Stampin’ Up! Hawaiian Grand Vacation Blog Hop – Something Old, Something New

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


Welcome to the New Zealand landing station on another global blog hop with the Hawaiian Grand Vacation Achievers!  This time our theme was “Something Old, Something New” – combine a new product with an existing one.

The Wild About Flowers set is one that I had on my wish list from the first flick through the new catalogue, and it was the first of the shipment to see ink:

Love the new Silver Thread, shown here just peeping out.

The Wild About Flowers is a two-step stamping set, meaning the stems and the blooms are separate images, so you can easily stamp them in different colours.  Easy and gorgeous.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your journey!

    Jacque, I didn’t “have to have” the brick embossing folder or this stamp set until I saw this card. But after seeing this, I don’t think I can go without – this is STUNNING!!!

    I wasn’t going to get this stamp but now I am! SOLD! Beautiful and simple!

    Loving the brick texture folder – oh so pretty


    Gorgeous card Jacqui – love the brick embossing with the flowers.

    Jacque this is such a lovely card! The combination of pure colours and white is so appealing. I adore the brick wall background but am always inclined to dirty it up; after this card I am refraining! Thank you so much for the inspiration! Love it!

    This card is stunning in its simplicity Jacque. I too find it hard to go past a touch of vintage and your addition is just perfect.
