New art pads out tomorrow…

Morning all, the new Christmas art pads go on sale tomorrow… can you wait!!

I know so many of you love using the toppers for quick cards, they are really popular and I hope you like the new format. The new pads have 60 images instead of 30 and they are still only £6.00 each with free postage. This makes each image just 10p, that’s fantastic value especially if you make your cards for charity or sell them and need to watch the costs

The pads are the same size but there are 2 images to each page. You can see from this card that they are still plenty big enough, there’s just not as much white space around them now….

PTW 71 - Spots and Dots

 

I love this picture, and it matches the Father Knows Best papers like a dream, I would never normally have chosen this collection for a Christmas card but they work really well

The sentiment is from our new Christmas Wishes set

LOTV FATHER KNOWS BEST

The ribbon was again a colour I would never have usually picked but it goes really nicely with the images in this art pad. It’s a satin ribbon and the colour is called Sable, available from the Ribbon Girl

I’ll put a full list of the supplies on my own blog later today if you would like to know what I used on the card

Many of these new images are not necessarily just for Christmas and would suit any Winter birthday or occasion Teamed with these papers they are ideal for men’s cards too which as we all know can be a bit tricky!

Here’s a peak at the new pads, this snowman image is in Set 34 which is called Christmas Eve…

  2. Such a lovely card, how clever to use those papers it makes it look so different. I love the idea of these pads so much and they have so much more detail on some of them than I would be capable of adding with my limited coloring skills

  4. Adore your card, such unusual colours for Christmas but they look wonderful. I need some of these pads as they are fantastic value and feature images not available as stamps. Great for quicker cards. Congrats to Deborah, lovely to see so many of my blogging friends winning.

  11. Wow! Such a stunning card Anne, I love the papers you have chosen and your right they go so well with this lovely image... I just love the Art Pads and use them a lot, so can't wait to get my hands on these beauties lol!! I love the concept of them being a bit smaller and not as much white around them, and what a treat to have double the amount, it will be great for decoupage or putting little elements of the image on the inside.... I love them already lol!!
    Hugs,

  24. Wonderful card Anne! I wouldn't have thought those papers would've looked right with the image for Christmas but they really do look great together. I got an art pad at the birthday bash as a freebie from you and I've used it a lot so I'm a convert to art pads as well as stamps now. Debra x

  27. Super Christmas card. Very unusual choice of papers but it works beautifully. The new art pads look great - I think I will get a couple to do some speed crafting for Christmas. My card making plan has not gone so well this holiday and I am a little behind so these art pads would help a lot.

  42. I love the art pads. I bought them as a good way to work out which stamp I really needed. I have a lot of stamps and many get inked only once so I figured if I used a lot of one image then I could justify buying the stamp. Love the quality and the colours and it's great to have a finished image on hand. I am credit card ready for the launch..........

  47. Gorgeous card Anne! I love the art pads, they're great for when I get a last minute card order that I don't have a lot of time to work on - cuts out like an hour of worktime on it and since they're not a bad price at all really helps keep the card cost low :) These ones look gorgeous, I might actually be able to keep up with the christmas workload this year!

  57. Wow Cannot wait to get my hands on these.
    Last Christmas I made a total of 185 cards, so naturally your art pads played a big part in making them. Last year my favourite image was the big bear with the robin on his foot (still love it and have several for this year to do too).
    I did buy a Christmas Themed Art Pad a few months ago, but have done no Christmas crafting yet!
    Look forward to getting them at GNPE in October.
