Jems Monthly Blog Hop June 2016

Hello again and thank you for joining me and the Jems on their monthly blog hop.... here we go!

NEW CATALOGUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NEW IN COLORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOADS OF NEW STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a little excited if you can't tell :)

So the Jems are sharing with you lots of new and fun projects that can be made with the New Stampin' Up! 2016-2018 in colors and a few new products I am sure will also be used.

Every year Stampin' Up! retires 5 colours and welcomes 5 new colours which are always available for 2 years.  This year welcomes these stunning new colours... don't they just make ya smile!

So I made my cards to show off the new colors but YEP I had to show ya a few lovely new products too.... are ya ready?

These are what I used...... SWIRLY BIRD STAMP SET, THOUGHTFUL BANNERS STAMP SET and PUNCH AND PERFECTLY WRAPPED STAMP SET... yep you do want them all :) You can find them all now in my shop!

Wanna see the cards?

Flirty Flamingo first.....


Then Sweet SugarPlum and Peek-a-boo Peach

and finally Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim
The Swirly Bird stamp set has SO many elements to let you make flowers, and kites, and birds in nests, and sail boats..... and I am sure another few hundreds things that we have not yet seen but our amazing crafty friends will come up with. 

The flowers have been stamped off for the background and the true color used for the swirls and the same with the kites (top one true color, other 2 stamped off once).  By doing this you can see that even with just one ink pad you can get a variety of colours... you could even go another shade lighter that that! 

Some of the sequins were what I had left over when I made up my Watercolor Wishes set, and then others are just non Stampin' Up! ones that I have collected over the years. 

So which one is your favourite?  Mine has to be Flirty Flamingo.... even the name is wonderful! 

Here are another few little cards and bookmarks that I made to send out with my catalogues - which by the way if you would like one, please drop me a message with your details and I will get one in the post to you.

Okay I better let you get on with the blog hop.... thank you for dropping by to see me, and hopefully you will get lots of lovely ideas on your way around the Jems :)
