SSINK Blog Hop - 2015 Occasions Catalog

It's a new year and with it comes a brand new Stampin' Up! catalog we get to share with you! Some of the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration gals are blog hopping today and showcasing some of the many amazing products from the 2015 Occasions Catalog.

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 7 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Kim Ryden at Stamping with Kim. 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 first card I have to share with you today was inspired by the sketch at Can You Case It? (CYC #51). I needed a clean and simple design for my card making night on Tuesday...something that could be reproduced easily with a big group of stampers. This sketch was the perfect fit for that!

I used the brand new stamp set called Painted Petals and paired it up with the Painted Blooms DSP. 

Using the Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write Markers, the stamped flowers match beautifully with the flowers in the paper. And that sentiment?! I LOVE the cursive style of the word "amazingly". So fun!

My next card was inspired by this sketch at Retro Sketches.

I wanted to play with the new bundle I purchased from the 2015 Occasions Catalog. You can purchase these two products separately, but when purchased together you can save 15%! The Hello You Thinlits Dies are so fun and the Crazy About You stamp set (available in your choice of wood, clear, or photopolymer) when paired together with the dies can create so many sentiments.

I used the above sketch to create this "hello sunshine" card. The bokeh background is actually part of Sale-A-Bration called Best Year Ever DSP I earned with my $50 purchase. The Coastal Cabana button is also a Sale-A-Bration freebie and comes with two other colors, as well as the coordinating trio of ribbon. So many great choices for Sale-A-Bration!
