We Create Blog Hop--Yay! It's a Brand New Catalog!

I'm just trying to get back after our busy wedding month, but I'm glad everything is over and life is basically back to normal. I'll share more about the wedding soon, but until then, here's the happy couple. Congrats to Kylie and Matt! (photo by Heather Wagner)

Anyway...the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog goes live today! So, we must celebrate!
This is such an amazing catalog! You can view it online, or you can get a copy from me, just message me and I will get one to you in the mail.

I'm LOVING the new In-Colors! Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon-Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. They work so well with so many of our Collection colors as well as with each other. One of my favorite colors is Lemon-Lime Twist, so I used it on both my cards.

The basic card uses LLT card stock and classic ink pad along with the Craft White pad. The Happy Celebrations stamp set is returning from the Occasions catalog (yay!). I love to use all the shapes for backgrounds, so many options. I added some Rhinestones I colored with the Chalk Marker (you can also color them with Sharpie markers!)
The stepped-up version uses Watercolor paper and some of the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper in Berry Burst. I stamped Berry Burst and Lemon-lime Twist on the watercolor paper and then I spritzed it with water. After it dried, I stamped Playful Backgrounds in Basic Black. Finally, I stamped the "celebrate" with White Craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

I'm excited to hear what you all think of the new catalog. Please leave your favorite new stamp set or accessory in the comments!
