This is my second review using products from the brand new Stampin’ Up Catalog. If you missed my first post with details about what’s in the catalog, along with more project ideas you can check it out here.
For my first card (shown above) I used pattern papers from the All Abloom paper pack along with the bird nest stamp from Nuts About You and the frame, flowers and leaves from the Sweetie Pie Frames set (this set isn’t in the catalog but can be purchased from the Stampin’ Up site or your consultant for a limited time). To get the multiple colors on my bird and nest I used markers to color directly on the rubber of the stamp. This card would be a perfect baby or new home card.
Next I used the globe stamp from the Traveler set, I stamped it using black Memento ink and colored it using the Blendabilites markers. The stamped world bubble is from the Project Life Point and Click set and it co-ordinates perfectly with the bubble die cut from Word Bubble Framlits dies. The pattern papers come from the Maritime and Project Life Everyday Adventure papers.
For this last card I used one of my favorite new sets, Nuts About You. Coloring directly on the tree stamp using makers I was able to get the brown and green color on the same stamp, I used broad strokes with the brown to give it a wood grain look. I also used markers on the little bird that sits in the tree. I love the little squirrels sharing a nut, aren’t they so cute? I framed the sentiment with a wood shape from the Project Life Everyday Adventures Accessory pack. The pattern paper comes from the Everyday Adventure Project Life kit. I also add a strip of washi tape across the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed more inspiration using the fun new products from the Stampin’ Up catalog. Be sure to contact your local demonstrator (or find one here) or order directly on line from Stampin’ Up to try out some of these great new items yourself.
