In Colors 2015-2017, Catalog and Stamp Sneak Peek

Are you ready for fresh new colors and tools?  The new catalog is beautiful and has so many wonderful new stamp designs.  See all those pages I have flagged?  Lots of great products on my wish list for when orders open on June 2!  Let me know if you want a new catalog.

  Each year we get a new set of "In" colors that are fresh and on trend in fashion and decor.  I used the new stamp set "You've Got This" to display the new colors and a few loved, older colors.  This is Watermelon Wonder with Tip Top Taupe.
Cucumber Crush and Tip Top Taupe.

Delightful Dijon layered with Tip Top Taupe and the flower stamped on Vellum.  Sadly I did not have success with glue dots under my vellum.

Mint Macaron pronounced ("ron" NOT "roon"

And here is Tip Top Taupe with Very Vanilla.

But these, below, are my most favorite designs with the new stamp set.  
Cucumber Crush paper and ribbon.

Delightful Dijon and Tip Top Taupe.

Calypso Coral and Tip Top Taupe.

Tip Top Taupe and Very Vanilla with stunning pearls - LOVE this!

Melon Mambo, Crystal Effects and Tip Top Taupe.

 Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe.

Mint Macaron paper and ribbon.  I used Memento black ink on Vellum.  I love this card design!

Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizazz.

I love using this as an interior sentiment.

Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand, Pear Pizazz are such an elegant combination.

The interior sentiment is stunning with the lace.

What do you think of the new In Colors and "You've Got This" stamp set?  Which card designs are your favorite?  I would love to send you a new catalog - just let me know!

Thank you for your comments and orders!

Crafty in the Mountains

This is my first completed project from my crafty weekend in the mountains.  I used the Boo-tiful Paper Pumpkin kit  and turned the treat bags into a fun banner.

Each burlap treat bag holds a decorative letter to spell "CREATE" with a whimsical butterfly.
The Triple Banner Punch, in the new 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog, is super easy.

Lots of perkiness with Island Indigo combined with Daffodil Delight.  The butterfly, scallop and circle punches make this project a breeze!

Stripes or dots?  They look sweet combined and alternated!

Daydream Medallions

Another sad goodbye to retirement is the elegant stamp set, Daydream Medallions. 

I have rarely combined so many colors. But I think it worked out super well!  The colors used in this project set are: Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, and Soft Suede.  I like mixing the card base colors to create a different emphasis.  The Artisan Label Punch, the "hi" sentiment, is also retiring this month.
