More Tatty!

The wholesale trade show is now finished and behind us but the response to Tatty was incredible.  You will soon be seeing her in your local craft and stamping stores.  I thought that I would show you another of the card samples that I made using her.  I've gone for a classic red, white and black colour scheme on this one.  I think it is very striking.  The window is a separate element in the range and I stamped Tatty out, coloured her and cut her out but only used the top half of her so she looks like she is leaning out the open window.  It is difficult to see in this pic but I used our brick embossing folder behind the window to look like part of the wall.  The window has been cut out also and the shutters are folded slightly upward so they look very 3 dimensional in real life.  I just need to get a camera now that will photograph it well!

   I've had to take a short break on my Tatty Button samples as I am working on my demos for the nine POTW shows that I'm doing starting on March 4th!  I'm about half way through now with less than a week to go (the pressure is on!).  Let me know your thoughts on Tatty!  Back to work now, Sue x

another lovely card, superb colourway. Liking the look of tatty too. Are the flowers a new make or bought ones? Looking forward to your POW shows.
Best wishes.

Classy card! Works well with the stitching. I am looking forward to seeing this set as it looks that bit different, love things with walls, windows and stuff for characters to lean/sit/interact with!

Tatty is super cute and I love the dimension in the card :)

Fiona said...

Lovely - the angled layering really sets it off

Ange Lee said...

Another great card that shows expertly how Tatty can look equally as striking in vivid red and black..as she can all pretty pink and shabby chic! Loved looking at all the teams cards at the trade show, using the Tatty stamps and seeing all the different styles...I've taken away lots of ideas and thoughts for future designs. Thanks Sue.

Oh...and glad I'm not the only cheese fiend with a thing for melting it on crackers!
