I have had so much fun trying to work out what to show you from this amazing mini catalogue. I have chosen three stamp sets and some of the fabulous new (yes new) in colours.

 My first offering is a card using the Shelli's Signature stamp set Vintage Vogue and new Medallion Background stamp. When I saw that we were getting these stamps I just had to get them. So many possibilities from cards to scrap book pages....

Here I have used the fabulous new in colour Rich Razzleberry. The Medallion has been stamped in Versamark. The main image has been stamped in Rich Razzleberry onto a piece of Whisper White that has been cut out using the Ovals Die from Sizzix (it is the middle sized oval). I have also used my trusting dauber to add some ink to the outside of the oval. The Old Olive mat has been cut out using the large from the same Sizzix Die. I have then used the SU! exclusive Perfect Polka Dots Texture Impressions Embossing folder to add something more to the mat. The flowers have all been stamped in Rich Razzelberry but I have used the Stamping Off technique that allows you to get more than one colour from the ink. The flowers have been cut out and I have attached a silver brad to the middle of each one. The leaves have been stamped in Old Olive and cut out. The sentiment is also from Vintage Vogue and I have just simply stamped that in Rich Razzelberry onto the card.

Materials Used (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Medallion Stamp
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink: Rich Razzelberry, Versamark
Other: Ovals #2 Die from Sizzix, Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Silver Brads.

My next card is also using Vintage Vogue and the Medallion stamp but I just wanted to show you what the card would be like using a neutral background (this time Kraft). The flourishes are also from Vintage Vogue.

Materials Used (All Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Vintage Vouge, Medallion Stamp
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Versamark.
Other: Ovals #2 Die from Sizzix, Silver Brads.

My next offering is something that DD5 will love. When we got the catalogue she looked through it and asked if I would get this set for her. Pony Party - it is almost Stampin' Ups! take on My Little Pony. So very cute.
With DD5 in mind I have used her favorite colour Lovely Lilac and made a little Top Note box. The Top Note die is exclusive to Stampin' Up!

Here is the inside...
I don't know too many little girls who would not like to get this as a gift.

The box is basically a Pizza style box with two top note's attached one to the top and one to the bottom. The Whisper White that I have stamped the Pony on is the inside bit of the top note (the bit inside the perforation).
I stamped the pony in Chocolate Chip and then used my blender pen to colour the mane and tale in Lovely Lilac. I have used my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write to colour in hoofs. I have added a little colour to the pony using my Stampin Pastels.The grass is stamped in Certainly Celery and the butterflies are stamped in Pixie Pink. The hearts on the ponies 'rump' are in Lovely Lilac.

Materials Used: (All Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Pony Party
Paper: Lovely Lilac, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, Lovely Lilac
Other: Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write, Stampin' Pastels, Top Note SU! exclusive Die.

My last offering is a Waterfall Card using the very cute set Fox and Friends.


Here is it open


I have used 4 of the 7 animals for this card. Here are closeups of the cute animals.

 

The base card is using one of the new in colours Soft Suede and the ribbon attached is also new. I have assembled the card on Kraft which goes so well with Soft Suede. I have also used the colours Really Rust (for Mr Fox), Close to Coco (for Mr Cheeky Monkey), Pumpkin Pie (for Mr Lovely Lion), and Brocade Blue (for Mrs Whale). I have also used Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets and placed them using the Crop-A-Dile. The two sentiments are from a new set Teeny Tiny Sentiments and you get 24 of them in this set. They also punch out beautifully with the Word Window Punch.

Materials Used: (All Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Fox and Friends, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Paper: Soft Suede, Kraft, Whisper White, Brocade Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust.
Ink: Soft Suede, Brocade Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust.
Other: Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, Soft Suede 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Crop-A-Dile.
