Pinkies Blog Hop: Spring/Summer catalogue

Thank 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!

If you have arrived from Suzettes's blog, welcome! Did she made a beautiful project or what?
I think it's great to see all projects, so versatile and gorgeous!

For this blog hop, I made four cards with the Label Card Thinlits. This set of thinlits is just so easy to create a great card in a wink! Just embellish with some patterned paper, some small items from the thinlits set and a stamp, and you're done. Take it a step higher? Use ribbon, an embossing folder, washi tape or buttons.


For all four cards I used the Retro Fresh DSP. Really love it, this paper is absolutely one of my faves from this catalogue! The text stamps are from a FREE Sale-a-Brations stamp set called "See ya later". Really great, and so versatile! I stamped the stamps with my Stampin' Write markers. This way you can choose a fitting color for each part of your stamp. Just colour each part with makers in different colors, and then stamp it on your paper. Done!
For the left card I used three strips of Retro Fresh washi tape, some Essential Wooden elements.
On the card on the right, I used the Decorative Dots embossing folder (FREE Sale-a-Bration item!) and glued a strip of Natural 5/8" chevron ribbon from the left to the right. The ribbon looks a bit sturdy in the catalogue to me, but it is actually a really soft and smooth ribbon, love to work with it! Two banners were punched with the Banner punch (also a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!). The last thing I added was the button (from the Basic Metal Buttons) with some Whisper White Baker's twine.

These two cards I kept really simple.
I "extended" the card on the left, so there is more space to write a message to the recipient.On this card I added some chevron ribbon and a button again and two strips of washi tape.
The right card was decorated with the Arrows embossingfolder and two different diecutted arrows. They come in the Label Card thinlits set! How cute is that? You don't just have the thinlit to cut your card with, but also 10 smaller items to decorate your card! Some bling bling added, and another card done ;-)

So, now it is time to do some more hopping to look at the project ... has made!
Thank you for hopping to my blog, and have fun hopping further! seperator.jpg
