I placed an order from the new Stampin’ Up!® 2023/2024 Annual Catalog on May 2nd. I have to admit I did expedite the order because Stampin’ Up!® has had so many awesome deals (discounts on retiring things and a free shipping day) so receiving an order has taken a long time. Although, I did get my order, I have not been able to play with it yet. I spent last week taking care of some of my grandchildren while their parents were away and immediately after that I went to see my other son’s family in Alabama. All that pretty stuff I got has been sitting there untouched and unloved. Hopefully this week, I will be able to show you some creations using the new (amazing) products.
In the meantime, I did make a card using some of the new Designer Series Paper I was able to order in April. It is gorgeous paper using lots of blue including Balmy Blue, Boho Blue, Misty Moonlight and Night Of Navy. It is called Countryside Inn and is part of the Countryside Inn Suite Collection.
To make this card, I first cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of this DSP and layered it on a Boho Blue card base. Next, I used the Scalloped Contours dies with Basic White card stock and layered it on top. I stamped the flowers from the Petal Park stamp set in Night Of Navy and Boho Blue ink. This stamp set is a two-step set where it takes two or more stamps to make one image. In this case the outline of the flowers is one stamp and the inside is another. I punched the flowers out using the coordinating Petal Park Punch. Next I took the two leaves stamps (one for the inside of the leaves and one for the outside) and stamped them in Old Olive. Then, I layered the flowers on top using Dimensionals. I used the stamp set called Artistically Inked to stamp the sentiment in Night Of Navy ink and cut it out using a die from Stylish Shapes. Lastly, I added some Decorative Matter Dots.
Let’s hope I can find time later this week to play with my new products. I can’t wait!
