Global Stamping Friends - Hello New Friends

It has arrived!  Yes for all those waiting the new 2017/18 Stampin' Up! catalogue is now live.

We've decided to show you some of new products on this hop, but there are lots more in the new catalogue so don't forget to take a look!

I've decided to show the new Ronald McDonald House stamp,  Sharing Sweet Thoughts.  I was very lucky to receive this yesterday as I am part of a 10,000 card Birthday Wishes Challenge here in the UK. This is where over 3 days the aim is to make 10,000 birthday cards for the Ronald McDonald Houses- luckily I'm not doing it by myself!  This is also a great set as SU donate a proportion of each sale to the RMHC in each country. Plus it's cute and yes does match the Jar framelits!

So on to the cards.

Above is selection of cards I made, sometimes I just like to play around with stamp sets to see what happens.  There is no right or wrong to crafting and sometimes you just need to give it a go.  The Happy Birthday is also from another new set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, isn't it fabulous?

At the moment my favourite is this one - clean and simple and can be used for both feminine and male cards- always a bonus!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my projects and please hop along to see what other goodies the new catalogue has in store for you by using the next button to hop along to Rachel's blog to see her lovely project.

  1. I *love* ALL your cards! I struggle with keeping them simple but feeling like I've actually still made an effort ;-) My favorite is the strawberry one, I guess I'll have to get that Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set after all! Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
