Creative Inking Blog Hop: New Catalog Pretties

Welcome to the June Creative Inking Blog Hop!

This month we are showing off all sorts of goodies from the New Catalog! Have you seen this gem yet? If not, make sure you are ready to drool while you page through it. It is gorgeous!!!

One of the first stamps sets I NEEDED to have was Swirly Bird, and the matching framelits of course :) This set has so many possibilities- and I loved the swirls so much- reminded me of the Paper Pumpkin die-cuts that we had a few months back. So very pretty! And to make it even sweeter, you can get the two together as a bundle and save 10%. **happy dance**

Lucky for me, this bundle was on the preorder for demos, so I've had extra time to play with it, and I planned my class around it this month. Check out the fun variety of cards we made:

If you look closely, you'll also noticed that all the colors here are unfamiliar. That is because these cards all use the new In Colors. Aren't they yummy :) My favorite is Peek-a-boo Peach... but I'm extremely partial to anything resembling orange, so it isn't really much of a contest ;)

For today's hop, check out the details of the first kite card.

I'm loving the vellum 'wind' lines in the background. And it was so much fun to watercolor the one cloud.  Fun story- the first time I saw the stamp set I absolutely could not figure out what 'those triangles' were for. I couldn't in my head see that they were to be combined to form the kit. When someone told me it was a complete "DUH!" moment for me.

Here it is from a little bit different of an angle. You can see my vellum is really just kind of floating on it's layer on the card. I only attached it down in a couple spots where the glue would hide behind the kite and clouds. Makes it nice and wispy! The real ribbon ties also add an element of dimension to the card (although there is a stamped tie as well- which could be used for the kit or the bird... but it is SMALL so be very careful not to loose it!!).

Hope you enjoyed this card. Flutterby again soon to see details from more of the designs ;)

Now off you hop to see what Kristine has prepared for us today.

And just in case you are still into digital crafting after the end of MDS, check out my prior blog post for a digital freebie!
