…from the Collins Virtual Show last week. These are some of the cards from the Sample Making Frenzy, featuring new items from Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn, Impression Obsession, LDRS Designs, Buttons Galore, Dare 2B Artzy and Avery Elle (above) and PinkFresh Studios (below); just some of the fun stuff that will start appearing at Paper Anthology this Spring!
…from Monday’s classes at The Collins Virtual Trade Show. Amazing new dies from Spellbinders, plus some excellent techniques for using inks with diecuts.
HOW CUTE are those cookies?! (Sugar free and very High Fiber lol!) The box die can be used with or without the window and is sized perfectly for a gift card.
Some amazing new slim line products will be coming from Spellbinders, as well.
As always, Lawn Fawn are unbeatable for both adorable characters AND their easy-to-use mechanicals! Some super sweet new sets on the way to support your existing Shutter Card, Slider and Magic Iris sets!
We absolutely *LOVE* seeing what our friends are making, and during the Paper Anthology 9th Anniversary Celebration we were treated to a huge helping of incredible eye candy! (Visit the PA FaceBook Page and scroll back a bit to see for yourself!) Michelle DeSaro made some especially inspiring cards; including this amazing cross-stitched Christmas! (Because YES, she really did stamp, diecut and hand stitch that entire jaw-dropping A2-sized Taylored Expressions Buffalo Plaid background!)
This stunning autumnal card has it all: beautiful coloring, just the right amount of inking, and fabulous composition. (Just look at those Sunny Studios Pretty Pumpkins perfectly placed in the “V” of the pennant!)
You really need to look at this lovely Christmas card to see how many elements have been cleverly layered: a two-color wreath with sentiment stamped on top; layered onto a doily, with a velvet bow; all of which perfectly match the softly patterned paper and coordinating cardstock, with inked and faux stitched edges.
Lauren used the MISTI to position and stamp all of the images on one layer of card stock. First the car, then the deer, then the antlers. Each element was given a “basecoat” of its lightest color with Tombow Dual Brush Pens, and shading added with colored pencils. There are, of course, coordinating Christmas Car Critter Dies, but in this case the image was fussycut right at the outlines.
Lawn Fawn goodies galore!New Fall and Holiday stamp sets, (including Creatures Who ARE Stirring… only LF could come up with irresistible mice who love to bake, right?!) new Lawn Cuts die sets; plus new accessories for their popular Shutter, Reveal Wheel and Magic Iris (you have to see the Camera!) series.
Brand new Impression Obsession! New hybrid ink colors, Fall and Holiday themed stamps, and LOTS of great new stamps sized for Slimline, but useful for ANY size card. Beautiful landscape elements like Mountains, Tree Lines, Hillsides, Snow, Clouds and more; each works wonderfully on its own, or you can use them together to Make a Scene… in a good way!
Glitter lovers rejoice! We’ve got twenty (20!!!) new colors of 8.5 x 11″ Non-shed Glitter Paper. Featuring a wide range of colors and several different scales, it’s not just 100% mess-free but DIECUTTABLE, too!
The Collins Virtual Show was a delightful and inspiring blur, full of new ideas, products and projects. Orders have been placed with Hero Arts, LDRS Designs, Graphic 45, Picket Fence Studios, Impression Obsession, Concord & 9th, Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, PhotoPlay and Dare 2B Artzy; stay tuned for sneak peeks of all the goodness coming soon to Paper Anthology!
