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.
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

Hello, I can't believe that it is Thursday all ready. The week is flying by but I guess that is what happens when you are busy with fun activities. Yesterday I showed you a card that used the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper and the Label Love Stamp Set and told you I had a second card to share with you that used the same supplies. Well, this is the card. I often cut extras when I am having an event and I like to revamp the card with the leftover supplies. So lets start with the base of the card, it is Pool Party and I added just a bit of texture with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder. I have a trick to just add it on the side that I will share with you later. Then I used the Crumb Cake and the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper to cut out the dress and the dress form from the Dress Up Framelits Set. I attached the dress to the form and then added Daffodil Delight Seam Binding around the waist and then a flower. If you have a new catalog you might have noticed the Simply Pressed Clay and Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds on page 167. The flower on the dress is made with the mold and clay. They are super easy to make and you can do any color that you want. I made this flower with just plain white clay then after it has dried I used the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker to color it and because I wanted just a bit more bling I used Two Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds to make is sparkle. I attached the flower with our Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Now you might be surprised to find out that the Gumball Green Polka Dot Designer Paper is actually the same piece of Designer Paper that I cut the Chevron Dress out off. Because our Designer Paper is double sided I decided to just flip the leftover piece over and simple add the dress and frame back in the hole made when I cut the dress out. I did use dimensionals to pop up the dress but really you have to really look to tell that there is an empty space behind it. One great way to save paper. The sentiment was stamped with Gumball Green just like yesterday and punched out with the Artisan Label Punch and now I have yet another card ready to send. So do you prefer today or yesterday's card? I like them both since the styles are quite different. Please let me know if you would like to make a card similar to this one and we can set up a private class. I have new goodies coming tomorrow so hopefully I will get to stamp over the weekend and have a lot of new things to share. I will have another project for you tomorrow so please stop by again. Thanks, Tonya

Hello and welcome back to a busy week for cards and posts. I cased this card layout for my hostess night last week but can't remember what site I saw it on. If you recognize it please let me know and I will add the site link. This card uses the new Label Love Stamp Set and the new Artisan Label Punch. the colors are Pool Party, Gumball Green, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake. The Designer Paper is the new Epic Day This and That Paper. You will notice that there is something new to Stampin'Up! behind the sentiment. We now have Washi Tape and I used two different styles from the Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape Collection. This is my first time using the Washi Tape and I really liked that it was repositionable for those of us that don't always get it straight the first time. It is also slightly see thru so the Designer Series Paper pattern shows through just a bit. Before you ask if there is a second Artisan Label Punch that is bigger than the first there is not. I made the layer behind the sentiment but punching out two Artisan Label Punches in the Gumball Green then cut them to layer behind. I will work on getting a tutorial.
Tomorrow I have a similar card to share with you that uses the same supplies but has a completely different look. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy your day! Tonya
