BLOG HOP Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue...New Products!

Welcome to The Craft Spa for those of you that have hopped across from Keren's blog and for those of you starting here..... just a few words to explain!!

A group of 15 extremely talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators have got ourselves organised ( via the forum In Love with Stamping) in the form of a blog hop to show you some projects using products from the new Stampin' Up! mini catalogue. These products are available from 1st April.

Firstly I have a little birdcage to show you..... I have used the NEW Solid Stripe background stamp ( Page 23; item code 115707) to stamp the bars... and the fabulous NEW punch - the Extra Large Two Step Bird ( Page 6; item code 117191) to punch the bird and the wings ( there is also a lovely leaf/branch as part of this punch as well....mmm!) I have then stamped the bird and wing using the NEW Fine Flourish background stamp ( page 23; item code 115709) to just give a bit more fine detail.... The cage door is made using the Tag punch and the hook using the 1/2" circle punch and then the Scalloped Oval punched around ( all of these are on pages 88-89 in the main catty) This is all produced using one of the 3x3 Love Note Cards... so cute!!

And now a couple of treats for Easter....

A wrapped large Aero Bubble bar where I have used the leaf from the Bird Punch and the fantastic Jewellery Tag punch. The papers are from the 48 page Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack ( page 13; item code 117161) These papers are all wonderful... I think you will be seeing a lot of these......


And lastly a super box using Lauren Meaders In A Pinch Template with the new Vintage Vogue stamp set ( Page 14; item code 117690)
