That bird......

This is another of the new sets in the new catalogue, called Good Friend. That bird seems to be everywhere at the moment. It's all over splitcoast and all over any Stampin Up blogs from the US, so I thought I should join in the fun.

The bird is stamped in Pacific Point which I think is my favourite of all the new in colours. The versamark stamped shapes on the summer sun and rose red are from the same set. I've also included one of the new flower brads, and I've stamped the sentiment from the window dressing set. Normally I don't go for schmalzy messages, but for some reason that one just works for me!
I realise that colour combo is quite bright and in-your-face, but it's straight off the new combo sheet from SU, so it must be right!
Stamps: Good friend, window dressing
Ink: versamark, pacific point, rose red, summer sun, choc chip
Cardstock: summer sun, rose red, whisper white, pacific point
Other: flower brads, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon

New Sets! New Sets!

Only 20 more sleeps til we get the new catalogue! Wooohoooo!!!

One of the (many) benefits of being a demonstrator is that we get a little sneak peak of some of the products out of the new catalogue, which we can order in advance. One of the sets is a level 3 hostess set called Window Dressing, which I just couldn't resist! It arrived on Monday and I had to play IMMEDIATELY! The set comes with the window (of course) and assorted little items you can place in the window. Here you can see the cat, and the little girl. It also comes with three sets of words which fit around the top of the window. It's hard to see in the photo, but the words on the left are "You make me smile!"
The card on the right is based on the Mojo Monday sketch challenge for last week, and because the sketch has a big square in the middle, I decided to lop off the top arch on the window.
So exciting getting new sets. I have a couple of others, as well as the new in-colours, so I will hopefully get a few posts out this week so you can have a sneak peak too!

Girly Elephant

Well it appears the card in the last post wasn't the workshop card after all. It was this one!

I went back to the old tried and true wild about you. I am not suprised it is staying in the new catalogue. It is such a versatile set for boys, girls and babies. Even adult boys don't mind if you say "Wild About You"....
Cardstock: pretty in pink, basic grey, whisper white, purely pomegranate
Ink: basic grey, purely pomegranate, versamark, pretty in pink
Stamps: Wild about you, birthday whimsy
Other: purely pomegranate ribbon, berry bliss DSP, crystal effects (on the flower - hard to see in the photo)
