Pootlers Spring Summer catalogue Blog hop January 2017

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator



Welcome to another Pootlers Blog Hop, this time we are celebrating the new Spring / Summer 2017 Catalogue which went live last week. 


Beautiful You stamp set, Tip Top Taupe 15-17 In Colours


The Beautiful You stamp set has got to be my absolute favourite out of the new Spring and Summer Stampin' Up! catalogue. I was lucky enough to win it on the Prize Patrol at On Stage in Telford. When I first saw it I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed but as soon as I got home and started using it I fell in love.

I've made quite a few variations using the different ladies but I think this is my favourite. I have used Tip Top Taupe which is one of my favourite colours from the 15-17 In Colours. With the sponged edges it looks sepia and I just love that effect.

For the dress and hat I stamped on a piece of Tip Top Taupe Colour stack DSP and then fussy cut, not something I usually do but I think it was worth the effort.

I ended up making five different colourways although I think this is my favourite.

Here it is in Mint Macaron
