Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: New Annual Catalogue


Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop. Today we are welcoming 3 International Superstar Team Members - how exciting :)

This month we will be sharing projects inspired by the New Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

Like many people, I share all my cards and projects on Pinterest. I have a couple of cards that have been pinned over 1,000 times (which I find pretty exciting). But my most pinned card, which has been pinned over 3,000 times is a card I created close to 2 years ago using the limited edition Thoughtful Branches stamp set.

I really love this card and it is still there in the list of some of my all time favourite cards. So I decided after recently getting my hands on the new Rooted in Nature stamp set, that I would recreate my card using this new set.

Here is my original that inspired my cards for today. 


If you would like more details on this card, you can visit my blog post by clicking here.


Here are my new versions:





Not sure which I prefer, the new ones or the old. What do you think?

*********************************************************

To celebrate the release of the June All Star Tutorial Bundle, the Design Team are showcasing each of the designers with a blog hop.

Each designer will be sharing a project using the same products as their tutorial project, however they will NOT be sharing their project that is part of the June Bundle. The projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and you won't see them anywhere else.

My tutorial project was created using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and co-ordinating Orchid Builder Framelits. The project I am sharing with you today, has also been created using this stamp set and co-ordinating framelits.




For this project I teamed the Climbing Orchid stamp set and co-ordinating Orchid Builder Framelits with the stunning Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (which has carried over to the new Annual Catalogue). I just love being able to use up my little DSP scraps.... waste not, want not I say and I got to #loveitchopit.

My orchid leaves were coloured using Stampin' Blends, which I am excited to say are back in stock. Yay!
