Stampin' Stars 2016 Blog Hop

Morning everyone! Well the last week has gone by very quickly and it's Saturday already. In my last post I mentioned that I was taking part in a blog hop and today is the day. There is a complete list of those taking part at the bottom of my post. Welcome if you have joined me from another blog!

Today's card has been made using products from the brand new catalogue that launched on the 1st June. If you haven't got your copy yet just drop me an email and I'll get one in the post to you.

Stampin' Up! Painters Pallete

There are several new product suites in this years catalogue but the one I absolutely love is the Playful Pallete suite. I'm not usually one for lots of bright colours, I tend to stick to blues or purples but I have just fallen in love with this years in colours. They go so well together and in this product suite they are just shown off perfectly.

For today's card I have used the playful pallete washi tape pack to create this simple yet effective card. I simply cut some whisper white card stock and wrapped the washi tape over the top of it. As it's sticky by nature and easy to tear it was really simple to do. There is also a purple roll within the pack but I decided I use far too much purple and so chose Peekaboo Peach as my main colour. Here is a close up of the lovely colours. The photo doesn't show the lovely shine that the washi tape has given to the card.

Also within this product suite there is a paper stack which co ordinates with the tape, stamp set and card stock. I'm going to have great fun playing around with this set!
