One of my most favorite times of the year as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is when I get to see the new catalog and look through it page by page. Not only do we get to have a first look at the catalog, but we can also pre-order some of the new in-colors and accessories, as well as choose from a select number of stamp sets and other products! For all of our customers, the catalog will be live to order from on June 2nd, but in the meantime...let us whet your appetite with some sneak peeks as The Creation Station is ready to share with you some fun, new products you're sure to love!
This month's theme is a Sneak Peek Free For All! You might have just hopped over from Jen Arkfeld's blog, but if you're starting here then get ready for some inspiration as you hop along with us today! We have some new members that have joined our team recently, so we would like to offer a big welcome to Martha Inchley, Dena Rekow and Sarah Klass. These are some amazingly talented ladies and we are excited to have them join us!
First up uses the ADORABLE new 6x6 DSP stack called Cherry on Top. These patterns in this paper stack are so bright and cheery!! It includes a few of the new 2015-2017 In-Colors called Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder, and Cucumber Crush, along with some originals like Crushed Curry, Soft Sky, and Bermuda Bay. I used the new Watermelon Wonder for the card base. The stamp set I used is also new and it's called Sprinkles of Life. This set you can find on the very last page of the catalog and with each purchase of this stamp set $3 will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. It's such a cute set ~ and you can even purchase a coordinating punch to help punch out many of the little pieces. To top it off there are so many cute sentiments in this set and the one I used on this card is one of my favorites! It might
Not sure if you could see it as well in the first picture, so I zoomed in to show you the new 2015-2017 In Color Ribbon. I just have it sneaking through on the bottom of the card, but it's actually 1" wide Dotted Lace Trim. It comes in all of the 5 new In-Colors.
The second card I am sharing today also uses a splash of the new Cherry on Top DSP pairs with a Crushed Curry card base. The tiny little banners on the bottom right are die-cut from the Bitty Banners Framelits. The focal point of the card is the new Build a Birthday stamp set. I love it! There are so many possibilities on creating a fun cake perfect for a birthday card. I also added a little Soft Sky Cotton Twine bow (from the 2015 Occasions Catalog). As you can see I don't have the greeting on the outside of the card, so you could really use this card for any sort of occasion meant to celebrate if you wanted to.
Or...you could add a birthday greeting on the inside! I wanted to spruce it up a little, so I added a piece of Whisper White and took a strip of the same Cherry on Top DSP I used on the front and placed it on the bottom then stamped my greeting in the middle.
Thanks for coming by today to take a look at some of the new goodies that are coming soon! This catalog is such a fun one and there are really some great new stamps to choose from! Continue on the hop to visit Jennifer Frost or if you're hopping backwards you can visit Jen Arkfeld next.
