A little bit of Bling - with Something Old and Something New - for GDP083

It's such an exciting time of the Stampin' Up! year with lots of new things coming in the New catalogue. One of the great perks of attending Onstage is the opportunity to buy new products before they are released. There are loads of gorgeous new things coming, and I have featured 2 of those on my card today.

Something Old:
a very old Wedding stamp (the Mr and Mrs is retired but still gorgeous) and I use it a lot for cards at the markets.
Something New:
There are a number of new ribbons coming and they are all stunning. This card uses the new Mini 
Chevron ribbon in Old Olive- it is beautiful and soft and also comes in Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry.
The other stunning and very sparkly new product is the Glitter Enamel Dots. These come in graduated sizes AND graduated colours. Each pack contains 40 glitter dots in each of 4 colours- Old Olive, BerryBurst, Crushed Curry and Dapper Denim from a deep shade of the colour up to a very pale shade. You are going to love them!
Something Retiring:
The Falling in Love Embellishments are so pretty and delicate and certainly add some bling to this card.
Something Blue:
The clear skies of a May day for a Beautiful wedding.

I have heat embossed the Mr and Mrs in silver, adhered some burlap ribbon and the olive Mini Chevron ribbon in place. Then 'blinged it up' with some silver metallic thread, the Falling in Love embellishment and the glitter dots. The Kraft card looks nice against some very vanilla card.

Also new is the Color Theory Designer Series Paper stack which is a great 6x6 stack using the same 4 colours in the dots and a range of ombre papers which have a paint sparkle look on the reverse. They are gorgeous. I have used one of the graduated pieces to decorate the envelope flap and of course run it through the embossing folder to give it the formal treatment. I love this simple addition.

I am entering this card in the Global Design Project this week- I have finally had an opportunity to participate again this week.

I have quite a few more projects made using new products which I will share in the next few days.
 So be sure and subscribe to my blog by filling in the Follow me by Email box - right below the three  RAINBOW SWIRL BOXES on the right side panel of this page.  That way as soon as I post a new project you will get an email with the pictures of my new projects.  There's some more ombre cards and some more wedding cards coming in some new colours.

Thanks for looking and remember,

"Don't just post online, 
Post something pretty"
