Stampin' Llamas Summer Blog Hop

 Welcome June!  What a wonderful month.  Summer begins, the start of a new Stampin' Up! catalog year, and, of course, another llama hop. Starting June 14, the Stampin' Llamas will be hopping again.  This time we will be showcasing the many wonderful products from the 2012-2013 Catalog.  Check back then to get hopping with us.

The first stamp set that I purchased from the new catalog was Papaya Collage.  Collage is one of my favorite things to do.  The first two cards use this unique new set.
Papaya Anniversary
 This card was inspired by a fellow demonstrator, PENNY HANUSZAK and you can see here card here.
Stamp Set:  Memorable Moments, Papaya Collage

Ink:  Stazon
Accessories:  Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam Binding, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Big Shot, Square Lattice Folder, Permanent Black pen, Framed Tulip Folder

Papaya Collage ATC Card
This card was inspired by Jackie Topa and her ATC card.  I just love the collage effect on this one.
Stamp Set:  Papaya Collage, Loving Thoughts
Paper:  Comfort Cafe DSP, Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla, Midnight Muse
Ink:  Midnight Muse, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede Marker

Travel Clipboard
Last week we had a clipboard class using DSP and making our attachments from stamp sets.  The above clipboard was so easy to make because all of the paper and attachments except the word "Travel" came from the new DSP set "Fan Fair".  It is soooo cool, there are two pages of empheria that you can add to cards, collage or scrapbook pages.  I stamped the "Travel" using the new Morning Post Alphabet Stamp Set and punching it out with the Postage Stamp Punch.  I just am so excited about the Fan Fair Suite which starts on page 106 of the new catalog.  This was a really fun class and I will be posting soon some more collage projects that I am dreaming up.  Below are some more of the Clipboards that I made using retired DSP and new stamp sets.

It is time to continue on your journey through our hop and check out Steph's great projects:
