New Annual Cataogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Stars blog hop. Today's blog hop features some of the new products that can be found in the Annual Catalogue that is released today.

If you are trying to hop around before then, the links may not work.

There are far too many yummy new stamp sets, products and of course the Colour Refresh (which includes the new 2013-2014 In Colors) to name, but we have been able to get our hands on various items as part of a pre-order sneak peek. Some of these will be featured in the blog hop.

You may have hopped here from Katy-Suzanne or any of the other twenty or so Stampin' Stars, or you may just be starting, either way welcome and have fun. All of these posts will be available for future viewing and I have put a full list of everyone at the bottom of this post.

So, grab yourself a cup of tea, sit back and have fun checking out all the projects and inspiration. Please also feel free to leave comments to let us know that you have stopped by.

Details of where to hop to next are at the end of this post.

If you want to see what I have been up to then read on.

I am away again at the moment but I managed to bring a few goodies with me. In fact, when I opened my suitcase I realised that 2/3rds of it was full of Stampin' Up! goodies. It's just as well that my husband isn't with me.  Mind you my son is, and I managed to sneak a few things into his suitcase too. It took me ages to figure out what I wanted to bring with me because I wanted to be able to post a few projects while I am here. Today's projects are two cards that I wanted to share with you.

The first, was made using the new Mosaic Madness stamp set and the fabulous Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper.

There are eleven stamps in the Mosaic Madness set, but I've only used two for this card.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set : Mosaic Madness and Basic Label single stamp
Card stock : Whisper white and Pool Party
Designer Series Paper : Quatrefancy Specialy
Accessories : Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon, Apothecary Accents Framelit Dies, Paper Snips, Basic Rhinestones and Dimensionals.

The second was made using the Label Love stamp set, the matching Artisan Label Punch, the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set : Label Love
Card stock : Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo
Designer Series Paper : Gingham Garden
Ink : Melon Mambo
Accessories : Artisan Label Punch, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Paper Snips and Dimensionals
