June New Catalog Blog Hop

 Hello and welcome to our June New Catalog Blog Hop. If you have joined me from Rose's Blog welcome and thank for hopping along. If you are just starting the hop then be sure and make your way through all the Blogs as I am sure they are filled with great new ideas. I am excited to share two new cards with you that use a fun new set and a coordinating punch. The first card is fairly basic and one that I am doing this week at my workshops and club. It uses Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate, Pool Party, So Saffron and Crushed Curry. Each of the images from the Six Sided Sampler Stamp Set are stamped on Whisper White and then punched out with the Hexagon Punch. On the Thanks much hexagon I added just a bit of 1/8" Bermuda Bay Taffeta Ribbon and a new Candy Dot also in Bermuda Bay. I think the Candy Dots may be my favorite new accesory. It might be hard to see but I added just a bit of texture  to the Smoky Slate Background with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder. I used chipboard circles that I made with the 3 1/2" and 3"  Circle Originals Dies to just emboss the two corners.

For the inside of the card I stamped the same images on the front onto a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. Now to show you my second card. I had the idea for this card as I was working on the first card. It is a bit more complex but I really like the way it turned out and it really isn't to hard with the help of the Hexagon Punch.
My second card is a quilt inspired card. I used the Pool Party and Bermuda Bay but this time a paired them with Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar and Soft Suede. I stamped and punched the images then used a piece of Whisper White to lay out my design. After I had the design I used SNAIL to adhere it and ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I added Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon to the new Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim and then added the sentiment popped up with Dimensionals over the ribbon. I can't wait to try this set out some more and feel like it will be a favorite of mine for a while and hope it becomes a favorite of yours also.
It is time for me to send you on to the next blog which is Dawn's. If you get the chance please leave us a comment as we would love to here from you. Thanks again for stopping by, Tonya
