If you've joined us for the first time, our Blog Hop runs in a circular fashion, so it doesn't matter where in the list of participants you begin. If you continue going to the next blog you'll eventually wind up where you started. So, if you started at the beginning of the hop you've arrived here from the very talented Marie Green's blog. Weren't her projects just fantastic?
Party Animal Suite
Bev Gajsek from Chilliwack BC and I were delighted to share a Display Board at Stampin' Up!s On Stage Vancouver in November 2016.
Bev created her fabulous display using products from the Party Animal Suite. She totally inspired me with her fun interpretation of this suite. She created such over the top amazing cards and 3-D projects, that I had to share them with you. Everything was so well co-ordinated, especially the stamp set and pop-up birthday cards. Here is a look at Bev's display and cards:

Here's My Card:
|This card is so colourful. It's sure to be a hit! The Party Animal Designer Paper is a perfect mix of colours and designs.|
|These Party Animal Embellishments are so much fun. They come in a package of 16 and there are 8 each of two designs - this balloon or a cute little party hat. I also love this 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. It's awesome to work with. I coloured the Confetti stamp image with a Tangerine Tango marker and stamped it inside and out on the card. I know this will become one of my favourites this year because it's just the right size to add some extra pizazz to your cards.|
Stamp Set: Balloon Adventures Stamp Set
Ink: Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, Emerald Envy, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White

Urban Underground Suite:Collection:
When Stampin' Up! confirmed I had been picked to be a Display Board Artist in November at the Vancouver OnStage I was over the top excited. They told me I'd receive a "top secret" box of new products from the Occasions 2017 catalogue to design my display with.
Well, I was on pins and needles waiting to receive my supply box and see what I would be designing with. When it finally arrived in September and I opened the box I'm sure you could have heard me screaming with delight from Abbotsford to Vancouver. It was over the top and this was one of the best experiences of my stamping career.
I instantly fell in love with the new products I received, which included the Nailed It and Urban District stamp sets, the Build It Thinlet Dies and Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder. To make it even better Stampin' Up! also provided me with a co-ordinating card stock pack some of the Urban Underground Embellishments and Urban Underground Washi tape. The rest was up to me and I had such fun creating 15 projects to put on display and to share with you.
|The Nailed It Stamp Set is awesome! You'll love it for your masculine cards!|
The Build It Thinlet Dies makes it so easy to but out the stamped shapes and mix and match papers and card stocks for your designs. I had so much fun with these dies.
|The Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder is out of this world. It embosses on card stock and foil papers, and looks great on both sides.|
|Urban District - the perfect Father's Day and Birthday stamp set.|
Here are My Cards Featuring Nailed It:
The cards below all feature elements of the Nailed It Stamp Set, Build It Thinlet dies and the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder. The card stocks used are a mixture of Delightful Dijon, Basic Gray, and Very Vanilla. I've also used Silver Foil, Basic Rhinestones and Gold and Silver Metallic Metal Shapes to add additional bling.
I hope you've enjoyed the cards I've created using my favourite products so far from the the Occasions 2017 catalogue. I will provide more details on some of the cards in the coming weeks and will feature the Urban District stamp set in the next Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop which will take place on January 19th through 21st. Be sure to come back and visit.
Well what do you think? I'd love to have your comments and answer any questions you may have.
