Le Cafe Box

I have some exciting news to share.... 
Penny Black has just released their new spring catalog! 

In addition to their fabulous new stamps, they have also launched their own line of cardstock called "Mix & Match".  The colors are so vibrant and rich and the tritone hues make it effortless to create perfect color combinations.
All this and more is in the new Charm of Spring 2011.

In the new catalog you will find this transparent set called "Mimi in Paris".  For this project, I sandwiched a small box (template here) between two scallop rectangle Nestabilities.  I added an extra hat and scarf to Mimi to built up the image then attached her and her cute puppy to the front of the box with dimensional foam.

Here is a closer view so you can see how fluffy the liquid applique became after applying heat.

This side view of the box shows the ornate design of the Delicate Pattern stamp.  This stamp measures 4 1/2 x 5 3/4.  I love the large size - you can cover the front of a card with one impression.

Penny Black also has a new "shop on line" feature.  Just look for the little red shopping cart at the top of the home page.
