Holiday Catalog Preview with the Ink & Share Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Ink & Share Blog Hop, where a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the globe come together to share loads of inspiration with you! Today is all about the Holiday Catalog, which launches for customers on September 5. Be sure to scroll down to the Next button and hop along to the other talented demonstrators participating, you won’t want to miss out!
I am so excited to share my project with you, so let’s dive in!

The first bundle I knew I had to get from the Holiday Catalog was Winter Woods. I am all about that #treelife living in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, USA). Trees just call to me, and this set practically begged me to bring it home! I knew I wanted to CASE the catalog and I did just that!

I sponge daubed the tree in Granny Apple Green and Call Me Clover for a variegated effect. I used some beautiful vellum for accent trees, and linen thread for the bow. I love how it turned out! If you want to see some behind the scenes on how this card was made, check out the video below!

Don’t forget about Bonus Days! Every $50 you spend in August, before shipping and tax, you earn a $5 coupon redeemable in September! That’s 10% cash back! Grab some of the supplies that I used on this card now, and you can use your Bonus Days coupon next month towards the Winter Woods bundle!

Kre8tors June Blog Hop Featuring New Annual Catalog

Welcome to the June 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! Today we are all about celebrating the amazing, brand new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog! This beautiful book is full of amazing ideas and products to make the next crafting year totally AWESOME! I am so excited to show you my project and I hope you hop around to all of the other talented demonstrators taking part in this month’s hop by clicking the Next button at the end of this post!

To check out the new catalog, be sure to visit my Catalogs page where you can download a pdf copy of this stunning 240 page book, chalk full of amazing ideas and inspiration!

For my project, I’m diving right in to the beautiful hostess exclusive set, Very Vintage. This stamp set is GORGEOUS! I love the vintage aspect, and the floral element is so pretty and delicate. It almost reminds me of something you would see on fine china.

Both of these cards are made in a similar layout, but the colors make them both VERY different! For the muted, brown and mint card I used Crumb Cake and Call Me Clover. For the bright, red and black card I used Basic Black and Lovely Lipstick.

Look on the page that features hostess exclusive stamp sets to see the sample that I CASE’d from the Annual Catalog. I didn’t have all of the same materials that were used in the catalog sample, but I think I did pretty darn well!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really like how the muted tones turned out on this card. I stamped off the Call Me Clover before stamping it onto my card mat to get a more mint green instead of the vibrant green it actually produces with full ink. There’s something about brown and mint green that I just love!

The red and black are also beautiful and, in my opinion, very elegant. It’s really hard for me to choose a favorite color scheme between these two because they both offer something very different. Which one is your favorite?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the sentiment, both the border stamp and the “You’re a blessing” stamp are from the Very Vintage set and make a very adorable accent to pop up this card. I also really love the little bee that comes with this set. He makes such a but accent and really blends in nicely to the muted background. I used the 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon along with the Pearls for a little bling on the muted card, and swapped out the Crumb Cake for the Whisper White ribbon on the Red and Black card.

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Card Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap for sentiment

ICS Blog Hop Introducing the New In Colors

Hello and welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share blog hop for June! So glad you could join us for this exciting hop to introduce the brand new 2018-2020 In Colors! There are so many wonderful demonstrators on this hop, so I hope you make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post and click that Next button to keep the hop going!

Introducing 5 brand new colors to the Stampin’ Up! Family. Here are the In Colors for 2018-2020!

I really wanted to play with one of the brand new stamp sets from the Annual Catalog too, so I decided to stamp this adorable octopus from the Sea of Textures stamp set in each of the new colors! I love how this stamp turns a clean and quick card into a fun set using each of the colors.

I was surprised just how bright the Pineapple Punch was! It shows up fantastically on the Whisper White cardstock. I used the Stamparatus to get the same placement for my sentiment on each card.

The Stamparatus made it so easy and quick to stamp these 5 cards. I can’t wait until Christmas card season arrives so that I can use this handy new tool to whip through all those cards!
