Be Of Good Cheer

I hope everyone enjoyed a nice Mother's Day yesterday! I certainly did, and my three children spoiled me something awful. It was great! You may think I'm a little premature sharing a Christmas Card with you already, but if you make as many as I do, it's never too early to get started. Besides, I wanted to share some of the new products with you from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  This card features products from the Be Of Good Cheer Suite, including the Chock Full of Cheer Stamp Set, Be Of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper, and Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon. I so love all these new products! They make it easy to create a fabulous project.

I made a monumental discovery yesterday, thanks to a tip from a fellow demonstrator. She told me that the new Firm Felt stamp pads are juicy enough that you can heat emboss with them if you apply the embossing powder right away. So I gave it a try and it worked perfectly! I used a Gumball Green Ink Pad and Clear Embossing Powder here. Isn't it beautiful and shiny?! Love it!

Stampin' Up! Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Chock Full Of Cheer
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Designer Series Paper: Be Of Good Cheer
Ink Pads: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
Tools: Big Shot, Snowburst Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, 1 3/4" Circle Punch

The new products mentioned today will be available effective June 1 in the Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 Annual Catalog. If you would like a copy of the catalog, I would be happy to send you one free, with a $5 fee for priority shipping. Click here to request a catalog or to shop now.

Have an awesome day!

thanks for the sneak peak, I'm so excited for the new style of inkpad. It's welcome news! Thanks to your experiment I'll have to dig the EB powder out of the dungeon for a comeback. :D
