New Stampin' Up Catalog – New Project Idea – & New Offers
Today, the new catalog from Stampin' Up! officially launches! You can view the catalog online for now if you do not have it yet (contact me if you still need a catalog). And starting at 1pm CST today, you can start ordering. If you have any issues ordering, as many will be online placing their first order, you can email me and I can place it for you.
There are several items that are must have's in my opinion and I will share those with you in a second. There is one product line that is not available yet, but they are listed in the catalog – and that is the Blendabilities Alchohol Markers. We are hoping they will become available in about a month.
My must have's are:
1. All the new embossing folders, because they are like potato chips – once you have one, you want to have them ALL!
2. New Heart Punch and Groovy Love stamp set – it is precious!!! (page 110)
3. Epic Alphabet Stamp Set – I have been waiting for a great alphabet and this one is just that! (page 85)
4. All the New Ribbon!!! (And if you are a ribbon junkie, you can get your ribbon the way that I get mine. Click here for more info.)
5. Flower Patch Stamp Set and Framelit Bundle!!! (page 156)
There is so much goodness to look at in the new Stampin' Up catalog, I want to hear your five fave's too! Be sure to post them in the comments below!
Onto a project idea…
I love mixing the flowers from Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets. They both have punches which makes them a winner in my book. I wanted to really make a card that highlighted the new In Colors. I did run into a hiccup along the way that I will be sharing with you.
This project started out with stamping a flower in the same ink pad color as card stock. I did this for each of the new In Colors – 1 big flower, 1 little flower and then punched them out. It went fine for the all the colors until I got to Blackberry Bliss. And it all came to a screeching halt. You can stamp on Blackberry Bliss with Blackberry Bliss ink – just don't be disappointed when you don't see it.
It is such a rich, intense purple, you can't see it.
So I tried replacing the purple flower with a purple ribbon and that didn't work – it took a lot of trial and error, and it finished with white ink on the Blackberry Bliss card stock.
This card doesn't use a lot of supplies, but it does allow you to see the texture of the new In Color Ribbon.
If you like all the In Colors, but you don't want to spend a lot money just on colors right now, consider joining my In Color Club. It is a way to get a little color each month until you have them all – and you get $25 in In Color Products for FREE as a thank you for being in the club!
To order any of the supplies used to create this card, simply click on the images below:
I so appreciate it when you order from me! The money from the sales I make this summer will go towards Emily's homeschool textbooks for the fall. And remember to also grab your Frequent Frequent Buyer Reward Tracker – where you can cash in on your purchases from me as a Thank You!
Also, in line with the Color Collectors Club is a Ribbon Share! It's a great way to get all the new ribbons – 1 yard of each – and see which will be your favorites. You can test them all out, use them up and not break the bank. To order all the new ribbon would cost over $300 – so this is a GREAT deal!
