Delightfully Detailed Suite!

Delight in the Details!

Starting tomorrow, June 1, 2018, you will be able to order out of the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  So today I want to share one of the product suites that will be available and am very excited about.

Get ready to feast your eyes on some gorgeous goodies with this video on our Delightfully Detailed suite. With stamps, a three-in-one punch, ribbon, and more, this suite is a creative paradise.

Check out the video below that showcases many items in this product suite.

What stands out in this suite is the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (146907).  One design is a 12" x 12" pattern; the other design has distinct patterns to cut out and use on the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards (146911) or one of the Vanilla or Whisper White Note Cards that are 5" x 3 1/2" in size.  You could also add a card from the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack (147038) to create a unique card with little effort. 

There are so  many things you can add to the Delightfully Detailed Specialty Paper to make beautiful cards.  Here is a card I made using the oval cut piece and the Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also added a piece of the same paper to the envelope flap to make it stand out.

Delightfully Detailed Card 5-18

Fussy cutting is something that I find relaxing, so I cut some flowers and leafs, from the Garden Impressions 6" x 6" DSP stack (146289) and added them to the front of the card.  Can you tell what new color I used as the base of the card?  It is Shaded Spruce and it's absolutely beautiful.  I can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! will have for Christmas using this new color.

Happy stamping!



More Pictures of the New In Colors!

On May 17th, I shared a picture of the five new In Colors (Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel).

Today, I want to share an additional picture of the beautiful colors along with a couple of cards and a quick and easy project.

All of the new In Colors and new and returning colors in the different collections will be available to you starting on June 1, 2018.

Sitting Pretty Bundle Sneak Peek!

Wrapped Up In Pretty!

Summer is on its way and when I think of the warm sunshine and being outside, I think of relaxing. 
The Sitting Pretty Bundle I'm going to show you today offers several benches to add to your cards to get you in the relaxation mode.

The Sitting Pretty Bundle offers a 16 piece photopolymer stamp set (146615) along with a 10 die framelit set (147825).  However, if you bundle the stamp set and the framelits, you save 10% (Bundle-148337).

This bundle includes two different types of benches and friendly critters perfect for creating a park scene.

The reveal of the new Annual Catalog is coming can start ordering on June 1, 2018.

If you have been a customer of mine and have placed an order, you should receive your new Annual Catalog between now and the end of the month.

If you don't receive an Annual Catalog in the mail, but would like one, just contact me and I can ship one out to you (I only ask that you pay for the shipping).

One last way to get your hands on a catalog is to stop at my BOGO Sale on June 21st between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. or 6:00 and 8:00 p.m.  You can make a card using new product out of the catalog or shop my retired product sale.

Petal Perfection!

A little birdie told me that this gorgeous bundle is carrying over into the new annual catalog!  While the stamp set and coordinating dies are continuing, the paper, unfortunately, is not.

So before it’s too late, I wanted to share a picture of this divine paper.  And remember, the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (#145589) is only available through May 31st or while supplies last.

Add color to these hand painted black and white watercolor designs and let them flourish!
This black and white paper has 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 double-sided designs and is 12" x 12".

The Petal Palette bundle (Wood-145973; Clear-145974) would work for any occasion such as a wedding, thank you, or a versatile.  One last thing, the bundle pricing (save 10% when you bundle) is only available until May 31st also.  After May 31st, the stamp set and thinlits will be sold separately.

Sneak Peek of New Designer Series Paper!

There are 24 gorgeous sheets in this pack, 4 each of 6 double-sided designs that is 12" x 12".

I know you can't see the pearlized finish on the above paper, but you are going to love it.

Last Monday, I shared a video and a couple sample cards made with this paper along with product from the
Share What You Love Suite that includes three bundles.
