Swirly Bird Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! 2016 Mediterranean Cruise sets sail this Sunday. I'm counting down the days with excitement and trepidation as I'm not sure about this kind of travel, but i'm looking forward to spending time with all the other lovely demonstrators from across the world including those who have joined this and other blog hops over the past few months.  If you are starting here with me today, Zoe Tant, our blog theme is new annual catalogue. As most of us don't have very much of it so far it was a limited choice, but I went with the new Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles dies. 
I encourage you to visit all the blogs on the hop to get a taste of things to come and to start making your wish list for the new catalogue which goes live on 1 June.  There will be a bonus spend on offer to all qualifying hostesses in June so be sure to book your party with me very soon. 

So a little more detail about my card. It features the new in colour Dapper Denim teamed with one of your favourites Blushing Bride and of course that bling that you know I love in the form of rhinestones and dazzling diamonds glimmer paper cut using the dies. Isn't it effective...... Love it! 

The flowers are made using the Petite Petals and Tree Builder punch and gently teased for texture using the stampin' pierce mat and a bone folder.  Using tone on tone you can create fun backgrounds with the Swirly Bird stamp set.  

Wish me luck for my first cruise and don't forget to check out the hop and get loads of inspiration.  I'll be hoping to have some fun posts for you next week too so check back for more sneak peeks.

Thanks for visiting here remember you're at Zoe Tant on the list. 

Happy day Zx

Argh Zoe. Now I think I have to own this set too. Your card is fabulous! And the hint to use Dapper Denim with Blushing Bride is much appreciated. See you on board soon (I think). God Bless, ~Cynthia <><

I really like this style, the modern flower background, the curvy lines decorated with flowers, so pretty together. This is one of my favorite cards.
