Basic Grey has arrived!











My order of Basic Grey 6x6 pads have arrived - as well as an order of chipboard hardware and chipboard numbers.... how fun!!! I am putting them on my website for sale at(http://store.clothingcorner.com/bagr6x6papa.html)
-
The pads are $5.99 each for 36 6”x 6” sheets of BasicGrey’s new papers. 18 designs, 2 sheets of each on 65# heavyweight paper. I have a bundle deal when you buy one each of the 4 new papers for $20.00.
-
I'm gonna go dig into the box and play now!!! I'll post my creations later!
-
**UPDATE**
I sat down in the studio and almost had a panic attack.... which paper to cut into first???? It was almost like sensory overload!!
-
The first card I made was with Stella Ruby - the vintage look to this paper is gorgeous!! I ran the red sheet through the cuttlebug to put a swirl texture on it. I then stamped the Doodle This flowers on saffron paper, and stamped the centers on the excess background paper. The stems are black organdy ribbon that was twisted and adhered through holes under the flowers. I chalked the chipboard with yellow liquid chalk, then added a flourish rub-on (also basic grey and I do have them for sale!!)
-
The second card is my favorite out of the 2 - I CASED this from a magazine (Paper Creations) and used the papers from the Scarlett's Letter paper pack. I used the striped paper as the background, covered the heart with the dotted paper, and cut strips 2 of the distressed solid papers to punch the flowers by using the flower dies from Cuttlebug. The chipboard heart has a piece of hemp strung across it with a tag attached. The flourishes are from the BG Flower Rub-ons that I have for sale on the website.
-
The bundles have sold out - but more are on the way! I still have the not-so-new papers in stock.... Blush, Lily Kate & Gypsy. I'm gonna put those 3 together for $15.0o if interested just click the link
-
One more thing... This week's BLOG CANDY is a one of the Basic Grey paper pads... leave a comment and enter to win!
