Pinkies Stampin' Up! 2016-17 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop!

Thursday 26 May 2016

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous
projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons
at the end of each post to keep hopping! 

Welcome to my blog! I hope you find some inspiration here today to go to your craft stash and make something beautiful. Wasn't Sarah's project lovely? I am so excited to see all of the other projects the Pinkies have made!

My project features four new products from the forthcoming Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue. Can you spot them all?

The main feature of this card is the stunning new Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. Copper is so in right now, its everywhere I look from home furnishings to kitchenware to jewellery. 

Did you know we will be having Copper Metallic Thread in the new catalogue? I literally cannot wait to get my hands on it (and a billion other things!)

Next up we have a brand new stamp set called Layering Love. Check out page 71 of the new catalogue, it's in a set with 5 other clear mount stamps. I've used the stamp with the sentiment "Enjoy the little things" for the card front and the stamp that says "Sometimes the (smallest) things take up the most room in your heart" for the inside. I love both of these stamps, the fonts are pretty cool aren't they?

This project features one of the new In Colours (2016 - 2018) called Flirty Flamingo, I've used the Flirty Flamingo cardstock in-between a layer of Basic Black and Basic Gray. I thought I wouldn't like this colour but when I started combining it with existing colours I found that I really loved it! 

And finally, I used Flirty Flamingo ink to create the watercolour effect. I've used the Shimmery White cardstock as my base as it works really well when watercolouring with Aqua Painters.

Flamingos are EVERYWHERE at the moment. Some fellows demos have started to use the hashtag #ifoundaflamingo. on Facebook and Twitter each time they come across a Flamingo somewhere. Just you wait, you will be seeing them EVERYWHERE now. In fact, we have a flamingo stamp in the new catalogue!

It's now less than a week until the new catalogue goes live! I need to grab 5 minutes (okay, probably an hour or two) to go through the catalogue again and finalise my wish list, I cannot wait to place an order on Wednesday. I'm especially looking forward to working with some of the new DSP and of course the new stamp sets & dies!

Next up is Tracy's blog. Press 'Next Blog' to head on over to check out what she has made.
