Pinkies Blog Hop - 2014 Annual Catalogue

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop. We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

I hope you are enjoying the hop so far, if you are starting here please check out the rest of the Hop!

I have so much gorgeous new product that it was hard to choose what to focus on - I have chosen Hot Diggity Dog as it is what we're using for our August class!

The first card features the Scotty dog, I coloured his jumper with Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, the apertures were cut using the Ovals Framelits and the mat was embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.

I used the Stampamajig to get the head positioned perfectly and then the sentiment was punched out using the Word Window and Modern Label punches.

If our Scottie dog wasn't cute enough here is a super simple card made using the Dachshund... and when you open it up!

That was so much fun to make and took minutes! The last card is one of my Pop Up cards, I did a tutorial for these - this one however has a twist! I used the Poodle this time, the star stamp from Something to Say and the co-ordinating star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack. The decoration on the belly band is punched with 3 different size Circles and one of the Scallop Circle punches.

So here's the surprise - can you see what I've done?

I've reversed the images - come back Monday for the first of two techniques in my Back to Basic series that show you how to stamp mirror images.
