ILWS - Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the monster In Love With Stamping Forum Mini Catalogue Blog Hop .

There are 56 demonstrators taking part in 4 different hops. To find the other hops visit Erica and she has a list of all demonstrators taking part

If you are starting here, grab a cup of tea and a biscuit or if you have hopped here from Clare's Blog, welcome, and I hope that you liked Clare's creations as much as me.

If you would like a free copy of the New Mini Catalogue then please contact me. Click the link in the side bar to see either a flash version or download a PDF copy.

Here is the first of my creations all based around around the Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. These folders are extremely versatile and I have only shown you a couple of ideas to get you started. Interested to learn then contact me and host a Big Shot Workshop.

This was a swap that I created for Regional Demonstrator Training that took place in Edinburgh last week. I have created a similar Mother's Day Card but used pearls for a more feminine look


SUPPLIES:
Stamp: Curly Cute, Occasional Greetings
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Card: Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride
Dies: Manhattan Flower Textured Impression Embossing Folder
Accessories:Silver brads, Corner Rounder, Basics Pearls, Mat Pack, Piercing Tool


I love how the next card turned out. I wanted to use strong colours so teamed up Concord Crush with Tangerine Tango. I think it is quite dramatic. I have run my Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write along the edge of the raised flower - carefully - and used Tangering Tango Watercolour Wonder crayon and aquapainter to colour in the petals.


SUPPLIES:
Stamp: Growing Green
Ink: Tangerine Tango
Card: Concord Crush, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla
Dies: Manhattan Flower Textured Impression Embossing Folder
Accessories: Concord Crush 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon, Tangerine Tango Watercolour Wonder Crayon, Aquapainter


Thanks for stopping by and the next blog on the hop is Sharon who has amazing creations for you to see.


Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow - I hope that my In-Laws like the cards I made them!

Happy Stampin'
