New Product Blog Hop

 Welcome to the New Product Blog Hop for the July/August catalog! 

There are so many terrific new products - you will see a variety of them along this hop. You should have arrived here from Gina Brandstetter's blog. If you get lost along the way, a list of all participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

I made two cards using completely different products. The first uses a stamp set that I think is fabulous! I stamped the woman in Intense Black and coloured her using the same colours as the Isabella papers. The sentiment was stamped in Bluebird ink. I followed a pattern from Make It From Your Heart Vol. 1 and added a mat to each piece. A few flowers with coloured Bitty Sparkles inside were added around the card and I drew a border around the two largest pieces. 

The second card uses a new stamp set called Happy Birthday Song plus the waterfall thin cut. The images were all stamped in either Sage or Peacock ink after some detailed masking, and some were coloured. I kept to a minimalist colour theme, using only three colours. A few balloons and hearts were added along the side of the waterfall and I also added some Peacock dots. 

I hope you enjoyed my cards!

  6. Both cards are super fun! I love that you featured pink on the first card as it's hard to see in the pattern paper.

  7. How fun is your hot flashes card! I also really like your waterfall card too.
