Our new catalog is just filled will all sorts of fun new stuff!  Yesterday I was able to pre-order some items out of the new catalog (yet another benefit of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!).  While those haven’t arrived – yet, they will be here in a few short days.  Stampin’ Up! was so ready for this that orders were shipping out the same day they were made!  How cool is that?!?

Those of us that attended the catalog premiere were given a stamp set for free!  So, I was able to start stamping right away.

This set is so easy to work with.  There is just no way to do it wrong!  I wanted the focus to be on the stamp set, so I did a Whisper White card base and then another layer of Whisper White adhered with dimensionals.  I used Crisp Cantaloup, Pear Pizzaz and Pool party for the “swooshs” – is that a word?  The hearts were done with Blushing Bride.  The saying is stamped with Black Staz On. It could have been done at that point, but I couldn’t resist a little bling and added the Petite Petal flower and rhinestone.

Here is the set we were given (did I mention it was FREE??? *grin*)  We were given the wood mounted set.  Most of the sets I own are clear mount – but it’s good to have options to show my customers and I can’t argue with free!

I can see many possibilities with this set now that I’ve had a chance to play with it.  Do you wanna play with it to?  Shoot me an email and we will set something up – a workshop, a class or just a fun play day.  I love any excuse to stamp!

Don’t forget to order those retiring items in my store before they are gone!  They have also added a bunch of items to the clearance rack – check that out while you are there!
