Stamp 'N Hop June Blog Hop - Hello to the New Catalogue!

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my contribution to the June Stamp 'N Hop blog hop. If you've come to my page from another Demonstrator, then welcome! If you're starting with me, then also welcome - take a look at my post then 'hop' on over to the next demo in the list. I'm Laura (AKA The Stamping Cat), a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from the UK. Our blog hop for this month is focusing on saying hello to our brand new catalogue. All of the products used in our projects in the hop can be found in the new catalogue.

For my project, I decided to use our gorgeous new stamp set 'Good Morning Magnolia'. I love the big feature flower in this set, and can see lots of lovely ways to use this set in the future. For my first project with this set I decided to silver emboss the  Magnolia flower on Crumb Cake cardstock and colour in with Aqua Painters. I find that by first putting white ink down (I use the ink refill and pick up with an Aqua Painter) and letting it dry, the colour that then goes on top really 'pops' - I hope you agree! I used Balmy Blue and Petal Pink ink for the flower and Old Olive ink for the leaves.

To finish the card off, I used the gorgeous background stamp from the same set, and stamped in Whisper White ink. I added a sentiment and mounted to Petal Pink cardstock. I really hope you like my finished card.

I'd love for you to hop on over to the next Demonstrator in the blog hop.


All products used are available in my online store:
