ATS - sneak peaks...Day 3

Hi everyone, here I am with my card for day 3 preview of a brand new release over at ATS . Hopefully you've had chance to pop over to the blog and take a look at all the stunning samples from the DT and to catch up with the other 2 days.

Don't forget, as always you have the chance to win your very own set from each of the new go on, hop over and take a look.

This month, there is a real mix of stamps, from cutsie girls to sympathy sentiments and everything in between, I'm sure you're gonna love this August release.

So, my card is using 'Sympathy sentiment' by AmyR and I've kept it really plain and simple by just adding a few flowers and a stamped butterfly from Amy's stamp set from last month. Now I know its not something we like to think about, but it does happen that we need a sympathy card from time to time and these sentiments are just perfect.

Here are the details
  • Sentiment: AmyR 'sympathy sentiments'
  • Paper: K& Co.
  • Butterfly image: AmyR
  • Flowers and pearls from stash

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely evening

ATS newsletter

Hi everyone, omg, I totally forgot to stop by and show you my pics which went into the ATS newletter this week.

Each week the newsletter is full of wonderful stuff from ATS, telling you all about fabulous new products, any sale items and even discounted stock or special offers.

This week it was my turn to contibute to the 'how to' section. Now sometimes this section will show you a brilliant tutorial, but I decided to do a 'product focus', here is what I wrote

PRODUCT FOCUS: BG Patterned paper

I love BG patterned paper because…….’each collection is so varied, ranging from bright colours with wild and funky patterns to beautiful soft colours with elegant understated patterns.’

This allows me wonderful flexibility in my cardmaking and means I can choose paper to match my image perfectly

The pads also have a mix of colours/patterns within which means I can make completely different looking cards from just one pad

Here, I have chosen to focus on BG Porcelain and have used this paper to make both these cards……I think you’ll agree….totally different

and here are the two cards to go with it

All images, sentiments and BG porcelain paper available from ATS

If you would like to sign up for the ATS newsletter, click here , scroll to the bottom of the page and sign up.....easy peasy....lemon squeezy

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely evening
