New Catalogue excitement!

Anyone else out there excited for August 11th? The day we can order from the NEW Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalogue. Demonstrators were allowed to order some sneak peak items, including the new In Colors for 2008-2009. Yes, sadly my favourites: Purely Pomegrante and River Rock along with their 4 other siblings will no longer be avaliable with the release of the new catalogue. I have seen some samples of what other demonstrators have made with the new colours and I am impressed, they look a lot better than I thought. But my shipment should arrive this Tuesday, so I'll be making some new cards and stuff. So check back next week for my take on the new colours.

Well this weeks card, I know new job got in the way of stampin' again this week! But on to the card: I stumbled upon a blog by a lady named Kristina (KWernerDesignBlog) awhile ago and I've been dying or trying to take part of her Color Inspiration challenges. I have seen many great designs from others playing with the great colour combos she dreams up! So this card in my take on her colours: Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla

Great combo by the way! Here is my invitation card with this colour scheme:



Here is the recipe to make this:
Stamps: So Many Scallops (SAB set, retired), Jumbo So Swirly Wheel, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Soft Sky, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Rhinestone Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scalloped punch, circle punch

The strip of Certainly Celery is cut at 5.5" long and 1.5" wide. On the scalloped punched pumpkin pie I've done paper piercing.


Pin It!
