New Stamp Set ...

So far I haven't really been showing you much new stuff ... I have to admit this is partly because I didn't buy much from our demonstrator-only pre-order (saving my money for next month when the new catalogue is officially released *g*).

However, I do have access to one or two new goodies. As a f'rinstance, this is a stamp from a new set called "Perfect Punches", which all attendees were given (yes, *given*) at the annual Stampin' Up! Convention in May (no one was expecting it; we were all totally blown away by this).

Each stamp in the set of 6 coordinates with a Stampin' Up! punch, and contains a variety of handy phrases such as the "happy birthday" shown here, "Joy at Christmas", "Thanks", "Congratulations" and "my friend".

The card shown here was inspired by a (poorly remembered) sample from the catalogue - I saw it, liked it and tried to replicate it, but then when I saw the original I was astonished that I'd managed to get it so wrong LOL. The sample is much, much nicer, and I will try it again sometime soon.

The more observant of my readers will no doubt already have noticed the other new element on this card ... yup, a new embossing folder to add to my repertoire. This one is called Vintage Wallpaper, and is just lovely. I will show another card featuring a larger sample in a day or two.

Your card looks great Chris. I too have not brought much on pre-order but I am looking forward to spending once the catty is live. Marls

Well, that shows how much I pay attention cause I thought it looked pretty close to the original!
