Trying out a new system




Hello peeps, from a wet, windy and cold Cambridgeshire Fens, can't see there's much chance of an Easter like last year when it was barbie time.

This just a really quick experimental post with a different way of detailing the products I have used. It's because so often people mail me and say they like something or the other but can't find it anywhere or not sure what they are looking for. So I am going to try showing little thumbnails of the main products used in each piece I share, with a link to the codes and product details so you can either order from there or alternately know exactly what you are looking for if heading of to the local craft shop.

This one using one of the new La Blanch stamps has been nicely distressed, the very slightest hint of watercolour on the image, hessian leaves which I find cuts beautifully with Spellbinders through the Grand Calibur.

Let me know what you think and if it's more useful to find what you are looking for.

  8. A really lovely vintage style creation Brenda. I think your thumbnail idea is rather good as it's much quicker to take in than a list of supplies.
    Hope your weather soon improves.

  19. Hi Brenda, love the card, very vintage and distressed and the image is great. Your thumbnails are very helpful but I imagine it's time consuming to source all the products you use. Hope you have a lovely Easter. Elizabeth x

  20. Gorgeous card Brenda, love the colours and these flowers are beautiful with that sweet image.

    The thumbnails are a great idea, really easy to see what you've used. I've seen this idea on Kath's blog too and it definitely makes it easier when you can see what's been used.

  36. The image is terrific stamped in brown (interesting to know you used Archival ink for that) & beautifully coloured. The flowers are very pretty indeed & I like your mixture of hessian & punched leaves. I'm an absolute product info addict - especially when it comes to inkpads, dies & colouring materials - so to have the thumbnails/links is a lovely treat for me.
    Hope you have a wonderful Easter.

I love this card so much it has both a vintage and rustic look to it, both of which i adore so much, the distressed papers and that image seem to belong together, a really beautiful creation.
