Hello! Annual Catalog 2016 – 2017 Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Hello! Annual Catalog 2016-2017 Blog Hop! You’ll be hopping around 11 amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrator's blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products.

Currently you’re visiting Em Fairley in the UK. Hello there! You can continue hopping by using the previous and next buttons at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.

For my teepee card I've teamed a couple new InColors, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo, and two new stamp sets, Playful Backgrounds and Designer Tin of Cards, with an enduring personal favorite, the Bitty Butterfly Punch...

If the size of the sentiment panel looks a little small, it's because I've shrunk it, by cutting twice...

Regular readers will know I love to create my own "DSP." This card is the first time I've used two of the four stamps in the Playful Backgrounds set together and I love the look. Hope you do too?

If teepee cards are new to you and you'd like to know how to create one, please do come back on Monday to see the pictorial.
Card: Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White
Ink: Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum
Stamp sets: Playful Backgrounds and Designer Tin of Cards
Tools and embellishments: Lots of Labels Framelits, Bitty Butterfly punch and Basic Rhinestones
Adhesives: Tombow and Stampin' Dimensionals

Thank you for visiting today. The next stop is the talented Julie Davison. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

  16. Super card Em! Ages since I made a teepee card, and they're such fun - need to rectify that! And a great way to die cut a shape to fit a sentiment too!
