New Annual Catalog!!

It’s here! The new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog for 2019-2020 is here! And it’s quite wonderful! (I mean, did you think I was gonna say it’s no good? Well, I’m a terrible liar, so that wasn’t going to happen.)

I thought I might do a visual walkthrough of my favorite things here since I can’t do live videos right now. So grab a cup of your favorite caffeine, and let’s get started. I will be linking all the photos to my online store in case you see something you need. WINK KISS EMOJI.

SUITES: My favorite Suites are Magnolia Lane, Royal Peacock, Dinoroar, See A Silhouette, and Bird Ballad.

There are many more beautiful suites, and you can see them all here.

BUNDLES: My favorite new bundles are Cuckoo For You (it’s interactive! Here’s a video), Good Morning Magnolia, Free As A Bird, Dino Days, Silhouette Scenes, Bloom & Grow, Praiseworthy Prose, Friend Like You, and Tasteful Textures. But there are so many more that I really love.

STAMPS: My favorite new standalone stamp sets (without matching dies or punch) are Modern Heart, Everything Amazing, Back On Your Feet, and the Host stamp set New Wonders. And in case you are not aware, host stamp sets can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards (and they are also priced lower than other stamp sets of the same size). You do NOT have to host a party to get Stampin’ Rewards. Simply place an order of $150 or more and earn a minimum of $15 in free products.

Everything Amazing

My favorite new accessories are the Shimmer White and Shimmer Black embossing powder, Noble Peacock Rhinestones (HEART EYES EMOJI), and the Pressed Petals washi tape. This washi tape has petals that you peel off and stick down to make a flower! What?!

Navy Adventure

Stampin' Up! masculine card with Come Sail Away paper, Sea of Textures stamps, Stitched Rectangle dies, Timeless Label punch - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! I have another card featuring new stuff from the upcoming Annual Catalog and also current products.

  • My card base is Thick Whisper White (you can’t see it), 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″.
  • The gorgeous designer paper is from the new Come Sail Away paper, 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  • I cut the rectangle frame out of Whisper White cardstock using two of the Rectangle Stitched dies and put the frame up on Dimensionals. You could also use foam adhesive strips.

  • The sentiment is from the Sea of Textures stamp set, stamped in Balmy Blue on Whisper White and punched out with the Timeless Label punch (new!). I put that on Dimensionals, double-stacking the Dimensionals where the label doesn’t overlap the starburst.
  • The starburst is Night of Navy cardstock, punched with the Starburst punch. That is glued to the frame, and where it doesn’t overlap the frame, it is on Dimensionals.
  • I put the Sail Away trinket on the card with Glue Dots and tied a short piece of Sahara Sand/Night of Navy Baker’s Twine (new!) through the hole.
  • I finished the card off with Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins and Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins (retiring!).

Thanks for stopping by! Everything I used on my card can be found in my online Stampin’ Up! store (retiring products are available while supplies last, and new products will be available June 4th, or now in a Starter Kit). Make sure to use the May Host Code if your order is below $150, and I’ll send you extra goodies! If your order is over $150, don’t use the Host Code — make sure to claim your Stampin’ Rewards when you check out, and you’ll still get my free gift!

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We are a small group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world who love to share our creativity with others. You’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month we are showing sneak peeks from the new Annual Catalog, which goes live to customers June 4th. It’s such a fantastic catalog! I have lots of new favorites, and I’m sure you will, too.

Stampin' Up! handmade encouragement thank you card with Floral Essence stamps, Free As a Bird stamps, heat embossing - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For my project, I am using two new stamp sets: Floral Essence and Free As a Bird. I stamped the flower from Floral Essence in Blackberry Bliss, in three generations (full-strength, stamped off once, and stamped off twice) several times on Whisper White cardstock (5-1/4″x4″). I mounted this on a Blackberry Bliss card base (11″x4-1/4″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″ — this is a book fold landscape card).

I stamped the sentiment, from the Free As a Bird stamp set, on Blackberry Bliss cardstock in Versamark ink, then covered it in embossing powder, tapped off the excess powder, and melted it with the heat tool. Heat embossing is an easy and fun way to really make a sentiment or image stand out. I popped the sentiment up on Dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I colored 11 rhinestones of various sizes with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends marker and scattered those around the cardfront.

Inside I stamped another sentiment from Free As a Bird in Blackberry Bliss on a piece of 5-1/4″x4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Make sure you follow the hop all the way back to me so you can see everyone else’s projects. The designers on this team are so talented — you won’t want to miss any of the blogs!

Stampin' Up! handmade friend or encouragement card using Flowering Desert, sponge brayers - VIDEO TUTORIAL - sponged landscape background - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! I have a new free video tutorial for you today. I’m showing how to make this lovely sponged landscape background using the Sponge Brayers. I always forget about these great tools! So easy to use. My friend Susanne used them in her video a few days ago, and that inspired me to try again with them.

I’m playing along with The Paper Players this week.
