Two Reasons To Love New Things

It's New, and it's coming out so, so soon!

It's the next Stampin' Up! catalog . . . and I'm excited to share it with you.  Here are two reasons you'll love it as much as I do -

  1. Coordinating Awesomeness . . .
Just see how beautifully these products all coordinate?  
No guessing - no getting home with a purchase and then finding out the size is wrong.  It's all done for you so everything will match and go with everything else.  It's like having a crafting stylist.  Way cool.

Joanne Tarle made this gorgeous card using new goodies mixed with old favorites.  The Mosaic Textured Impressions embossing folder and Mosaic Madness stamp set is new.  The Itty Bitty Shapes punch is one of my all-time faves.  I really like the way she did the colors on the Whisper White piece.  Very tasteful.

     2.  Delectable Papers
This new Designer Series Paper that Denise Diuk used is spot on trendy.  That helps with your confidence level when you're crafting.  It's called Soho Subway, and I just can't get enough.  Did you notice the paper piercing going on along the right side of the card?  What a nice touch!
Here's the tip of the day for you from Denise:
  • To make the flower, she used the Floral Frames Framelit and cut out one from the card stock.  
  • She crumpled the card stock and the peeled the layers of card stock from one another.  That creates a "felted" or "sueded" look.
  • To age the flower and bring it in line with her DSP, Denise then sponged a bit of Early Espresso ink onto her felted layer.  Underneath is a 1-3/4" Circle Punch.
Just outstanding, Denise and Joanne. Thanks so much for sharing - can't wait to make some more!!
