Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peeks for a Pinkies Blog Hop


Stampin' Up! UK Pinkies Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

I honestly can’t believe it’s nearly time for another new Annual Catalogue, with all the excitement of new In Colours and LOADS of new products. In fact, contained within the 212 pages, there are:

  • 175 new tools & accessories
  • 377 new products overall
  • 450 project samples

Isn’t that amazing?

While we only get a limited selection of products available to us to preorder before the catalogue launches, I found it quite hard to decide what to use…. but then an idea to do some inlaid die cutting with the Swirly Scribbles framelits and the new In Colours came to me (not quite in a dream… but it was close!). This is what I came up with as my sneak peek from the new catalogue:

swirly scribbles

I’ve used Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum – I think these two colours coordinate very well, don’t you? And I HAVE to love Dapper Denim as it won me a prize patrol at On Stage recently.

If you look closely, you can see how I’ve used the framelits to cut out the shapes from the Sweet Sugarplum layer and some Whisper White cardstock. The white pieces then slot in to the negative left behind. And yes, it was rather like a jigsaw puzzle fitting the Sweet Sugarplum “bits” back in to the spaces. It was made rather harder by the door bell ringing and making me jump… scattering the carefully laid out pieces ALL over the table! Also, cling film doesn’t work quite as well as US glad wrap for keeping die cut pieces in place. I might have to source some of that if I’m going to attempt something similar again!

Thank you for visiting today, and please do hop on through our blog hop as there are lots of lovely projects we want to share with you.
