New catalogue and blog hop

The new Spring/Summer catalogue is released today and can be found here.  To celebrate, some of the Stampin' Stars demonstrators have decided to take part in a blog hop and to share with you some of the new products.

So, welcome to the Stampin' Stars Blog Hop and an extra special welcome to those of you have hopped here from Lesley's blog.

Details of the next blog to hop to can be found at the bottom of this post, along with a complete list of those taking part, just in case you get lost ;).  

For my project I decided to create a card and co-ordinating gift card holder, using the cute Henry Says stamp set.

The card is to celebrate the arrival of a baby girl... but the gift card holder could be used for any occasion...;)

The card base is Pink Pirouette and I have added a piece of DSP from the Subtles Collection paper pack to the base, before adhering a length of the Crochet Trim (see page 173 of main catalogue) and then a length of Pretty in Pink Stitched Grosgrain ribbon.

The 'elephant' image has been inked in Basic Grey and stamped onto another DSP from the Subtles Collection paper pack and then cut out and mounted with Dimensionals.

You will see I have then added the sentiment inked in Rose Red, and also selected the word 'BABY' from the 'B' stamp from the Alphabet Occasions stamp set, to go above this.  To embellish I've punched out some heart shapes using the Owl Punch and added a Designer Button.

The gift card holder has been created from an A6 envelope, and decorated with the same materials as the card.  I've added a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, punched out with the Word Window punch to finish it off.

If you would like detailed instructions for this gift card holder do check back tomorrow when I will have another example for you using alternative products and a full step by step tutorial.

If you would like to order any items from the new Spring/Summer catalogue or the main catalogue please contact me at
