Hello and welcome to our final blog hop for 2015 – this year has raced by! You may have arrived here from Mikaela or started here – either way, welcome!
This month’s theme is to give a sneak peek of the Spring/Summer catalogue and Sale-a-bration (SAB) – if you’re new to Stampin’ Up! this is the best time to buy as you get freebies for every 45 pounds you spend! Apologies for the missing “pound” sign – I’m visiting my brother & sister in America and their keyboards are different!
I love the new catalogue and the SAB freebies – hope you do too!
First, I made a fun birthday card using the Hello stamp set. The party hat reminds me of the one from the dinosaur set in the Annual Catalogue, which I also fell for! Inside, I used the Birthday Girl stamp, from the same set. My sister, who is a Stampin’ Up! demo in the US said this was a very “me” card:
I have to say that her photo set-up is better than mine – by the time you read this I’m hoping Santa will have been kind!
I used a couple of colours here – Lost Lagoon and Rose Red – I love the way they go together!
Next I took advantage of my sister’s stash and used the Rose Garden framelit dies and Rose Wonder stamp set (available as a bundle):
This is an intricate die, but the new catalogue has a new tool to help get all those fiddly pieces removed – the Big Shot die brush – it was first thing I ordered in my pre-order! Want to get things early? Sign up as a demo 🙂
So, this easy card has a base of Garden Green, Vanilla mat and the rose in Rose Red (again), along with the sentiment.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas – thanks for hopping along with us this year, looking forward to sharing with you in 2016!
Next is Emma, I’m sure you’ll enjoy her projects (there’s a full list below if you need it).
