Pals Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the first Pals Blog Hop of 2013! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to introduce you to new Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Spring Catalog. We hope you find inspiration and ideas for using the new stamps, papers and accessories.
You should have just left stop number 8 on the Pals Hop - Jennifer Takacs at Stamped In FullIf so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
Here we are in 2013 with a brand new Stampin' Up! catalog.  The new products that I have used from this catalog are:

The White Tea Lace Doilies
That's the Ticket Stamp Set
The Vine Street Embossing Folder 

can you spot them?

This is an old-fashioned Valentine's card; one that you hand to your valentine.  As you can see, this one will not go through the mail in an envelope; you 'd have to insert in into a small box.

I used four White Tea Doilies to build the flower.  I spritzed the card front with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  Other Stampin' Up! products used:

1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon-Cherry Cobbler
Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White Card Stock
Ticket Duo Builder Punch
Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine
Cherry Cobbler Scallop Tulle Ribbon
Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set
Fashionable Hearts Embosslets

Check out the new offerings in the spring catalog and get started on your special valentines.
The next stop is Kim Czenszak at Live Love Stamp, stop number 10 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope

    1. Sweet Valentine with one WOW flower to show it off!

    2. What a beautiful Valentine!! I love the fluff!

    3. Oh I like that new shimmer spray! Thank you for showing us how wonderful it is!! and for crafting and sharing! First hop of 2013 has been so much fun!

    4. White and Red.... love them. Great card!

    5. I really like both of your cards. I like the contrast between the two cards -- fancy and simple. My favorite is the first one -- the 4 doilies made a beautiful flower. Thanks for sharing.
