Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peeks

Yeah, the demonstrators who attended the 2017 Thailand Incentive Trip are finally able to now share some of the fabulous sneak peeks we got to see when the Holiday catalogue was launched on the trip.

The Holiday Catalogue is my favourite catalogue of the year as just love Christmas and I also love the crafty time leading up to Christmas. I'll be sending this catalogue out to my regular customers early August. If you are new to Stampin' Up!, don't have a demonstrator (or they are no longer active), FILL OUT THIS FORM to give me your address and I will be happy to send one to you too (all demonstrators get to order the catalogues at the same time, so if you have a demonstrator already, please ask them).

While in Thailand we got lots of the new products as pillow gifts, bean bag game prizes or giveaways in the general session. We also got to do some make and takes using the new products and see lots of samples on display. Here are some of the products and our make and takes.

Art With Heart Team May Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks!

Hello there. It's blog hop time again with my super talented team members from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team in Australia. Today we would like to preview some of the amazing new products from the upcoming 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which launches on June 1st. Be sure to ask any of the girls along the way for a copy of the new catalogue! We love to share what we are making with each other and with the stamping community. This is just one of the fun sharing activities we do each month, so if you are looking for a fun community of stampers to join ask us how quick, easy and affordable it is.

I am focusing on the Daisy Delight bundle of stamp set and punch for my cards. These will be available to purchase June 1st and there is a lovely coordinating Designer Series Paper as well.

For this card I have embossed the daisy twice onto Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured over the top using two of the new InColours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. Once dry, I cut out with the daisy punch and layered with a dimensional. The new Faceted Gems (also coming June 1st) are perfect flower centres, They come in clear (shown here) and gold.

In my second card, I have featured some of the  Beautiful Daisy Designer paper, along with paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (LOVE THIS!). You will also spy a new punch shape, and a new greeting from a great birthday stamp set / bundle called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This time I have stamped the daisy in Wisteria Wonder ink onto the same coloured cardstock. I have used a cold faceted gem for the flower centre.

My final card features what I am sure is going to be one of my new favourite colour combinations for the new catalogue - Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. This time I curled the daisy petals a little and added some Lemon Lime Ink (which turned out too hard to see because it's such a perfect match to the cardstock). For the flower centre, I have coloured some of the Perfect White Accents (in current catalogue) with a black sharpie and grouped them together.

For my background, I smooshed (that is a word you know!) onto a non stick BBQ sheet and then spritzed it and pressed the Shimmery White cardstock onto it (I did each colour separately).  You will also notice a new trim - and it's COPPER!! It's a loose -weave copper trim with zig zag stitching and will be available on June 1st. The cool thing is you can spread the fibres out which gives a great distressed look.

Stampin' Up! New Catalogue Sneak Peek: Fabulous Flamingo

Had a fun day stamping with a couple of friends last week, and got to play with a new soon to be released Stampin' Up! stamp set called Fabulous Flamingo. It will be in the new 2017/18 Annual Catalogue which I am distributing to my customers this month (click HERE to see how to get yours).

I'm not sure where my love affair with Flamingos began, but I totally love them. I haven't seen many in real like, but they are so graceful in pictures and they seem to be very on trend in beach wear, clothing, stationery etc.

This is the second Flamingo themed set we have (the other being Pop of Paradise which is more of a solid stamp). I really like that this new one has many different options, with three layers to the stamp. I have stamped the darker pink in Flirty Flamingo ink (I find it works best to stamp that one first), the lighter pink is Pink Pirouette and the outline in black. My background layer and water is stamped in Smoky Slate.
