Pinkies Blog Hop showcasing brand new catalogue products

Pinkies team of Stampin Up demos blog hop

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!

It is a sneak peek for you today!  Only 4 more days till you can order all the new goodies and get stamping! If you have not already requested your own paper copy of the annual catalogue please don’t hesitate to get in touch as I am sending them out for free!

I have used two new stamp sets and a new pack of designer series paper!

Pinkies Annual Catalogue Blog Hop 2016

Look at those little ladybirds – adorable!

And I specifically chose that sentiment in the stamp set as I thought it would be perfect for Project Life.

The background paper is actually white embossed with small circles.  I used the new sponge brayer to colour the background red and then rubbed the excess ink off the embossed circles.

I also inked the edges of the Sahara Sand cardstock with the sponge brayer using Soft Suede Ink and then distressed the edge with my nails.

The little ladybirds are from an adorable hostess set called Love You Lots and I do love it lots!  I added some crystal effects to the ladybirds to give them a shine and embossed the sentiment and the ladybirds to make the black stand out.

So time to be inspired and pop on over to the next person in the Pinkies Blog Hop and see what they have made…
