Stampin' Addicts New Catalog MEGA Blog Hop


Welcome to Stop #1 on the Stampin' Addicts New Catalog MEGA Blog Hop! This Blog Hop features 25 Stampin' Addicts members who are sharing their creativity with us. Each stop will feature products from the new 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog!

You may have just come from Krystal's blog Krystal's Cards and Morewhere she showcased some GORGEOUS projects using the Broadsheet Alphabet stamp set.

Today I am showing some ideas using a level 2 hostess set: Cute by the Inch

My first card is a simple one.  I used two of the images in the set to create a simple design trio. I love the greco design of these two images.  It reminds me of my trip to Italy and Greece.

 
My second card is a little more complicated.  I again used the greco style image to create my background on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I used a stamp-a-majig to line up the images nicely.  I then used the Owl punch to give my card a centerpiece.  I absolutely LOVE this owl!  It totally makes me smile the rest of the day when I see it.  I also love that he can have multiple personalities just by moving his eyes.  Isn't he adorable? 

My last project is a 3d Item.  I made a simple milk carton for a give away.  The Cute By the Inch images are absoluteley perfect for the milk carton die.  Its a quick and simple embellishment that packs quite a spectacular punch.  The milk carton die is made of Read Red textured cardstock and spritzed with Vanilla smooch spritz. 

I hope you've enjoyed these projects. Next stop on the Blog Hop is Holly over at InkPaperStamps. She will be showcasing a level 1 hostess set called Because I Care

Have fun creating your own masterpiece! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
