Pinkies new catalogue blog hop…

We’re so glad you could join us on our Blog Hop. We’ll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping. We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

My projects today highlight the happy day stamp set and the gorgeous quatrefancy specialty designer series paper (dsp) which looks so pretty teamed with the new smoky slate ink and cardstock. A piece of the printed window sheet from the same dsp pack made a fancy border for my card …

And to match the card, I made some pretty packaging using the quick and easy, but fun to make, tag a bag gift box, decorated with strips of dsp and stamped images from the mosaic madness and happy day stamp sets, which work beautifully together …

The tag was embossed with the modern mosaic embossing folder …

… and my paper snips were brilliant for cutting out the stamped images to make the embellishments.

I did a little stamping on the tissue paper for the inside too, so everything matched.

The new smoky slate ink colour is a beautiful silvery grey – I just love it!

And I love how the card and box look together – they are going to make the perfect gift for someone …
