JOY OF SETS 2018 CATALOGUE BLOG HOP!

I am taking part in a Blog Hop today with the Facebook group – The Joy Of Sets.

You might have just come from Kirsten’s blog. (click on the arrow below to go back if you missed it or you will get there after going around the hop).

Today’s theme is a project using any product from the current 2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

Focusing on ANY product from this current catalogue is pretty overwhelming really.  There are so many wonderful products.  What do you choose!! After trying a few options I chose the Sitting Pretty Bundle.  I made a card set in some fun bright colours.

I used the Brights Paper stack and the co-ordinating Glitter Enamel Dots in Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo.

The lovely ornate seat is heat embossed in Copper and then cut with the Pretty Park Framelits. I added a vellum scallop circle under the seats and cut a small heart that is in the Framelits set in the matching colour.  The sentiments and the fun swirl is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.

Here is a close-up of the Gorgeous Grape one so you can see it more clearer.  They are all the same layout.

Now you can continue the Blog Hop and see all the other creations.  Head to Susan’s Blog by clicking on the arrow below.

Happy Hopping,

COLORFUL SEASONS CARD SET!

I made this set of cards a couple of weeks ago when I was playing around with the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  Now I can share them with you.

I made one in each colour of the Color Theory Paper Stack, so Dapper Denim, Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Berry Burst.  I was a little unsure how to use the Paint Strip pattern in the Paper Stack. I went with just a strip of it along the bottom edge of the white card mat before adhering to the Thick Whisper White card base. It’s a bit hard to tell but I cut the chair out in Crushed Curry and raised it up with Dimensionals and on the Dapper Denim one there are 2 die-cut snowflakes.

I love each of the sayings in this stamp set.  I think this card set would be nice to give to someone to encourage them along.  I should go and make a little card box to give them in.  Or, you can just give one to 4 different people to encourage them along.  I think there are many people who could use a little pick-me-up. 🙂

Thanks for looking,

Hope your weekend is going great.
