Blog Hop Badge 2_2-001

Wahoo its nearly time for a new catalgoue and to celebrate, the team I am part of are doing a Blog Hop! You can start from here and click your way through or you may have arrived from Rachaels Blog. Anyway the set I have chosen to share with you is called Holiday Home. It is Photopolymer and has 24 pieces! I made two cards with it both using just Blackberry Bliss and Very Vanilla. The first card also uses the new Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. There is also a wee sneak peek of a special Hostess set coming up soon which is all sentiments called Good Greetings

Stitched with Love MDSM54

I have spent the last week or so sunk knee-deep in Paperwork but tonight I abandoned all that to the corner to CREATE! Of course I had a big sort out of papers today and my work top is very tidy for me so I don’t want to mess it up before I get back down to it tomorrow. Instead I created digitally using the MDS Monday card sketch as my inspiration. I actually really love this one and will probably give it a go traditionally too.

So I added the Decorative Dots (SAB download) as a layer over the base card and gave it a drop shadow so it looks like embossing. I used SAB brush sets, See Ya Later and Banner Blast. I cropped the heart off the top of the sentiment and added Black layers behind the banners and the two smaller ones have a coloured layer the same size behind them too. My Stitches embellishments came in handy to frame the Smoky Slate paper (Sweet Sorbet DSP – SAB download) and to “stitch” down the twine over the banners. The final touch was a diamante over the O in love.

Sneak Peek Alert

So as you will know there is a new Stampin’ Up! Supplementary catalogue being released soon (28 Jan) and as you may not know one of the benefits of being a Demonstrator is being able to order new product before it is released to the public. I was able to order some new product earlier this month including this cute set Petite Petals with coordinating punch and then of course make this card.

The dotty pattern along the side is from another new stamp set called Happy Watercolor and so is the sentiment.

I have a pile of these new OCCASIONS catalogues waiting to go in you hot little hands so flick me an email if you would like one
