Welcome to the another of the ESAD Blog Hops, this one is to display our favourite item from the New 2017/2018 Annual Stampin, Up! Catalogue, if your come from another blog it was most likely Terri Hawke and I wonder what her favourite is?.
I found it hard to do choose as there are so many that I love, in the end I went with Climbing Orchard, even though I have loved the Marble Background Stamp.
This set has two orchard designs, one was stamped on Powder Pink Card stock using Berry Burst ink, both from the new in colors for 2017-2019. The leaves were stamp on Lemon Lime Twist Card stock using the Lemon Lime Twist ink.
I rather love the branch out of the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, thought it gave another diminution to my projects. I stamped the Enjoy today with and then heat embossed using the beautiful Cooper embossing power. It really pops, don’t you think?
I had stamped onto Crumb Cake Card stock and then added my orchards using Dimensional’s and glue dots. Did you know Stampin’ Up now have mini Dimensional’s, they come in very handy with this project.
Keeping the theme of the same orchard, I used the Brick Wall embossing folder, smeared with Crumb Cake ink to get a motley effect on the wall and then using the same branch and flowers placed them in a small photo frame.
Such a great little frame to using with some of the Stampin’ Up! projects, as you can see in my photo. Hope you like them.
I then moved onto the next orchid design in this set, wow can you believe you get so many flower sets in one stamp.
For this card I used Whisper White Cardstock, stamping down with the Berry Burst Ink, using a dabber to color each petal using Power Pink Ink, before cutting them out with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.
I used the Petal Burst Embossing folder to give the white a background before attaching it to Berry Burst Card base.
