Wacky Watercooler May Celebration Blog Hop
Welcome to our May "Old Favorites Which Made the New Catalog" Blog Hop. Today's hop is all about those favorite products that made it into the new 2017 Annual Catalog that comes out on June 1st. I was so glad to see that three of my favorites will be around for another year.
Each month, on the third Thursday of the month, a group of us get together to hop and share projects from Stampin' Up!'s current catalogs. It's always a lot of fun.
You should be coming to my blog from Sheri Lee. After your visit with me, you'll head on over to Judy Markowitz. And, as always, our Hop runs in a circle. Whether you start at the top and go forward or start at the bottom and go backward, you will always wind up where you started.
My first project highlights the Beautiful You stamp set. With the stormy, rainy weather we've had here lately, which is to continue tomorrow, I thought a walk in the rain was so appropriate. I love how those Clarity Stencil Brushes let me control how much depth I want in any given area. Oh, I did sneak in one of my favorite sets that will be gone come May 31st. It's the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I'm really sad about that one. It made for some nice rain effects on my card.
Stampin Set: Beautiful You, Gorgeous Grunge, Jar of Love (horizon); Inks: Basic Black Archival, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate; Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White; Other: Clarity Stencil Brushes, Stamping Mask Paper
For my next project, I had to used the High Tide stamp set. I made the background using the Clarity Stencil Brushes and different inks to get the effect I wanted. I love the image of the lighthouse and the birds. For a finishing touch I added some sequins.
Stamp Sets: High Tide, Sunshine Sayings; Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Night of Navy, Old Olive; Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White; Other: Clarity Stencil Brushes, Fancy Frost Sequins
My final project is a shaker card made using the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies. I know, the paper I used is retired but it goes so well with the lightning bugs that I just couldn't resist. This is a CASE of a card done by Priscilla Ivler. To see hers, click on her name.
Stamp Set: Jar of Love; Ink: Basic Black Archival, Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker, Delightful Dijon, Smoky Slate; Cardstock: Crumb Cake; Patterned Paper: Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack; Other: Everyday Jars Framelits Dies, Foam Adhesive Strips, White Blizzard Glitter Drops (Nuvo)
