Extraordinary Blog Hop - Exciting Times

I’ve used 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalogue Products as follows:

  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paperr
  • Grapefruit Grove Classic Stampin’ Pad (2018 – 2020 In Color)
  • Pearlised Doilies
  • Whisper White 5/8: Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon

The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is just gorgeous. It has hand painted deigns on heavy weight paper (more like card weight). The 4 designs have a translucent, pearlised finish. You get 24 sheets , 4 each of 6 double-sided designs.

I turned the doily over and sponged it with Grapefruit Grove ink using a sponge dauber. It just seemed to lift the sentiment which was stamped in Memento Black. The flowers are in Grapefruit Grove and I used the Stamparatus to place them perfectly. Don’t you just love the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

      Glad you like the Grapefruit Grove colour. It’s a wonderful DSP to work with too. Many thanks for stopping by to leave a comment, I do appreciate it

    So pretty! The stamping inside the card is that nice extra touch that shows how much you care for the recipient.
