2019 – 2020 Annual Catalogue

StampinUpCatalog2019-533x640

Yes!  It’s here!
Are you as excited as I am?
So many gorgeous new things to get inspired by.
If you would like to have a look at the new catalogue online, you can do so by clicking here.
If you live in Australia, and don’t have a current demonstrator, but would like a copy of the catalogue, feel free to leave a message or send me an email, and I will send one out to you.
And here is a little inspiration for you, cards made with brand new products, or products that have carried over from the last catalogues.

First up, one of my absolute favourites from the catalogue, the Come Sail Away Suite, which you will find on pages 144-146 of the new catalogue.
I will be running a class using this one in July, so if you are local to me, make sure you book in for that one.  And I am looking at starting some Cards by Mail classes very soon, so stay tuned for that, too.

Another favourite is the gorgeous Designer Series Papers from the Perennial Essence Suite (Pages 106-108).  I just adore these papers, the colours and patterns, well, everything about them, they are totally gorgeous!

Next we have the Bird Ballad Suite, which is on pages 90-92.
The birds are so lovely for colouring!

These gorgeous little ducks are from the Fable Friends stamp set, which carries over from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  And on the far left is some new Designer Series Papers from the Come Sail Away suite.  I love them, they are perfect for masculine cards.

If you would like to order any of the new products, you can do so by going to my online store.
Don’t forget that if your order is under $250 you can use the monthly Host code for June which is:  EFY37WNN
If your order is over $250 you get Host benefits all to yourself, and there are some lovely new Host stamp sets, one of which I will feature in a later post.

Happy Stamping!

Lots of Hugs

Yes, you guessed it, today I have some more cards that I made using the Hugs From Shelli, Paper Pumpkin kit.
I may seem to be a little obsessed with this kit!
But actually I really just love it, and enjoy the challenge of creating new ideas.

Hugs From Shelli Pink Flowers

I have used half of one of the original card fronts, and layered it over some Shimmer White cardstock which has been embossed using the retiring Petal Pair embossing folder.  And then popped one of the Die cut flowers that came in the kit, over the corner.  That little bit of Old Olive cardstock and ribbon just helps the leaves pop a little.

The next two cards use the same colour combo, of Pool Party and Crumb Cake.

The first uses the Country Floral Embossing Folder in the background, and the second the Tin Tile Embossing Folder – both of them carrying over to the next catalogue.  Yay!!!!
Both of these cards make use of the envelopes from the kit, which I have cut up to create the sentiment layer, and also the patterned papers.
The top card just uses one envelope, and the second card has used one plus the flap off a second.

I have also used the stamp set to create a completely different look….

Hugs From Shelli Yellow Flowers
I have stamped the flower image repeatedly on a piece of white cardstock, using Early Espresso ink, then coloured each flower with Stampin Blends.
The gorgeous little bird is part of a stamp from a new stamp set called Free As A Bird.  It is a beautiful stamp set, part of the Bird Ballad Suite.

I hope there is something there to inspire you to get creative today.
Happy Stamping!
