Jems June Blog Hop - I am SO happy to see you

Morning people

Wow it is that time again, another Jem's blog hop.  If you have joined me from Sarah's blog, welcome and if not make sure you hop back and check out what she has to offer too!

This time our theme was 'I am so happy this is in the new catalogue', so focusing on either new items or ones that we are so pleased that they have carried over, or in my case - BOTH!  

I personally think this year we have a really good balance of old and new, and I certainly have a number of stamp sets that I have hardly used and really happy that they are still with us.

I choose Lift me up stamp set and thinlets for my cards and I used the lovely Berry Blast in color and selection of DSP's!!

I used the Color Theory DSP, the Fresh Florals DSP, along with Berry Burst and Basic Grey cardstock and Ink.  You can also see I used the stitched circles as a layer. 

For my second card I only used the Lift me up Stamp Set to show you what you can do just with the stamps, paper and ink :) 

 I did use a couple of those amazing Glitter Enamel Dots!
