Pinkies Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouettes

We're so glad you could join us on our Blog Hop, We'll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® 2012-2013 Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of each post to keep on hopping. We love comments so please tell us what you think.

If you arrived here from Nicky Dexter's blog, I hope you enjoyed her beautiful work showcasing Fine Feathers.

For this hop I am focusing on the new Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set. I hope to demonstrate how versatile one set can be by showing you three entirely different cards using this one set.

The first card is very simple with a Whisper White mat, stamped with the Tree from this set, then with three mini brads added the mat is stuck to a Basic Black card that has been embossed with the new Framed Tulips Folder. But it would be just as effective without the Embossing.


This second variation is stamped on Vellum Card with Versamark and embossed with Black Stampin' Emboss® Powder, The card stock is Cajun Craze and More Mustard.

The final card in the series uses a different stamp from the set, embossing with the Big Shot, sponging and masking techniques, and a little sparkle from the Basic Jewels. The colour combination is Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant.

I love the new Fancy Fan embossing folder...

If you would like any more information about the products and techniques used in these projects - please do ask - I am happy to help!

Now I will let you continue on your travels through the Pinkies Blog Hop, your next stop is Sarah Makin's blog, who has been creative using a selection of products from the new catalogue.
