Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop - May 1

It's a whole new month, which means a whole new box of goodies to create with!  This month we were so blessed to get a box filled with sneak peek items from the upcoming 2015-2016 catalogue. These items were so hot off the press, that some shipping delays occurred for our Artisans overseas. Show them your love and support this week! :)

Today I will be sharing projects created with two different stamp sets. I have a lot of samples for you today, so sit back and enjoy! :)

The first samples that I am going to share with you were created using a new Hostess stamp set - A Whole Lot of Lovely - 138942.

Colour Combo - Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush and gold.

Can you spy new goodies? The image is stamped in a new In Colour called Watermelon Wonder. The embellishment is from the new 2015-2015 In Colour Blossom Accents - 138383. Lastly, the patterned paper at the bottom of the card is another new In Colour called Cucumber Crush. That paper is from the 2015-2017 In Colour Envelope Paper assortment. The threads are from the Jute Ribbon in the Occasions Catalogue.

Colour Combo - Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Watermelon Wonder.

I added a medium pearl to the center of the Blossom Accent - 138383.

Quick Tip: The medium pearl is not a perfect fit. It won't reach the bottom, so it floats a bit - which is not stable. FIX: Add a folded Glue Dot in the bottom of the center of the blossom and the pearl sits right on top perfectly!

Colour Combo - Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.

I used the Starburst Framelits for the Melon Mambo CS. Get them while you can!! I can't believe they are retired! Who decided that??? So sad. Anyways, let's move on to more sunny topics :) The base of this card is Cucumber Crush and the matching envelope Paper is used for the banners.

I used the Stampin' Write Markers to colour onto the stamp. That allows me to have multiple images of the stamp in different colours.

Want to see more? Ok, let's move on to some samples created with a stamp set called I Think You're Great - 138712. This stamp set is so fun and playful! 

Colour Combo
 - Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Smokey Slate and Coastal Cabana.

Seriously! How much fun are these! Too cute!! I love 3x3 cards and these images were perfect for these little cards. I used some of my favourite colours paired with the Kraft paper.

After this fun set I moved on to create another trio of cards, this time using the Note Cards. Love these, too!

Colour Combo - Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Pool Party and Kraft.

I used different punches to add accents to the each of the cards. Super simple and easy to do! These would be great for a quick make n' take.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
