New Stash - But Not Mine Really!

This week the Tag, You're It challenge is to use new stash. And as it 'appens, I do have some new stash! But really, its not mine! I've been asked to make some Wedding Invitations and will be using probably over 100 of the silver buckle hearts, so not wanting to be left short, I've over ordered, knowing that I will be able to use the surplus!

The white gel pen is a new purchase too and so is the red, ever so slightly glittery ribbon, which was wired but I took the wire out (its dammed hard work trying to tie wired ribbon!) The red card has a sort of embossed feel to it and although I've a few sheets of it, I've not really used it properly before.

So there you go! Oh, and I had to cheat a little with the buckle as the slider thing kept showing behind the sheer ribbon - so I added a bit of red grosgrain behind it so it looks so much better!

  • Cardstock: From my stash
  • Dies: Sizzix Super Sized Scallop tag and also Scallop tag combo (largest used)
  • Ribbon: From Hobbycraft
  • Heart buckle: From my stash
