New Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi there


Today I'm participating in another blog hop with some of the lovely ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today our focus is on our new 2015-16 Annual Catalogue!

I would also like to mention the joining special for the month of June. Our group is one of the largest teams in Melbourne and offers support, fun and friendship to anyone who would like to join us; from hobby demonstrators to business demonstrators and anyone in between. For the month of June there is a bonus special, you receive two stamp sets of your choice (of any value) for FREE  along with your starter kit ($169). What are you waiting for, contact me today to find out more.

You may have come from blog of the lovely Tina Gillespie, but if not, you can start here and continue to the next blog by clicking on the button at the bottom of this post.

I going to show you some of the new designer series papers from the Annual Catalogue. The first card uses one of the 12 bright, fun designs from the 'Cherry On Top' paper stack. These smaller stacks are now 6" x 6" and contain 48 sheets - 4 sheets each of the 12 doubled sided designs. This is a simple but effective gate fold card, held closed with a magnetic catch. The candles on the stamped panel are from the new 'Build a Birthday' stamp set. The colours in this stack are Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.


For the inside I have added a strip of the matching spotted washi tape and the sweet cake is from the new set 'Endless Birthday Wishes' and coloured with copic markers.

This  second card is a complete colour contrast. It uses the 12" x 12" 'Timeless Elegance' paper with the colours of Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand and Basic Black. I wanted to keep this card really simple to let the beautiful rose design take centre stage.  I added one of the new metallic gold doilies to mat the birthday sentiment from the new 'Circle of Spring' set.

Would you please share the measurements for the gate-fold card?


I like the different types of card layout and the actual recipe for the candle card.

Kathryn Mangelsdorf

Two wonderful cards, oh so different in colour and style.


Both Very Beautiful cards

Christine Blain

Both beautiful cards, Judy. Love the brightness of the first card, and the fun fold. I also love the elegance of the second card. Great job with both!

Ros Davidson

I can't decide if I like the playful card or the elegance of the second one more. Amazing work as always Judy.

Mary Kelly

Such a contrast with your two cards Judy. The first one is so bright and cheerful (just love that dsp), and the second one is so muted and lovely.

Kate Morgan

Stunning cards Judy, love the bright colours, but equally the effect of the Timeless Elegance DSP with the gold!


Your work is fabulous Judy, love both of these.


Gorgeous cards as always, Judy. Your cats' names crack me up every time!!!


Beautiful cards Judy - I especially love the second card - so elegant
