Well, that was a fun event last night! Definitely worth the 2 1/2 hour drive! The presentation was great, lots of projects and demonstrations of the new products. We all got the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog, a copy of the new Stampin’ Success and a new stamp set called Work of Art. We are allowed to post pictures of the catalog cover and those of you that follow me on Instagram got to see it last night but for those of you that don’t here it is!
Now that is a great cover don’t you think?! Now the most exciting thing for me is the fact that they have brought back my favorite punch of all time, the Spiral Border Punch! I would like to think that I played a role in that but I doubt it! LOL! Oh, and the sequins, they are pretty cool too! There are so many cool things in it, you are going to love it! 🙂
Moving right along, Tuesday means it time for the Stampin’ Up! weekly deals so here they are…
Tuesday also means that it’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge and Julee Tilman has given us another fun tall & skinny one…
I do really enjoy the tall & skinny ones. I thought about the sketch on the way home in the car and yes, I made the card last night at 12:00am when I got home! The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Pool Party and a piece of Soft Sky and embossed them with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The larger panel is a piece of Brushed Gold Card Stock backed with some Soft Suede and the smaller one is a piece of Etcetera Designer Series Paper backed with Night of Navy. They are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and a thin strip of Gold Foil Sheet goes across the middle. My greeting is from the A Round Array Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. The feather is from the Feathered Woodcuts Digital Download and is cut out with my E-Cutter from Crumb Cake. I used a Stampin’ Spritzer with Bermuda Bay Re-Inker and a little “Vintage” Champagne Shimmer Paint to color it. A few more Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it in place and there you have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch. I love those Feathered Woodcuts cut out with the E-Cutter and blue, all of the blues, are my favorite color! Thank you so much for checking in today to get a peek at the new catalog cover and to see my card. I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
