I had the other launch day yesterday for the new catalogue. We all had a great time I think. We were so busy though that I forgot to take a photo of them. (I’m sure they would be very disappointed to know that!) I can now show you what we did. We used the new Fresh Cuts set. There are so many ways you can use this set. Firstly, we made a triangle box. You can see how to make them here. Here is the one we did.
There were a few different colour combinations, but for this one I used Regal Rose and Certain Celery. These boxes are so quick to make and the good thing is there is no glueing. Before assembling I stamped off the leaf image over the card stock with Regal Rose. I punched holes in the top using the crop-a-dile and threaded through the Regal Rose ribbon. For the scallop tag I inked up the the leaf image again with Certain Celery and stamped it off first onto scrap paper to lighten it a little. I stamped it onto Whisper White. The ‘For You’ words run across, so I used the Regal Rose marker on the ‘for’ and stamped it over the leaf. Then used the marker again to ink the ‘you’. I then stamped that under the ‘for’. I punched this out using the 1 1/4″ circle punch and punched out a circle from regal rose with the 1 3/8″ circle punch. I adhered them together and then adhered this to a scallop circle punch from the Certain Celery. I mounted this onto the box with dimensionals. These would be great little boxes for Easter or for Mother’s Day very soon.
We then used the Fresh Cuts to make a card.
This is the mirror technique. Firstly, I stamped the leaf image up the side of Chocolate Chip cardstock base. I stamped the main image with Chocolate Chip onto Baja Breeze and also onto Pink Pirouette, 2 of the new in-colours. I love these 2 colours together. I cut one in half and adhered it to the other half. I then adhered this to Pumpkin Pie and then to the base card. I stamped the words onto Pink Pirouette with Chocolate Chip and adhered this to Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the flower and then cut it out and mounted it onto the card with dimensionals.
So the new Stampin’ Up! year has begun. If you would like a catalogue contact me and I can send it to you. The cost is $12.95 plus shipping and handling. You can receive one FREE for holding a workshop. If you live locally, invite a few friends together and I can show you a few projects and you all get to stamp. If you live too far away, or are just too busy, why not have a catalogue workshop. I can send you a catalogue, you can pass it around to friends and family and collect their orders. For orders over $300 you can still receive the hostess benefits. Also, any orders over $50 qualifies for my VIS club. See the page at the top for details.
Email me for any further questions on these projects or anything else.
