With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog yesterday, my day was filled with excitement and joy. My product shares have been ordered, and I’ll be a cutting, wrapping and packaging hermit for the week after they arrive. What fun! I love saying “hello” to a new catalog, so I created a “hello” card with some of my favorite products in the new catalog. Today’s card features a look at three amazing, new products that you shouldn’t live without – In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, the Tasteful Label Dies and the Forever Fern Bundle. More on those later – here’s my card:
- Forever Fern is Always In Good Taste. I showcased the Forever Flourishing Dies on a post a couple week ago (you can see it here). The stand-alone dies in this set are amazing, but the Distinktive textures on the stamps make this a must-have bundle. I stamped two of the branches in Old Olive and cropped them with the coordinating dies. I stamped another branch in Pretty Peacock and cropped them with the coordinating dies. Here’s a look at the Forever Fern Bunde, which includes the Forever Fern stamp set and Forever Flourishing Dies: I paired this bundle with the natural textures of the photographed images in the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for rustic look. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper:The 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper includes 24 sheets (2 each of 12 double-sided designs). If you’d like to flip through all of the individual pages in this GORGEOUS pack of papers, you can see them all in my online store – CLICK HERE.
- Linen Thread. This project sat on my table for two days as I switched out the layers and colors. I was pretty set on the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, the leaves and the Tasteful Labels Dies cutout – I had multiple options for everything else. Something felt like it was missing – that’s when I decided to make a little box with my Linen Thread. That was just what the doctor ordered – this light user of ribbon and twine had loads of fun with this element: The base of my arrangement is cropped from the Tasteful Labels Dies – is it possible to over-use something? I might already be tiptoeing in dangerous territory. Here’s a look at the Tasteful Labels Dies:
- Rich Color Combination. The earth tones in this paper and the earthiness of the leaves called for a card that’s rich in color. The card feels fresh and beautiful even if the colors seem to point to Autumn. If you like this combination of Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and Early Espresso, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
