Occasions Catalogue Blog Hop

Surprise! I'm on my blog today! I know, I know... I've been bad, really bad, about blogging. In fact... to be honest, it hasn't exactly been on the top of my list. You see... my camera was dropped on Halloween and unfortunately was damaged... needless to say I need to send it away to get fixed, but the cost is a little too much at the moment. However, the good news, is that I have some future commitments, so I'll be posting again soon. Anyways moving on to today's commitment! (and Thank You to my friend for taking today's photos for me!!!)

A little while back I was asked to join an Occasions Catalogue, Sneak Peek Blog Hop with an amazing line-up of demonstrators! I mean A-MAZ-ING! So, what else was I to say, but yes! ... and then fret about what I was going to create, so I didn't look juvenile amongst these stars! So, without further adieu... The Occasions Catalogue, Stampin' Up! Stars Blog Hop!

Today's blog hop is show casing the up coming 2016 Occasions Catalogue, Which starts January 5th! This catalogue is chalked full of amazing new product and you'll absolutely drool over it!

Today I am giving you a sneak peek of the beautiful Love Blossoms Suite! This suite is absolutely stunning!

A first glance, you might think this suite is just for the Valentine's Season - But it's not! It's very versatile, making it good for Mother's Day, Baby and Bridal showers and more!

I had the pleasure of presenting and playing with this suite for the Mississauga (Ontario, Canada) Onstage event! If you attended this Onstage, you may have seen my project on the board. I apologize if this is the case, but I decided to share this today anyways, as there were only 300 attendees that day and this blog hop is worldwide, so I'm pretty sure this will be "New" to most of you. If not, you'll now have details that you just don't find on display boards.

When I received the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits die and saw how beautifully intricate and detailed it was, I just knew I had to take it a step further, and show it's 3D potential! No lie this thinlit is STUNNING! The thinlit set come with with the large heart thinlit and 2 small coordinating flower thinlits.

For my artwork I used 4 cut-outs of the Heart and a BAH-zillion of the small flowers. (okay... maybe not that many, but that's what it felt like when you can only cut 2 at a time! LOL). I used Crumb Cake cardstock for the base heart and this one I used as a whole. I then cut out one in Blushing Bride, Old Olive, and Pear Pizzazz. From those, I cut out the details and glued them in place. Yes - a lot of work and a lot of fussy cutting, but so worth it.

For the flowers I used Whisper White cardstock and sponged the edges with Blushing Bride ink. The small flowers used 4 small flower cutouts and the large flowers used 4 small and 4 large flower cut-outs. I crumpled each flower cut-out and then glued them together in the centre. Once dried, I fluffed up my layers. Didn't they turn out beautiful!?!

To complete the flowers I added Blushing Bride, enamel glitter dots to their centre's. How beautiful are those! The enamel dots are a part of the Love Blossom Embellishment Kit. This kit has so much more then just these enamel dots! Foil heart doilies, string of pearls, pre-tied bows and more!

The sentiment: ... it's in the air, is from the coordinating stamp set: Bloomin' Love and is stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. I matted it with Blushing Bride cardstock and then layered it onto DSP from the "Love Blossom" DSP stack.

Now, you might be wondering about my frame... well, I couldn't find one that worked with my design, so I found a raw wood piece at the dollar store and transformed it! I removed the bird, sponged the frame with Crumb Cake ink, added vaseline to the edges and corners, painted it white with paint and once it was dry, I wiped it down! Done!

Thank you so much for dropping in! I hope you enjoyed my sneak peek of the Love Blossoms Suite. Next up is the VERY talented, Artisan Alumni, and Queen of Pink Buckroo Designs: Erica Cerwin! Enjoy!
