Stamp 'N Hop May Blog Hop

Welcome back! We in the Stampin' Up! World are heading in to a great time of the year - the launch of the new Annual Catalog! It's one of the most exciting times of our calendar as we get amazing new products that go alongside some of our already amazing current products. So without further ado, this month's Stamp 'N Hop International Blog Hop's theme is New Products from the upcoming catalog!

One of my favorite items from the upcoming catalog is the Sea of Textures bundle. While this bundle has some amazing DSP with it, I decided to make my own with my Shimmer White Cardstock.

I took Saran Wrap and duct taped it to one of my pierce mats to create a surface to watercolor on. I then took drops of Island Indigo, Pool Party and Mint Macaron (yay for it returning!!) reinkers, misted water on it, and then laid my Shimmer White Cardstock on it, gently dabbed it on to the Saran Wrap, picked it up and VIOLA! Every single background came out different and perfectly flawed.

I then stamped the netting stamp in Crumb Cake and the reeds in Fresh Fig. I also stamped the Octopus in Fresh Fig and used my matching dies to cut it out and adhere it with dimensionals. I then adhered the whole Shimmer White piece to a Crumb Cake A2 Base.

This card was super easy and fun to make. There are so many ways you could spice it up, but sometimes a little goes a long way!!

I hope you hop along to my friend Britney Vanderlaan!
