Happy New Catalog Day! Yes, today is the start of a brand new Stampin' Up! catalog and it is a fabulous one! Hopefully you already have your new catalog and your wish list ready. I cannot wait to get a hold of more stamping goodies. Let's just hope we don't break the internet.
Today is also the start of something new at the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. Instead of giving us either a color or sketch challenge, Connie and Mary are giving us a sample from the new catalog and we get to decide whether to be inspired by the color combination or the sketch. Pretty fun huh? Ready to see this week's sample? Ready to Case the Catalog?
I was inspired to use the color combination.
I think I am really going to like the new format for the challenge, Case the Catalog. It's is going to be so interesting to see what the design team creates and what we choose to inspire us.
Let me tell you about my card. The jar is from the Jar of Love stamp set cut out with the Everyday Jars thinlits. I cut the branch and the flowers using the Seasonal Layers thinlits. The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. The Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers thinlits can be purchased individually or as a bundle. When you purchase the Colorful Seasons bundle you will save 10%! The leaves are from the Best Birds stamp set and cut out with the Birds and Blooms thinlits. In the center of the bow I used a new embellishment, Faceted Gems in Clear. The Faceted Gems also come in Gold and come in 3 sizes. Fun new bling!
I hope you will join in the Create with Connie and Mary Case the Catalog Challenge # 460. For all the details on the challenge go to the Create with Connie and Mary blog. Be sure to check out what the other members of the design team created for the Case the Catalog challenge!
