How stunning is today's lovely Spring weather for Father's Day? Just beautiful! We enjoyed a delicious brunch with Tony's five (mostly grown up) children and his dad at the very cosmopolitan George's cafe in Croydon. Very pleasant!
But now it's back on with normal weekend activities, and for me, that includes getting inspired and sharing some inspiration from the lovely new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which went live yesterday. I adore the new catalogue (don't you hear that from me every year!!!) and am very happy to share something bright and "spring inspired" with you today.
This card is made with all new products and colours.
The six piece stamp set is called Blooming with Kindess and is on page 87 of the new catalogue. It retails for $39.95 (woodblock) or $31.95 (clear mount). I received this stamp set as a gift at our Manager's Reception in May and have been dying to show it to you!
The colours on this card include two of the new In Colours - Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse. I am very much in love with this colour combination, and the three other new In Colours, and have loved trying them out with the new Classic Ink Pad format. If you're browsing the catalogue on line, you'll find all the In Colour range on page 152.
The third new product on this card is the Designer Deries Paper. This one is from the pack, Comfort Cafe. This year our DSP's are all gorgeous and I can't wait to start trying dozens of new projects inspired by the amazing colours and designs!
I love making my own "paper ribbon" by scrunching up a strip of the DSP - the colour & pattern do look a bit like old woven fabric, and I love this effect!
Have you got your calendar handy? I'm having my New Catalogue Launch Party on Saturday 22nd of September at Wyreena Community Arts Centre in Croydon. It's going to be a very colourful and inspiring event. I'd love to see you there! Please RSVP to 0418 361 931 or [email protected]
For those of you who regularly visit my Stampin' Up! demonstrator website, please be aware I have now changed to my married name, so if you have www.kathrynlowe.stampinup.net saved in your favourites, you'll need to change it to www.kathrynruddick.stampinup.net if you want to find me :o)
Hope you're enjoying the lovely sunshine, I'm off to make a couple of cards! See you soon!
