Welcome to our first Blog Hop for 2016. I am so pleased to be here to show a new stamp set or two from the New Occasions Catalogue, I am sure you also love getting your hands on some new stamps as well.
The sketch that Teneale has given us is a square card to play with see below. If you have just arrived here you most likely came from Maree and I cannot wait to see what she has made for us.
I had fun making this card and knew straight away that I would be using one of the new flower stamp sets called Birthday Blooms, its such a pretty stamp set and the papers are gorgeous too. You can find the suite of items on page 9 of the new catalogue.
I white embossed onto shimmy white cardstock and then using my aqua painter and Blushing Bride and Old Olive reinkers coloured the blossoms in. There are some beautiful papers in the birthday Bouquet Designer Series papers and I used this for the bottom of the card and trimmed with the gold ribbon. The greeting on the side of the card came from another handy set of sayings, also in the new catalogue called Greatest Greetings, which I embossed in Gold.
Now no card is every complete without an inside.
I again used a strip of the designer paper and embossed the greeting in gold embossing powder.
Now its off to see what Teneale has in store for us.
Should you wish to purchase any if the items used in my card, you can purchase from my on-line shop by clicking in any of the items your interested in below.
