January Blog Hop

Jan Blog Hop Badge

Welcome to our first blog hop of 2014. This month we are excited to show you the new products available in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog as well as a preview of the free products you can earn through Sale-a-bration at the end of January.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from  Susan Itell #4 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Jan 14 Blog Hop Both

The new Occasions Catalog emphasizes “Watercolor” so I thought I’d use two of the new stamps and punch to highlight watercolor.  Both of these cards are 3 1/2″ by 5″

Jan 14 Blog Hop Peaceful Petals

For this card I used the new Peaceful Petals Stamp Set (133107), Whisper White Cardstock (100730), Cajun Craze Cardstock (119684) and Pistachio Pudding Cardstock (130020).

I used VersaMark (102283) and Black Embossing Powder (109133) to stamp the flower and verse, and Pistachio Pudding ink (131177) to stamp the leaves.  The coloring was done using Stampin’ Write Markers Regals (131262) and an Aqua Painter (103954)

The flower is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

Sorry, no punch for this one…all hand cut.  🙂

Jan 14 Blog Hop Petite Petals

This little Thank You utilizes my favorite new stamp set…Petite Petals!  I love Forget Me Nots and this little flower is about as close as you can get.  Luckily this set also has a companion punch (134822).  The verse came from the new Peaceful Petals stamp set.

I used Whisper White Cardstock (100730), Pacific Point Cardstock (111350), and Old Olive Cardstock (100702).  Four ink colors were used – Pacific Point (126951), Marina Mist (126962), and Midnight Muse (126860) for the flowers with watercolor blending and Early Espresso (126974) for the verse.

Three of the flowers were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I added some Candy Dots Brights (130931) to make them stand out.

The next stop is Peggy Noe #6 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and  I hope to see you next month.
