Hi Stampers. It’s HERE, it’s really HERE!!! I am soooo excited to share the new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog with you! I got my copy at Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Las Vegas, NV on April 7th. It has been hard not being able to share it with you all. My customers should have received a copy in the mail by now. (If you didn’t get one – let me know and I’ll pop one in the mail to you).
If you just can’t wait any longer, you can click the graphic above or this link HERE to view a PDF version of the catalog.
As a demo, I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the new products early. One thing I just couldn’t wait to get was the Varied Vases bundle. This is the set that my upline, Mary Fish, got to help design as part of her 1 million dollar in career sales celebration.
This card starts with a Basic Black card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, followed by a Real Red layer 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. This was followed by a Whisper White Layer 3 3/4″ x 5″. I stamped the sentiment toward the bottom of the WW layer in Memento Black ink. I then added a Real Red strip of CS 3 3/4″ x 1″, with a Basic Black strip of CS 3 3/4″ x 1/2″ over that.
The focal point was created by cutting a large scalloped oval using the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies in Basic Black CS and a Whisper White oval cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. I used the Vases Builder Punch to punch the vase out of Basic Gray CS, the leaves out of Garden Green CS and the tulips out of Real Red CS scraps. (There was a stem stamp you could use, but I created the stems using a Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker).
To me a card isn’t “finished” until I stamp a little something on the inside. The interior of the card has a Whisper White layer 3 3/4″ x 5″. I stamped the vase in Basic Gray ink. The stem was stamped in Smokey Slate ink and the flowers and shelf in Real Red ink.
This bundle made this card so easy to make! I just love the clean and simple design, I hope you do too! Any of these items can now be purchased in my online store using the links below.
