Stampin' Addicts - New Catty Blog Hop - Perfect Blend
Welcome to Stampin' Addicts New Catalog blog hop! We are showcasing all new stamp sets from the 2013-2014 catalog. My blog is the second stop on the hop but if you started here it's okay as we are all linked together!! If you started in order than you just came from Stampin' with Paula who made some wonderful projects using Timeless Talk.
There are so many fun new stamps that I had a hard time picking which stamp set to work with but I finally decide to go with Perfect Blend. The coffee cup is just waaay to cute even though I don't drink coffee!
My first project, well actually it was the last one I made, is a cute little gift that you could give to just about anyone!!I just used a square 4x4 piece of cardstock and formed it into a cone to create the pouch. I then decorated it with some of the new chevron ribbon (LOVE!) and a cut out coffee cup that I watercolored to match my color scheme which I took from the colors in the coffee packets. To get the striped band I used the set Six-Sided Sampler.
My next project is a sweet and simple card and it's slightly smaller than your average card measuring 4 1/2x 4 1/2. I stamped the main coffee cup image, I watercolored the lid and cut the band out from a scrap of Natural Composition DSP. Too get the Strawberry Slush polka dots I again used the Six Sided Sampler stamp set.
This next card is slightly more stepped up card, still simple but has more bling to it! Here I stamped the coffee cup and watercolored the lid and band with pool party. I created the strips with you guessed it the Six Sided Sampler set with masking to keep all the strips on the cup. I added some more of the fun chevron ribbon and candy dots (fun embellishment!).
My last card is a bit over the top and sort of has a vintage feel! On the base I made coffee stains using my lid of plastic embellishment cases. I stamped two coffee cups and colored them again with watercoloring and yes the Six Sided Sampler for the bands. I used a bunch of different embellishments; paper clay, candy dots, ruffled ribbon and natural trim. If you look closely at the bow you will see that it is slightly scorched. I did this by running my heat gun over it to give it the worn look.
