New Catalogs!

All the new stamp catalogs are out! This week I've seen the latest SU, CTMH, and TAC catalogs, but I think the TAC catalog has the most exciting stuff in it! I already have my hostess club purchases mapped out.

One of the really cool things that The Angel Company catalog has that the others don't is the Copic Caboodle sets. I know, you can get Copics online all over, but TAC sells them with matching cardstock! Seriously, this has been my biggest problem with alcohol ink coloring - after I color, it doesn't match any of my paper! Plus, the sets coordinate with the designer papers TAC sells, so you end up with colored images you can USE!

Secondly, they sell stamps that fit perfectly with Nestabilities (yeah, they sell the Nesties, too!) They also sell stamps that fit their punches (okay, SU does this too, but TAC does it better for less money)

I was at Chris's house today, looking at the catalog and doing a couple of make and takes. Here are the cards she had for use to try:

On this card, you can see the frame stamp is designed to work perfectly with the Nestie. You can't make out the damask medallion on the background, but it looks very sophisticated with the speckled paper.

This isn't a new stamp, but it's a great set, and on this card, we colored the image with pencils and blended it with OMS. Chris designs such great cards - It's a pain to drive to Springfield just to stamp, but she makes the trip worthwhile.

Thanks Juliet - you are the best! I always appreciate you pushing me out of my comfort zone (I honestly mean that in a GOOD WAY!) and the way you look out for me. I do appreciate that you drive up here to see me. I'll try and return the favor!!
