Wacky Watercooler New Catalog(ue) Blog Hop

Wacky Watercooler New Catalog(ue) Blog Hop

Welcome to the very first Wacky Watercooler New Catalog(ue) Blog Hop. We are a creative group of Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrators who hang out together on our demonstrator website in the Wacky Women's Watercooler thread. Today we are hopping around blogville and sharing some projects using the new products from the 2013-14 Annual Catalogue..  If you're following the blog hop from the beginning, you are coming here from Jean's blog and then heading over to Heidi's. However, it doesn't matter where you start as the blog hop rotates in a circular manner. If you get lost along the way, you can always click the HOME button below and click from there.

Myself, I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. If you are local, I'd love to meet you at one of my events, which you can learn more about on this blog, my website or my Facebook page.  You could also email me and request to be put on my email lists.

Here are my projects today, which I am excited to share with you. 

First up.... using the new Stampin' Up! Simply Pressed Clay, I have made a magnet. It was really easy to make. I simply rolled out the clay and stamped it with Pleasant Poppies using stayz on ink and when it dried a little bit, I used Strawberry Slush and Gumball Green markers to color the poppies. I then sponged the whole thing with Crumb Cake ink. I made the indent with the Circle Framlits, though you could use a cookie cutter also. I'm loving this new product and all the neat projects we can use it for.

Here it is on my fridge with all my other magnets.

My second project uses the beautiful Swallowtail stamp and the Label Love stamp and coordinating punch. I also used the new 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim ribbon for this card. The color is the new in-color called Coastal Cabana which I absolutely love.

Swallowtail Birthday

I use some Dazzling Details to give the butterfly some sparkle. I simply dabbed it on then spread it around with my finger. 

Because the butterfly is so big, it does not fit on an average sized card front. For this card, I decided to have the butterfly wrap around to the back of the card also. 

Finally, this card here was made at this month's Demo Meeting. It was my first time using the Bleaching Technique which is what caused the halo-like effect around the Canadian Goose from the Wetlands stamp set.

 HERE are some more samples I made using the new products from the 2013-14 Annual Catalogue.

Thank you so much for hopping on over to my blog! I've enjoyed having you here. I hope you'll come again soon. Please do leave me a comment to let me know you were here. If you have a blog, I'll return a visit to you shortly.

Fabulous hop projects Terri! I love the magnet especially. What a great idea for our new clay. Love the wrap around look for the butterfly. Makes the back of the card as appealing as the front!
Hadn't thought about using a bleach technique with Wetlands. That idea and the stamp are now on my wishlist.
Thanks for hopping my wacky watercooler friend. Hug the mutt for me too. :D

Bev said...

Terri, that is so neat what you did with the clay. I will have to study that magnet a little more to decide if I could make that. You are very creative!

Deborah Smart said...

Terri, I just love how the bleach made a 'halo' around the goose - kinda appropriate for us Canadians, eh?! LOL
I'm going to have to try your idea of stamping in the Clay - love your magnet! :)

Heidi Weaver said...

Terri, I absolutely love the magnet and must try one for myself. I've just been doing the usual with the clay and have to spread my wings a bit. Yours is the goal to which I strive, now. Don't you just love the Wetlands stamp set? I haven't tried the bleaching technique on it but now, of course, I will have to. Love your projects. This is such fun!

Gail said...

How clever to use the clay for a magnet! Now that's thinking outside the box. The Wetlands set is on my wishlist - love what you've done with it. And the Swallowtail is awesome.

Heidi Weaver said...

Oh, and wrapping the Swallowtail onto the back of the card is brilliant!

Joyce Fisher said...

Hi Terri,

All of your projects are fabulous!!! My favorite is the swallowtail. I love how you wrapped the design around to the back of the card.

Peace, Love & Joy,

JoJo said...

Great projects! I wish I wasn't such a rubber stamp failure.

KatheD said...

Terri, I don't have anything to add to these comments, but want you to know, that I, too am impressed by your creativity! And, like everyone else, I want to try recreating everything you've shown us :)

Christine said...
