AWH Blog Hop: New Annual Catalogue


Today I bring you another AWHT blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today our focus is on our New Annual Catalogue!

I would also like to highlight the joining special for the month of June. Our group is one
of the largest teams in Melbourne and offer support, fun and friendship to anyone who would like to join us; from Hobby demonstrators to Business demonstrators to anyone in between. And for the month of June, there is a bonus special, you get to choose any two stamp sets of your choice for free along with your starter kit ($169). What are you waiting for, contact me today to find out more.

My card for this Blog Hop uses three new items: one of the new In Colours, Mint Macaron, a new stamp set called Endless Birthday Wishes, and the new Essentials Piercing Template.  I think Mint Macaron is about to become my favourite green - it's a really pretty, dusky green.

On a side note: do you pronounce it macaron or macaroon? I use the former, but everyone seems to have differing opinions!

I also used some old favourites - the confetti stamp from Dotty Angles and some Dazzling Details.  I used the Dazzling Details to highlight the icing trim on the cake and also some random dots in the confetti background.  It adds a lovely feature to the card without introducing a third colour.

Endless Birthday Wishes is a photopolymer stamp set, which means it's totally clear.  They cling brilliantly to the clear blocks, and lining up your images is a breeze!  There are a ton of words and phrases in both the printed and handwritten fonts that you can mix and match to make a custom sentiment.  Too easy!

Now you're off to see the work of the fabulous Judy May.
