Stampin' Up - Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

 Hello Everyone,
Tonight, I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue, which is available 1st June.

Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

I would like to show you 3 different projects using products from the Delightful Daisy Suite and how you can incorporate other stamps you may have into your creations.

In this first card, I have used the new Daisy punch to make the gorgeous white daisies. Punch out 2 daisies and layer, then stamp the centre with crushed curry. Curling up the petals on the flower really gives some dimension. The background paper is not your normal Designer series paper, for this I have used one of our new products for memory keeping called Memories and More. This card comes from the Memories and More Colour Theory Card Pack. You can use them for card making as well as memory keeping. So versatile! You are going to love them!

 I have stamped some daisy images in crushed curry on the background as well as whisper white card stock and fussy cut them out. Can you see the wink of Stella on these daisies and in the centre of the big daisies? The beautiful new Double Stitched Ribbon has crosses on 1 side and dashes on the other. 

The sentiment also has a corresponding text for the center of your cards from the new stamp set Special Celebrations and the sentiment is punched out using the new Pretty Label punch

This second card uses the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  I used it for a male birthday card. I think the beautiful tones in the paper work perfectly for a male card, Who says daisies are just for girls?! It is so great that our DSP has patterns on both sides, there is so much to choose from in just one packet. Again I have used the Happy Birthday stamp from the new stamp set Special Celebrations and the matching sentiment on the inside of the card. Check out the product list below for the other products I used on this card.

Tranquil Tide, Whisper White, Copper Foil

For my third sneak peek for you at what is coming up in the new Annual Catalogue, I have a thank you card made with the products from the Delightful Daisy Suite. I have used the DSP down the side and the daisy stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set I have made it into a gerbera. The thank you  from the Daisy Delight stamp set I have stamped in the new in-colour Fresh Fig

One of the great things about Stampin’ Up is the co-ordinating card stock and ink and I have used fresh fig card stock to co-ordinate with the ink I have used on the sentiment and tranquil tide card stock behind the gerbera to co-ordinate with the DSP down the side. Check out the product list to see what else I have used to create this card.

Your cards are all beautiful Sharon, your first card feels like you could just step into the garden it's so pretty. I also love how you put a male spin on your second card and the colours go so well in your 3rd card.

Great cards. Love that 18 card.

The embossed foil card looks so striking and DSP is a great choice. Funny how we can be so quick to dismiss sets of DSP as too feminine. Thanks for sharing how versatile sets can be
