Summer Afternoon and a Sneak Peek

I was so excited when the Man in Brown came knocking on my door last night as he had a delivery of Stampin' Up! sneak peek products for me. So, I have a few new products to share with you today which will be released in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on June 1. I tried to design a card which would show off a few of the beautiful patterns in the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper. The colors in Comfort Cafe are Summer Starfruit (a new In-Color), Midnight Muse (new), Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla and Pool Party. The base of the card is Summer Starfruit.

The stamp set I used is called Summer Afternoon, and it is a new hostess set which can be earned for $10 with a workshop or order of $150 or more. I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Black Stazon ink and colored it in with ink pads and an Aqua Painter. Another new color was used to color the grass and leaves, called Gumball Green. I sponged everything with a little Soft Suede Ink.

Stampin' Up! Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Summer Afternoon
Card Stock: Summer Starfruit, Soft Suede, Watercolor Paper
Designer Series Paper: Comfort Cafe
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Pool Party, Cajun Craze

More news! If you loved the stamp sets in the Occasions Mini Catalog, you are in luck!

I hope you will enjoy this extra little sneak peak to the annual catalog.
