Just for You - 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop


Welcome to our first ever 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop.  I am so excited and honoured to be a part of this hop with some very talented Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world.  Our hops are themed based and the theme for January is Occasions to coincide with the release of the new Occasions catalogue.  

There are some amazing products in this catalogue so be sure to follow the links at the end of this post to see the amazing projects everyone has created.

As it is summer here in Australia, I decided to create a fun, fresh card that suits any occasion (pardon the pun lol).  Here is my card....


I have taken my inspiration for this card from the Tutti-Frutti suite.  This is a great suite with cute images and vivid colours.  
Using Peekaboo Peach cardstock from the 2016-2018 In Colour collection as my base, I then matted this with a fruity design from the Tutti-Frutti 6x6 Designer Series Paper.  Then I cut another piece of matching cardstock about 3/4" wide and adhered to the front of the card.

I used a sentiment from A Good Day stamp set on Whisper White cardstock and then punched out the centre with a 1"circle punch.  I layered this on co-ordinating coloured cardstock, first a 1 1/4" plain circle, then a scalloped circle using the new 1 3/8" Scallop Punch and mounted this using Dimensionals.

To finish off, I added alternating colours of the Tutti-Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins.
