Pinkies Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue Blog Hop.........



Welcome back and thank you for stopping by today for Part 2 of the Pinkies Spring/Summer Blog Hop. We are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects today, using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep on hopping. We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

If you have arrived here from Caro's blog, a big hello to you.........

I was so excited by the new Spring Summer Catalogue I had to use some of the lovely DSP To make a special card. It was for my brothers fiancé for her birthday earlier this week. I made this design as she loves the vintage look. She really liked the crimped strips of paper and I love the flowers matching the New DSP.




I made this with layers of DSP, First Edition Speciality Paper and Natural Composition Speciality the New Tea for Two DSP from the Summer Catalogue, this was cut, torn scored using simply scored and crimped. I also used the Blooming Marvelous stamp set free with a £45 spend during Sale-A-Bration.




The pearls were added and buttons are from the New Catalogue ...Artisan Embellishment Kit. The Happy Birthday banner is from the itty bitty banners stamp set but I cut this out myself along with the flowers where I did some rock and roll stamping on the flowers using Island Indigo to darken the edges this was to to mirror the effect from the flowers in the jug.



I used the embossing designer frames folders to cut out the DSP jug and flowers, torn around the edge and stuck on top of Very Vanilla card stock. Behind I added soft suede card also put throughout the big shot embossing folder Vintage Wallpaper to add texture



The inside was also stamped with the flowers and leaves from the stamp set, inked in Pool Party and Baja Breeze with the leaves in Certainly Celery The top corner has some matching torn DSP. Some edges were distressed and pealed back to add to the vintage look.

If you want to order from any of the catalogues please call me on 01904 492366 or email me at dawn@theluxuryinkpad.co.uk. Remember for every £45 spend you can select an item from the Sale-A-Bration products for FREE.
