One of my favorite treats at Founder’s Circle is having one of the first opportunities to see and use select new Stampin’ Up! products.  Today’s card highlights a luscious suite of new products I received, all accented with gold and available January, 2014.

I guess the big question is . . . what do you think of these new goodies and my card?  Please leave me a comment below!


  • SNEAK PEEK!  The “you make me happy” sentiment was stamped using Early Espresso ink.  The image is from the Happy Watercolor stamp set.

  • I cropped the sentiment with one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies.
  • SNEAK PEEK!  If you aren’t a Washi Tape fan all ready, you will be!  I adore these three clean, gold patterns that give splash to a handmade card in seconds.  The trio is called Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape.

  • SNEAK PEEK X 2! Two snappy new trims.  Gold Sequin Trim adds a boost of shiny texture and Gold Baker’s Twine adds metallic pizzazz to the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Faceted Designer Button!
  • SNEAK PEEK!  I lined the Whisper White Envelope with the new Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  Yes–Vellum!  Think of all the ways you could use this soft and pretty look!
