The New Stampin' Up! catalog arrived in my mailbox today and it is so pretty, it really is! The colors are great and it indeed has the feel of spring! Christmas is still a week away and after looking at the new catalog, I am craving sunshine and warmer temps!
Here is a peek at one of the new Hostess Sets. This is made with a Level 3 set called "Time Well Spent". Stampin' Up! sent these to all current demonstrators late last month and this is the first time I have inked it up! On this one I used the Polka Dot background stamp and embossed it on the Rose Red panel with clear embossing powder and added some faux zig zag stitching around the panel. Otherwise this is pretty easy to do, a bit time consuming to water color that big flower, but there are no real secrets here! Don't you adore the sentiment on this one??? "Time Spent With Friends Is Time Well Spent". LOVE IT!
