Card Kits and Presto Papers

This is a photo of the previous scrap kit for members of the Stampin' Six groups. It contained card stock in colors from the new Subtles Collection--wild wasabi, pretty in pink, so saffron and baja breeze. It also included presto patterns designer paper from the summer mini catalog (pg 15, $11.95). This paper is white with a glossy design that shows up when you add ink. Also in the kit were matching ribbon, bitty buttons, and whisper white lattice die cuts made on the Big Shot. Well, I haven't done up a scrap page using the layout idea (also in the picture) but I did try a card....Remember the versamark technique, where you stamp a background in versamark and then pounce on chalks to reveal the pattern? I decided to try that technique with inks and the presto patterns paper. Not too bad, I think! The butterfly from Great Friend stamp set (pg 107, $17.95) was stamped in so saffron and cut out, and a bitty button attached with a glue dot. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to place the greeting inside the outline AFTER I cut it out with the matchbox die and Big Shot. Finished it off with pretty in pink satin ribbon (pg 13 summer mini).
Only a few weeks left until the new catalog arrives....! Can't wait to see the new stamp sets and designer papers!
