Sorry for the later post today. I meant to get on and write a blog post last night and it just got hectic!
Today I have something really exciting to share with you all!
A card made using BRAND NEW NOT YET RELEASED product!
I just got my pre-order box in the mail yesterday, and I got right into it to make a card that I just knew that I would want to make.
When I saw the Gold Hoops that match the brand new Forever Greenery suite, I just knew I had to make a dreamcatcher.
To see a story about my love for dreamcatchers see the bottom of this post. They are one of my favourite things, and I have about five hanging around my house…no joke!
To see the products I have used in today’s project, see below – however I could not list all the new products used as they are not available to share yet as far as digital images.
P.S. Don’t want to wait for this AMAZING suite?
Did you know that to buy the whole suite, it costs $183.25 HOWEVER you can get it all for $169 + FREE POST and get an additional $51.75 to spend on products of you choice. How cool is that?
If you want to know more, send me a message or head here to get the kit.
You just need to add the product code #154143 to add this beautiful new suite.
It comes FULL of amazing products including a stamp set, dies, 2 embossing folders, a set of two ribbons, gold die cuts and a full pack of GORGEOUS Designer Series Paper.
Here’s a look at the finished card.
As you can see I have woven a dream catcher using the Gold Hoop. It’s by no means perfect and I won’t lie…it was fiddly – but so worth it.
I have then combined that other coordinating ribbon from the suite (which I have trimmed in half length ways for a frayed and thinner look) and looped this through the create the ‘strings’ of the dreamcatcher. I have also added bits of Linen Thread and some of the Gold Metallic Thread that I have used to weave the dreamcatcher.
I have then started with a Just Jade card base. This is my absolute FAVOURITE new colour.
I have stamped my card base with one of the coordinating stamps in Versamark ink to create a tone on tone look.
I then added layers of Gold Foil and Shimmery White Cardstock which I have embossed with one of the coordinating embossing folders.
I then added a 1″ strip of the Forever Greenery DSP to the side and added some strips of Linen Thread to where the two patterns meet.
Do you want to see a close up of all these products?
Watch my unboxing video I did yesterday…
Here’s a close up look at the finished card.
I used the ‘Hello’ sentiment from the coordinating stamp set which I have heat embossed on Pretty Peacock Cardstock in White.
I have just added this with Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Linen Thread Bow.
Here’s a better close up look of the completed dream catcher.
I have attached the whole dream catcher with Mini Glue Dots in areas where you will not see them.
I then added some Wink of Stella spritzing over the whole card for some sparkle and shine!
Here’s a look at the decorated inside of the card where I have added more layers of Gold Foil and Whisper White. I have also added some stamps from the gorgeous stamp set stamped in Pretty Peacock and Old Olive (for the little splatters).
I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Black.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and got some inspiration with this gorgeous new suite.
Don’t forget that you too can get this suite now and in a great deal!!!

So the dreamcatcher story?
Well I love dreamcatchers as I mentioned above and when I was planning my wedding (from last year) I wanted to include dreamcatchers somehow…
So they were actually part of our little gift to everybody.
Even better? My gorgeous Aunty Stace hand weaved them all!! She’s amazing!!
There were over 100 of these gorgeous dreamcatchers. Fun Fact: they actually are made using a Stampin’ Up! product, they are the old embroidery hoops that were available a couple of years ago! Yes, I bought enough of them to make over 100 of these! Hehe!
We also had a macrame dreamcatcher behind us at our wedding, which now takes pride of place in my bedroom!
