So the new Seasonal Catalogue - click here - has so many gorgeous products in it that you need to go through it several times to see them all!! I have been through the catty so many times, I even have it saved to my ipad so that I can flick through it when I am out - my ipad has certainly paid for itself with being able to show customers or potential customers what I am talking about right then and there!
My new love from the Seasonal Catalogue is the Core'dinations Card Stock. We had 3 colours of this cardstock in our Holiday Mini, but with so much else in that catalogue, I didn't get to focus on it, but with this catalogue comes new colours!!
Page 12 shows you the new colours for this catalogue - Pool Party (my fav!!), Primrose Petals and Real Red. Using a sanding block - check out our little cutie! - you can sand back a portion of the cardstock revealing a monochromatic (lighter version of top colour ) version in that area. When embossed with an embossing folder, the raised part just begs to be sanded, as much or as little as you like! Check out my before and after below - the sentiment is from a stamp set exclusive to Sale-a-bration:
Sorry about the lighting - it makes it a little hard to see th details. I used the sentiment from the Sale-a-bration set Vintage Verses 129636, the new Pool Party Core'dinations cardstock and some favs from the Annual Catalogue - this card is perfectly acceptable in it's current form, but wait until you add an embossing folder and a sanding block! :
