Today I'm jumping in on the final day of the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Countdown to the new catalog (nothing like coming in at the last minute, right?). We're falling in love with the "Falling in Love" suite on pages 50 and 51 of the Occasions catalog. The new Falling in Love designer series paper is gorgeous and you can see it featured on so many of the samples from the Stylin' Stampin' Design team (hey, did I mention that I'm a design team member? Pretty cool, right?). Be sure to check out all of the work by the fabulous SSINKspiration designers HERE... they seriously are amazing. I'm so excited to be stamping alongside these ladies this year.
Want to see what I did with this suite? Here it is:
I actually got the idea for this beauty from a sample in the Occasions catalog (page 52). See it's so much more than a catalog! I used the Falling Petals Embossing folder (love this one... it's a lot like the falling snow embossing folder that was so popular), a touch of the Falling in Love Designer Series paper (love that bokeh look), the fabulous new intricate doilies (they're white on one side and vanilla on the other! Genius!) and the beautiful new Falling In Love embellishments. Also had to use one of my favorite punches... the decorative label punch.
This card is one of the four cards I'm offering exclusively to my friends that host private classes in January... we'll make two boy-ish Valentine's (let's face it, most of the Valentine's we give out are to our sweeties, right? Don't worry, girls will love it, too!), this generic "lovey" card and then a fourth friendship Valentine card. I don't have a whole lot of space on the calendar this month so be sure to let me know if you'd like to book your own private class so you can make these beauties... here's a sneak peek at the other cards...
So much prettiness! I'm in love, seriously. Sadly, we're all so excited, we crashed Stampin' Up's system this morning (I really don't think that's what happened, but the company was experiencing some major issues with all of their systems early today -- phones, ordering, shipping, you name it!) so if you're having trouble getting logged onto the computer system, please be patient. And follow my Facebook Page as I will alert you to when it goes live again! In the meantime, you can check out the PDF files of the catalogs below:
And be sure to click "going" to my online Facebook party tonight to celebrate the new catties. We'll be having tons of fun and I don't want you to miss out!
Thanks so much for stopping by today... I'm so glad to have you here! I'll be back on Friday with another Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration post!
Until Next time...
