So excited the gorgeous new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue starts today - so many beautiful things in it!
As a demonstrator I got to preorder a few items to play with, and also was able to redeem some new items through last years awards and achievements - gotta love FREE stuff!!
Two of the stamp sets I received for free are Traveler and Work of Art. They only arrived just over a week ago so I haven't had much time to play with them yet, but I did find some really inspiring ideas on line to help me whip up a couple of cards really quickly so I'd have something to show you!
Two of these ideas for Traveler cards came from Deb Valder in NY. She obviously loves this stamp set too!
I started making pretty rainbow cards with Work of Art stamp set - actually I got carried away and made about 10, but I have finished them yet - they need a greeting stamp and maybe some other embellishments - this is what they look like so far LOL!
Then I caught up with some of my team for some casual stamping and we had a special guest who had been using the Work of Art Stamp set a bit more than me, so I "borrowed" some of her ideas to remind myself how versatile this stamp set is - love these! Oh, but by the way - they are not finished yet either - and nowhere near as good as the ones Michelle Corbett showed us - but I just couldn't resist giving you a sneak peak!
The Annual Catalogue sells for $7.00 plus postage of $5.95. If you are like me, you probably find it much easier to flick through a hard copy catalogue, mark the pages of stamp sets you already have or on your wish list, stick sticky notes everywhere, and have it with you as a great reference when sitting down to create a few cards.
I know I find that much easier than trying to read anything online! If you are an Australian resident and would like to order a hardcopy of the catalogue for yourself, you can do so here. Or you may email me firstname.lastname@example.org with your details to order one for you.
Anyone ordering a hard copy catalogue from my store in July will receive a gift voucher for free postage on your next order from me. So what are you waiting for - order your hard copy catalogue today!
Got crafting to do! See you soon with ink on your fingers!
