PALs June Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the June Pals Blog Hop and our kickoff to the new catalog! Are you ready to see wonderful creations featuring new products from the 2013-14 Stampin' Up! catalog? Get ready to update your wishlist! 
You should have just left stop number 4 Maggie Mata on the Pals Hop - Maggie Mata at Maggie Made Cards. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

 Besides the wonderful new incolors for this year, I'm showing off two new products. The first, Giggle Greetings stamp set was on my list the minute I saw it. 4 darling, funny greetings.  I love pretty and sweet as much or more then anyone, but once in a while a funny card is just the ticket.
I happen to be the "cat lady", so that is the first one I used.   I have a friend who is going to love this.

Next is the Flower Shop bundle.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on this. There are several different versions of the flower in the set and the bundle comes with the punch.  Oh, almost forgot, I also included one of the new candy dots!  So fun to use.  Just  slide them off the plastic and plop them down where you want them, and you get the great look of a brad with out punching holes.

I also did a quick stamp of the flower on the envelope.
I used water color paper to stamp my image and also for the flower. You can do it with whisper white just fine, I love the added texture and the way watercolor paper reacts to well, watercoloring.
I just used my Blender pen touching the tip to the ink pad. This method works so wonderful with the new foam pads.

I don't as yet have any of the new incolor ribbons, and I really just wanted the simple look of the seam binding, so I took my seam binding and sponged on the color using the ink pad.
