My card for this week's challenge is a bit of a celebration. It spotlights products which I'm happy to say are being carried into the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (2019-20). I am always "tickled pink" this time of the year when something I love doesn't retire.
The pretty teacup, of course, is from the soon-to-be-retiring Occasions Catalogue. Of course the framelit dies for the set was one of the Sale-a-bration offerings. How wonderful it was to discover that the two products would be part of the new Annual Catalogue. Peeking out behind the teacup are the stylish open-work connected hearts, part of the Be Mine Stitched framelits dies which are part of the Meant to Be set, also from the Occasions Catalogue. I was happy to see those carry into the new Annual Catalogue as well.
That stunning 3-D style embossing behind the teacup and hearts? That folder was also one of the Sale-a-bration offerings. Happily it, too, made its way into the new Annual Catalogue. This is an embossing folder that is wonderfully versatile. I can hardly wait to try some other ways of using it.
I'm happy with the way these products came together for this Mother's Day card. I kept the colours simple with a base of Heavy Whisper White and then a layer of Mint Macaron and Highland Heather. Even the Stampin' Blends I used and those open die-cut hearts carry on with those colours.
Oh, and those pretty Gold Metallic Pearls in the centres of the flowers? Yes, they've also carried over into the new catalogue.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
