Happy New Catalog Year!

It's a Happy New Year across the Stampin' Up! world today.
Why? you ask. It's only June 1st!

Yes, the calendar is correct, but today is the first day of the all NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog and crafters everywhere are rejoicing!!
You can check out the NEW Catalog Online by using the link on the right hand side of this blog. You'll notice the pretty NEW Catalog cover photo - honestly, you can't miss it, it's SO gorgeous! And what's inside is even better!
Online ordering begins at 2 pm est (noon MT) so you have a few hours to be wowed by all the awesome samples and NEW products and make your wish list!

The card I'm sharing today is one that I designed for a special acheivers event with my downline team in April. I love my downline and am so proud of how much they've accomplished this year - they are rockin'!
Ya' know, you could be part of the fun we always have together too. There's an awesome special offer on the Starter Kit this month - Just $99 gets you your choice of $125 in products from the NEW Catalog AND you also get a BONUS of $50 in FREE products from the New Patio Party Suite. THAT'S a fantastic offer and a great way to check it out.

This card uses the NEW Everything Eleanor stamp set combined with the Lovely Letters alphabet. The card base and background layer are in Crumb Cake cardstock.

To make the background frosted, I used my Brayer and rolled Whisper White Craft Ink onto the front of the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder before inserting the cardstock to emboss. The ink was transferred to the debossed portions and created a soft, elegant background.

The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and the pearl accents are from the Basic Pearls package.

I created my focal images with Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette ink. The label image was stamped in Pink Pirouette then trimmed out with my Paper Snips. The medallion image was stamped in Cherry Cobbler then punched out with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. I sponged the edges with Pink Pirouette ink.

The monogram was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla, then punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. It's sponged with Pink Pirouette as well. The layer underneath is Pink Pirouette cardstock cut with the Circles #2 Big Shot Die. The layers were mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals.

If you look closely at the bottom left inside corner of the card, you can see a floral image just peeking out. That's from Everything Eleanor as well and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.

So there you have it. There's lots to look forward to in the coming days. The NEW Catalog is awesome - I know you'll love it!
I'll be starting up NEW In Color Clubs this month, so watch for details in the next few days. PLUS my 1st round of Paper Shares will be announced early next week. I'm very excited to be offering these this year and I know you'll love being able to get a nice sized sampling of all our Designer Series Papers.

Happy New Year everyone!
