Kre8tors Blog Hop: New Annual Catalog


Welcome to this month's Kre8tors Blog Hop.  This month we are sharing items from Stampin' Up!'s new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  This catalog is jam-packed with the latest stamps, dies, and NEW (and returning) colors!


The new Rooted in Nature bundle is one of my favorite bundles from the new catalog, so I had to use it!  


I wanted a little bit of texture behind the leaves so I pulled out the new Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.  It's hard to tell what this embossing folder looks like from the catalog picture so here is a close up.  It kind of reminds me of the textured cardstock Stampin' Up! used to sell.  It's perfect when you want a little something in the background that won't overwhelm the rest of the card.


The coordinating Designer Series Paper (which I did not use on this card) is so beautiful! I pulled by color combination from the DSP: Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove, and Mint Macaron.


I used this week's sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping as an inspiration for this card.

Ink & Share Blog Hop: Sneak Peek



Welcome to this month's Ink & Share Blog Hop!  For this month's hop we are sharing products from Stampin' Up!'s upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  The new Annual Catalog will release on June 1st.  There are  so many fabulous products (and new colors!) being released that it was hard to choose which items to use for this hop!  I am so excited to be able to share all these wonderful products with you in upcoming posts so be sure to subscribe to my blog or Facebook page while you are here.


I decided to use the new stamp set Abstract Impressions along with a new Designer Series Paper stack, Garden Impressions.  I am a big fan of two-step stamping.  The photopolymer stamps makes it so easy to line up the designs, however with the style of this set, if your stamps are not perfectly aligned, it still looks great!  

I used three new ink colors for this card.  The flowers were first stamped with the new Mango Melody with the detail in Calypso Coral.  The two parts of the stems were stamped with the new Soft Sea Foam (one of my favorites) and Shaded Spruce.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy.  


The print that I used is not my favorite print from this DSP stack.  In fact, I thought for sure that it would be too busy for this card.  But once I paired it with the more subtle Calypso Coral print, I really like it as a the background on this card.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I appreciate each and every visit!  I hope you have been inspired to stamp something today!   Please take a moment to leave me a comment and let me know you were here.  And, as always, I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about these cards or any Stampin' Up! product.

You've Got This for CASE-ing Tuesday


Today's card was inspired by a card from page 37 the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog:

image from Stampin' Up!

I made a few changes on my card to make it my own.
  • I used the retiring You've Got This stamp set.
  • I changed the color combination to Blackberry Bliss and Smokey Slate.
  • The original card used a Memories & More card for the main image.  I instead used Whisper White cardstock.  
  • I centered the Whisper White cardstock instead of offsetting it.
  • Instead of the the thread bow on the sentiment, I used a small circle of Silver Baker's Twine behind the sentiment.
The You've Got This stamp set is on the retiring list.  If it is on your wish list, you need to order now! It will no longer be available after May 31st.
