Hello! Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Spring Catalog Blog Hop. I'm joining forces with my friends at Stampin' Addicts to show you some of the awesome new products in the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog. We are all joined by links provided in each blog post so that you can travel forward or backwards through the hop. So take some time out from the post-Christmas craziness and journey through all the stops on the hop. If you are already traveling forward through the hop, you have arrived here from Kim Bolzenthal's Stitchin' and Stampin' on Paper blog with her beautiful projects featuring the Collage Curios stamp set (the stationery set is fabulous!). If you are traveling backwards through the hop, then you've arrived from Yapha Mason's blog, Rubber Stamping & Card Making with Yapha where she features the Oh Whale stamp set (I particularly love the baby bib card--too cute!).
My stop features the That's the Ticket stamp set. This is one of those go-to stamp sets for when you need a little something to make a themed project come together.
One of the first things I remember making with paper, scissors, and glue was Valentine's cards. Mom would put out lots of construction paper, scraps of ribbons, her button bowl, tubes of glitter, paper doilies, and other odds and ends that she had stashed away. Let's just say that after 6 kids had finished with their Valentines the dining room was pretty sparkly! This Valentine pocket doesn't have sparkle, but I think it has lots of heart.
There are a couple of other new products from the Spring Catalog included in this project: More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper for the hearts and Primrose Petals Core'Dinations cardstock for the pocket die cut with the Big Shot and the Petite Pockets Bigz XL die.
Sometimes you need make something quickly for a birthday. The diagonal-striped banners from the Heart's a Flutter stamp set, die cut with the Big Shot using the coordinating Heart's a Flutter Framelits, add the bright colors.
There are five event-specific images in the That's the Ticket stamp set. The remaining three images allow you to have some fun. One has lines that you can use for a quick personal message and another is designed to look like an admission ticket. The third is blank at the center; so I used that image with the Fabulous Phrases stamp set to add a sentiment to the card front of this card.
The Heart's a Flutter stamp set and coordinating Heart's a Flutter Framelits provides the scalloped Art Deco-looking banners across the top of the card front.
Note: For all of the projects shown above the ticket image was cut out with Paper Snips and matted with a piece of cardstock punched with the Ticket Duo Builder punch.
I hope that you've found some paper crafting inspiration with these projects. Stop back by next week -- I'll have more information about how each of these projects were made.
Now it's time to see more design inspiration from more of the talented Stampin' Addicts artists.
