Shiny Sunday and Sneak Peeks

Happy Mother's Day! I hope today finds you celebrating with those you love. Unfortunately my mom lives too far away for me to be able to spend the day with her, but I sure will do my best to make sure she knows just how much she is loved and appreciated.
Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps...

 This sketch is soooo versatile! The possibilities are virtually endless, though we are encouraged to create a scene with it. So here is my project for the Design Team...

 Can you spot the new products on this card?? There are two items from the upcoming 2016/17 Annual Catalogue. Firstly I began with some Affectionately Yours Specialty fact, it was the pattern on the piece that I used that inspired this entire project! I layered behind the DSP a piece of Cucumber Crush card stock which I had embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF and sponged lightly with ink of the same colour. The sunburst is die-cut from Daffodil Delight card stock using the Sunburst Thinlits (which are carrying over into the new catty...yay!). I stamped each ray with the dotted border from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set using Daffodil Delight ink. Then I sponged the edges of the die-cut and added sparkled with the clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.

 The swirly gold die-cut behind the sentiment was created with the second new product I used called Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. Let me just say they are the bomb!! I am in love with them! Here I die cut the largest swirl from gold foil sheets. The sentiment is from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set and is heat embossed in gold. I added a few gold sequins for just a little more sparkle. The whole card is built on a piece of Pool Party card stock and then adhered to a Night of Navy card base.

On the inside I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped another of the sentiments from the Sunburst Sayings set in Night of Navy ink. I added a stamped swirl in Daffodil Delight from another new product called Swirly Bird. This stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Swirls and Scribbles Thinlits and will be available in a discounted bundle June 1st. The final touch on the inside was a little gold glimmer heart punched with Heart Border punch, which will be retiring June 1st.

Be sure to check back this week as I showcase more new products. I'm having great fun getting to know the new In-Colours and all the fabulous new possibilites they offer. In the meantime, but sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects and then give this sketch a is a great one!
