Not long now....

Our new stamp range is expected any day now so I thought I would show another example card; this one uses the "Annie sitting Pretty" stamp. But... the image used here is much smaller than our stamps. Because I was working with the digital image as the stamps aren't with us yet, I miscalculated and it's much smaller. I used the height of one of the other stamps instead. Oops, LOL I thought it looked small when I was putting the card together.

I put the spots on the dress by dotting with a colour slightly darker than the darkest shade used on the dress then adding another white dot on top with a white Inkssential pen. This gives depth to the dots.

Products used here are Basic Grey Urban Praire papers and rub-ons. Circles were cut by Nestabilites and the borders/edges were cut using a Fiskars Threading Water punch.

We are looking into sending the stamps abroad but this may be slightly delayed. Reason is simply that the postal system is set to accept UK orders only, all orders are processed on site and picked up by Royal Mail (i.e. we don't manually take orders to the Post Office) so it needs looking into (i.e. custom clearance forms and so on). Boring stuff but crucial if we are sending abroad. So please bear with me whilst I sort that out.
