Pootler’s Team New Catalogue Blog Hop

Today the Pootler’s Team are hopping with projects from the new Janaury to June Mini Catalogue. This is a great catalogue and I love that there are so many new floral sets which are my favourite! So it was really hard to pick a favourite to share with you today but I’ve chosen the Daffodil Daydream set which features two gorgous floral images and some lovely decorative elements along with two senitments.

So here’s what I’m sharing today:

I’ve stamped the main Daffodil image and then die cut with the matching Daffodil Dies. I then coloured with a mix of Daffoidil Delight, Pale Papaya, Old Olive.

Here’s a closer look at the Balmy Blue version:

The background paper comes from the Simply Marbelous 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper which is a free product available during Sale-A-Bration.

The Flirty Flamingo version also uses the same paper:

I’ve used a Basic White matt cut from the Hippo and Friends Dies to mount my daffodils on and I’ve finished the card off with some Brushed Brass Butterflies which are gorgeous.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this project, to take a look at what my team-mates have made just click the link below:

Turtle Friends Birthday Card

How cute is this little turtle? Turtle Friends is definitley one of the first sets that caught my eye in the new catatlogue and the best thing about this stamp set, the matching punch so you can go turtle mad.

For this card I’ve stuck to just turtle stamped in our new Evening Evergreen onto Soft Succulent cardstock. I’m not usually a green person but I do love these two new colours, especially the Evening Evergreen which I’m hoping features heavily in the up and coming mini catalogue in July, it’s never too early to think about Christmas!

Anyway back to this card, the card base and background are both Fresh Freesia. The background layer I ran through the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder as I think it works perfectly with the pattern on the turtles shell.

I’ve added a few diecut balloons from the Hippo & Friends Dies and some of the new Loose Flower Flourishes in Pale Papaya, we need these in every colour I LOVE them!!

Happy Crafting
