Stampin' Up! New Catalogue Blog Hop

Good morning, I hope this post appears as I'm not fabulous at scheduling them! Today sees the launch of the new Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue. To view the catalogue, click on the image below or you can email me at bluejellystampin@sky.com to request one in the post.



So hopefully if you're following the op in order, you have just visited Cary's blog. If not you can visit by clicking this image:
  

There is a beautiful stamp in the new catalogue called Swallowtail, it's an individual stamp and is ma-hoosive. I've made oodles of projects with it and have chosen three to share with you today. Here is the first:

Stampin_Up

It's a frame I got on the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Vienna last year - I love it. To create the picture, I made myself an ink pad using baby wipes and re-inkers. Here is the matching card:

I've used the same ink pad and stamped the butterfly going around the back of the card. The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration set Vintage Verses. You  can earn this set amongst others absolutely FREE during Sale-A-Bration when you spend £45 on Stampin' Up! products with me.

My last project today is a 12x12 scrap layout of one of my favourite photos of Blake when he was a baby:

Stampin_Up

It's a very simple one, Very Vanilla 12x12 card with Swallowtail stamped at an angle. Again the sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration set Vintage Verses. The beautiful Striped Organdy ribbons are also from the new catalogue and are Melon Mambo, Marina Mist and Old Olive.

I will share a very vintage style project made with Swallowtail tomorrow - here's a little look for now:
