Hey Stampers !!
Today I am FINALLY sharing with you some Sneak Peeks from the new Annual Catalogue that is going live on May 31st !! I got my box of goodies last week, but haven't really had a chance to play with the new stamps until yesterday. I always find that when I get LOT of brand new stuff, I get a big overwhelmed. So I had to just look at them a bit before I decided what I wanted to do with them. LOL I knew that I wanted to use a bunch of the new colors as well, so I decided to get some inspiration for my color combo from the PAST! the returning colors of Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry were In Colors back in 2010, before I was involved with Stampin' Up! so they are new colors to me. But some of the coordinating In Colors from that year I am very familiar with - Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede !! So I thought to pair these 5 colors together again would be a fun place to start ! And I can see why these colors were put together initially - they look SO great together !! Vibrant and fun. I decided to use 2 new sets - Label Love and Really Good Greetings, along with my faithful Papillon Potpourri. I really love what I came up with !! Take a look !!
Isn't that so cute !?! First, I prepared my sentiment piece. Since I don't have any of the new colors markers yet, I had to stick to my Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo. I coloured this fun staying with my markers, and stamped it onto some Whisper White. I die cut it out with my Ovals Collection framelits, as well as a layer in the Bermuda Bay. I paper pierced the Bermuda Bay oval and adhered the stamped oval with some Dimensionals. I also popped a fun Crushed Curry star that I punched with the Merry Minis Punch Pack on the top, and glittered it up with some Dazzling Details. Fun !!
Next I stamped the fun label from Label love. Most of the stamps in the new set have sentiments, but I love the versatility of this frame image ! I stamped it in my 4 colors, and punched them out with the NEW matching Artisan Label Punch. I adhered them to the 4 corners of my Chevron embossed Whisper White layer measuring 4" x 5-1/4". I then stamped my favourite butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri set in the 4 colors as well, and punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly punch. I attached them to the middle of the "frame" with a Glue Dot and added a fun trio of Rhinestones to the middle. All of this was then added to a Soft Suede card base.
So thats my Sneak Peek for today !! If you want to have the new 2013-2014 Annual Catalogue (and don't already have a demonstrator), let me know and I will gladly send one out to you !! It is SO full of amazing products !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
