More of Intaglio and Exciting News!

What can I say? I'm hooked on the technique. The look you get with it is so fab, I just can't get enough of it! I decided to make a tag because I hadn't made one in a while and this was the result.
I used another stamp I had not used before (let me tell you I'm having so much fun using what I have and not going crazy buying stuff!), and two toned embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I just love all the glow and shimmer their embossing powders provide. Have you tried them? They are super cool. The color I used was the Ceasar's Gold, and I just love the texture it gave to my card. I used the Tim Coffey's Cottage Garden Designer paper, which I'm also hooked on, as well as the Glitz Spritz in the color Desert Moon Gecko Green.....I don't know what is is, but I keep telling you it's my all time favorite and I have to spray it on everything! See the turquoise shimmer everywhere? I have to stop using it so much though, because as you know, it has been discontinued, and once my bottle is over, I won't be able to get it anymore :(.... (oh but regarding this, I have exciting news! Keep on reading until the end of this post to find out haha!)
To hold my sentiment (which was stamped from an American Craft's stamp set called Enjoy), I used an ornament hook I purchased at Target. I love the distressed look it has, and most of all how inexpensive it was, being that I bought some packs on clearance after Christmas at 70% off. Score!

I've been using lots of punches in my projects lately, and I incorporated some of the leaf punches I own. I used a Prima flower and trim, some K and Company brads, a brass charm from my stash, an extra large copper eyelet, and some gold sprays and fibers.

Now for the EXCITING news!!!
I know a few of the Glitz Spritz at the LSG site were discontinued, along with my beloved Desert Moon Gecko Green, but have you heard there are four new sets of colors being released??? Yes, four!!!! Oh I am so excited about that! I have them all in my possession already and I know you'll LOVE them. All the sets have awesome colors, and great names too! The first set being released will come out this Friday, June 13 and it's the Drink Me Silly set. Look at all the fantastic colors! This is definitely my favorite set at the moment.
Check out the Lindy's Stamp Gang Website on Friday to get this awesome set at a great introductory price. Once you get them you'l love them! 
Thanks for stopping by!
