It’s time for another blog hop, and this time I’m hopping with my team of sister Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, the Artful Stampers.

We are focusing on the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, so hop along with us and see what everyone has come up with.

My project is a combination of new and “old” products, as in some have carried over from previous catalogues.

I first created the background by stamping the Tree Rings background stamp with Versamark onto Watercolour Paper, then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I sprinkled some Brusho Crystal Colour powders on the embossed panel then spritzed it with water to activate the crystals and give a watercolour effect. I used Brilliant Red, Gamboge (Orange) and Yellow.

Once that was dry I cut the panel down and matted it onto black cardstock and then layered it onto my card front of Poppy Parade, a returning colour for this catalogue.

I changed my mind a couple of times with the trees – first I die cut them out of black cardstock, then I thought they were too heavy so I decided to stamp them in Whisper White craft ink. That didn’t give me the effect I wanted, so I decided to try Copper embossing powder over the top of the Whisper White ink. This has given a mottled effect, which I like.

The greeting is stamped with the Whisper White craft ink and then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount the greeting onto the card front.

Here is the list of everyone joining in with the hop today:
