December New Product FUN!

Hello, Stampers!

So glad you could step aay from the holiday hustle and bustle to 
join us for the December Tour de Freaks Blog Tour!

We are all so excited to sare with you NEW products from the upcoming 
Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure!

If you are arriving from LeeAnn's fabulous Flowerbug blog or just starting out
here, you are definitely in the right place!

I was SO EXCITED to see the NEW two-toned Baker's Twine!!
Basic Black/Melon Mambo and Basic Black/Mint Macaron are
the colors and they sure are BOLD!

I decided to try a little something different (other than trying a bow!) with the twine.
I free-handed a heart onto wax paper using a permanent marker.
I turned the paper over and dipped my twine into a mixture of
equal parts Multi-purpose liquid glue and water.
Then, I formed the twine into the heart template and
let it dry completely overnight.

The heart was perfect for a little sky writing on this
masculine Valentine's Day card featuring the Sky is the Limit stamp set
(a Sale A - Bration FREEBIE!)

Stamps: Sky is the Limit
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Mint Macaron
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Basic Black/Mint Macaron Baker's Twine, Multi-purpose Liquid Glue, wax paper

Of course, I couldn't leave out the Melon Mambo twine!
Here, I split the thread and sewed it using the Updated Essentials 
paper piecing template. THe remainder of the twine was used to tie around the card.
I love the bold Basic Black and Melon Mambo combination!
So vibrant with the new Bloomin' Love stamp set!
