Stampin' Addicts Occasions Catalog Blog Hop
Stampin' Addicts Occasions Catalog Blog Hop, which features amazing products from the new Occasions Catalog, starting today! Sit back and enjoy some wonderful ideas using the newest stamping goodies!
If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Yapha's post featuring the bundle Just Sayin'. Yapha has some beautiful projects! Today I will show you some projects using the set Happy Congratulations.
Birthday Card - I always start off playing with a new stamp set by creating a straight-forward card or two. This set naturally lends itself to strings of paper lanterns across a portrait-oriented card.
Bordered Sentiment technique to create the illusion of another layer. With a little more practice, I was able to create the entire front panel as one layer. Which do you like better?
Stamps: Happy Congratulations, Express Yourself; Paper; Basic Gray, Whisper White; Ink: So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Pacific Point, Basic Gray, Basic Gray marker; Accessories: White baker's twine, Perfect Polka Dot EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
Happy New Year! - The recent Artisan Blog Hop project by Jen Timko inspired me to create a shimmery gold New Year's card. There are many gold-toned products in the Occasions catalog, which coordinate so well together! The dotted washi tape just says "party".
Stamps: Happy Congratulations, Happy Hour; Paper: Whisper White, Gold Foil Sheet; Ink: Summer Starfruit marker, Gold Metallic Encore Pad; Accessories: Rhinestone jewels, Watercolor Wonder washi tape.
Chinese New Year Party Ensemble -When I first saw this set, I thought about using it for a Chinese New Year-themed party. This year is the Year of the Horse, falling on January 31. The ensemble includes a party invitation in a Gold Fancy Foil vellum envelope, gold coin mini envelope, and fortune cookie and take-out box party favors.
paper fortune cookies are created from a 4" circle cut-out, filled with gold-foiled Hershey's Kisses, and the fortune strips are stamped with the sentiment, "May happiness be your destination". The take-out box comes from Stampin' Up's old pattern library.
Pull the invitation out of the stitched vellum envelope to get a closer look.
