Inky Friends New Catalog Hop!


Welcome to the Inky Friends New Catalog Blog Hop! I'm hopping with a new group today, but the friends aren't new; they've been my stamping sistahs for quite a while now! You may have landed here from Sarah's Ink Spot, or you might be starting here with me. Either way, there are ten of us, so if you click the "Next" button at the bottom of each blog, you'll take the whole tour. Each of us are featuring a different stamp set, bundle, or suite in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, so there's sure to be something that inspires you!

I chose the Oh So Eclectic bundle for my two cards, and wanted to focus on the die cuts on one card, and the stamps on the other. So up first are the die cuts, with the Naturally Eclectic DSP as a background:


I think the Copper Foil looks so elegant against the black, don't you? If you look closely, you'll see some copper sequins, too! They are in the Metallics Sequin Assortment, in three sizes.

STAMPS: Vertical Greetings INK: Basic Black Archival CARDSTOCK: Basic Black, Naturally Eclectic DSP, Copper Foil Sheets ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies

Stamping was the focus of the second card. I chose Berry Bliss, stamped off once for the flower shading and, when paired with black, it's really striking! It was so easy to add a little background interest with the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape. The new Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon is an absolute dream for making shabby chic bows!

That's all I have to show, so click the Next button to see what Betty has to show you over at Kitty Stamp. Or, if you want to travel backwards (you rebel, you!), click the Previous button to see Sarah's projects. Thanks for stopping by!
