I am so glad to see you today…happy Friday!! I have had a great “stampy” week and have to say it is fun to have something new to share. I had one of my hostess club meetings on Wednesday and this is what we are making this time! What was that???? Just look at the great patterns??? Oh yes…it is new catalog sneak peek time!!
The Gingham Garden Suite is one of the amazing new product offerings in the new catalog and I was so excited to get my hands on some of the items in the suite. First on my list…the Washi Tape!!! I have been watching this fun product for a while so I was thrilled when Stampin’ Up announced it would carry some of it. I knew it would be high quality and gorgeous. Boy was I right! And as always there is a line of products that coordinates with it perfectly.
So I started with the tape itself…rather, all three. I lined up the rolls and measures to see how wide they are together (1-1/2″ for the record) and then cut a little rectangle out using that measurement (1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″). I placed the Washi Tape down in line and simply wrapped it around the back of the rectangle. Really, it could not be easier!! Then I took the coordinating Gingham Garden DSP and chose the Island Indigo flower pattern to pop out a butterfly with my Beautiful Wings Embosslit. The yellow print is from the opposite side. I stamped the sentiment from Apothecary Art, popped the washi panel up on Dimensionals and attached the butterfly using Crystal Effects (a very strong glue, too, by the way). And done!
This card has made me so happy and my club ladies loved it too!! This product line (and all the other new ones) are available in ONE WEEK!!!! Yes, on May 31st the new catalog goes live. Oh, and the old catalog will still be available until June 3rd. Not enough for you??!! The Spring Catalog is available through May 31st as well. The perfect storm of stamping goodness happens on May 31st. For one day only, all three catalogs will be available for ordering!!! Plan now, be ready to be patient because like you, I’ll be ordering along with many of our stamping friends but it will be worth it!! My online store will be open (just like always) and the new catty will be available after noon mountain time.
Can’t wait to see what you think about this fun and easy card! More of these on the way for my stash!! And I’m sure I will have a more masculine version using the Epic Day Washi Tape too. Thanks for stopping in today. I hope your weekend is amazing!!
