionals, and I scattered the small hearts on the tag,  The Blackberry Bliss heart was glued directly to the card front, but the Basic Gray and Hello Honey hearts were popped with dimensionals.  The finishing touch was to add a small rhinestone to each heart.  I think this is a simple but sweet card for someone special in your life.
