We are again offering Blog Candy for our blog hop. What you need to do is complete the blog hop until you get back to me. Once you have visited and commented on every blog then you will need to email Sharlene at stampwithsharlene@hotmail.com who will then put your name into the draw for the blog candy. There will be one winner from New Zealand and one winner from Australia, so start hopping!

So let's get going!! You should have just arrived from Danielle Daws' Blog ( http://www.danielledaws.blogspot.com/2010/04/910-autumn-winter-mini-catalogue-blog.html ) and now you're here!!

For my first project I've used the New Cottage Garden Stamp Set and the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. I just love the new In Colours as well, I have used the Rich Razzleberry in this card along with our regular colours, Old Olive and Orchid Opulence - a perfect match for the DSP. I've also used the new 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon - where are the polka dots, you ask? The ribbon is plain on the back, so you can use it with or without the polka dots! I finished the flower and the butterfly off with a bit of dazzling diamonds.



The next lot of cards use all three of the new In Colours - Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede - they go so well together. I've made 3 little cards for each packet here (1 of each design in each pack). I've used the Big Shot Top Note Die to create the little bag topper and then embellished them with the In Colour Ribbons and made a bit of a pleat/ruffle, just for something different!

I have used the new Vintage Vogue Stamp set to create these cards, along with the new In Colour inks and Ribbons.






My last little project is this puffy box (tutorial on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ ). They are so simple to make and they look great and are the perfect size for a few choccies or some jewellery, etc. I've made this one using soft suede and I stamped the flowers from Vintage Vogue to create a background. Then I made up the box and wrapped a piece of Melon Mambo Ribbon around it (which you can't see coz the bird is on top of it!!). Then I layered 2 ovals (the top one is cut from the wide oval punch and the bottom one is the smallest oval cut from the Big Shot Ovals Dies). I punched out the bird using the NEW Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch (What a mouthful!!) using Pink Pirouhette Cardstock and sponged with Melon Mambo and then layered it up. It was so quick to put together!



I am absolutely loving these new products! For all the stamps I've used for these projects, I used the NEW Clear Mount Rubber Stamps. These have been fantastic! Love how they work and how they store and Love the Price!


Well enough from me, there's plenty more to see and don't forget to email Sharlene when you have visited and commented on all the blogs and get back to me! Off you go now to see what Felicity has created - http://www.stampinwithflick.blogspot.com/2010/04/autumnwinter-mini-catalogue-esad-blog.html
