Blogging Friends Blog Hop – New 2017-18 Catalog

Welcome to this month’s “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!”

Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? We are Stampin’ Up! demonstrators all across the U.S. and Canada. Most of us haven’t met in person, but love Stampin’ Up and want to share with you! Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!  Each month we’ll have a different theme; this month it is The NEW Catalog!!

There are so many new products I want to share with you , but I will start with one set for today.. the new In-Colors! You may have already seen some in the Eastern Palace Suite.. but here are all 5 of them:

I’m pretty sure Lemon Lime Twist is my new favorite. These are such fun colors, and I wanted to show how well they work together. So, the card I have for you uses all of them! I recently made a watercolored card using Lemon Lime Twist with some of the other non In-Colors, and I liked it so much I decided to make it again using the new ones, so here it is:

How fun is this??  There are a lot of new things going on with the card. New cardstock, new stamps, new ribbon, oh my!
I used the new Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, as well as watercolor paper and some Basic Black. The new ribbon is the 1/2″ Finely Woven ribbon in Berry Burst. I used all the new In-color ink pads as well as the re-inkers. The sentiment is from the new stamp set Colorful Seasons. It’s a wonderful set with stamps for every season! It even has a coordinating die cut set available in a bundle. 🙂
The funky little lines on the circles are also part of the stamp set, meant to be the centers of flowers.. but nothing says they have to be used for that!

Here is a close up so you can see the Wink of Stella I added to some of the circles, which, by the way, are the size of a plastic pop bottle lid.

I look forward to making many new projects with all these fabulous new colors! Don’t worry, when I do I will share them with you so you can be happy, too!

Also, if you missed it on the calendar, I have a class this Saturday, and the deadline is coming up soon! Please let me know if you would like to attend, and you can see these new products up close and use them to make some new cards. It’ll be a good time!

I can’t wait to see what everyone else has to share this month, as there is just so much excitement over the new catalog!

So, please take the time to hop on through the rest of the Blog Hop today, you will be heading over to Tammy, and I hope you have fun looking through all their projects, too!
