Stampin Creative New Catty Hop

Good Morning and welcome to another hop around the Stampin Creative girls world of creativity. You have joined me from the lovely EIMEAR

It's been a funny month weather wise but when I created this project it was a gorgeous suny day and I was definitely feeling the tropical love!

I am so in love with this little set, Garden In Bloom which can be found on pg 119 of the new catalogue. It is a set of 20 stamps and includes the cutest bumble bee ever!

I used Wild Wasabi, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and the new Watermelon Wonder inks to give a totally tropical feel. 

As you can see I stamped the Watermelon Wonder in second generation using the solid little flower stamp then used first generation to over stamp the outline. This is a lovely way to get various shades of the same colour ink and works really well with the deeper colours. 

I was also careful to NOT line up the images too perfectly as I wanted a more relaxed style to the card and gift box. 

Here is a little peep at the very simple but gorgeous butterfly which is also in the set. It can be stamped simply like this as an outline or filled in using 2 or 3 step stamping to create a more intricate butterfly. 
The sentiment comes from the set too and I just coloured the stamp using my Stampin' Markers. I have inked the rest of the sentiment seperately and stamped it inside the card. A lovely way to get an insert for your cards.

Right, it's now time for you to hop on over to the lovely EMMA and see what she has created for us.

Have a lovely hop and do leave a comment about today's creations.
