Show us your new stash!

Hi, back again with my card for our first challenge of the year at Sweet Stampin', and yes, you've guessed it, we want to see your new stuff! Doesn't have to be a Christmas gift just something you haven't used before.
I treated myself to a set of Dandelion stamps from Lavinia just before Christmas, so this was a good opportunity to have a little play with them. I made the frame on the  black card base by die cutting 3 rectangles from a piece of black card stock and matting it onto peach coloured card.  I created a background using my Gelli plate and Distress oxides, and stamped each of the three dandelions with black Versafine Clair. I've added a touch of glitter to the seeds -but it doesn't show in the photo. I punched 2 holes beside each stem and tied a scrap of black ribbon through them and added a tiny stamped tag. 
So just hop over to Sweet Stampin' to see what my lovely teamies have created with their new acquisitions- then why not play along and show off your own new treasures Please remember to stamp something though!

Thanks for visiting today, have a great weekend

ooooooh! How completely beautiful, Miss Chris! Glad you treated yourself to these pretties. Never would I have thought up this design, and it is not only beautiful, but oh-so-SWEET! That darling little charm dangling from the center dandelion has smitten my heart (is that proper grammar?). And the colors behind your trio are just incredible. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT - and will probably be casing your idea! And now, Chris, for my other hat: I enjoyed seeing your pretty card at Lavinia World Challenges >. Hope you join us frequently in the future.
