Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - new catalog inspiration

Today we are so excited to share with you some NEW CATALOG INSPIRATION as we hop along with the Stylin' Stampin' Squad. Now it is a little bittersweet today as this is our last hop together as a "squad". Some blog hop designers we are saying goodbye to, but there are others who are planning to join us on our design team blog at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration where we will continue to hop monthly as a group with our new design team! Yippee!!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number #9 - Rose of Stampin' with Rose. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

The new catalog has been out for almost 1-1/2 weeks now, so I am sure many of you have already had time to look through it (maybe more than once...or even more than twice!) We thought it would be fun for us to highlight some of the new products so that you can decide what you want to put on your wish list! Today I am using the Sea Street stamp set and Maritime Designer Series Paper to show you a simple card and gift card holder. This set is great for kid birthdays ~ especially in the summer! And the DSP coordinates perfectly with the fun images!

Clear Mount - #133988 / $16.95
Wood Mount - #133985 / $22.95

#133696 / $10.95

 This card is super simple, but is perfect for a little "hello" or "happy birthday"! I just love how the background DSP makes a fun statement behind the layers of circles with the octopus.
Stamp Sets
Sea Street
Night of Navy
Real Red, Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Maritime DSP
SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Circle Framelits

This next project is a fun one! It uses so many pieces of the Maritime DSP! I used the tutorial for this gift card holder from Heather Van Looy at Handcrafting with Heather.

Here is the gift card holder when it's wrapped up in its belly band. 

Slip off the belly band and open up the first flap. I added some of the fun paper to both of the inside flaps.

 Then open it up one more time and it reveals a place for you to write a little message and a spot to put the gift card on the right. (Bet you'll never guess where that gift card is to!)

I will be using this gift card holder design A LOT this summer as we have many birthdays lined up. In fact, this particular one here will be used for a birthday on Friday. My son will be bringing it to his friend's birthday party with a $10 gift card in it...and attached to a water soaker! :) you so much for taking the time to hop through and check out our projects. I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment or send me an email to stuckonstampin{at}gmail{dot}com if you have any questions or comments!

I love what you did with the gift card holder! I'm glad you enjoyed the design! On another note, how do you get the pin it button to show up in the corner of your photos? That is great! (Heather Van Looy of Handcrafting with Heather).
