ILWS new catalogue blog hop …

Hello and welcome to the In Love With Stamping (ILWS) blog hop.

Today sees the launch of the brand new Stampin’ Up!® annual catalogue and, together with the recently launched autumn/winter catalogue, we now have more choice than ever before of the beautiful Stampin’ Up!® products.

To celebrate, a group of us on In Love With Stamping got together for a blog hop to showcase lots of fabulous items from both catalogues, which are now available to order.  You should have arrived here from Beckie’s page – if not, do make sure you take a look at her beautiful projects.

For today’s hop, I chose to make Christmas projects using something old and something new …

I used one of the gorgeous stamps from the ornament keepsakes set with the matching die,

these are available to purchase separately from the autumn/winter catalogue,

or you can purchase them together as a bundle and make a great saving …

I added a strip of the gorgeous festival of prints dsp in a matching colour,

a tiny bow of cherry cobbler scalloped tulle ribbon and some adhesive pearls.


For my second card, I used the delightful decorations set with the matching ornament punch,

this time stamping a strip of very vanilla with one of the smaller stamps from the set …

more tiny tulle bows and adhesive pearls completed the look.


 And finally, for my last project, I used a different stamp from the same set,

stamped 5 images in cherry cobbler and punched them out with the ornament punch,

scored and folded them to make this cute decoration for my Christmas tree…

And here are all three projects together …

The sentiment is from another one of my favourite sets – beautiful season,

and was stamped in early espresso ink.


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

cardstock: naturals ivory, very vanilla; stamp sets:  ornament keepsakes, delightful decorations, beautiful season; ink: cherry cobbler, early espresso; accessories:  festival of prints dsp, corner rounder and ornament punches, holiday ornaments framelits dies, big shot machine, cherry cobbler scalloped tulle ribbon, linen thread, tombow multi glue, mini glue dots, stampin’ dimensionals, adhesive pearls.

I’d be delighted to order any of these items for you and have them delivered to your door at any UK address. To place your order, you can email me at or call me on 0772 980 8152 and I’d be happy to help.

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.

I’d be delighted to order any of these items for you and have them delivered to your door at any UK address. To place your order, you can email me at , or call me on 0772 980 8152 and I’d be happy to help.
