It is so exciting when a new catalogue is about to be released! Stampin’ Up! lets demonstrators pre-order from a new catalogue about 3 weeks early. This year we also got to earn Sale-A-Bration items early too! Sooo, my pre-order arrived this week and I have started to play with my new goodies.
One of the stamp sets that really caught my eye was Happy Watercolour. This is an 8 piece stamp set and includes two lovely flowers but it also includes some cool stamps so that you can create a watercolour effect on your projects. So this is my first share using this stamp set.
This card was created using the sketch challenge at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. I embossed Tangerine Tango card using the fabulous Arrow Embossing Folder (new Occasions Catalogue) and attached it to scored and folded Sahara Sand card. I attached a piece of Watercolour Wonder Designer Series Paper (new Occasions Catalogue) to Sahara Sand card and then to the card front. I stamped the large “splotch” image from the Happy Watercolour stamp set (occasions Catalogue) onto Whisper White card using Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight. I stamped the flower image over the top using Stazon Jet Black ink. The image panel is attached to Sahara Sand card and then to the card front. I stamped the greeting from the Happy Watercolour stamp set onto Whisper White card using Tangerine Tango ink and cut a “v” shape in one end. I attached the Whisper White card to Sahara Sand card and then to the card front using a dimensional under the “v” shaped end and Snail on the other end so that I could lay it on top of the image panel. To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the splotch image using Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card. The flower image is stamped over the top using Stazon Jet Black ink and then attached to the inside of the card.
Well, what do you think? I’m sure you will love this set as much as me. If you don’t have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator then please contact me so that I can arrange for you to receive both the Occasions and the Sale-A-Bration catalogues.
I am going to have a lot of fun playing with this stamp set and hope to be back with more samples soon.
Bye for now,
