Welcome to the July Pals Hop! This month, we’re featuring fantastic new goodies from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog! Enjoy the HOP and get some creative ideas for using new stamps and accessories from the amazing creations that the Pals have come up with.
You’ve likely hopped over from Linda Fisher, I’m stop number 2 on the PALS HOP and I’m glad you hopped in! I’ll help you “hop along” from blog to blog where you’ll find great ideas for paper crafted creations from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you’ll be back on track!
I have three projects for you today. The card above was a quick card I pulled together and the next two were inspired by other cards I have seen recently, including one from the new catalog. It is possible to be inspired by others’ creations and make them your own!
*The card base is the lovely new Calypso Coral. Isn’t it pretty? And I’m in love with the new ruffled ribbon that coordinates with the new In Colors. It’s gorgeous!
*I used a beautiful piece of DSP from the Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper pack. It’s a fun set of paper that coordinates with the House & Home and Now You’re Cookin’ stamp sets.
*I inked the sentiment in Basic Gray and stamped that onto whisper white. I then inked the cute lamp from House & Home in Calypso Coral and stamped off onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping on top of the sentiment.
Here is card number two. This card was inspired by the card seen on page 150 of the new catalog. I fell in love with the design, but wanted something more feminine.
*The card base is Rich Razzleberry topped with a piece of DSP from the Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper Pack.
*Aren’t those blues just stunning! These are the two blues in the 2011-2013 In Colors. They are Pool Party (lighter blue) and Island Indigo (darker blue)
*I used my handy Stampin’ Write Markers to color the sentiment.
*Some ruffled ribbon and a button transform this card into a feminine beauty.
This card hits girly birthday on the head! I made this for our neighbor’s daughter who turned three this past week. I think she’ll love it! I know my daughter was looking longingly at it. I saw this card here and just knew I had to have one! So here is my version.
*I know you’re lovin’ that Designer Series Paper, right? The paper on this card is available as a Hostess Benefit purchase. I know I’ll be wanting more when it runs out. I love the colors.
*That cute sentiment is from my new favorite birthday sentiment set. It’s also a Hostess Benefit called Happiest Birthday Wishes. It has 11 birthday related sentiments and stamps.
*A little Concord Crush Ribbon and a Basic Rhinestone add the finishing touches to this fun card.
