Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog Has Arrived

It's finally here, and it is a work of art. Stampin' Up! continues to amaze me with their beautiful images, excellent creativity and superb quality. Grab a big cup of coffee or large glass of ice tea, click on the catalog to your right, and wander through the 200+ pages of this great new catalog. You can do this online or email me to get a catalog of your very own.

Friends Never Fade--Sneak Peak

Here is another post using one of the countless new stamp sets Stampin' Up! is featuring in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog which will be availble tomorrow. This set is called Friends Never Fade. It is a set of four images for $13.95 (clear mount) or 17.95 (wood mount). The decorative paper includes some of the new colors--Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Baja Breeze. To make this card, you will cut card stock using the following dimensions: Pear Pizzazz (5 1/4" by 4 1/4") Whisper White (4" by 10 1/2"--fold in half and then fold the front back to meet the first fold line), Chocolate Chip (2 3/8" by 3 3/4") Greenhouse Gala DSP (2 1/8" by 3 1/2") Pumpkin Pie (1 7/8" by 3") Whisper White (2" by 2 1/2"--stamp the image and then trim around the border). The vertical lines on the right side of the card are just pieces of card stock cut 1/2" by 4". This fold can be used with so many different stamp sets. Stop back tomorrow to see the new catalog! Enjoy.

Because I Care--Sneak Peak

The 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog is set to debut on July 1. I do have a copy of the catalog, and it is full of wonderful new stamping images, beautiful decorative papers and accessories along with some great new colors. This card is stamped with one of the new Level One hostess sets called Because I Care. This hydrangea is so beautiful and offers endless opportunities for watercoloring and a dimensional look. I'll be posting some other samples with this set in the days ahead.
