Pinkies Blog Hop

We're so glad you could join us on our blog hop. We'll be showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® 2012-2013 Catalogue.
Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep on hopping. We love comments, so please do tell us what you think!

If you have just arrived from the lovely Nicole Foinette's blog "Welcome" I hope you enjoyed her cards, what inspirational use of the new Word Play stamp set.

Even though this is the second Pinkies Blog Hop, this is my first time blog hopping so I hope you like my creations.

After seeing several cards of this design out there in blog land, I thought I might give it a go.  

The stamp set I have chosen to use is called Creative Elements (£29.95 wood or £23.95 clear) and Curly Cute (£17.95 wood or £13.95 clear).  All the cards have been made using Whisper White Card stock.
Colours used on the above card:
Whisper White Card Stock.  Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Inks. 
Colours used on the above card:
Whisper White Card Stock.  Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive and Pool Party Inks. 
Colours used on the above card:
Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Old Olive and Melon Mambo Inks.

I also added an insert inside and decorated it.  Yes I even decorated the envelope ( I know I'm sad, but just imagine the receivers' face when that envelope drops through their letter box).

And I liked the design so much I will be making a some Christmas card ones in the next few weeks.

If you would like any more information on what I have used please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Please hop onto the lovely Michelle Last's blog to see what she has created with the beautiful Summer Silhouettes set.




  1. Gorgeous cards Sandie - I love all the colour combos, although I think the 2nd one is my favourite! Nx

  2. Fab triptic Sandie - and the inside is just as beautiful too! Love all the colourways too, but my fave is the one with pool party. Gill xxx

  3. All these are gorgeous - how nice to decorate the inside and the envelope too - Jacqueline xx

  4. These cards are lovely Sandie. And I really love the colour combos you have used. This is such a great technique. Might have a go next time I get 5 minutes to craft (a very rare treat these days). Hope you are well. S xx

  5. Lovely cards Sandie, such a simple but stunning idea xxx
