Swirly Bird Love -Stampin' Up! New Annual Catalog
One Final Look at These cute cards...& Last Day to Buy Retiring Products!

My "Fresh Fruit" Samples from The Stampin' Up! On Stage Convention

Soon the New Stampin' Up! Annual catalog will go live- June 1st, to be exact. I can hardly wait. There are so many stamps and new accessories that I can't wait to get my hands on!

It's true that as demonstrators we do get to pre order "some" of the products. Of course I took full advantage of that so that I'm able to have new products ready for my June classes, workshops and events.

I was also blessed to be asked to do a presentation and demonstration at the On Stage Convention. So, that meant that I received some products to play with, well in advance, so that I could demonstrate with them.

One of the awesome sets that I received is the Fresh Fruits stamp set. I fell totally in love with this set right off of the bat.

I made several samples for my demonstration and for the display boards at convention.

I'm going to share of few of the cards with you today.

This is the display board from On Stage:


The cards that I am sharing today are quick, easy, fun, happy cards that can be whipped up in no time at all. I stamped all of these images on watercolor paper. I think it gives the fruit a cool textured look.

The first one is the peaches from the Fresh Fruit stamp set- available June 1st.








I used the masking technique on all of these cards. I punched the

1 3/8" circle punch and decorative label punch out of a post it note and stuck it to the cardstock. I then stamped over and all around it. Once I was finished stamping, I removed the post it note. It then left a empty space in the shape of the circle or decorative label punch, where I was able to stamp the greeting. I also used a strip of  3/4" wide, computer paper as a mask on the pear, strawberry and flower cards.

Here's another flower card, just for fun.


All of these images and greetings are included in the Fresh Fruit stamp set. I can't list the supplies below as I normally do, because the lists for the new products aren't available until June 1st. I guarantee, you are going to want to add thd Fresh Fruit set to your wish list - its a must have- and it works wonderfully with our new "In Colors"!

There are a few other cards, that I designed with this set, that you may have noticed in the display board photo. I will share those with you as well, another time.  I have a cool technique that I "made up", that I want to share with you called the "orange peel" technique.  That's what I call it. Anyway, be sure to check back soon so see it!

Until the next time..

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
