Pals New Catalog Blog Hop: Moving Forward

Welcome to the Pals New Catalog Blog Hop! The Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to share some fabulous cards and projects showcasing our favorite products from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog! You've probably hopped over from Marivic Lebardo at My Stampin' Blog.

I'm stop number 30 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for new Stampin' Up! products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

The new stamps I'm featuring here are from this year's Ronald McDonald House collection.  The stamp set is called "Moving Forward". It's absolutely adorable and full of youthful fun.

I used the new Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper to add a little pizzazz. The designer series paper includes 6 colors of double sided pages.  

These Polka Dots are in Marina Mist.

I made a second card using the sailboat stamp.  I added a strip of the  large Polka Dot Designer Series Paper in Real Red for an additional "pop" of color.  I also added a couple of brads for a spiffy extra touch.

Can't you just feel the fresh breeze blowing through.  Enjoy and come back again!

Here are the products I used to make these cards:
Stamp set: Moving Forward (Wood-Mount 126320, Clear-Mount 126322)
Designer Series Paper: Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper (126902)
Card Stock:  Real Red (102482), Pacific Point (111350), Marina Mist (119682), Night of Navy (100867), Whisper White (100730)
