INK & INSPIRATION - NEW CATTY SNEAK PEEK


Hello and welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The complete list at the bottom will guide you through all the inspirational projects created by the team.
 
The theme this month is a sneak peek from the 2019 Occasions and the Sale-A-Bration Catalogues.
 

For today's card I've used the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. These two gorgeous Stampin' Up!® products are going to be so well loved by me - so look out for lots of butterfly creations!
 
I've used two of the new Designer Series Papers too! The black and white spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly collection (available FREE with any purchase of NZ$110 from 3 January) and the striped paper is from the Happiness Blooms collection available from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

 
The butterflies have been stamped in Calypso Coral to co-ordinate with the Happiness Blooms DSP and I've added leaves from the Incredible Like You Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist. The Whisper White strip of cardstock has been embossed with the Subtle Folder.
 
"A little note" is stamped in black and is from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set - isn't the font lovely?
 
A few rhinestones to tie in the Silver Glimmer Paper and the Silver Metallic Thread complete my card.
 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop. You won't want to miss all the fabulous projects the team has to share!

INK IT! STAMP IT! BLOG HOP - SNEAK PEEK!


Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. This month we are sharing Sneak Peek projects from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogues. You may have arrived here from seeing the lovely and talented Jenny Hall's project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

 
Oh how I love these butterflies from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and the co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  You stamp two images at once, one large and one small and the punch cuts them out together - very clever! I now have a little stash of butterflies for my next project!
 

The spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper in the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue - FREE with any purchase of NZ$110 from 3 January! There are coloured images on one side (mostly butterflies) and black and white designs on the other - I love black and white, timeless and elegant!

The white background has been embossed using the Subtle folder - I stamped the sentiment first!

I also added a few co-ordinating silver elements - thread, glimmer paper and rhinestones - along with some sequins from the Gingham Gala Sequin collection.
 
These two catalogues are full of gorgeous Stampin' Up! product. Please contact me if you'd like to purchase anything or click the link above to my Online Store.
 
Have a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you again soon. The holidays are here so I'm looking forward to some uninterrupted crafting time!

Here's a list of the 2019 team - it's a photograph of the screen at OnStage announcing the team. I had to keep it a secret for a while so I was pleased when it was announced!

 
I received a beautifully decorated white lacquered box with a personalised Artisan Design Team stamp and a gorgeous Tiffany's bracelet inside!
 
A big thank you to the 2018 Artisan Design Team, you have been amazing!
