More Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peeks

Stampin up sneak peeks strength and hope paisley petals
Happy Fabulous Friday!  I have a couple more previews of future Stampin' Up! products to share with you on today's card.  Do I have any inquring minds out there?  I used this week's Splitcoaststampers Sketch (SC323) to get the juices flowing!

The first peek is at the Strength & Hope stamp set.  Both the butterfly image and sentiment (very powerful stuff) are from this stamp set.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I'm proud to be part of Stampin' Up!'s partnership with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation? (BCRF) .  For every one of these stamps sets sold (or the coordinating Digital Kit), Stampin' Up! will donate $2 toward BCRF.  Your first opportunity to purchase this stamp set will be May 1, when the Summer Mini Catalog is launched.

  • The Stampin' Up! colors in the new Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper are: Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango.  Quite a variety of colors!
  • Note:  I used Bravo Burgundy today, which was a better match than Cherry Cobbler . . . so far, no arrests have been made 🙂
  • Keep your ribbon in place.  Check out my No Slide Ribbon Video.
  • A Stampin' Up! Antique Brad takes the butterfly image to "WOW" in seconds.

STAMPIN' UP! PUNCH NEWS:  The Ornament Punch (119847) is available again!

  4. Love the color combo, Mary! I recently became a SU! demonstrator and I love to hear that they make stamps & donations to such a wonderful cause. Thanks for all you wonderful ideas!

  5. Paisley Petals is so beautiful! I can’t wait to order mine!

  7. Absolutely breathtaking! I love the set and the paper.

  8. Hi Mary, I just got this set and the paper too. Love it and can’t wait to use it. I have a dear friend who just had surgery to remove tissue, so my first card will be for her. You always inspire me and I love your work! Have a great day!

  9. oh MS. mary how pretty, i love that paper, and the colors you pick, love it ! nice work like always !!!!!
    hugs frenchie
    ps just got mine yesterday….

  10. like your idea to use bravo burgundy instead of cherry cobbler to match better…..if they toned some of the colors down why wouldn’t they just call it the color it is? i have tried putting old olive and tangerine tango with some of this paper and no go! so you got me venting, Mary!:) wonderful card. thanks!

  11. Absolutely gorgeous!

  12. Good morning, Mary: I love the stamp set and the paper and this card is, as always, beautiful. Breast Cancer Reaserch is a great cause and I’ll be happy to get this stamps as soon as they come out. I have a childhood friend in Mexico who a couple of years ago had a double mastectomy. We’ve known each other since the 4th. grade and, even if we don’t see each other often, we keep in touch by mail and phone calls. She is doing fine now but there was a time when we were so scared about her situation. She just became a grandma and she feels blessed that she got to see her first grandson.
    This stamp set is beautiful and it’s great we can help a great cause like this.
    Take care Mary.

  13. Ah! Nice Sketch, and very pretty card. Going to enjoy this stamp and happy it’s for a great cause!
