Pinkies Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - 2014 Annual Catalogue

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 those who have joined me from Anne-Marie's blog - wasn't her project gorgeous? I just love how she has used the products from the new catalogue!


I have made this cute card which focuses on 4 brand new products from the new annual catalogue. The first thing you will notice is the card base which is a luscious new in-colour - Blackberry Bliss.  You will then notice the leafy image which is one of 6 images in the Bloom with Hope stamp set (there are also 4 sentiments - one of which I used on the card as well). This new exclusive hostess set is very suited to another new product - Blendabilities.

What are Blendabilities? They are Stampin' Up!'s new alcohol based markers. You will need to use a water based ink to stamp your image to prevent any bleed when colouring in - so Stampin' Up! now stock Momento Tuxedo Black ink which is the ink of choice for crafters to use when colouring with alcohol based markers.


One of the other great things about Blendabilities is that they can also be used to colour in your rhinestones and pearls – which is just perfect for a matchy matchy girl like me!


The final new product I have used is one of the punches from the new Itty Bitty Accents punch pack. I was disappointed when I heard that the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack was retiring from the last annual catalogue, but as soon as I saw this new trio of punches I forgot all about missing the old ones! This new set includes a heart, star and an adorable shaped mini flower which I have used here. Don't you just love how the pale cool colour of Pool Party is a great contrast with the vibrant Blackberry Bliss?

To make this project you will need:

Cardstock/Paper: Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, Pool Party  Stamps: Bloom in Hope (Hostess 2014/15)  Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Old Olive Blendabilities, Rich Razzleberry (dark) Blendability (for colouring rhinestone)  Tools/Accessories: Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Pool Party Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Rhinestones, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Paper Piercing Tool, Essentials Paper Piercing Kit, Simply Scored Stylus (for dimension to flowers)


So what are you waiting for? Do you want to get your hands on some fabulous new product? Well you can order from my online shop 24/7 or if you prefer contact me directly. And if you are local to me why not hold a party and get your friends to come along for some crafting fun!
