5 New Things

This post should be called, how many new Stampin' Up! products can I use on one card.  The answer is I used 5.  This was not intentional.  If it were I would have used even more!  The struggle is real.  So many beautiful new products that it is hard to figure out what to focus on.  

AstheInkDries-SubtleTIEF-TuftedTIEF

I used 3 new Big Shot items; Subtle TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing folder), Tufted TIEF, and the Delicate Lace Edgelits.   There are a lot of questions about the Subtle TIEF.  The best description is that it creates the look of a textured card stock.

It is perfectly named.  This may be the must have embossing folder.  I often want a little something that adds interest and texture but isn't too obvious and this embossing folder definitely does that.

The Tufted TIEF adds the beautiful lines.  I used to create the same look using the Simply Scored, this is MUCH quicker and easier. 

There are 3 designs in the Delicate Lace Edgelits.  They are all intricate and beautiful.  The dies are 6" long so they work for both portrait and landscape cards.  These dies were on the top of my list.  I think they can be overlooked since they are not associated with a stamp set.  They are on page 217 and are all gorgeous.

The other 2 new items are the Metallic Pearls and the 3/8" Mini Ruffled Ribbon in Powder Pink.   The Metallic Pearls come in a pack that contains both silver and gold pearls.   They are all the same size 3mm which is the size of the smallest pearl in the Basic Pearl Jewels.  I seem the use the smallest pearls the most so this is just perfect.  There are so many new ribbons that it was hard for me to decide what to get.  I know you probably think I buy them all.  I usually buy a roll of each new type of ribbon.  I love the look of the 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon and purchased it in Berry Burst and Powder Pink.  I am so happy that the ribbon is soft and easy to tie. 

I should have used a new stamp set for the sentiment.  The sentiment I used is from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set.  Sentiments from the new Itty Bitty Greetings would have been perfect to use.  Next time for sure.  

Hope you have enjoyed a look at 5 new things.  If you need any of these items click on the links and you will be taken to my online store or you can CLICK HERE. I would love to be your Stampin' Up! demonstrator!
