Well we are very close to valentine day now. Hope you all have something lovely organised for your loved ones. If your like me and single this year hope you enjoy your weekend what ever you get up to. Few drinks with friends sound like a plan for me.
Have you seen Stix2 new range of card stock? They now have;
Hammered embossed 300gsm card stock in white and cream.
Linen embossed 300gsm card stock also in white and cream.
But that's not all, head across to stix2 website at www.stix2.co.uk where you can find their full range of products as well as their brand new products such as the card above, pearlescent card, Pastel pink/pastel blue gingham card stock AND card blanks in 2 colours - white and Ivory and in a multiple range of sizes.
You know my passion for Stix2 and boy it is growing day by day.
I was very lucky to have a sneak peak at the White linen and hammered card in advance to try out. So although it's not completely clear at first, but on the bookmark below that I have created, it has been stamped twice - once on stix2 bookmark and then again onto a piece of linen white card stock. I have coloured in the 2nd stamped image using my pro markers and then 3D onto the base bookmark using silicone glue. You still get the hammered effect coming through the ink as well as still fitting beautifully in the bookmark sleeve. I added a Dawn Bibby sentiment stamp and Stix2 white and red saying ribbon through the whole. Lovely wee gift to give your loved one to use in her/her books or keep and admire in a special place.
