Some new products on my wishlist and a few cards!

I love experimenting with the impression plates and dies from Papertrey Ink.  Here are some simple cards I made:
I stamped the sentiment from the dress form set from PTI as well.

I used the text style impression plate and the dress form die for the first card and then for the second, used the sunshine impression plate and same die.  Love the simplicity! 

The patterned papers are from a pack of American crafts.

I have been really good about not buying craft related items for a while but that is not lasting for long ...  :P  There are some amazing products out with the combination of Basic Grey and Hero Arts - how gorgeous their collaboration has been!

I am also going to stock up on Studio Calico's Mister Huey's spray mists while they are on sale.   Definitely some luscious colours and some cream as well.

Look at this card done with these mists:

Gorgeous, right??

The last thing on my list is the gelatos and other products from Faber Castell ... they look so cool and so many fun techniques can be done with them.  

Here's a card that Jennifer McGuire did with the Gelatos:

And with the big brush pens:

What is on your next purchase list?

Great cards. I love that dress form die. I have been intrigued by the FC Gelatos. I will be interested in hearing how you like them.

Wonderful cards. So much fun that embossing and die cut combo.

I just did a big crafty order of glimmer mists of all things! I have such a crush on the finer shimmer ones. I am certain I don't need as much variety as I've ordered but, but, but... I also have just ordered a few Christmas stamps from the new HA collection. Sigh. I'm a shocker. Cool post.
