Pinkies Blog Hop - Spring Summer 2013 Seasonal Catalogue

We’re so glad you could join us on Part 1 of the Pinkies Spring/Summer Blog Hop. We are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Spring/Summer Catalogue. We have so much inspiration to share with you so we will be offering two Blog Hops - Part 2 will be tomorrow (Sunday 10th February). Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep on hopping. Do come back tomorrow to see what Part 2 has in store. We love comments, so please tell us what you think!

Welcome to those who have joined me from Sandie's blog - weren't her projects gorgeous?

My projects are focusing on the new Just Married stamp set.  My first project is a card to congratulate the married couple.

Next is an invitation using the same colour scheme and idea, but with the "his" and "hers" sets of shoes - actually I probably should have shown the invite first - oops!

Paper/Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Versamark, Crumb Cake marker, Pretty in Pink marker, Soft Suede marker
Stamps: Just Married, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Flowering Flourishes, Make a Wish
Tools/Accessories: Heat gun, clear embossing powder, gold embossing powder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Self-adhesive pearls, modern label punch, Very vanilla seam binding ribbon, blender pen, 3/4" circle punch, 1/16" punch

Besides the 2 sets of shoes and the wedding cake, there are 2 other stamps - a car and some champagne glasses.  Although all the stamps in the set have a wedding theme, I also would like to show you how I came up with something entirely different when I tried to think 'outside the box'!

Paper/Cardstock: Shimmery White, Brushed silver cardstock
Ink: Versamark, Illuminate Glimmer Watermark inkpad, Real Red marker
Stamps: Just Married, Make a Wish, Flowering Flourishes
Tools/Accessories: Heat gun, silver embossing powder, rhinestones, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, corner rounder punch, Stampin' dimensionals

Hopefully you grasped that when I made this card I was thinking of Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz when she clicked her ruby slippers together saying "There's no place like home, there's no place like home......"!  Just click on the image to get a close up of the ruby slippers and the soft background effect of using the Illuminate Glimmer watermark inkpad with the stamps from Flowering Flourishes - it creates a beautiful subtle effect on the shimmery cardstock.

If you would like to order any of the products I have used to create these projects please contact me and I will be happy to help.  And don't forget for every £45 you spend between now and 22 March, you will get to choose one of 17 fabulous free products in Sale-a-bration!

Have a great weekend and make you sure you stop by Paula's blog as I know she has some fab projects to share with you using the Secret Garden stamps and coordinating dies.  Click on the next button below to take a look....
