Stamp to the MAX Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp to the MAX Blog Hop.  I hope that you are inspired by the new products that we are all showing you.  You probably just came from Max's blog.  I am stop #2 for the hop. 

I am so excited for the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!  I can hardly contain myself.  This blog hop is designed to showcase some of the great new things that you can get in the catalog starting TODAY!

I have a trio of card to show you using the Patio Party DSP.  I love the color combination for this paper.  It uses 3 of the new In Colors which are Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, and Primrose petals, and combines them with one of my all time favorite colors Baja Breeze.  The nuetral tone in this DSP is Whisper White. 

The first card uses one of my favorite sheets with a small butterfly print on it.  Add the popular Beautiful Wings embosslit and you have a winner!  The scallop on the bottom of the DSP is the Scallop Edge Border Punch.

Next up you have a great card with Midnight muse as the base and Summer Starfruit with the Scallop Edge Border Punch again.  The DSP is a sheet with fun banners all across it.  You might notice some new Whisper White stitched ribbon.  It is MUCH easier to tie than the regular grosgrain ribbon that retired from the last catalog.  You will also notice a new stamp set and framelits to go with it.  The sentiment is from a cute new set called Itty Bitty Banners and has a set of framelits to cut them out for you called Bitty Banners of course!

Last, but not least, is a card using the colors of the DSP.  Notice how nicely the In Colors coordinate with Baja Breeze?  Love it!  I used the ric rac portion of the Tasteful Trim Die.  The flower is made by punching 2 Whisper White flowers using the Blossom Punch that carried over from the last mini catalog!  WOO HOO, since that was one of my favorites. Then layered a piece of DSP over a Summer Starfruit circle for the center.  To give it some depth, I sniped each petal of the flowers a couple times and ruffled them. 

There, didn't you just love that introduction to the Patio Party Suite?  Now you are off to hop on over to stop #3 which is Kim.  She always out does all of us, so I am sure you will be delighted.  Thanks for stopping by and remember that all supplies are available via my online store HERE
