Hello my friends!! I received a package of goodies from the Stampin’ Up! catalog this evening and HAD to dive in! It’s funny, I knew the box was on it’s way, so when I saw the sketch this week over at CAS(E) this Sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to create!
This new stamp set called Garden in Bloom is a new set in the 2015-2016 annual catalog and I’m a sucker for flowers…what can I say 🙂 I love the sketchy, watercolor-y feel of these flowers. I inked them up in Mint Macaron which is a brand new color…love it!!!
The MISTI made the placement of my flowers a breeze, and I was pleased to note that these photopolymer stamps have a built in placement guide which is SOOO helpful!! Not all stamp companies do this, so it’s a definite plus in my book!
I added a few silver sequins, also in the new catalog, and a bit of Wink of Stella to my flowers. Isn’t the sentiment adorable? It’s from another new set in the catalog called One Big Meaning. And it’s a new favorite of mine!!
A few comments on some of the items I have used here today:
- Stampin’ Up! has added a thicker Whisper White card stock to it’s product lineup and I can heartily endorse it. It’s a perfect weight of cardstock for card bases.
- Their new DSP paper packs are now a 6 x 6 size, perfect for card making, and you get 4 of each pattern in the pack for a total of 48 pieces of paper!
A friend of mine, Justin, has started his own challenge so of course I want to play along and support him and he has made that as easy as pie with Challenge #1:
And since today, these are all my new favorites, I fit right in to this challenge! Please visit the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge blog and play along!
Thanks for your visit today. I appreciate each and every one of you and love to receive your comments on my work. Of course, If you ever have any questions about a product or a technique that I have used, I am only an email away!
