I love new stash!

Hello lovely people,

It's full on crafting craziness in my world right now...ok, I know a lot of you will ask when it isn't?!

While I attempt to knock up around 70 wedding thank you cards by the weekend, we have a new challenge at As You Like It and our theme this time is...

...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Digi Stamp Boutique with a £10 voucher

I absolutely adore having new stash to play with as I find it always inspires me, and in this case it inspired me to try a new fancy fold; this is a double z-fold card.

There's a lot of new stash on this card too as the stamps, papers and gear dies are all new!
You will be seeing more of these fab papers as they are actually Christmas papers but some of the patterns work for any occasion.  There are some snowflake ones too which are lush :-)

I pushed the boat out and got the matching dies for these little bots, which made quick work of cutting them out so I could pop them on foam pads for extra dimension.

I couldn't choose my favourite from this adorable pair so I designed the card so that I could use both of them!
