Welcome to the Pals New Catalog Blog Hop! The Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to share some fabulous cards and projects showcasing our favorite products from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!

You've probably hopped over from Patti MacLeith at Papercrafts by Patti, I'm stop number 26 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for new Stampin' Up! products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track
Here is mine below:
I really love this new DSP paper called: Comfort Cafe. It works so well with a variety of colors such as one of the newest color cardstock called Summer Starfruit which is the center focus mat.

Also, finally...I got a chance to play with this stamp set called: My Friend. To get these results, I used sponge daubers onto the stamp image before stamping down onto Whisper White cardstock. Colors used were: Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, and Summer Starfruit (all new in-colors). For the sentiment, I used the stamp set: Loving Thoughts 

For the ribbon, I used 1/2" Steam Binding Ribbon (Baja Breeze) and for the button, I punched out a 1 1/4" circle from the DSP (Comfort Cafe) and adhered it to a clear button using Mod Podge . Therefore, giving it a matching button. For the embossed strip, I used the Tulip Frame folder with Baja Breeze cardstock to go against the Early Espresso.

Next I Have:
This is a simple easy to re-create card since this new DSP called: Floral District already has a beautiful print on it. Although the green is showing more bright in the picture than in real person (My camera). This is really a very nice DSP to work with and fun.

I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border in Whisper White, than embossed this beautiful flower from the new set called: Betsy's Blossoms using White on top of Pink Pirouette cardstock. Later I stamped the same image using Rich Razzleberry. Stampin Dimensionals were used in between.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set: Fabulous Phrases along with Rich Razzleberry ink.
