Morning crafters !

Welcome to the Stampin' Up! New Catalogue Blog Hop, organised by one of my Downlines, Laura, over at In Love With Stamping. 

Please grab yourself a cuppa, forget the boring Saturday chores for a while and enjoy hopping round a few blogs looking at creations we have made from items in the Annual analogue 2014/15. 

Now, you may have just joined me from the lovely Jo @ Jo always has wonderful projects to share with us.

Simply click on the links either forwards or backwards until you have completed the whole loop and arrive back where you started.  

Today, I have chosen to showcase some of the lovely New In-Colours for 2014/16.  

As the blog hop commences, I will just be starting one my 12-hr Fun Days of Crafting with some lovely ladies at my home, now a regular scheduled event when my husband is away with the British Legion Riders. 

Todays projects will be using many products from new catalogue, including the new In-Colours Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.

My first card used a Blackberry Bliss A6 base card and spritzed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz #118772.  

The background paper was an A5 sheet of white card stock I had created using a screwed up ball of paper.  When my Stampin' Up! deliveries arrive, they are always well packed with brown paper which very often ends up in the recycle bin !

Having previously experimented with scrunched up tin foil, cling film or copy paper, all producing slightly different effects, this was recent technique, using my 'recycled' waste from my last delivery :-). Tightly scrunched ball was tapped onto ink pads and randomly stamped over entire piece of card.  Make sure to use a different 'ball' for each colour !

The rest of the card includes a sentiment from And Many More #134273 (W) #134276 (C), Thick Baker's Twine #135639 available in In-Colours 2013/15, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels #119246 coloured using the new Blendabilities markers, available in a range of colours. 

My next card features the lovely new Watercolour Thank You #135377 which my ladies will each be receiving in their class kit today. 

The background has been stamped using Work of Art stamp set #134111 (W) #133114 (C) and finished off with some gorgeous Stitched Satin ribbon in Hello Honey #133671, and available in all the new In-Colours, and a few Rhinestone jewels. 

My last card features the lovely new Moonlight Paper Stack #133701 for the background. 

The sentiment is from Bravo #135380 (P) and only available in Stampin' Up! new Photopolymer. I must admit is was sceptical as I love my wood mounted stamps, but really pleased with these. You simply have to try before judging. Begin totally clear, it is super easy to place exactly where you want image. 

The background effect has been made using two wet wipes and dotting drops of each of the re-inkers in Blackberry Bliss #133648, Hello Honey #133649 and Lost Lagoon #133650.

The small flowers are from Something to Say #134177 (W) #134180 (C) using Blackberry Bliss ink pad # and punched using Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack trio punch set #133787.
