Artsy New Goodies From Stampin' Up!

Every now and then I get asked to make some samples for my Stampin' Up! demonstrator- and of course I always say yes!  I love playing with new goodies!  She popped by with some of the new products from the upcoming Celebrate the Everyday Catalog and I got right to work.  Here are the cards I made:

Happy Flowers Card 1

This first one features the beautiful Happy Watercolor stamp set along with the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, and Watercolor Wonder DSP.  They are all gorgeous- seriously!  The flowers, paint splotch, and sentiment have been stamped on Whisper White cardstock that I die-cut into an oval.  The flowers were watercolored with residual inks.  I've added a little splatter with a Cameo Coral reinker mixed with water and a few gold sequins, also new in the catalog

Aren't the touches of gold pretty?  I wish I had the gold baker's twine to do my bow with, too!

The second showcases the new Ampersand embossing folder along with the Watercolor Wonder washi tape, Gold Sequin Trim, and Watercolor Wonder DSP.  I can't get enough of that DSP!!

Ampersand Card 1

I love this embossing folder!  The large ampersand is so cool!  I've embossed my card front and then sanded over it a little so it would stand out a bit more on the dsp.  Next, I added two of the new gold washi tapes to the bottom of the card along with a big of the pretty gold sequin trim.  I stamped my sentiment (from the Happy Watercolor set) onto vellum and die-cut it using one of the Chalk Talk dies.  Lastly, I embellished it with a pretty button and a splatter of shimmer spray.

I loved the look of this paper in the book and it doesn't disappoint!  The full watercolor sheets are my favorite!

One more card- this one is clean and simple:

Cantaloupe Thank You Card 1

I started with a card base of Crisp Cantaloupe.  I then stamped the watercolor polka-dots (from the Happy Watercolor set) along the bottom with matching ink.  I added just a strip of the multicolored chevron print.  Next, I stamped and embossed the sentiment (from the Another Thank You set) and then I added a few sequins for accent.

The colors in the Watercolor Wonder suite were so fresh and fun to play with!  I really enjoyed the new goodies and I can't wait until January to order!  I am loving so much out of the mini!!

Well, hope you are having a great day!
