My Stampin'Up! Catalogue Launch Cards

Yesterday I held my 2017 Stampin'Up! Annual Catalogue Launch. We had a lovely fun afternoon and if you follow me on Facebook you would have seen the before photos and the cute thank you gifts I had for my attendees.

Over the next few posts I'll share the projects we created. You saw the Daisy Delight card in my most recent post. Today here are my 2017 In Colour  cards. I first made these cards for my team night and the team loved them so they became my launch project cards as well.

The beauty of these cards was that not only did I share the new In Colours card and inks ( I love Fresh Fig!) but I also was sharing the pretty Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack which has all the 2017 In Colours included in all four patterns.

The other bonus is a card layout that uses strips of patterned papers. Think of all the extra papers you have on hand and how they could be used in this layout.

The punch is Stampin'Up!'s new Pretty Label punch which matches the Label Me Pretty stamp set. Did you know that can get these two items as a bundle and save 10% on the price.

All up some fun, quick and easy cards to create. Love it!

If you would like to purchase any of these items and you are in Australia please click on the images below to be taken to my online Stampin'Up! store.

I'll be back again soon with more cards from my Launch Day.

Catalogue Launch - Daisy Delight Card

Sorry it's been a bit too long between posts. Settling back into work after long service leave, some study and going away for a long weekend have not helped my creative time.

I'm sharing with you a card that is part of my upcoming 2017 Stampin'Up! Annual Catalogue Launch. If you would like to come along it is on Saturday June 24 at 2pm at my home in Mt Waverley. I have some places left so if you would like to attend please email me to book your place.

I love the new Daisy Delight stamp set and matching punch. So many love it that Stampin'Up! have sold over a years supply in six weeks!!! Currently the company is awaiting new stock to arrive and it will be available for ordering again in July.

Along with this card to be made at my launch you will make three others using new catalogue products, see samples made using new products, get your new catalogue if you haven't got your hands on one yet and receive a gift from me as a thankyou for attending. Cover charge is $5 but will be refunded if you make an order on the day. If you are one of my regular customers there is no fee, this is my thankyou to you for being one of customers.

Thanks to Cindy Elam for your card idea. It is a lovely card to CASE. I tweaked the colours for mine.

Please email me at to book your place.

Hope to be back here again soon!

                                Friday June 30 at 10am

Farewell Gorgeous Grunge & Petite Petals

It's that time of the year when the current Annual Catalogue makes way for the next Annual Catalogue and that means saying goodbye to some favourite stamp sets as they retire from sale.

Gorgeous Grunge has been my go to stamp set for a few years now. Always there for adding a bit of  background texture or when in a hurry to make a quick and easy card. The same with Petite Petals and it's matching punch. What am I going to stamp and punch out now from all those teeny scraps of Whisper White card that I hoarde?

Here is a final farewell card using retiring products from the 2016-2017 Annual catalogue.

How is this for a clean and simple card? I've used the retiring inks the In Colours of Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush. The rhinestones are retiring too to return in a new configuration in the new Annual Catalogue.

The sentiment is also from a retiring stamp set - Suite Sayings. I stamped my images onto Shimmery White cardstock which gives a nice bit of sparkle to a card.

You have one more day to get your order in for any of the retiring products. May 31 is the deadline!

On a positive note that means we then have the excitement of a brand new catalogue to drool over and find some new favourite stamp sets.

Make sure you get your last chance order in on time!

Cheers until my next post,

Stampin'Up! Paisley & Posies Card

Here is another stamp set I have finally managed to get around to anointing with ink!This one is the Paisley stamp set which first featured in the 2016 Holiday catalogue and carried over with the Occasions 2017 catalogue.

 I took my inspiration for this design from this pin I saved on Pinterest 

I made the stamped paisley panel larger and changed the colours to Pool Party, Sweet Sugar Plum, Mint Macaron and Perfect Plum. The stamped panels were raised with Dimensionals onto a Whisper White matt, which was also raised on Dimensionals when added to the folded Thick Whisper White card.

Accents were added by the addition of the Whisper White Bakers twine and Enamel shapes in co-ordinating colours to match the inks used.

See you again in a few days if I get time before Stampin'Up! On Stage in Sydney this week!
