Pals January Blog Hop

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Thank you for joining us for the first Pals Blog Hop of 2013! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to introduce you to new Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Spring Catalog. We hope you find inspiration and ideas for using the new stamps, papers and accessories.

You should have just left stop number 2 on the Pals Hop - Sherrie Gross at Stampin Sunshine. If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

If you haven't seen the new Spring catalog, I must warn you... It is FABULOUS! You will want every single item in it! This adorable whale is from the Oh, Whale set, my absolute favorite! The embossed clouds are from the new Cloudy days Embossing Folder.

How could you not love this adorable little thing!? Not only the stamp set is cute, but they have the coordinating clearlits die! I gave my girl whale a little flower:-) And she is so happy, she is blowing little hearts out!

This is one of the sentiments in the set, too cute! The anchor is one of the shapes from the clearlits die. I used the Linen Thread to add some nautical flavor.

The waves were made with the Large Scallop Edgelits. I ran a strip of the Basic gray card stock twice through the Big Shot Machine, then adhered the bottom and the middle pieces with a little space in between them.

My Notes...

Stamp set: Oh, Whale
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Midnight Muse, Primerose Petals, Summer Starfruit
