New findings - DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies quick cards

Some quick cards made using the latest DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies stack - 72 prints in 4.5"x6.5" ! They are also available in 8x8" & 12x12 " papers . But being the cardmaking scrapper I choose the 4.5x6.5" size as I felt they were sooo busy & bright that I can't even imagine using them on layouts ! 
This range of cardstock come Glittered & Foiled ! Foiled Flourishes & butterflies galore ! I had to buy some AC Velvet stickers - these are called Black Tie - to use with these papers . On this card I added a little Maya road transparent ribbon/tape  using my new found tool- the Kokuyo Dotliner HOLD . I have always had it in my stash but only recently discovered the great use of it ! It looks like a stapler & comes in handy for those times you need just a little to add to an embellishment & its adhesive power is really good even though it comes out in dots ! Of course it works great when needing lengths of adhesive too as on a layout . 

So this season's must haves are : glitter, foil, velvet , embossing . Letter stickers - perennial fave AC any thickers - I have only recently discovered Doodlebug's Loopy Lou sticker
 ( especially sweet in powder pink too ) .  & oh ! Fancy Pants Transparencies & Glitter Cuts - Almost every major brand seems to have a new little boy & girl collection - Daisy D's , SEI , K&Co , BG , Sassafras Lass, but I decided to go with Making Memories' Animal Crackers if only because they have such a comprehensive range of embellishments from small brads
 ( butterflies, bunnies ) to epoxy shapes. & their little girl collection is peachy rather than sweet pink ! Again their range also feature flocking & foiling on their patterned papers . Other not so oldies but still goodies felt & chipboard everything - Fancy Pants even has a felt 12x12" sheet die cut with similar shapes as their big board chipboard .

I have decided that purple is my new pink this year in my stash update but I'll see if I can even stay true to that for long !
