New Catalog Preview

Stampin' Up! changed the catalog start date this year, moving it back one month.  It's typically in July, but with the holiday, ordering and shipping always prolonged getting new goodies!  And I'm already one week out via UPS shipping from Utah.  This also months a month earlier to play with some new sets!  I was definitely ready to see some new stamp sets. 

I also participate in a card swap with other demonstrators so I had to come up with an original design.  Sometimes I am just not in the creative mood, and other times I am so busy at work that I don't have room left in my brain to be creative!  This was one of those times.  I was working to the last minute, the night before the cards had to be overnighted, giving me the maximum amount of time.  I was cutting roses as I put my daughter on the bus that morning in fact!  But I got them done!  Phew!

This card uses the new set Papaya Collage and the labels frame and rose are the new In Color Raspberry Ripple. I used the Twitterpated designer series paper, but used Pink Pirouette since Blushing Bride is no longer in the catalog. I used a touch of Gumball Green on the leaf and the scalloped border, and Soft Suede to frame the embossed Very Vanilla panel which I stamped the leaves/branch image 3 times on in Soft Suede. I stamped off once so that the Soft Suede would not be as prominent.
