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

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects using products from the new 2020-21 Annual Catalogue. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

I don't have any new products from the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue yet, however I do have a few products that have carried over to the new catalogue. The stamp set used for my card today I only purchased a couple of months ago and this was my first time playing with this set.

The layout for my card was inspired by the latest Inspire Create Sketch Challenge #071. I realised when putting my card together that I needed to flip their sketch, but I still think it works.


My pretty For You card was made using the Beautiful Moments stamp set that has carried over to the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue from the 2020 Mini Catalogue.

I stamped the image of the lady in the field of flowers plus the extra flower stamp in Memento Black ink on some Whisper White cardstock and coloured my image using Stampin' Blends. The Stampin' Blends used were Ivory, Bronze, Pool Party Light, Highland Heather Dark, Old Olive Dark and Daffodil Delight Light & Dark. I cut out the image using the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and ran it through my Big Shot twice to make it smaller and more like a square. I then wrapped some Linen thread around my die cut square.

The For You sentiment comes from the Wildly Happy stamp set (which has also carried over to the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue) and is also stamped in Memento Black ink on to some Daffodil Delight cardstock. This was cut out using the narrow rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I ran this one through the Big Shot a couple of times to shorten my panel.

My card base uses Old Olive cardstock, which I ran through my Big Shot using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
