Q: I see wonderful new embellishments in the catalog, but I’m not sure how to use them. What do you suggest?
A: You are right! There are some amazing new embellishments in the catalog. My favorite thing about embellishments is that they can take a good project and make it a “wow” project in a flash! Whether you like the details and textures of vintage style, the glamour of sparkles, or a more simple versatile look, we have the perfect embellishments for you!
The popular vintage look is all about layers and textures. Add accents like the new beautifully detailed Antique Brads (#117273) on top of torn and distressed layers for a perfect finishing touch on cards, scrapbook pages, or 3-D projects. For a more subtle vintage look, add the tiny safety pins and button-style brads from the Vintage Trinkets (#118764). These accents feature rich finishes like antique brass, pewter, and antique gold that bring a special luster to any vintage-style project. Add even more texture and vintage appeal with the detailed beauty of Crochet Trim available in Chantilly (#118480) or Victoria (#118481).
Nothing brings out a smile like a bit of bling! Whether you want an elegant touch or a zap of sparkle, you’ll love the new easy-to-use and super affordable Jewels. Available in elegant Pearls (#119247) or sparkly Rhinestones (#119246), you’ll be amazed at both their value and simplicity. With over 150 pieces and 3 different sizes (plus strips) of self-adhesive jewels in each package, you’ll be able to add sparkle to everything from cards, 3-D projects, scrapbooks, home décor, and maybe even yourself! Add more shimmer with the glossy finish of our beautiful 5/8” Satin Ribbon available in the 12 colors of the Getting Started Collection plus Very Vanilla!
Vintage detail and sparkly glamour isn’t for everyone. If you prefer a more simple or understated look, you’ll love what you can do with a few basic embellishments like Silver Brads (#104336), the Clips Assortment (#112580), or coordinating ribbon like the new 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon. Silver Brads are one of those go-to supplies that are perfect for almost any project, from masculine cards to baby cards. They provide that little extra something that just finishes a project. The Clips Assortment adds the perfect, and a bit unexpected, touch to modern, office, school, or masculine projects. The new In Colors are super popular and you can easily add accents to projects featuring those colors using the 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon. This ribbon has the detail of stitched edges to make it interesting without being fussy. With a few of these simple embellishments, you can create many versatile projects in a snap!
