So, who’s excited for the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, which is unleashed unto the world on June 3?? Me! Me! There is so much to love in the new catalogue. Lots of beautiful new products, and plenty of favourites that are sticking around as well. Every year I think SU! can’t get any better, but they manage to.
This week the CTC crew are restricting ourselves to the cover of the new catty, as that is all we can show you until later this week. I’m really looking forward to seeing the crew’s creativity rise to this challenge – there’s plenty to CASE just on the cover if you really look at it and think outside the box (cover?).
For my projects I have taken my inspiration from the card and envelope at the bottom of the front cover trio. I love a matching card and envelope, and I particularly like the way this duo has the mirrored stamping – bottom of the card, top of the envelope. I took these and some other elements and created these two cards, featuring the stunning new Jar Of Flowers stamp set.
My first card also CASES the colour combination from the cover example – the stamping is in Soft Sea Foam, Mango Melody, and Soft Suede. I used my Stamparatus to be able to ink up the centre of the sunflowers in Soft Suede – I love the way this looks when you do this. And can we talk about those sunflowers? Absolutely beautiful. You’ll be seeing a lot of sunflowers with this new catty release as there are a couple of gorgeous sets that feature them.
I finished off the card with some Linen Thread, and a sentiment from Beautiful Moments stamped in Mint Macaron ink on MM cardstock, and cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
For the envelope I stamped the bottom of the jars onto the flap in Soft Sea Foam ink and the branches in Soft Suede. Again I stamped the sunflowers onto the front of the envelope with two colours. I really do love a matching envelope.
I was so pleased with how this card and envelope turned out I decided to do another one in a different colour scheme. This time I have used Seaside Spray ink for the jars, then stamped the floral spray in Memento Black so I could colour the image with Stampin’ Blends.
The card is again finished off with linen thread and a sentiment from Beautiful Moments, stamped onto Misty Moonlight cardstock and cut with the same die from the Stitched So Sweetly set, which I was so pleased to see carry over into the new catalogue.
I know I’m going to get a heap of heap of use from this beautiful set. Bring on the new catty!! Woohoo!
We hope that you are as excited as we are about the upcmoing catalogue and find some time this week to join in the challenge by sharing your CASE with us over on our Facebook page.
