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?
