Painters Pallette 'on point' for a thank you.


Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!®  Annual Catalogue.  Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

If you have arrived here from the lovely Diana's  blog,  a really big hello and welcome.

One of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up!® demonstrator means you get to have a play with some lovely products before the Annual Catalogue goes live.

and playing I have... with Sweet Sugarplum, one of the 5 fabby new 'In-colours' for 2016 - 2018.
I teamed it with with Very Vanilla as my card topper and used touches of Basic Grey and Emerald Envy (another of this year's releases!) for my accent pieces and sentiment.

I used  the Artist's easel - one of the Stamps in the new Painter's Palette stamp set - but instead of using it for the picture effect as intended, I stamped 3 of them, opted to trim  and turn them  'on point'  for the quilters amongst you, - giving me what felt like an Art Deco, 1920's type effect with those stylised diamond shapes, once they were all mounted together.

What do you think?

The flowers are from the Love & Affection Stamp set and they are part of a co-ordinating  suite of products, everything from Stamps, and embossing folders to Designer series papers and toning card stock packs. I whiled away a little me time - fussy cutting them so I could pop them up.

My 'Thank you' is from another of the newly launched sets - 'Thankful Thoughts'. This is a great set of  5 pairs of sentiments in varying fonts, specially designed, so you can link the inside sentiment of the card with the focus one on the outside. Thank you Stampin' Up!®. for this.
.. but as ever, yours truly decided to use another stamp for the inside, (again from the 'Love & Affection' set) as I particularly liked the wording, and think it complements everything nicely..

The whole was then finished with my customary bit of bling and some sponging and the edges and it was ready. I love how it came together.

So a huge thank you for visiting and next stop is the lovely Michelle  - make sure you don't miss anything en route, as  there are lots of lovely things to see and all are sure to inspire as you hop around the complete tour.
