Around the World Blog Hop - New Stamps & Products!

Hello, and welcome to another Around the World Blog Hop! This month, we are showcasing our favourite new stamps & products from the 2016/17 Annual Catalogue! There are so many amazing new products, it's hard to narrow it down and show just a few. You may have arrived here from Barbara's blog... her card this month is so inspiring! You can continue on to Cecile's blog by using the blog list links at the bottom of my post... you don't want to miss any of the projects, so be sure to check them all out!

Every year, I tell myself I have enough flower stamps and I don't need to buy anymore... And of course, every year I end up buying at least one new flower stamp set. My resolve didn't last very long this year--on my first order, I had to have this set, Blooms & Wishes. I love the watercolour look it has, and I think it will make such pretty cards. Here is the first card I've made with it:

I created a Double Front Card. Here are some more pictures so you can see more details:

In addition to the Blooms & Wishes stamp set, I also used two new In Colors (Emerald Envy and Peekaboo Peach) and  a new embossing folder (Seaside) on this card. The other colors I used are Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride. The larger flowers are stamped off to give a softer look. 

Thanks so much for joining us on our trip around the world featuring new products from the 2016/17 Stampin' Up! Catalogue! I hope you'll take the time to check out everyone's projects this month by using the links below:
