Make Old Products New When Mixed With New Products
We can make old products new again. So often when a new catalogue becomes available, we sit down and make a list of the new products we would like. What about the products that you purchased from the last catalogue? Do you forget about them and they sit on a shelf?
You can make the old new when you combine with the newer products.
I used the Basket of Wishes stamp set that appeared in the 2016 Holiday Catalogue and mixed it with the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
The Basket of Wishes stamp set appears in the 2017/18 Annual Catalogue and is available to purchase. Of course, the Cajun Craze and Whisper White cardstocks and inks are part of the colour families so they are available to purchase as well. .
Stamps: Basket of Wishes.
Ink/Marker: Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Basic Black Archival, Markers: Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry.
Paper: Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.
This designer series paper will be ready to view in my online store on September 1st.
Accessories: Big Shot, Layering Circles Collection Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, 1/4” Copper Trim.
A Few Details
- Create the bow using the Copper 1/4″ trim. This trim is a loose-weave trim and there is a zigzag stitch through it. The interesting part is that you can gently pull the trim to widen it giving the trim fullness. I tied the bow and then widened the trim.
- Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock using Cajun Craze ink. Mount on a panel of Cajun Craze. Attach the bow with Mini Glue Dots.
- Die cut a circle from Whisper White cardstock with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Stamp the basket with Crumb Cake ink. Use Basic Black Archival ink and stamp the flower on top of the basket opening. Color the flowers and leaves using markers as noted above. Use a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink and sponged around the circle. Mount the art piece on scallop circle cut with the Circles Framelits Collection.
Take the time to look at the various stamping products that you have and design a card using an older stamp set with newer papers and embellished. See what you can do to make the old products new again.
