Artfull Stampers Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi!!!  I promised I’d be back today!!!

It’s Stampin’ Up’s! New Annual Catalogue Time!!!  To celebrate, some of our Team – The Artfull Stampers – are sharing fabulous projects showcasing a selection of the gorgeous new products available in the 2012-2013 Catalogue!!

You may have hopped here from Alisa Tilsner’s Blog.  I’m stop #2 on the Hop and I’m glad you “hopped” in.

I’m showing you some of the gorgeous Patio Party Designer Papers, the Make a Cake Stamps and the Fun Bitty Banners Framelits and Itty Bitty Banners Stamps.  I’ve made four matching cards and a little gift box/bag to gift them.  I’m also using the DELICIOUS NEW COLOURS!!! Oh My! Summer Starfruit is a firm favourite followed closely by Midnight Muse!!

And when you open it up:

The box fits four cards….and *technically* it should hold envelopes.  It would have, but that I got so carried away I forgot to make my measurements to my envelopes. Sigh.  BUT. I fixed it!  I put the envelopes in a clear cello bag and added a belly band around the middle to hold it to the box.  See?! Fixed!!  It proves my theory: “There are never mistakes, only Embellishment opportunities!!

All the cards:

  1. Hi Madonna, wow, these are fantastic – bright and lots of fun! I have to admit that I wasn’t too sure about Summer Starfruit as a colour, but seeing what you have done here I may have to re-assess!! Just gorgeous!
    Happy Stamping!

  2. Amazing projects, I love the card carrier – looks fun, and your cards are bright and cheery, oh and love your theory too, very amusing and so very true lol. Have a great weekend.
