New Release - Background by Design 3

Welcome back to my blog today. So glad you decided to join us in our February Blog Hop at AnnaBelle Stamps. Today we are releasing another lovely new set called "Backgrounds by Design 3". What a versatile set this is, I can see myself using this set loads, on cards and scrapbook pages!

Here are the two cards I put together with this lovely set.

This card was inspired by a card I saw over at the lovely Andrea's Blog, thanks for the inspiration Andrea, hope you don't mind that I cased your card!!

And here is my second card.

I seem to be having a bit of an Autumn theme going with the colours of both of these cards, what tells you I am dreaming of cooler crisper weather!!

The set will be available straight away with free postage for 24hrs for those living in Australia and for the rest of us we will get a $5.00 discount. The code for Australian customers is "febrelease" and for others is "intfebrelease". You will only need to key in the code to receive the free postage or discount offer on any order that includes the released set. When there is more than one set and you decide to purchase both then we'll include a little something extra as a treat!

So as normal we are holding a blog hop with this release. You will start at the Annabelle Blog, and follow the links along the way. If you leave a comment on each of our blogs you could win this wonderful set!!!

****The next person you need to visit is the lovely LISA go and leave a comment on her blog****

Hope you enjoy your HOP with us, don't forget to leave a comment along the way!! We hope you enjoyed the inspiration provided for you by all the DT members. Why not treat yourself and purchase these two lovely sets, they would be a lovely addition to your stamp collection. The sets are available for purchase HERE!!

I love the bg stamp in white. Love the texture combined with the diamonds on the second card. So fun to see what the team comes up with.

Teresa said...

Both beautiful cards though Rene!

Ida said...

Wonderful cards. They both have a nice warm and inviting feel and I just love the texture they have.

Susan Hogan said...

Oh I love those colours together - and the textured look you have created. Very smart cards!

Lyn S said...

Great colour combos you used and fantastic cards Rene!

Jessica said...

Gorgeous cards AGAIN Rene'! You are soooo talented. I can make pages all day long, but cards are so hard for me, for some reason. Yours are all so unique! How do you come up with all those great ideas? I love the embossed shape you used. Is that cuttlebug? I have been debating on purchasing something to cut/emboss all those nesting shapes; but still undecided which one. Thanks so much for you sweet comments on my blog! I am 6 weeks today and everything appears to be going great! My first OB appointment is next Thursday, so I think it will be real to me then. LOL :) Hope you have a great end of the week!

Take Care,

These are beautiful! I love the look of the houndstooth in white - it pops! Did you emboss that? And your second card looks great! So much detail. I love it!
