AWH Blog Hop 2019-2020 New Catalogue

Tonight members of the Art With Heart Team are sharing creative projects using products from the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you would like a copy of the catalogue, get in touch with anyone participating in the blog hop and we will get one to you. I am in South Morang Victoria, and also spend a lot of time at Phillip Island, Vic.

I loved the stamp set 'It Starts With Art' the minute I saw it, so I was pretty happy to come home from Auckland Onstage with it in my hot little hands. Then there was the sad story of how I couldn't find it, no matter how much I tidied and put things away!!! I was longing to stamp, but no "It Starts With Art' anywhere. I had to get my husband to help out, so I showed him the style of stamp cover he's searching for, and opened the catalogue so he can refer to it.

Like a bloodhound, he was off. Faithfully following the scent, until he walked out of the craft room and put it in my hands. You'll never guess where he found it!!! I'd put it straight on the shelf in its alphabetical spot, not that I remembered doing that. DOH! Crafting Forever, which has been in the catalogue for a year or two, co-ordinates beautifully with the new addition. I believe it adds more value to both stamp sets when they have a 'companion' to pair up with. I'm a little bit keen on heat embossing sentiments onto black card at the moment, and have done that for this card also.

While I was waiting for my dies to arrive, I stamped this card front and spent a little time colouring the images and background with Stampin' Blends. I'm sure I could have left the background plain as well, but once it was started......well, I'm sure you understand.

Next you're heading to the very talented Kimberly and her wonderful project

Scrumptious Flowers CI#56

 Colour INKspiration is a fortnightly blog initiated by Bronwyn Eastley in Tasmania. The design team is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, share Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and create cards and the occasional 3D project.
What a rich combination of colours this week, and flowers seemed like the go-to for my project.

Bloom & Grow is a stand-out stamp set for me in the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue, good to go on June 4th, but luckily demonstrators get their hands on a few sets earlier so we can make samples. I've made quite a few samples with Bloom & Grow already. There are three different groupings of flowers, and a nice selection of sentiments. Another bonus is matching dies to cut those flowers out, and if you use the special bundle code, you get 10% off the price.

If you haven't received your catalogue yet, get in touch with your demonstrator, or if you are near to South Morang, VIC, I could help you out with one.
Next design team member on this hop is the talented Nikki Spencer
