Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop: Theme - 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Image may contain: text

Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer (The Crafty Thinker) from Australia.
Our theme this month is the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue - we'll be providing you with sneak peeks!  

I've chose the stunningly beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper, some new embellishments and the soft and luscious Petal Pink colour.

Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper rescued a bland and blotchy watercolour background
The base card is Bermuda Bay with layers of Very Vanilla and Petal Pink cardstock which is a new colour in the revamped colour collection.

Do you, like me, have some failed watercolour backgrounds lying around in your craft area?  Well, dig it out ..... Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper to the rescue!

This was a piece of Watercolour Paper that I'd spritzed with colour (water and Ink Refill in a Stampin' Spritzer) but I was never happy with the way the colours blended and I also thought it was a bit bland.  So I stuck some of the gorgeous laser cut paper on top and it developed some wow factor!

I added some copper Leaves Trinkets and a Tinted Faceted Button which I first threaded with a length of Natures Twine.  TIP: The Nature's Twine is 3-ply and I removed one of the plys so that it would fit through the button holes easily.

At the time I made the card, I didn't have any new ribbon - so I've used a piece of the retiring Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron Ribbon.

All of the new products will be available from 1 June 2018.  If you live in Australia, don't have a distributor and would like your own copy of the new Catalogue - please contact me.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed these cards.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer - please see the list below and click on the next person on the list to hop through all of the people to see all of our projects.  You don't want to miss any!
