7 Gypsies Tissue Papers

From the 7 Gypsies' Blog . . .

Back by popular demand is the collage tissue!  For those of you who have been gypsies long enough to remember our original tissue papers, you can finally let yourself use those last bits of tissue you've been hoarding in fear of never getting your hands on gypsy tissue again. These 4 new designs come in super sized 20x30 sheets and can be used in SO many ways. We've been playing with it here in the workshop and have discovered so many ways to use it. (we'll share our findings later)

But here's a quick peek at the 4 different styles:




Check out what the tissue looks like when decoupaged to kraft book board!

And look at these mini flower clips made with the new tissues!

I saw these tissue flowers at CHA and I can't wait for the tissue papers to start shipping. In the meantime, I'm going to try and practice with old tissue papers lying around at home.

Savvy Saturday ~ An Elegant Card Set
Posted: 19 Feb 2011 05:19 AM PST
For Savvy Saturday, we asked Blog Team Member Becca Feeken to share her stunning CHA 2011 Winter Releases Blog Frenzy Post with us. She used S5-034 Parisian Accents and S5-035 Parisian Motifs to create this elegant card set.
I am thrilled to share with you my first project, a card with a separate jacket. The largest die template of the S5-035 Parisian Motifs graced the front of the jacket. The frilly motif served as the focal point of the jacket by cutting out the center using S4-116 Standard Circles SM #2 (the smallest size die template is #1). I simply interlocked the largest die template of the S5-034 Parisian Accents for a matched look that was both elegant and lacey.
As you can see, a large sized card like the 5 ½ x 7 ½” enclosure card fits inside the jacket. To embellish, I used the 9″ border from S5-034 Parisian Accents, the length more than accommodated my tall card. For the frilly medallion on the card, I cut/embossed four corner piece elements in S5-034 Parisian Accents.
The card had a simple closure. The ribbon wrapped around the back of the card and threaded through the center hole to be tied in a bow which secured everything inside. The jacket featured a four flap closure which I cut/embossed from LF-110 Grand Ovals #6. The jacket was designed to be flat however scoring the flaps a little bit differently will yield to accommodate a thick card or two.

Okay, Spellbinders  . . . do your magic stuff and get that shipment to us right away! please!
