My good friend the talented Cathy Hansen organizes a demonstrator swap each time a new catalog comes out from Stampin' Up! These are always great fun and you end up with gorgeous samples of new stamps, dies, papers, etc. that premier in the new catalog. Here is my swap for this year's new Annual Catalog: This card uses some of the new stamps from Hand-Penned Petals and Encircled in Friendship, a new dsp called Hand-Penned, a new die from the Encircled in Beauty die set and one of the new in-colors - Pale Papaya. I also used the new in-color blends Pale Papaya dark and light and the Pale Papaya marker. I also used Mint Macaron card stock and the Mint Macaron dark and light blends and marker. It also uses the new Genial Gems. All of it is created using a card blank in Thick Basic White.
I am having a lot of fun creating with items from the new Annual Catalog. I'll have some more samples to show you in the coming days so be sure to come back and visit.
DH is preparing to head east for his summer sailing session. This year he hopes to take one of our grandsons with him. Our grandson will need to come back a bit early in order to start school, but DH should be home sometime in September.
