Summer Mini Favorite Thoughts

Stampin pretty watercolor trio favorite thoughts

Oh, how I love this look!  The soft stems of the new Watercolor Trio set were inked in Whisper White Craft Ink and stamped on Kraft card stock.  The snappy quote from Eleanor Roosevelt (a sneak peek of the new Favorite Thoughts set) is layered on top in Chocolate Chip. 

SUMMER MINI CATALOG COMING SOON!  Both stamp sets will be available May 1 (in both wood-mount and clear-mount versions) with the release of the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog.  Need a Summer Mini Catalog (and you don't already have an active relationship with another Stampin' Up! demonstrator)?  EMAIL ME for your free copy.  U.S. only, please.

    One of my favorite, all time quotes and I have used it computer generated. Anyway, please tell me it won’t be $$$! CAn you tell me if the butterfly empbosslete or whatever it is called will be in the new catalog or offered later? I really am not sure I need to buy more stamp stuff this month but I think I may really use it. Also, the bird stamp – I can never tell if I will use it that much. Love your card and love all your work. You continually amaze me!

    Hi Chris: Which bird stamp? The butterfly embosslit die (Beautiful Wings, 118138) will be continued as a “write in” beyond the Occasions Mini (which expires 4/30). I’ll be posting the complete list of available items soon! Hugs, M
