NEC Special - New Product Preview

The Autumn Hobbycrafts show at the NEC, Birmingham, is the perfect place for us to launch some fabulous new products. The show starts tomorrow (8th November) and continues through to 11th November. We're going to be on stand M10, with two demonstration tables, an hourly workshop and plenty of powders, glitters, moulds, tools and cases to buy!

Here's what's new:

SPECIAL EDITION EMBOSSING GLITTERS

Packed in sets of six, these specially selected embossing glitters are only available while stocks last. Video introduction here.

May we present:
 - Desert Sands: lots of gold bling
 - Girls Night Out: evoking the best cocktail colours
 - Caribbean Jewels: can you feel the sunshine?
 - Sugar & Spice: even more sparkle!

Most of the glitters are suspended in clear gloss powder, making them ideal for putting over coloured projects.







For each colour, we've shown the glitter on black card, white card and for the Desert Sands collection on metallic tarnished brass distress stain.




We've tried our Girl's Night Out embossing glitters on the following distress ink colours (as well as black and white):
Black Russian - try with Vintage Photo
Bling Bling - looks great over metallic silver
Port & Brandy - works well over Aged Mahogany
Vodka Sparkle - effervescent over metallic silver
Blue Lagoon - adds sparkle to Peacock Feathers
Campari & Soda - fizzes over Barn Door.










And for these fabulous Caribbean Jewels:
Bahama Blue - chills over Faded Jeans
St Lucia Surf - brilliant with Broken China
Jamaica Green - try it with Pine Needles
Antigua Breeze - sparkles over Tumbled Glass
Martinique Mauve - delightful with Chipped Sapphire
Cayman Coral - works well over Dusty Concord











And finally for the Sugar & Spice special edition:
Salt & Pepper - seasoning for Pumice Stone
Cinnamon - warms up Rusty Hinge
Pink Peppercorn - adds zing to Spun Sugar
Spearmint Sparkle - works well with Shabby Shutters
Aniseed - adds spice to Seedless Preserves
Sugar Cane - sweetens Milled Lavender a treat!










NEW CLEAR STAMPS

We have three new clear stamps available from 8th November:

WOW! ME Blizzard clear stamp
This is just perfect for all the Christmas cards to be made. The filigree snowflakes make for an elegant background or indeed foreground stamp! Try it on white card with some of our embossing glitters or foils for a sparkly snowstorm.

   


WOW! ME Collage
A flower border or hedgerow silhouette with inspirational words. Use it on cards, scrapbooks, art journals and more!




WOW! NB Canvas
A fabulous frayed fabric texture. Ideal background stamp. Try using it with white or black puff powders for a really raised, textured finish.





NEW MELT-IT POWDER


We've developed this product for all those who love to make 3D embellishments using our silicone moulds, or who love melting, mixing and pouring in general! Our new Melt-It powder has a very very fine granule size, which means it melts far quicker than, for example, our clear gloss ultra high powder. Our how-to video shows three ways to melt and mix for those that aren't too sure. Try colouring it with  any of our embossing powders - some of the results may surprise you! Super fine powders work well as colorants, and we recommend adding colours/glitters to already liquid Melt-It and heat again until molten before mixing thoroughly.

Video tutorial: 'three ways to melt' - here.
