Introducing the 2021 - 2022 Annual Catalogue

  It’s here, Stampin’ Up!’s 2021 Annual Catalogue is live!  As with other catalogues,  it's divided into suites of products – each themed suite has its very own personality & products to tempt & tantalise you. That can make it hard when narrowing down a wish list, but you'll find some products that will become favourites, I assure you. Along with the new are some products you already love that have carried over from last year's catalogues. These have a new spin on them & may just refresh your wish list even more. If you would like to download a copy of this catalogue in PDF form, just click on the photo below or as always it is linked on my side bar to the right. 

As with every new Annual Catalogue, a new set of In Colours arrive. I always love the introduction of the new In Colours as they add a coordinating pop of colour to what is already a really great range of Stampin' Up! colours.  I adore this year's selection of colours & cant wait to get creating with them. These colours lend themselves to a new look for florals, Christmas & even jungle vibes.  Plus they are featured throughout a lot of the designer series papers on offer this year.

Do you have a favourite? 

Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some of the bundles & suites offered through out this new catalogue. I hope you join me in exploring some of the fun new products available. 

Happy Crafting,

Stampin' Up! Warm & Toasty Polar Bear Card

 I don't know about you but I am a complete sucker for a cute polar bear stamp. When I saw the Warm & Toasty stamp set in the Stampin' Up! August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue I knew it would be coming to live with me.  All the images are very cute!


When it arrived I sat & looked at it & moved it to the back of my shelf. I picked it up a few times but nothing was coming to me, so it went back on the shelf again. This past week I had a stamping session with a friend over FaceTime (which is about all we can do right now due to Covid lockdown) & we chose to create with this set. 

I had an idea on what I wanted to do but wasn't sure it would work.  Here is what I came up with. We had a great time creating each other's cards over FaceTime & this set finally got the ink it deserved.   

I started with a thick Whisper white base. Next I used the Stitched Rectangles to cut a layer then cut out a circle.  I used a square of Snowflake Splendour DSP on the base then stamped the big polar bear in Momento black. I used the light Night Of Navy & the light Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends to colour in the scarf & hat & some Wink of Stella on the bear's body. It's hard to see or photograph but he looks very sparkly! Both the stitched rectangle & polar bear are popped up on some dimensionals to give a 3d type look.  

Next I flicked some Wink of Stella randomly over the card & added a few Snowflake sequins.  For the sentiment I have used Itty Bitty sentiments.  It may horrify you but this stamp actually said Blessed Christmas wishes, however I didn't like that & knew I wouldn't use it if I left it like this so I snipped of the blessed part!  

I used the new Lovely Labels Pick a punch to make the sentiment strip. This is a great punch but does take a bit of fiddling to get a good result. The ribbon is  Seaside Spray 1/4" Metallic ribbon from the Annual catalogue. 

I look forward to our next online creating session, & really hope this stamp sets sees some more ink in the future.

Stampin' Up! No Stamping Trimming The Town Cards

 I recently came across a couple of cute cards by Bree from Craft-somnia Momma & was drawn to the layout & colours she used in her cards.  These cards are lovely & bright & really showcase that stamp set with what I feel is a modern twist.

When the Trimming the Town DSP came out I could instantly see its use in this card layout, so I set to work CASE-ing these designs. I discovered that the Coming Home Bundle is a really great set to use for these cards.  I stamped the little house stamp in Misty Moonlight ink onto Misty Moonlight card stock for that colour on colour look.  For the left card I pulled out my Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set 


 Now lots of people are in lockdown at the moment due to Covid, & we cant run our usual craft classes. With this in mind I wanted to create these cards using no stamping.  As you can see this layout really works.  The OCD in me had trouble with that left sided mounting of the DSP, but I ran with it & it looks great. The Real Red dots are a happy modern addition to the Trimming The Town DSP. Instead of stamping on the whisper white piece, I embossed it using the Winter Snow embossing folder to add a bit of texture.  I also added some Misty Moonlight pieces of 2020-2021 Incolour DSP to both cards & a bow in Dapper Denim (retired) twine

So there you have it 1 design adapted 2 different ways.  After I finished these cards I came up with a few other ideas to use this set with no stamping, which I will share with you all at a later date.  This Trimming the Town DSP is available in the Stampin' Up! DSP sale during all of October so if you want to get this or any other of the DSP's on offer they are 15% off all month!  My shop is linked in the sidebar or you can head there via this link
