7 days and counting!

It's only 7 days until the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue goes live!  Are you as excited as I am?  First of all, that means that starting June 4th you'll be able to order all of the new products in the catalogue.  But of course, that means that as of June 4th, many of the products from last years catalogue retire!

Do you have stamp sets or paper or colours that are on your Wishlist?  It's not too late to get your order in before they retired.  Check out the retiring product lists from both the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue and the Occasions Catalogue.
You can shop in my Online store to get your favourites before they retire.

Today I'm sharing a sneak peek from the new catalogue that features the "To a Wild Rose" stampset and coordinating dies as well as one of the new In Colours - Purple Posy.



I love how this card turned out.  The Country Floral embossing folder which is a carry over from Sale-a-Bration is perfect as the background for the pretty flower and leaves.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the flower which is a 3 step stamp.  I used Blackberry Bliss for the outline, Highland Heather for the inside of the flower and Purple Posy for the background.  The leaves are Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow.  To finish off the card, I added some Pink Metallic Thread and a few small pearls.

Instructions

  1. Cut a piece of Purple Posy card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base
  2. Emboss a 4" x 5 1/4" Purple Posy card stock using the Big Shot and the Country Florals embossing folder.  Adhere to the card base using Snail
  3. Stamp the outline of the flower using Blackberry Bliss ink and your Stamparatus
  4. Stamp the inside of the flower using Highland Heather ink
  5. Stamp the background using Purple Posy ink.
  6. Cut out using the coordinating die.
  7. Stamp 2 leaves - outline in Mossy Meadow ink and inside in Granny Apple Green ink.
  8. Cut out using the coordinating die.
  9. Wrap the Metallic Thread around the fat part of your palm 4-5 times.  Pull off your hand and pinch together.  Adhere to card base using Snail.
  10. Adhere the flower using Dimensional
  11. Adhere the leaves using Glue Dots
  12. Stamp the sentiment on a 3/4" x 1 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock.  Cut a tag end and adhere to card base using a Glue Dot.
  13. Adhere small pearl embellishments.
You'll be able to order the supplies to make this card as of June 4th when the new catalogue is released.  If you live in Canada and would like to receive a copy of the Catalogue and you don't have a demonstrator, please email me to request a copy.

The Designer Series Paper is just one of the beautiful papers you get in this package!

I added a sentiment stamped in Crumb Cake and a little bit of Mossy Meadow twine.

  2. Stamp the Magnolia image in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White card stock

  6. Wrap Mossy Meadow twine around Designer Series Paper 3 times and tie a bow on the left side.
  7. Adhere Designer Series Paper  to card base using Snail
  8. Stamp sentiment in Crumb Cake on a 2" x 1 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock and adhere to the card using Dimensionals

For this card, I stamped the bird image 3 times on Whisper White card stock and coloured it with Stampin' Blends markers.  Then I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to cut out different parts of the image.  Isn't this card so pretty!

Instructions

  1. Fold Pool Party card stock (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") in half to form card base.
  2. Stamp the bird image 3 times using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  3. Colour the images using Petal Pink, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.
    1. For the birds, I used Light and Dark Petal Pink and Dark Crumb Cake
    2. For the tree, I used Light and Dark Crumb Cake

  5. Adhere each of these sections to a piece of Petal Pink card stock (1 15/16" x 1 6/16") using Snail
  6. Emboss a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Pool Party card stock using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and your Big Shot
  7. Adhere the coloured images to the embossed card stock - approximately a 1/4" from the top.  (Tip:  I adhere the middle image first in the centre and then align the other two images on either side) using Dimensionals
  8. Wrap a piece of the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim around the embossed card stock and adhere with Snail
  9. Tie a bow using a small piece of the Lace Trim.  
  10. Attach 2 Bird Ballad Trinkets to a piece of Linen Thread and tie through the bow of the Lace Bow in a Bow
  11. Stamp the sentiment on a 1/2" x 1 3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and adhere under the Lace Trim using a Glue Dot.
  12. Adhere the embossed front to the card base using Snail
