There’s a couple of things you’re really going to love about today’s post. First, it’s a really good sketch by Jennifer Timko for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
And, second, there’s the NEW Really Good Greetings Stamp Set.
Jennifer’s sketch is so inspiring; I immediately thought of several ways to use it. I’ve been stashing away items from the new 2013 Stampin’ Up! product line because I didn’t want to start showing you WAY before you could actually get your hands on it. However, now we’re less than two weeks away from the big reveal, so I think it’s time to start showing you some of the items I’ve collected already.
I fell in love with the NEW Really Good Greetings stamp set as soon as I saw it. I can’t wait to show you more stamps from this set! I inked this image with Midnight Muse and the NEW Coastal Cabana ink. This particular sentiment is one of my favorites from the set because it can be used for a variety of occasions, especially birthdays and graduations.
The Floral Fusion Sizzlits are a perfect match for this new and contemporary stamp set. I’ve matched them to the NEW Quartrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper using coordinating colors and added a Large Rhinestone for a bold look.
I am tempted to say that the Quatrefancy DSP will be my favorite from the new catalog, but being the paper fanatic that I am, I can safely say that there are at least 3 others that I’m crazy about. I am thrilled with Quartrefancy because it has small patterns that work especially well for card making AND it has scrumptious colors!
I hope you enjoyed today’s sneak peek at some of the new Stampin’ Up! products. If you are one of my existing customers, you may have already received your 2013 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, and if you haven’t, it should be in your mail any day now!
Please come play along with Jennifer’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches; we would love to see how this clean and fresh and fun sketch has inspired you! If you need more inspiration, make sure to check out what the ‘Clean Team’ has designed for you.
