Today some of the the Inspiring Inkin’ team are blog hopping……..if you have landed here from Elizabeth’s blog welcome, do have a look around.

If this is your first stop and you have never taken part in a blog hop, this is what you do, when you have finished reading and looking around on my website, click the blog hop button which you will find at the bottom of the post and you will be taken to Elaine’s blog, and she has some amazing projects for you.  Keep reading and clicking until you end up here again, 9 stops in all!

So today I have not 1, not 2 but 3 cards for you !  2 showcasing products from the fantastic Autumn/Winter Seasonal catalogue and one from the new annual catalogue that launches on Monday, wow can you believe it Monday is the 1st October 2012 !

First up is a Christmas card, Cherry Cobbler base and the stamp sets are Greetings of the Season and Watercolour Winter.  I have cut the Holly out using the Framelits that will be back from the last summer mini into the new annual catalogue and the paper piercing around the edge is done using a new paper piercing pack called Festive.  I’m sure you have noticed the distressed card at the bottom, we now have Core’dinations card, I have used Early Espresso, embossed it with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and then sanded it.  I love the vintage style it gives.

This next card is also Christmas, and uses the Scentsational Season stamp set and matching framelits.  The base card has been embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and the the gingerbread man, tree, star and candy cane were all stamped and cut out using the framelits.  A scallop oval of Champagne Glimmer paper sets off the sentiment from Petite pairs.  Such a speedy card to do, great to duplicate for Christmas.

And finally a card using my new favourite set……I know I shouldn’t have favourites and believe me there are so many new stamp sets in the annual catalogue it is difficult to choose, but right now this is my favourite.  It’s called Papaya Collage and I have only used one of the stamps on this card !  You will have to come back over the next few days to see more cards using all of the other stamps in the set!

The card is focusing on 2 new in-colours Summer Star Fruit and Gumball Green, the in-colours have matching satin stitched ribbon which you can see, we received that on the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Vienna, I have a reel of each of the 5 colours, it is scrummy!

Well that is all for me today, Have a wonderful time on the blog hop, and I hope to see you soon. Click on the picture below to go to Elaine’s blog.
