Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop

Have you heard? Stampin' Up's new catalog has come out. Of course you've heard! You don't live under a rock, do you? ;)

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop, featuring a selection of stamp sets to get you revved up for the new catalog season. Make sure you have those wish lists near by, because my fellow Stampin' Addicts will knock your socks off!

If you have been following the blog hop in order you've just seen Sara's wonderful creations featuring Easy Events. I have stamped samples from the set Under the Big Top for you.

Fun Interactive Card - These cute children's sets always make me think of interactive or pop-up cards. I had a lot of fun creating this pop-up stage scene. The front -

And inside -

Birthday Circus Train - I used the Precious Moments birthday train as inspiration for this fun little train (click to enlarge).

I attempted to create three-dimensional characters by stamping twice and gluing a 1/4" square box in between images. My daughter can't wait to get her hands on this one, although I got some grief about there not being a train car for the "strong man". Guess what we will be doing this weekend?

Scrapbook Page - I have to say, if you like making traditional scrapbook pages, you'll have to get some of the Big Top Suite products. They make cute page elements so easy! This is a page of taking my daughter to her first circus this past Spring.

Don't forget to come back on Monday for more pictures and details on how to make these projects. If you aren't yet a member of Stampin' Addicts, you can sign up here. Make sure you check out the next stop to see what Jennifer has created for you using Up, Up & Away. Her projects are always amazing.

OMG That train is adorable!!! and the card is awesome too.. I really like how you used the Top Note and it's the sky behind it. Your scrap page came out great.. I've never really been good at scrapping even with the help of all your stuff reminds of the Water For Elephants book and then the movie really brought it to life.

Your pop up card is FABULOUS!! I never cut stuff that much...I'll just admire your amazing work! LOL

RhondaG - The Stampin' Bunny said...

WOW! Fantastic ideas and execution!!! You rock this set!!!

Deb B (Debadoo) said...

This is all so stinkin adorable!! From the curtain with the lion bounding out, to the stage card with the 3 rings, to the train......omgggggg how cute! I really didn't care much for this set, but I am so glad that I already placed my order before looking at the hop or it may have gone on this order, and there really wasn't room for it on today's order since there were other things I really needed, like cardstock! lol I can't believe you fussy cut that ring around the lion though!

Cindy said...

Oh. My. Heck. Your pop-up stage card is AMAZING! I love the striped Big Top tent on the front with the lion leaping through, the detail of the three rings inside, and that train is da bomb! (And why DID you leave out the strong man????) LOVE all this, and really appreciate the amount of cutting you did to make it work!

Karen said...

Oh my goodness you have done absolute wonders with this set. Your card is amazing.

Holly / InkPaperStamps said...

Your projects are just delightful, Heidi! I'm especially taken with the lion jumping out of the tent--what drama and excitement!

Instead of Under the Big Top it should be OVER THE TOP! Wow these are just too fun- so many details! I really like the 3D front on the first card with the clouds behind and the ropes at the corners.

The train and the tent card just blew me away! I had no interest whatsoever in any of the Circus stuff until I saw these two projects! Wonderful stuff.
