Welcome to our January Mini Blog Hop Number Two. 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. This is our second hop for the month as we wanted showcase the new Occasions Catalog and the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
You should be coming to my blog from Lisa Kmiec. After your visit with me, head on over to Jayme Ziemer. 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.
For this hop, I used two of my newest stamp sets, Beautiful You and Avant Garden. Beautiful You is from the 2017 Occasions Catalog. I think it's going to be a very popular stamp set and one of my favorites. Avant Garden is from Sale-A-Bration. It's one of the free stamp sets you get when you place a $50 order. And, for both projects, I used the new Watercolor Pencils also found in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.
For my first card, I used the Beautiful You stamp set which is found in the 2017 Occasions Catalog. I love the images and sentiments in this stamp set. For my colors, I chose are Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. All of these colors come in the new Watercolor Pencils set. I can see hours of fun ahead of me.

For my second project, I used the Avant Garden stamp set. It's one of the free sets offered during Sale-A-Bration when you place a $50 order. I love this flower image that is in the set. I used the Old Olive and Real Red Watercolor Pencils and blurred outside the lines of the image. The sentiment I used is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.
