Can it really be time to be thinking about the holidays? For those who like to get a head start, Stampin’ Up! has adjusted their holiday catalog schedule this year in your favor! The holiday catalog customer sales period begins August 1, a month earlier than in previous years. While we wait for the catalog to begin, it’s my job to show off the new products (one of the pleasures of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator) with lots of fun samples . . . starting with today’s clean and simple (CAS) card!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- Meet Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper. It salutes harvest time with fresh and fun patterns. Colors include Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Island Indigo, More Mustard, Lucky Limeade and Raspberry Ripple. I discovered that Sahara Sand (my card base and card stock for the pear) coordinates pretty nicely, too.
- The pear stamp and little stem are from the new Perfectly Preserved stamp set. They were cropped with the Cannery Set Framelits Dies (also new) that coordinate with the stamps. So quick and crisp!
- The Sahara Sand card base is 4 3/4″ x 3 3/4″. The strip for the sentiment measures 5 1/2″ long and allows the card to fit in a standard (A2) envelope.
