It’s so much fun to sit down and experiment with new products, especially when you have a definite goal, using the Colorful Seasons stamp set. As a demonstrator I was able to pre-purchase the new products used in May to prepare for sharing in time for the June 2017-2018 Annual Catalog release. If you don’t yet have a copy of this new catalog and don’t have your own demonstrator, send me an email with your name, address and contact information and I’d be glad to send you one. In the meantime you can check out the catalog PDF here.
Today’s goal is Mother’s Day. I needed three cards and knew pretty much what I wanted to do. My cards, using the Colorful Seasons stamp set, Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, and the fun new Color Theory 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack were fairly quick and easy to make.
And these are the cards for my daughters and daughter-in-law:
I added delicate drops of Fine-Tip Flue Pen glue to the flowers on the branch.
Let Mom sit back and enjoy a bit of cool refreshment on her special day.
Supplies used for today’s cards:
- Card stock:
- Colorful Seasons stamp set (143726, 2017-18 Catalog)
- Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (Happy Mother’s Day image)
- Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (144193, 2017-18 Catalog)
- two pieces measuring 2″ x 5-1/4″
- Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies (143751, 2017-18 Catalog)
- Big Shot
- Glitter Enamel Dots
- Multipurpose Liquid Glue
- Fine Tip Glue Pen
While I know most readers won’t be able to use the Colorful Seasons stamp set and other new products I used today, you can certainly use the layout idea and substitute another stamp set and, perhaps, coordinating framelits or thinlits. Before I go to the mailbox tomorrow morning I also need to make a “Mother’s Day” card for my brother. He’s a May 14th baby, not a mother. And on June 1st, after noon Mountain Time, I encourage you to go to my Stampin’ Up! store and purchase your early favorites from the new catalog.
The inspiration for today’s card came from the very talented Rachel Tessman.
