Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop. I hope you'll enjoy our sampling of new catalog items!
If you're traveling in order, you may have arrived from Holly's Rubber Redneck Blog. I am sure you enjoyed her lovely creations with the Garden in Bloom set. Should you get lost, you can find a complete list by going to the Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop Chat thread.
My stamp set choice is the Sprinkles On Top set on page 7 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog....(not to be confused with the Sprinkles of Life set that has the tree and ice cream with matching punch.) I think these donuts are fun and silly, and I hope you do too.
For this little Chocolate Donut holder, I used the Gift Bag Punch Board, but I chose NOT to punch the holes for ribbon. I think it makes a slightly neater presentation if you don't want a handle that might get smushed. I used Watermelon Wonder Cardstock and Chocolate Chip Ink. I markered the sprinkles in Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay to match the Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape. The sentiment was cut out with one of the NEW Lots of Labels Framelits. Simple and Fun.
This card uses the new Elegant Dots Embossing Folder which I think coordinates well with the candy stamp and sentiment in this set as well as the candy Designer Series Paper sheet from the Cherry on Top paper stack. For a main image I used the Amazing Birthday stamp with the Banners Framelits for a change. The colors were chosen for me by the DSP, and they are colors I like, but would not have normally put together. I like the new Washi Label punch even more than I thought I would too!
For this card, I used MOJO Monday Sketch number 405, MOJO405 . I enjoyed fitting the elements of this set into the sketch, but I understand if it is too busy for some tastes. :) The Happy Birthday Sentiment uses the Chalk Talk Framelit, but I cut it twice so both ends would have a point.
Now, it is time to continue to Kathleen's FA Stamper Blog to see her elegant designs with the From Land to Sea set.
