Stampers By The Dozen - Kids Creations!

Happy Saturday readers!  The weekend is finally here and it's time for another monthly installment of the Stampers By The Dozen blog hop!

Last month we celebrated all the parents in our lives and this month we are focusing on kids!  Kids cards always seem to be one of the hardest for me to create.  I don't have children of my own (but I have two fur babies I treat like my kids!) and creating kids cards can be difficult when I hardly make cards for kids.

For my project, I wanted to keep it simple but also highlight all new colors from the Annual Catalog.  Our new 2018-2020 In Colors are perfect for kids cards as they are bright and core colors that work with any palette.  Adding the new Gorgeous Grape color to this line up makes a perfect rainbow palette to work with.
I love these colors together!  I wanted to keep it simple since kids like simple and the bright colors are gender neutral and can be used for anything from a baby shower to a birthday to a confirmation.  
I used the new Birthday Backgrounds stamp set to create the splatter effect behind the swirls and the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set for the sentiment and little triangles next to the saying.  I used the Swirly Scibbles Thinlits dies, which I just recently got after putting them off for a while, to bring in more color.  I used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, and the Blueberry Bushel swirls to pop them up and give the card depth.

June 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Annual Catalog!

Awe Sunday!  The day to relax, unwind, and share a project with a new hop I am apart of!  Welcome Stampin' Blondie to the Kre8tors Blog Hop!
No automatic alt text available.
I'm very excited to be apart of this new blog hop group and I know you will be inspired each month by the projects that we share.  For this month's theme, we are hopping using new products from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  I am in love with this new book!  The cover blows me away and the color revamp is beautiful.  For my project, I am using the new Love What You Do photopolymer stamps and the Garden Impressions 6x6" Designer Series Paper.
While this paper is a little busy for me, it's starting to grow on me the more and more I use it.  I stamped my image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and used Mango Melody ink (a new color added in this catalog) to give the flowers some pop.  I stamped using Lovely Lipstick, which is a 2018-2020 In Color, and adhered my saying and flower pieces using Stampin' Dimensionals.
These new Pearlized Doilies have to be one of my favorite new embellishments in the catalog!  One side has a pearl finish to it while the other is Whisper White, and is a great base for changing them into any color you want.  On my card, I sponged Mango Melody onto the Whisper White side to change the color and tie in the Designer Series Paper color to the flowers.  Two of the new Glitter Enamel Dots give it just a little bit extra.

Make sure to continue on with our hop to see all the other great projects.  Next up is Melissa Tennison showcasing her new annual catalog project.  Her project can be found HERE or by clicking the next button below!

ICS Blog Hop - The New 2018-2020 In Colors!

Welcome everyone to another month of the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!  June is here and with it comes the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and five new In Colors!

Isn't our new blog header great?  It's so bright and vibrant and I love it!  Speaking of bright, our new In Colors are bold and bright too!  When they debuted these colors during On Stage in April, I was so very excited to see some colorful hues that are great colors we were missing from our line up.

While these colors look a little muted in the photo above, they are anything but that.  My project this month is using the new Hostess set called Hand Delivered.  This set works perfectly using the new Stamparatus tool and lines up great with it.  
I love the simplicity of this project and with the set having multiple sentiments, you can switch them out and make this card for a number of occasions.  I decided on a Thank You card as I needed one for someone.  This primary card could be modified to be in any color scheme too!
I stamped her using Tuxedo Black Momento ink using the Stamparatus to line up the leg stamp with the frame stamp.  I colored her legs in with the new Petal Pink colored Stampin' Write marker and her skirt in the Lovely Lipstick Marker.  A little bit of bling on her skirt adds some dimension.  In the background, I stamped the flowers from the same set using the Pineapple Punch ink and the polka dot paper is from the 6x6 inch In Color paper stack.  I colored the Silver Edged metallic ribbon using the Lovely Lipstick marker and ran a single line of Pineapple Punch Grosgrain Ribbon to tie it all together.
