January Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Pals Blog Hop of 2015. We hope your new year is off to a great creative start. To celebrate the start of a new Stampin' Up! year, we are showcasing products from our newest catalog this month - the Occasions catalog. You may also see new Sale-a-bration products too. If you don't know how to earn free Sale-a-bration products - contact your Stampin' Up! demonstrator to learn more.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Peggy Noe at http://prettypapercards.com/. Use the full lineup below to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the new projects.

There are so many beautiful cards being shared on Pinterest and other sites that make my jaw drop with their individuality. Very intimidating! I have not seen the Love Is Kindness stamp (137131 pg 32 in the Occasions Catalog) used in this layered fashion yet and love the 3D effect of a full bouquet it creates. I stamped the image twice and fussy cut one of them to place atop the original stamped image. i have not mastered the blendablilities pens as of yet but am having fun trying. What I am in love with is how you can color your pearls and bling to match your project. I lightly sponged the "newspaper" to soften all the white and create the illusion of texture. I rounded it out by adding a sentiment from the Lots of Thanks stamp set on the bottom. i cannot wait to recreate this card but will do multi-colored flowers next time, for a more dramatic effect. 


The next stop is Kim Jolly at http://stampinartfully.blogspot.com/ # 23 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next month. Love to hear your feedback - leave a comment and make my day!
