Floral Statements

Hello there!  Have you been having fun looking through the new Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog?  I know I sure have!  I actually just received my first box of new catalog product (well...I already had some new product- but my package today was filled with things that weren't on the demonstrator preorder).  

When my box arrived, I wasn't actually able to open it right away.  You see today is my friend Julie's birthday and since she is having a weekend retreat 30 miles from my house I decided to surprise her instead.  I stayed to visit for a few hours and then came home to play!

The first set I picked up was the Floral Statements set.  This set is absolutely GORGEOUS!  I'm totally in love with it!  It truly makes the prettiest cards!  Did you notice that I used the new Polka Dot Basics Embossing folder to create an embossed background for my top layer?  The polka dots on this folder are the perfect size!  Not too big and not too small!

Here's a close up of some of the embellishments.  I gotta say- that new 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon is pretty fabulous.  It ties nicely and has such a silky smooth texture.  And what about those new Metallic Sequins?  They are GREAT!  I love how there are black sequins and iridescent sequins!  They pop!

Thanks for stopping by!

Remember- for the month of June ONLY- you'll receive the Birthday Memories Mini Scrapbook Tutorial FREE with your $40 purchase!  

The link to shop is on the right side bar.  Once I receive confirmation of purchase- I will send the tutorial to you via email.  This tutorial is a 32 page full color tutorial with easy to follow directions.

  1. I ordered Floral Statements, too. Can't wait to get it. I received the metallic sequins in my display stamper box and they are so decadent! I just love them and I can't believe there is no actual photo of the assortment in the catalog. I'll just keep talking them up! I love your card, planning to CASE the catalog myself with the sheet music background!
