New Catalog Workshop Make & Takes...everything SPRINKLED WITH LIFE!

These are the two make & takes we did at last night's workshop.  We used the SPRINKLED WITH LIFE new stampset that I've been featuring all week and the coordinating tree builder punch!  ...and once again, we used these products in a completely different way than before...

Ice Cream anyone?!
On this birthday card, we build a 3 scoop ice cream cone with the same stampset & punch...and we even sprinkled it with a little dazzling details and/or dazzling diamonds (whichever one you have on hand will work & if you don't have either, you're gonna want one of them;)

This card features the following new in colors which were sponged onto the ice cream scoops using sponge daubers:  Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron & Watermelon Wonder.  The base of the cone was stamped in black stazon on a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock, another one of the new  in colours.  I also thought I'd mention that the mint macaron matt piece was embossed with the hearts embossing folder which thankfully carried over from the Occasions Catalog to the NEW Annual Catalog!

Our next project was this adorable self-closing box which we made from a piece of 4.5" x 6.5" Watermelon Wonder card stock:

This project is trimmed with the gorgeous new in colour dotted lace ribbon (comes in each of the new in colours) and was stamped with the flower image from the SPRINKLED WITH LIFE stamp set!  The heart edge at the top was created using the hearts border punch which carried over to the new catalog!:)

Even More SPRINKLED WITH LIFE! ...Christmas anyone? Reindeer?

So as I get ready for my new catalog workshop tonight, I couldn't resist giving you one more idea for using the SPRINKLED WITH LIFE stamp set and the coordinating TREE BUILDER PUNCH...this time, let's think's only 200 days or so away;)
That's right, these adorable Christmas tags were made with the same suite of products that I've been featuring the last couple of days (although today I did use Christmas colours instead of the new in colours:)  ...see how great the trunk from the tree builder punch works for antlers, and the raindrop it punches also makes for excellent eyes & ears!  ...oh & I did use one new in colour...the base of the reindeer is Tip Top Taupe!

These are the projects I've featured this week using this new suite of products...
I'm sure you agree, the versatility of this stamp set in punch is amazing!  I'll be using it again tonight at my New Catalog Workshop and I'll be back tomorrow to share 2 more ideas that we will be making tonight as free make & takes at the workshop!

Today I'm sharing a few more cards made with the NEW stamp set, SPRINKLED WITH LIFE, which benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities!

Cupcake anyone?!

Yes, the tree images, the cloud, the tree builder punch too, they can all be used to make un-tree-like images, like this adorable cupcake complete with sprinkles on the card above!  As with yesterday's cards, this card & the ones below once again feature the following new in colours:  watermelon wonder, tip top taupe & mint macaron!

How about a birthday (cup)cake?!
This card also uses the flower & candle images from the Sprinkled with Life stamp set...and yet another greeting...we all have birthday's so this greeting will get used a lot!

Or, how about a basket of flowers to say 'thanks'...
Same stamp set, same punch...totally different effect!

I can't get over how much you can do with this stampset & punch...check back tomorrow for MORE ideas!!

New Annual Catalog Goes LIVE today!!! ...and it's Sprinkled with Life!

The NEW Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up goes LIVE today!! 
One of my favourite new stamp sets from the new catty is this year's Ronald McDonald House set, SPRINKLED WITH LIFE!  It is SO versatile as you will see from my posts today & over the next few days **AND**  a portion of the proceeds on every purchase of this stamp set goes directly to this wonderful charity!!
Not only is it a great stamp set, but SU has also released a NEW coordinating TREE BUILDER PUNCH that works with many of the images in the stamp set!!
Here are a few samples (each was made with the same base, one of SU's whisper white notecards...don't you just love the notecards?!:)
Every cloud does have a silver lining, don't you think?!  For this card, I stamped the cloud image with versamark & then embossed in silver...then I punched it out with the new tree builder punch.  The raindrop were punched out in a rainbow of colours from SU cardstock also using the the new tree builder punch!:)

 Here I stamped the tree images from Sprinkled with Life numerous times to create a huge tree with deep routes to give you an idea of how you can use the stampset to create more than just one version of a tree...I didn't use the coordinating punch on this card althought is would work with the tree trunks & leaves.  I also stamped the falling leaves and flowers & stems using the same stamp set.  All colours on this card are new in colours, namely, I featured:  Mint Macaron for the leaves, Tip Top Taupe for the tree trunks and the 'spread the love' tag and Watermelon Wonder for the flowers:)

On this card I featured the same NEW in colours but I used the tree trunk stamp differently...this time it's a branch and I punched it out using the builder punch!  Then the nest is a cluster of the leaves stamp which was partially punches.  The little bird image is also in the stamp set & the punch coordinates too.  There's no end to what you can do with this stampset & punch!
To order SPRINKLED WITH LIFE, the coordinating TREE BUILDER PUNCH, the NEW IN COLOURS or anything else from the new catalog, please contact me OR click here to place an order online.  If you place an order online, please consider using my current hostess code:  G3E6VRGV  ...which is open until 7pm Thursday June 4, 2015.  Thanks!!

Retiring Products - Occasions Catalog also Ends June 2nd - Painted Petals

Just a reminder that the Occasions Catalog also ends on June 2nd & many of the items will not be carried over to the new Annual Catalog, including the beautiful Painted Petals designer series paper and coordinating stamp set.  This was, by far, some of the prettiest paper that SU has ever designed.  I used some for these projects over the weekend as I was preparing some door prizes.

The treat bag in the foreground uses the treat bag thinlet dies which will be carrying over to the new Annual Catalog (and there may just be a new coordinating stampset to go along with them there...hint, hint!;)  The treat bag in the background is one of the treat bags currently sold in the Annual Catalog which ends on June these will be retiring.

Be sure to place an order online at this link if you want any of the retiring products from the current annual catalog or the occasions catalog as both end June 2nd.  Here is a link for your convenience.
