I'm so excited for today. Its the launch of the brand new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog 2016-2017. I've been eagerly awaiting this day, so that (1) I can put my extended order in and (2) I can share it with you!!
If you don't have a catalog in your hands by now, let me know and I can get one out to you. (If you don't already have a demonstrator of you own ;) Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can view the catalog right now, but clicking on the link in my side bar. You are going to want to have this beautiful book. .. over 450 gorgeous samples alone!
I am so happy to get to share more new products with you. Today, I chose the new "Pineapple" stamp set. Why, you ask? Well, because my new blog design is.. Pineapples! I did share a pink pineapple a week or so ago, and today, I went for a more natural look.
I also used the "Thoughtful Banners" stamp set and coordinating "Duet Banner" Punch, along with the little pineapple from the "Pop of Paradise" stamp set.
I love the fresh vibrant colors on this card. Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green and Delighful Dijon all used to make it look like a real live pineapple!
I also used the new cucumber crush thick bakers twine to finish off the textured look of this card. I'm really loving this new twine and all the possibilities. Its so easy to work with as well.
Here's a quick tip: I inked the pineapple in daffodil delight and cucumber crush, then used a sponge dauber in delightful dijon to shade the bottom of the pineapple and one in garden green to shade the crown of the pineapple. I love the dimension that it adds to the image.
I look forward to sharing lots and lots of new stamps and accessories with you in the upcoming days, weeks and months.
The New Stampin Up Annual Catalog is "off the charts" AMAZING! So, come back again soon to see whats new!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
