In Love With Stamping June Blog Hop

Hello and welcome from Kara's blog if you have just hopped from there. If you are starting here, make sure you go round all the blog in the hop until you get back to mine to see all the gorgeous projects in the blog hop.

Stampin' Up have recently released 3 new colours that will be fully avilable in the new Colour Renovation line up from October when our new catalogue is released. These three colours are Melon Mambo (a gorgeous bright pink), Rich Razzleberry (a rich purple) and Soft Suede (a mid brown). They are available in the ink pads, cardstock and limited edition polka dot grosgrain ribbon, all of which are absolutely gorgeous.

There are also some gorgeous new designer papers available, called Cottage Wall which use Old Olive, Orchid Opulence and the new Rich Razzleberry. These are just to die for.

This blog hop, organised by a group of demonstrators on the In love With Stamping forum, has been designed to show you a huge range of different products and techniques that will hopefully inspire you to use these new three colours.

My first project uses the new colours with a favourite set of mine from the mini catalogue, Vintage Vogue and the coordinating wheel Very Vintage and the new extra large bird punch, also available from the mini catalogue.

I made 2 milk cartons, one in each of Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry and used the Very Vintage wheel in the same colour ink, for a subtle tone on tone colour. I used the bird punch to make my little birdie and painted them with some champagne mist shimmer paint, also available from the mini catalgoue, to add a bit of shimmer to them. The holder I made using the Soft Suede cardstock and again stamped using the Very Vinage wheel in the same colour ink. Decorated with some polka dot ribbon and this was all done!

I made a matching card so it can be given as a whole gift set.

My next card uses the beautiful Bird On A Branch set, also in the mini catalogue, and was one of the projects that Amanda did at the recent team training she led. (I told you didn't I, Amanda, that this set was gorgeous? LOL)

And my final project is a mini concertina book designed again by Amanda and it showcases the different patterns available in the Cottage Wall papers set.

And these are just a couple of the pages inside.

And that mine all done, so be sure to hop on over to Sue's blog and see what gorgeous projects she has in store for you.
