To celebrate the start of a new Annual Catalogue a group of demonstrators from Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators are doing another blog hop. Whether you have hopped on over from Jackie's Blog or are starting here, just follow the link at the bottom of the page until you hop around to where you started.
I always love a new catalogue and this year is no exception, with new stamps and products to spark creativity. One of the things I love about this catalogue is the range of new products that coordinate with existing products, so have made that the theme of my post for the blog hop.
Firstly there is the stunning Watercolor Wings stamp set and framelits that coordinate with Butterfly Basics. This is a three step stamp set where you add layers of colours to the gorgeous butterfly then cut out using the matching framelits. Additional new product on this page is the lovely Brick Wall embossing folder, the Tags & Labels Framelits used to cut out the sentiment, and the lovely delicate flowers stamped around the edges are from Birthday Blossoms.
Here you can see how I have actually stamped the butterfly twice, the second time cutting out with the new Butterfly Framelits to give some added depth and life to the card.
This next card uses the cute little flowers again, this time to add some detail to the base of the card. The cute strip across the card is new Boho Washi Tape; and the wreath of spring flowers the butterfly is sitting on is another new stamp set Circle of Spring, that coordinates with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits from previous catalogue. This card is made using only In-Colours, don't the colours from last year and this year go so well together?
I have used the butterfly stamp from Butterfly Basics to stamp the bottom layer, then cut it with the new solid butterfly from Butterflies Thinlits, and layers of Blackberry Bliss and Vellum for the top layers of the butterfly.
My final card again uses the lovely Circle of Spring stamp set this time stamped in Versamark and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I have added a layer of Gold Foil Sheet to help make it pop. Photographing this was tricky to give a good idea of how rich it looks. To add some highlights to the wreath I coloured some of the flowers with Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write Marker. The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set (the same one with the cute little flowers used on my previous two cards).
Time to hop on over to see what Ria has created for you:
