Pinkies new seasonal catalogue blog hop…

Welcome to our first ever Pinkies Blog Hop.  We’ll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn Winter Seasonal Catalogue.

Our blog hop buttons will help guide you on your way.

We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

For today’s hop,  I took one sentiment, some designer series paper, cardstock and glitter

and made a set of 12 Christmas cards.

Cherry cobbler is a beautiful shade of Christmassy red, and embellishments were easy to make using the merry minis punch pack.

Next I used lucky limeade – almost traditional, but with a modern twist …

And for a completely modern look I used marina mist with very vanilla and whisper white …

beautiful blues with added dazzling diamonds and adhesive rhinestones for sparkle …

And finally, I used neutral colours, putting crumb cake with whisper white and very vanilla too …

with a splash of cherry cobbler here and there …

The patterns of the snow festival and festival of prints designer series paper complement each other beautifully, and the colours match and tone too, so both sets co-ordinate perfectly.

Here’s what you need to make today’s cards – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!

designer series paper (dsp): snow festival, festival of prints; cardstock: very vanilla, whisper white, cherry cobbler, lucky limeade, crumb cake, marina mist; stamp set: teeny tiny wishes; ink: early espresso; punches: modern label, merry minis punch pack, decorative label; accessories: adhesive rhinestones, stampin’ dimensionals, two way glue pen, dazzling diamonds.
