Floral Essence

The Floral Essence Stamp Set coordinates with the Perennial Flower Punch and can be purchased in a bundle to save you 10%.  In addition, the leaf in the stamp set coordinates with the Leaf Punch that is a carry over punch from the last Annual Catalog, and I used it today for my card.  It isn't noted in the catalog, so just wanted to point that out in case you purchased the set.

 I didn't use the Perennial Flower Punch for my card below, but when you do use it, you just stamp two of the flowers in the stamp set and put them together to make one larger flower.

Bundle includes

- Magnolia Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set—6 stamps

- Clear Block D

Above the Clouds

Another fun new bundle in the annual catalog is called Above the Clouds.  It comes with a 19 piece photopolymer stamp set and matching Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I love when new punches are introduced in the catalog, since they are easy to transport to a class, or take with you if you want to stamp away from home.  No cutting machine needed, just a little bit of creativity.

I paired this bundle up with a piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, since I thought the birds flying in the background went well with my hot air balloons.  I stamped the balloons using Memento Black Ink, and colored them in using my Stampin' Blends.  I attached them onto my Whisper White layer using dimensionals,  and added my sentiment to finish the card.

Free as a Bird

Another cute suite in the new catalog is the Bird Ballad Suite.  It comes with the Free as a Bird stamp set and Stitched Nested Labels Dies that can be purchased together in a bundle to save you 10%.  In addition you can add the coordinating designer series paper, scalloped lace trim, bird ballad trinkets, and bird ballad laser cut cards and tins with just one number to get it all.  In the suite the stamp set and dies are already discounted and this is just a really easy way to order all of the coordinating products together. You can see all of these products on page 91 of the Annual Catalog. 

I used coordinating card stock of Pool Party and Old Olive, and a sheet of the designer series paper for my layers and card base.  I tied on a piece of the lace trim and then added my stamped images and die cut pieces.  I colored the bird using Pool Party, Petal Pink, and Crumb Cake blends, and placed the layers onto my card using Dimensionals.

Another Sailing Home Card

Can you tell that I really like the Sailing Home Bundle.  I love it for not only masculine cards, but I think it is also great for graduation, thank you, retirement, and birthday cards.  The Designer Series Paper that coordinates with the suite makes for a nice layer and in addition to the products I used for this card the suite also comes with a 3D Embossing Folder, a Memories & More Card Pack, Night of Navy Baker's Twine, and some really cute Sail Away Trinkets.

All of these products can be seen on page 145 of the Annual Catalog.
