Oh, the Anticipation...

...of a new catalogue!! One more sleep until the new 2016/17 Annual Catalogue goes live and I am like a kid on Christmas Eve! So many amazing new products I can't wait to get my hands on. Now, this also means that today is the LAST DAY to order retiring products from the Occasions and 2015/16 Annual Catalogues...don't be disappointed and miss out on those items you've been meaning to pick up.
Now for a little more of what you can expect to see in the new catty...

Isn't that colour fantastic? It is the new In-colour called Sweet Sugarplum. It looks amazing paired with Mint Macaron and another new In-colour called Emerald Envy. I used the new Swirly Bird stamp set to create the flowers. To get the ombre look I first inked the stamp in Sweet Sugarplum and then daubed Rich Razzleberry around the edges of the stamp before stamping on Whisper White card stock. The leaves are stamped in Mint Macaron ink and the veins are added in Emerald Envy.

I added a hint of Pool Party spatters in the background, stamping off once before stamping on the card stock for a soft look. The image is die-cut using the new Layering Squares Framelits. Now, I'll admit, I didn't think I needed those, especially since I already have the current Squares Framelits. However, once again, I was wrong! These new dies layer beautifully, leaving narrow borders AND there is a full set of scalloped squares as well as the regular ones. This set is like two sets in one! Here I layered a plain Mint Macaron square behind my stamped one and then added a scalloped Emerald Envy square. Love this look! I adhered the layered squares to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF. I added some silver foil die-cut swirls from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and mounted it all on a Mint Macaron card base. The sentiment, from the Endless Thanks set, is stamped in Emerald Envy ink and punched using the new Duet Banner Punch. The only embellishments are a few clear sequins for a bit of sparkle.

On the inside I stamped the flowers and leaves again in the same manner I did on the front. I omitted a sentiment so that I would have lots of room to write my thoughts.

Now, I'm off to finalize my wishlist for my first new catty order tomorrow...have a great day!!
