Hues of Happiness Suite

The Hues of Happiness Suite, one of the new collections in the Annual Catalog, is one of my favorites.  I love not only the stamp set and dies, but the Designer Series Paper and embellishments will make any of your cards created with this suite, beautiful!  I thought to myself, do I really need more flowers, but after watching this video, and seeing so many beautiful samples of cards I decided to purchase it, and I'm glad I did.  You can watch this video, made by Stampin' Up! and see all of the beautiful creations yourself.

Tulip Fields

 The Tulip Fields Stamp Set and coordinating Windmill Field Dies are retiring at the end of June.  I was really hoping they would carry over into the new Annual Catalog, but since they didn't, I want to make sure I have them available at this month's stamp class.  There is still time to purchase them, and remember, purchase them both together and you save 10%.

I stamped my flowers, which were really easy to do with the way the stamps are designed, using the following colors - Highland Heather, Mango Melody, and Sweet Sorbet.  The tree was stamped in Garden Green.  I punched the windmill out easily with the dies, and the blades actually spin when you place them on using a brad.  The sentiment is from the Paradies Palms Stamp Set, and this was placed onto a layer of Highland Heather Card Stock and then adhered to my Whisper White Base.

Sun Prints Suite - Video by Stampin' Up!

The Sun Prints Suite is one of my favorites in the new Annual Catalog.  The stamps, dies, paper, and embossing folder will help you create many beautiful cards for many different occasions.  I will post some of my own creations next week, but for now, I hope you enjoy watching the video and are inspired to create your own beautiful projects.

Bottled Happiness

The Bottled Happiness Stamp Set and coordinating Vintage Bottle Punch can be purchased together in a bundle to save you 10%.  It is just one of the many new products in the Annual Catalog.

My card base is Petal Pink card stock that I layered with a soon to be retiring piece of Heart & Home Designer Series Paper.  The mini catalog runs until June 30th, and if the products are not carrying over into the new Annual Catalog they are now while supplies last.

To create my layer, I took a small piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock and stamped the Stacked Stone in Early Espresso Ink.  Next I punched my Vintage Bottle through my Whisper White Card Stock layer.  I added some Effervescent Elements to my bottle before I adhered it to another piece of Whisper White Card Stock that is behind it.  My flowers are stamped in Peta Pink and Pearl Pizzaz ink and I also added some Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels to some of the flowers.

To finish my card I stamped my sentiment from the Days to Remember Stamp Set, tied it onto my bottle with Linen Thread and adhered it to the card using glue dots and dimensionals.

You can see all of these items at my Online Store, and if you do not have an existing relationship with another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator you can leave a comment below, or e-mail me, and I will be happy to send a catalog to you.
