Fresh Prints & Watercolor Wonder

With the Occasions Catalog ending tomorrow June 1st I thought I would share some cards that use the wonderful Designer Series Paper that you’ll find inside its pages.

These first two cards use the same basic colors and the Designer Series Paper Stack, Fresh Prints (132996). but are totally different looks. Our stacks are great for card making since they contain lots of different patterns that are 41/2″ x 6″, just right for a card front.

Perfectly Penned

I love the paper peeking out from the tag, don’t you? Punches are great to create negative space, here the Petite Petals Punch (133322) was used along with the Bitty Butterfly Punch (129406). And who doesn’t love the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (133324)? There are so many fun ways to use it. Can you see the texture in the Real Red background? If you guessed our Arrows Embossing Folder (132187) from the Occasions Catalog you are right!

I love bundles and this next card uses two of our bundles, Flower Shop (132727/132726) and the Petite Petals Bundle (134821/134822). Coordinating punches just make things sooo quick and simple!

Petite Petals

The sentiment is from the single stamp Vivid Vases (133818) that you can find in the Occasions Catalog.

Watercolor Wonder meets Peaceful Petals

This card was given to me by one of my Team members, JoAnn. I love the color combinations found in the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (132994) they are so soft and subtle.

Peaceful Petals

JoAnn used the Peaceful Petals stamp set (133104/133107) added some texture with the Stampin’ Distress Tool (127562) and a little touch of shine when she used a few sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim (132983). So simple but a lovely card anyone would enjoy getting.

Peaceful Petals – Leadership Shoebox Swap

Today’s project is the second of my Swaps that I designed for last Wednesday’s Shoebox Swap at Leadership in Houston. I really liked the way this turned out and although I had originally planned on using Core’dinations Card Stock for the Scallops embossed layer I like the way this looked too. (If you haven’t tried our Core’dinations paper yet – check out this week’s Deal of the Week you’ll find our Neutrals collection.)

Peaceful Petals Leadership 2014

The ovals were from my Christmas Cards and since I had about 75 of these lying around and I figured it would be a great way to use them up. I don’t know about you but I tend not to throw anything away since I might find a use for them and have tried really hard this year to not have anything sit around for too long. My husband is already questioning all those left over rubber pieces, tag board from the DSP, and toilet paper rolls in my craft room – LOL.

The Peaceful Petals stamp set from the Occasions Catalog comes with some lovely line images that are great for water coloring. It also contains a couple of sentiments, which makes it a wonderful set to choose when you’re a newer stamper, since it can be used for all occasion cards and thank yous – something I’m always in need of, how about you?

Leadership Bags

One of the great things about Leadership or any Stampin’ Up! event is they way they pamper their Demonstrators. So I was so tickled this year when I checked in and receive my first Leadership bag made in our new color, Smoky Slate – and it’s stamped with a trendy chevron design. (I’m not sure that you can see the chevron design well in the picture.)

And how cool is the inside – stylish and lined beautifully with our Arrows pattern from the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Ocassions Catalog. Even the event is noted on the tag so I can always remember when I got the bag years from now.

Peaceful Petals

Yesterday I held my Occasions Catalog Bash here in my Clarkesville studio – those that came out and braved the cold, foggy weather had a good time stamping together and checking out all the new goodies that are available in the New Occasions Catalog.

Peaceful Petals Occasions Catalog Bash

Today’s card is from the event. Everyone got to stamp a card and try out the new products. I’ve got to tell you that the NEW Scallop Tag Topper Punch was a big a hit with everyone! You’re going to love it when you use it and it’s so great because you can make your tags any length you’d like too – whoo hoo!

Here are some pictures from yesterdays event – everyone seemed to enjoy water coloring their images.
