Brand New Products Coming - Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop

 


Welcome, and for those who are here for the first time, 

my name is Annette Ball I am an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada.  Today I am hopping with my friends on the Stampers Showcase Group.

 

The Theme this month is Sneak Peeks from the Annual Catalogue 

going live on May 4!!! 

Today's card was made to accompany the catalogues I hand out to to my customers.  I always include something to showcase the new In Colors as there is nothing quite like seeing them with your own eyes!! Plus I got to play with a couple new bundles!!

This card features Flowers of Friendship a stamp set and punch bundle and the Color & Contour stamp set and die bundle.

Each strip is 1" tall and 4" wide and I tilted them left and right behind this new scalloped die which has stitching 

The flowers were stamped from Flowers of Friendship and punched out and the leaves were just punched out.  I also used a blending brush to add some Soft Succulent to the scalloped rectangle and stamped the speckles from Color & Contour.





Hope you enjoyed my cards!  Please keep hopping along to see all the other amazing cards created by my Stamper's Showcase friends!!

Everything you see is available at my online store.  

Just click on the Canadian Flag to get there. 

You do have to live in Canada to shop from me.

And please leave comments..we Love feedback!!

 

Happy Stamping!!

AWOW - Monochromatic Rainbow


Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are here for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball, 
I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada.  

Welcome to Stampin' with the Bees.  

Thanks so much to Angie McKenzie for inviting me to participate in the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!!  I was so excited to be asked!! 

Today's Theme is Monochromatic Rainbows
and I got Coastal Cabana as my colour!! One of my Favourites!!!
But honestly creating rainbow cards is my FAVE!!

I paired my Coastal Cabana with it's friends Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and the sad to see you go, sorry it took me so long to love you Pretty Peacock.

So here we go...



I cut various sized strips of Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Pretty Peacock. then glued them to a piece of whisper white in a random pattern.  Then I trimmed all the edges.  The flowers and label are from the Stitched Blooms dies and the sentiment is from Best Dressed


On this card I die cut a bunch of leaves from the Stitched Blooms dies and created this background by simply gluing them to the Basic White layer.  Then I die cut a stitched rectangle from each of the 4 colours. Then layered more blooms and the vellum leaves are from Forever Greenery and the sentiment is from Pretty Perennials.


This was actually the first card I made. I stamped the flowers in Coastal Cabana and with my blending brush offed some more Coastal Cabana.  Then I added a half inch strip of each colour. The flowers and sentiment are from Free as a Bird.  I coloured the flowers with Purple Posy and added some Wink of Stella to the flower centres, a couple twine bows and tucked in a couple bits of Polka Dot Tulle ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and they have inspired you to stamp and create.
