July Pals Blog Hop! Featuring New IB & C Products

Welcome to the July Pals Hop! You probably hopped over from Mary Fish's Blog, Stampin' Pretty. I've joined with some of the Pretty Pals to bring you some projects made with NEW products from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.

The above 5 x 5" square card and mini square gift card are both made using the *new* Fancy Fan Letterpress Plate. I inked it with Whisper White Craft Ink and ran it through my Big Shot with a sheet of Island Indigo card stock, one of this year's In Colors. I LOVE this color! It reminds me of the ocean. I decided to use three other colors for my butterfly and flower: Daffodil Delight and two (more) new In Colors, Pool Party and Calypso Coral.

The butterfly and flower were made using the Floral Fusion Die (115969 $5.50) and my Big Shot. Super simple! Stack them and add embellishments and you have cute elements to add to any card or project.

On the 5 x 5" square card, I used one of the *new* Designer Frames textured embossing folders. They come in a set of two (123130 oval, above and a rectangular shape $8.95). Inside I placed a large oval punched image from the *new* Happiest Birthday Wishes hostess set (122617 Clear $15 hostess or 122615 Wood $21 hostess). This set is huge and will fulfill all of your birthday sentiment wishes! It really has something for everyone. Check it out on the Idea Book & Catalog page 10. With Stampin' Up's new hostess program, it is easier than ever to earn the free products YOU want, whether they be in the hostess-only section or in the rest of the catalog.

Do you spy one of the *new* Designer Printed Brads that makes up the center of my flower? They come in the 2011-2013 In Colors and they are delicious!! (122940 40ct. $7.95--they will go a long way!)

I hope you enjoyed seeing some new Stampin' Up! producst from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. Please leave your comments below. I love to read them all and thank you for all of the kind comments I've received so far!

Patti, Wow -These cards are just too cute. If someone wasn't convinced that paper crafting was fun -they need to see these projects.--Your letterpress turned out beautifully. The butterfly is just the cutest! You should turn these cards into an online class ( I know on all your spare time, right? :-) )
