RemARKable New Catalog Blog Tour - Post 1

Here We Go!  Another RemARKable Blog Tour!  I enjoy being involved with these tours because it keeps me on my toes, and makes me work a little harder to create fun ideas for you too!

This tour is all about featuring products from the NEW STAMPIN' UP! IDEA BOOK & CATALOG released just last week!  Although I am still waiting for my 2nd shipment of products, and I have already shared a few projects in previous posts....But, I have a few more ideas for you!

This card is the featured Make & Take at all of my
July Stampin' Up! Workshops.  

It uses Marina Mist, Pear Pizazz, & Cajun Craze card stock.  The Pear Pizazz cs is also embossed with the new Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The ribbon is new too!  Also in Marina Mist it's the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon!  1/8" Inch!!  It's so thin and I LOVE IT!    The Stamp Set is Artistic Etchings and it's stamped in the New Cajun Craze Ink.  Punches include the Modern Label Punch and the NEW 2 3/8" Scallop Circle!  WOW!  Love it.  The brads are from the Metallic brads package (Pewter).  I hope I see you this month so you'll have the chance to make a sample of this project yourself!

This is my attempt to recreate, slightly differently, a card created by another demonstrator.  (I will post her sample later, or email me and I will send it to you)
I loved how she had layered this Hydrangea from the
Because I Care Hostess Level 2 stamp set.

Here's the side view so you can see the layers created with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I used Concord Crush & Pear Pizazz card stock and Watercolor paper.  The ribbon is actually Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.  Because my shipment isn't due to arrive until Friday, I improvised by coloring the ribbon with my Stampin' Write Concord Crush Marker.  I used Stazon Ink to stamp the image 3 times on the Watercolor paper.  Using a the marker I created a palette on a clear block and squiggled the color which I then picked up with a blender pen to color in the flower.  The centers are colored white using the White uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.

Tomorrow I will share several very simple cards I created to show the versatility of our Designer Series Papers, using the New Green House Gala pack.  (You know I am loving it....I've already shared some samples using that paper...Obsession is nine/tenths of Crafting!  LOL)

Enjoy the rest of the tour...remember to come back tomorrow!
