Pinkies Blog Hop

We're so glad you could join us on our Blog Hop. We'll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects from the new Stampin' Up! 2012/13 Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep on hopping. We love your comments, so please do tell us what you think!

An extra special Hello if you have joined me from Sarah's blog.




Today I would like to share with you 4 cards I have made using a stamp set found on page 33 of the new Stampin' Up 2012/13 Catalogue "You're Amazing".

I think this is an extremely versatile set and right on trend inspired by the Circus, with the cute ticket images and wonderful sentiments - and if you don't fancy cutting out those ticket images by hand there is also a matching Ticket Duo Punch available (p.182).
It is my little girl Isabel's 5th Birthday tomorrow and this is the card I have made for her. I think it has the right amount of bling (thanks to the fabulous new Silver Glimmer paper and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter) and pink that any little girl would love - and of course she is "Amazing".
The lovely girly pink colour is Primrose Petals In Colour and the daughter stamp came from "For My Family" stamp set.

 The second card features some of the lovely Patio Party DSP and some of the gorgeous In Colour Stitched Satin Ribbon. I have also highlighted the word 'Amazing' with some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

 My third card is my attempt at a masculine card - but don't you think this image could be useful for all sorts of occasions?
The card base was embossed using the New Larger size! Chevron Folder.

 For my final card I have used a masking technique with the balloon image - the sentiment was cut out using the Apothecary Accents Framelits set of 4 dies. The largest of the dies coordinates wonderfully with the "You're Amazing" sentiment too.

 Well that is all for today. I have a 5th Birthday Party to prepare for - eeeek 15+ children at the last count!
I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards. If you are looking for some more crafty inspiration then please hop over to the lovely Catherine's  Blog.
Thank you for stopping by. x
