SDBH - May - Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek...

Good evening, tonight I am joining in with the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for May where we are sharing everything 'new' with some amazing Sneak Peaks from the 2019/20 Annual Catalogue coming on 4 June!!!

One of the many advantages of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is that we get to see the goodies several weeks in advance of their launch and have the opportunity to purchase a selection of these goodies.

Today I am sharing with you a suite which really caught my eye called Come Sail Away.  It has a fantastic stamp set, dies, paper, embossing folder, Memories & More cards, twine and embellishments.

This stamp set is great for using with different background techniques.  The first technique I used was to mix some re-inker in Night of Navy and Balmy Blue together with some Frost White shimmer paint.  I screwed up some tissue paper and blotted on to some Whisper White cardstock.

I then teamed it up with one of the cards from the Memories & More cards, added some twine and an embellishment to complete.

I then used a technique which I cannot for the life of me remember the name of where you stamp your images repeatedly until there is no ink left on your stamp.  I did this in several colours until I had covered my background.

Finally, this one isn't a background technique but I mixed some Night of Navy ink with some Frost White Shimmer Paint and dabbed it all over the laser cut frame from the Memories & More cards.  The lighthouse is also from the Memories & More cards.  I attached my greeting under the background paper on the inside of my card and added a little magnet which holds it closed.  The other magnet is hidden under the wheel.

I think I am a bit addicted to this suite and I hope I may have inspired you a little today.  Please continue through the hop to see all the amazing sneak peak projects.

Thanks for dropping by.
