Wahoo! The new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is Here!

The fabulous new catty has arrived and it’s wonderful. Some old favourites return and loads of fun new products as well.

The new In Colours are simply gorgeous and I am just completely in love with the new cotton paper. It makes the most adorable flowers that hold their shape and are so, so quick and easy to make 🙂

Isn’t it absolutely fabulous that the new 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! ® Annual Catalogue is here!? How gorgeous are the new products (and of course those that have carried over)!

I have made a couple of items for your viewing pleasure today that I’ve been wanting to try out for a while and used this Blog Hop as an excuse to do so.

IMG_3264My first item is what’s being called a “Screen Card” in the land of Pinterest and the internet. I created this using our fabulous new Blendabilities (I’m soooo in love with these), remember when you use Blendabilities you need to use a Momento Ink Pad.

Stamp Sets: Work of Art and In This Together
Ink: The gorgeous new 2014-2016 In Colours
Card Stock: The gorgeous new 2014-2016 In Colours and Whisper White
Punches: Scallop Edge Border Punch and the little legs were made using the Decorative Label Punch
Other: Crystal Effects (used on one heart in each section)

IMG_3259These little gift tags were made to thank my Catty Launch guests for coming. I am loving the versatility of the new Kinda Eclectic stamp set.

Stamp Sets: Kinda Eclectic and Amazing Birthday
Ink: The gorgeous new 2014-2016 In Colours
Card Stock: The gorgeous new 2014-2016 In Colours and Whisper White
Ribbon: 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in the 2014-2016 In Colours
Punch: Scalloped Tag Topper

IMG_3237

IMG_3238I was so excited to see the Thinlits Dies (both Circle Card and Label Card) come into this Catalogue!

This card was made from an idea I got from Pinterest (sometimes I’d be lost with out the inspiration it gives me 😉

Stamp Sets: Petite Petals, Amazing Birthday and Petite Pairs
Ink: Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Smokey Slate
Card Stock: Hello Honey, Smokey Slate, Tangelo Twist and Whisper White
DSP: Lullaby
Punches: Petite Petals, 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
Other: Circle Card Thinlits Die, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and Pearl Basic Jewels

IMG_3270My next project for this hop, I really wanted to showcase the stunning new Blackberry Bliss Card Stock!

Stamp Sets: Amazing Birthday
Ink: The gorgeous new 2014-2016 In Colours
Card Stock: Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White
Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
Other: Clear Embossing Powder (used on the Amazing and bottom row of Tangelo Twist dots), Pearl Basic Jewels, Chevron Thinlit from the Circle Card Thinlits Die

Of course it wouldn’t be me without showing a 3D project, my cute little EPB tapered edge box. This is actually a pretty good size and will fit at least 3 Ferrero Rocher choccies – yummo!

IMG_3271Card Stock: Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss
Embosslits: Beautiful Wings
DSP: Lullaby
Other: Envelope Punch Board and Dimensionals

Fabulous New Products!

There are some products you just have to see in action before you realise how much you need them, right? This is one of them! Once you see what these can do, you will want to make sure you have at least one of the shapes!

These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)

With the number of dies you’re getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!
