You’ve Got This…Sneak Peek from Stampin’ Up!’s 2015-2016 Annual Catalog

It’s happened!  I’ve already picked a favorite stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.  I know, I know – I need to calm down and take a breath.  Yes, there are plenty of other incredible stamp sets in the upcoming catalog that I couldn’t select for my Demonstrator Pre-order, but I picked out this beauty before I even knew it was on the list.

You’ve Got This is a MUST HAVE stamp set – not only does the stamp set have a beautifully sketched background stamp, but it has a super-cool flower and some amazing sentiments.  It’s versatile and beautifully artistic.

Here’s another take on the same images (the thatched background stamp and showcase flower) and the same colors.  Mint Macaron takes on a much lighter appearance on this 4-1/4″x4-1/4″ card where the white background is prominent:

  2. Great post and I totally agree…a true blue winner in the new catalog. I was thrilled that it was in the pre-order. Thanks for sharing the tips….great inspiration …again! Have a great weekend.

  3. Another awesome card Brian! Clean and simple yet so elegant!

  4. Looks like a winner for sure!

  5. In love with the textured background! Could see this also colored with Aqua Painters. Thanks for the ideas!

  6. Cool cards! Great tip on a textured background. I love this stamp set as well. The thatched background had me at hello. 🙂

    I see a make and take as well as a “step it up”. Great for a workshop or class. Thank you Brian, you are a great demonstrator/teacher.

  8. I didn’t order this set and so regretting it!! Might need to put in another preorder lol!

  9. Oh boy , Brian that card couldn’t be more beautiful , just love it ,
    All I will say
    WOW !!!!
    Tfs my friend !!!
    Hugs frenchie,

  10. Awwww….such a soft pretty color . This card is another “keeper”. Pretty pretty ….
    Also I like the Mint Macron marker placed so artistically by your second card .
    That background effect is great ! We are going to have to call this The Beauties By Brian Blog !!!

  11. Good choice for one of your fave’s so far. That same stamp was about my first choice too. Love it against the new “mint macaron” paper. Now I can’t wait for mine to get here. My order arrives tonite. Fun week-end ahead for we demonostrators stamping with our new goodies. Have FUN Brian

  12. I love what you did to showcase two different looks with the same colors and stamp set. I saw this set showcased on the stampin up video to introduce the new catty and I have to tell you I was not impressed with this set as shown in that presentation. But now you have made me want to order this one! Thanks, Brian.

  13. I love this, Brian, and will definitely be CASE’ing it! Thank you so much for sharing!

  14. Gorgeous cards Brian. I will definitely be getting this stamp set. I appreciate how you demonstrated the effect a different color background has on what is basically the same card. I’m filing that away under Brian’s Tips. Aloha

  15. Hi Brian:

    I was never impressed with those kind of grungy looking background stamps – that is until I saw the cards you made for today. That background stamp really does provide a wonderful background for this particular stamp. It’s subtle yet draws your eye to the main floral stamp which is exactly what one would want to have happen. Quite a creative combo. Thanks for sharing. Have a Fabulous Friday! 🙂

  16. Love these cards and the new colors are amazing. thanks for the sneak peeks but it does making the waiting a little tougher lol

  17. Brian – love it love it – mine is on the way can’t wait to CASE your card when it gets here. I ordered on the first day – your in Atlanta – I am in Pahrump, NV – you have your’s and I don’t – think they are busy at SU??

    Thanks again for all your great shares. See you in July in Salt Lake.

  18. Brian, these are both so beautiful!! I also fell in love with that stamp set because of some problems a family member is having and the “You’ve Got This” sentiment… I hope my cards turn out half as pretty!

  19. BEAUTIFUL! The layers, the colors, the layout; absolutely gorgeous. Can’t wait for my new toys, er, TOOLS!

  20. Love your cards, Brian. I thought the same thing when I saw the catalog online ~ my favorite stamp set and was very excited to see it on the preorder list!! Just came today so I can CASE your gorgeous cards. Thanks for sharing your amazing talents *Ü*

  21. I love this stamp set too. I can’t wait to get mine. The thatched background stamp caught my eye immediately. Thanks for reminding me that coloring with markers is an option too. Ha ha. Why do I always think of watercoloring?
    Beautiful cards, Brian.

  22. LOVE the new colors….looking forward to playing with them….Love that you make so m,any square cards….they are my favorites!

  23. Brian, I saw these on SCS, and wow! They are amazing, and I love this new set. Your cards are so classy and beautifully made! Thanks for sharing on SCS and here!

  24. Cathy from Illinois

    Love these cards!! Thank goodness the new catalog is for a year!! Loving the new stamp sets and colors!

  25. Karen Anderson

    I do love this set,too. Thanks for the inspiration!

  26. Brian, I LOVE (!!!!) this card. Did you stamp the flower and mask it before stamping the background?

    • Thanks, Amy! I stamped the background (stamped off once or twice) and then stamped the flower. I colored the flower in with my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker, and it picked up some of the ink from the background, smoothing out that pattern a bit. I’m glad you like this!
