Pootlers Team Blog Hop – Spring/Summer Catalogue

Today I’m taking part in the Pootler’s team blog hop showcasing our favourite products from the new Spring Summer catalogue. There’s a lot to love in this catalogue and it was hard to decide what to share with you today. I decided on my favourite bundle Butterfly Gala, which contains a great stamp set and the best butterfly fly punch I think Stampin’ Up! has come out with, with two gorgeous butterflies. I’ve paired this bundle with the new Crackle Paint background, which has brought back many happy memories of playing with crackle paint as a kid, so I’m glad we now have the same effect but much quicker.

The first card I made was in Highland Heather, a colour I haven’t used much but has created a lovely soft card.

For the next card I brightened it up by using Lovely Lipstick, this was my favourite card for highlighting how good the Crackle Paint background is.

For my final card I used Flirty Flamingo just so I could add some of the lovely new 1/8″ sheer Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, which I adds a lovely soft feeling to the card.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today and I’d love it if you would visit some of my fellow teammates and see their wonderful creations with the new products. Simply click the blue button below and follow the links to each blog.

Pootler’s Team New Catalogue Blog Hop

It’s that time of year again when my team mates and I are celebrating the start of a new catalogue with a blog hop featuring our favourite new products from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. There are so many gorgeous products in this catalogue that it took me a while to decide what to make, but the gorgeous Dashing Deer bundle was calling to me so here’s what I came up with after a little play.

Teamed with the  Joyous Noel Speciality DSP and a basic layout using the Layering Ovals Framelits as a focal point I think I’ve created three lovely and very different looking cards. This gorgeous paper has copper foiling on one side of each sheet and is the perfect background for that deer die cut.

To finish off this first card I embossed the Happiest Christmas Wishes in copper and die cut from the label in the Petals and More Framelits set  and I also added three copper flowers which are dies from the Detailed Deer Framelits.

For the second card I wanted the colour combo to be Merry Merlot and Gold, which shows that the back sides of the Joyous Noel paper are just as gorgeous. I love how well that deer stamped, I think its just beautiful. For the swirly corners I definitely recommend using the multipurpose adhesive sheets as those swirls are delicate.

For my third card I wanted to add more interest to the oval in the middle so I created a background by firstly sponging on some Pool Party to the top of the oval. I then stamped three trees from the Timeless Tidings stamp set. To create the snowy effect I cut out another oval and then cut it in half using a wiggly line. I then took the bottom half and covered it in Wink of Stella which when dried gave a lovely glistening effect just like snow. I think the new Frosted White Shimmer Paint would also have a similar effect.

So thats my little celebration of the Dashing Deer Bundle from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue.
