Stampin' Addicts 2015 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2015 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop! Join us as we trip the light fantastic through our very favorites of the many catalog offerings....Should you get lost or want to chat about the hop, here is the Chat Thread on Stampin' Addicts.

You've probably just arrived from Holly's Rubber Redneck blog where she highlighted the adorable Hooray It's Your Day set.

I'm using the Painted Petals set....There are so many great possibilities for these stamps!

First, I used the set with this week's MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge, MOJO380. I've always used Pacific Point with Old Olive for floral cards, but I like the Wild Wasabi...It really brightens up the card.  I used the "back" of the tulip print in the Painted Blooms designer series paper (the Wild Wasabi and Whisper White stripe) as well as the Pacific Point floral.  There are so many lovely designs in this paper pack! 

It is difficult for me to resist adding dimension to flowers, so I cut out a couple of extra layers of petals for the images which were stamped in Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise.


Next, the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder provides lovely coordination with this set.  I love that we have the Pink Pirouette Blendabilities now too....Light Pink Bling? Yes, please.  I used Melon Mambo on the edges of the Petals and on the sentiment to make it darker...easy, but necessary imo. :)


Finally, I just made a quick tulip 3X3 card....I can't remember the last time I made a card of any size (even inchies from a few years ago) this simple, but I like it. It is Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz, but I'm afraid it looks different as pictured.





Now it is time to continue to Kim's Stitchin' n Stampin' on Paper blog and see her lovely designs with the super cute and versatile, Butterfly Basics set. Thanks for hopping with us today!
