Welcome to the Be Inspired Hop, today we are sharing projects created with our "New Favourites" from the Annual Catalogue. You may have arrived here from my adorable friend Jenn in Canada, or, if you are starting here, please see the complete list at the bottom of this post which will guide you through all the inspirational projects the team has to share. I 'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created!  I love it when we get a new Annual Catalogue, it means lots of new gorgeous products to create with. My cards were created with the Hand-Penned Petals and co-ordinating Penned Flowers Dies and I've used the pretty Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper too! The piece of floral Hand-Penned DSP has been die cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies. I'll definitely be using these dies a lot! Next I've added three layers of the floral die which I added Adhesive Sheet to the back - this makes layering die cuts so easy. Then I adhered them to a vellum layer. To crea

Hello, and welcome to this month's Stampin' Fancy Friday Design Team Challenge using the New In-Colors. This month the Team are sharing their inspiration with the new In-Colors. Our challenge was to use at least one of the new colours. I picked Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink. Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia are two of the five gorgeous new In Colors and work perfectly with the Hydrangea Haven Bundle to create these pretty feminine cards. The watercolour washed background gives different depths of each colour and enhance the white flowers and other elements. You can check out my YouTube video showing how I created these cards here . Also check out the other cards created by the Stamping Fancy Friday Design Team  here  for lots of inspiration using the new In-Colors.

Hello and welcome to my Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team project for June. I'm Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand and I am so excited to be part of this amazing team of talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world.   This month my projects were created using the Beauty of Friendship Bundle from the new 2021-22 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I chose the colours for my cards to co-ordinate with the colours in the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper - Pool Party, Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo! The tree was die cut three times with Basic White Cardstock that had the Adhesive Sheet on it. I carefully peeled the back off the Adhesive Sheet and layered them up on top of each other. The Adhesive Sheets make adhering fine die cuts so easy and clean! To create an autumnal feel to my tree, I water-coloured a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo inks before die-cutting it. I love using colours outside the Suite, especia
