New Catalogue Inspiring Inkin Blog Hop

I'm so excited that 20 demonstrator's from the Inspiring Inkin' Team, have taken the plunge to showcase some new products that are coming up in the Stampin' Up! 2014 - 2015 Annual Catalogue!!
What can I say there are definitely going to be some ooohs & aaahs in this packed out catty! So get those wish lists ready! Here is a sneek peak of what you can purchase from 1st July which is only 3/4 days away! (depending if you included today):



This is the new Traveler stamp set where I have created a birthday card for a male friend of mine. This stamp is great for men & women cards, I was drawn to the train, ship & camera! I thought I can use these on men cards, scrapbooking & designing my own wrapping paper in whatever Stampin' Up! Colour I want!
You may have noticed that the colours I have used on the card don't look familiar! Well you are right, I have used 2 of the 2014 - 2016 in colours 'Mossy Meadow' & 'Hello 'Honey.' I thought I would show you a postcard which showcases all of the in colours the other 3 are 'Blackberry Bliss', 'Lost Lagoon' & 'Tangelo Twist' here is what I created :


Here is a close up:


Well I hope you have liked what I've showcased & I hope you enjoy what the rest of the team have created! You should be able to use the blog hop icons below!

Delicate Doilies UK Regional Swap

Recently in the UK Stampin' Up! Demonstrators got together for some training & inspiration. When attending these events many demonstrators make swaps to inspire others with different techniques. 

So this is what I came up with: 




The photos didn't come out brilliantly! But I was browsing some blog posts just before I went on holiday a few weeks ago & saw Jen's Page I really loved what she did so wanted to take part in the sketch & colour challenge that she also took part in so I headed over to Viva-la-Verve




I combined some products that are retiring at present in the UK as well as some products from the current spring/summer Catalogue. Do check out what is retiring by clicking on the shop now icon top right. Some products have already sold out, everything is on while stocks lasts. 

Here are the products I used:

Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Perfect Pennants
Inks: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry & Smoky Slate
Paper: Naturals White, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Accessories: Gingham Garden Washi Tape

Thanks for stopping by!
