Stampin' Addicts New 2014 Stampin' Up! Catalog Blog Hop Flamingo Lingo

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2014 New Catalog Blog Hop. Each of us can't wait to show you our favorite sets from the New Catalog, so I hope you'll hop through to see some fun creations. Should you want to chat or see all the links in one spot, here is a link to the chat thread on the Stampin' Addicts website.

You may have arrived from Twila's Stamp A Little Longer blog. I really enjoyed her great designs with Bordering Blooms....Lovely color scheme!

I am using this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set....Each year Stampin' Up! provides an opportunity for us to buy a set that benefits this charity.  This year $3 from each set sold will be donated to RMHC.  I always get the set and usually really like it.  I like it especially well this year!

First, I have flowers and leaves in Florida Flamingo colors which provides a quick dress up for the French Fry box.  I used a little bit of the Flower Fair Framelits and the Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die as well as the Chalk Talk Framelit to create the Flamingo tag.  Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White were the colors I used.

Next, is the MOJO Monday sketch for this week, MOJO350.  I used the Lovely Lace Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background and used the All Abloom designer series paper stack for the Blush Blossom based color scheme and paper.  Tickled Pink is great for just a congratulations or for welcoming a new baby girl...

Finally, I just wanted to use a more Coral color with it. :)  I used the Striped Scallop Framelit for a background. The card is Very Vanilla and Calypso Coral...I realize it looks almost Tangerine Tango...sorry...To finish, I put pearls at the top of the card.

Now it is time to visit Holly's Rubber Redneck blog to see her lovelies with the Flower Patch set and matching Flower Fair framelits.

Hamburger Box Pig and Bunny

My daughter wanted to make something different than we'd seen online with the Hamburger Box Die. She has a friend who loves pigs, so we worked on that one together.  It is complete with curly tail (just cut with a circle punch) and blushing cheeks. She made the bunny all by herself though. :)  I'm a proud crafty mama. :)

In this Together Cards

For class last week, I let those who attended choose which image they preferred.  This new set is so fun and I think it will be really useful for me even after the Blendabilities become "old hat".  The new large polka dot Embossing Folder is SO nice too.  Perfect for mod styles. :)

Stampin' Up! Flamingo Lingo MOJO348

Flamingo Lingo is the new Stampin' Up! set that benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Three dollars from each set is donated, so I love to get it each year. I think it is an especially cute one this time too!

I used MOJO Monday sketch 348 (MOJO348) for my card.  The colors are Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Strawberry Slush, So Saffron, Whisper White and a touch of Wild Wasabi and Tempting Turquoise markers...

If you like this set, be sure and check back on June 20th for the Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop. I will be making a few more designs with this set, and there will be many more sets featured by other Stampin' Addicts.
