I had my new catalogue launch last Saturday!! The ladies and I had a great time of playing with new products, seeing lots of new samples and playing a few games as well.
I decided to do small 3″ x 3″ cards in the new in-colours with a matching envelope using the new in-colour envelope paper for the make and takes.
For each card, I wanted to highlight a new stamp set or product.
So for Delight Dijon, I used the You’re so sweet stamp set and the eye catching Bohemian DSP. We used my favourite marker to stamp technique using Delightful Dijon, Island Indigo and Blackberry Bliss markers and cut it out with the banner framelit from the Mini Treat Bag thinlits.
The You’ve got this stamp set is a really versatile set. It has a great background stamp, a gorgeous flower and sentiments as well. For our second card, we stamped the background in Watermelon Wonder and then the flower in black. Then a piece of whisper white cotton ribbon around the card and a bow to top it off.
Now Mum loves this next in-colour almost as much as she loves crumb cake!! On our Tip Top Taupe sample, we used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and cut out the basket by hand. We then stamped the flower stems in Cucumber Crush and the flowers in Delightful Dijon. Isn’t this one cute!!
I love the fact that the small DSP stacks are now coming in 6″x6″ size. One this card, I used the Cherry on Top DSP stack. We stamped the sentiment from the Build a Birthday stamp set in Cucumber Crush and then punched the end of the banner using the new banner triple punch. I lurve this new punch!! I can’t cut an even banner with scissors to save myself, so I think this punch was made just for me! We also added a little bit of twine.
On our last card, we used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set again. Did you know that Stampin’ Up! will be donating $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for Sprinkles of Life stamp set sold? So you really need to get this set!! We hand cut the ice-cream cone and then used the co-ordinating Tree builder punch to cut out the ice-cream. We stamped in Melon Mambo and added a touch of dazzling diamonds.
I made all the envelope beforehand using the envelope punch board. They were so easy to whip up!! and don’t they look cute!!
