(All of our projects will be live no later than Wednesday morning.. if you are joining me Tuesday night, you may need to check back tomorrow if all links are not quite working yet.)
It's that EXCITING time of year when we get to WELCOME NEW Stampin' Up! sets and accessories.. our blog tour today will showcase NEW CATALOG CREATIONS from Stampin' Up!.
My first sample features one of my very favorite new sets called Blooming with Kindness. You'll find this beautiful flower (with awesome greetings) on pg 87 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog.
Blooming with Kindness, pg 87, Wood: 126420/ Clear: 126422
I die cut one of the shapes from the Apothecary Accents Framelits package, then stamped the flower with Primrose Petals & Raspberry Ripple (rock n roll technique), and then used the AMAZING NEW Essentials Paper-Piercing pack (pg 181, #126187) with the new Stampin' Pierce mat and new Paper-Piercing tool (both on pg 181) to achieve the fun accent around the die cut. I also used TWO embossing folders: Delicate Designs on the LEFT side of the card (pg 188, #127023) and the new Fancy Fan folder on the right side of the card (pg 189, #127751). I used a strip and also punched out an accent from the new pack of Floral District DSP (pg 163, #126919) and finished off with a Vintage brad and some new 1/4" stitched white ribbon (pg 173, #126877).
My 2nd project featuring NEW STAMPIN' UP! PRODUCTS
features cute Old Olive Polkadot fabric from the
Essentials Designer Fabric package on pg 170, item #126892,
and the FABULOUS new Daydream Medallions stamp set
on pg 117, #126465/126467.
Who wouldn't want to receive this pretty little box for their birthday?
I used the torn fabric strip to tie around the white box, and then added the birthday tag.
The MEDALLION TAG is stamped with Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, and Daffodil Delight ink. Each layer is die cut with the coordinating FLORAL FRAMES FRAMELITS (pg 191, #127012) and the Big Shot. The blue heart layer is Designer paper from the FLORAL DISTRICT pack and a DELICATE DOILY SIZZLIT (pg 191, #126999). The green center is punched from the INTERNATIONAL BAZAAR pack of DSP, pg 164, #126920. it's topped off with a Vintage Brad.
The frilly birthday greeting stamp is a single stamp found on pg 44, #125562, and it's die cut with the Floral Frames Framelits and layered onto a punched out flower from Besty's Blossoms.
