Pinkies Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer Catalogue 2015 Blog Hop

BloghoplogoThank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Spring/Summer Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

It’s been almost two weeks since the launch of the Stampin’ Up! Spring/Summer Catalogue and I must say these two weeks have been my busiest two weeks ever! What a fantastic response there’s been to get hold of these amazing products. Don’t forget that you can choose a Sale-a-bration item for each £45 you spend at the moment, until 31st March. (Request your copy here)

The card I have to share with you today was made before Christmas for my cousins little girl Emily. Emily turned four on the 4th January and she had a wonderful Frozen themed party and she could open of shop just selling Playmobil Princesses and horses! My card is a little fairytale in it’s self, a hot air balloon ride floating up into the clouds.

Stampin Up UK Stamp with Sarah Berry Pinkies Spring Summer Blog Hop Celebrate Today

I’ve used the ‘Celebrate Today’ stamp set which is on page 11 of the Spring/Summer Catalogue. The set  includes 17 stamps available in Photopolymer only and covers lots of different celebrations, wedding, new baby, birthday and graduation.  Also available are coordinating Balloon Framelit Dies to cut out the balloon, bunting and bows. As if it couldn’t get any better than that, both of those items are available as a bundle, where you save 15%!

To start I cut out my card blank and matt from Soft Sky card stock. Next I stamped the balloon basket in Bermuda Bay ink, and made myself a cloud stencil using a scrap piece of card and a circle punch. I used a sponge and Stampin’ Up!’s white craft ink to bring the clouds to life.

Next the ‘happy’ balloon was stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe ink onto Whisper White, and cut out with the balloon framelit on my Big Shot Machine. The ‘birthday’ wording is stamped in black ink on top.

The name ‘Emily’ are letters from the brand new stamp set ‘Sophisticated Serifs’ which is on page 44 of the Spring/Summer Catalogue. To create the 3D look, the letters are actually stamped twice, once in Whisper White Chalk Ink and secondly over the top but slightly to the right in Soft Sky ink.

To finish the card I used the stars stamp as a background image, rather than what it is intended to be used for at the bottom of the card and also on the envelope. The birthday cake stamp with candles is stamped on the inside of the card where you would write your message, and it’s is from the ‘Big Day’ Sale-a-bration stamp set.

Thank you so much for reading my post today, next up is the lovely Kim Price, I can’t wait to see what she’s made!
