Old meets New

Hello, it's the first challenge of 2019 at Try it on Tuesday and we've got a nice one for you - Something New/Something Old.  So if you were lucky to get new crafting goodies for Christmas, we would like to see what Santa brought you - or if you weren't lucky and Santa thought you had enough - well you can still play along and show us your old stash, just tell us what you're using.

I've used the TH Botanical 3D folder, which is new, I sanded the raised area and swiped Antique Linen Oxide over, then swiped Versamark and sprinkled with Gold embossing powder, although this doesn't show in the photo.  I've made a frame with the TH Stacked Postage dies which was a Christmas present, this was cut with the same navy co-ordinations card.  I originally used Aquamarine Treasure Gold, then decided to stamp over with the Nordic background and heat embossed this with gold EP.

I need a special girly card for my DIL, so I've used  a lovely old Graphic 45 Couture stamp, fussy cut and coloured with DIs with a little bit of sparkle added.

The rest of the DT have some fabulous makes, so please pop over to the main blog to see what they've been up to.

  I am entering this at Stamping Sensations - Fabulously Feminine

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx
