Good Morning! It is a super exciting time for Stampin' Up! demonstrators and customers. THIS IS THE DAY. New catalog ordering capabilities should be up and running by noon mountain time. Just look at the cover! (click on it and it will take you to the pdf version of the catalog).
The samples below were made using the Varied Vases Bundle, available in the new catalog. It is a darling stamp set with matching punch that punches out the vase shapes and a few other pieces from the set. There are more than a few reasons I knew I needed this set. Besides being amazing, this set is honoring my upline Mary Fish for reaching $1,000,000 in sales with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that reach that milestone, get to have a stamp set made in their honor and they even help design it! How cool is that?
For both cards below, I die cut a "frame" using the largest 2 squares from the Stitched Framelits dies. I only cut one frame, then snipped at the corners to create the little "shelf".
I stamped the vase with Bermuda Bay and Tuxedo Black Memento ink, punched it out and popped it up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
For the card below, I simply cut a vase from a piece of one of my left over acrylic abstracts I had painted on watercolor paper. (I dabble in several types of art) This could just as easily be done with our designer series paper.
The samples below don't get any easier! I positioned all of the flower stamps on the clear block at once, then stamped the flowers with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I punched all of the vases out for the first card from of some of my scrap acrylic abstracts and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals. The second card was some left over watercolor paper that I had "smooshed" inks on. I think these would be great cards to have on hand, stamping the inside sentiment as you needed them.
Look at all you get in the bundle!
