Did you miss my all-day LIVE walk-through the new Stampin' Up catalog? That's ok! You can still grab your new book and curl up with your phone as we walk through the catalog from cover to cover, pausing to stamp and chat along the way!
All five sessions recorded LIVE on Facebook on Friday, June 5th, are available to watch at leisure on Song of My Heart's Facebook fan page.
I'm posting some of the things we made that day here so you can view them up close a little better. Be sure to pin any ideas or layouts you want to save for later!
Here's some highlights from our five sessions that day.
We learned to use the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, which makes six different tags sizes in two different designs. So fun! Then we recreated the sample card from page 22, in a gorgeous color combo of Night of Navy, Bumble Bee, Gray Granite and Petal Pink. There are so many fun new color combos in this catalog!
This adorable baby card from page 47 was a blast to make by first watercoloring, then tinting our embossing paste for a really cool, textural background. It was supposed to have glitter mixed in, but I forgot! Oopsie! I love the mix of easy samples for beginners and those of us in a hurry--and plenty of more advanced cards with lots of details.
We also talked about how to spot versatile layouts throughout the catalog that will work with lots of different stamp sets. We made the cute card on page 55 after breaking down the layout and color combo. I don't have Zoo Globe (yet) but we made do with Inspiring Iris.
We walked through making this Ornate Frames card while discussing the TWO brand new Stampin' Up die-cutting and embossing machines that are coming out this fall! We can't wait!! We dubbed them the Big Mama and the Baby Mini : ) Stay tuned for a date, coming soon!
One of our last projects during the walk through was this Tasteful Touches card. I don't think this stamp is a capable of making a bad card! And all it is is Night of Navy cardstock and ink, and Very Vanilla cardstock. It doesn't get any less expensive than that to make your own cards at home. WOW!
After we got through the entire catalog start to finish in three sessions, we ended the day with a recap of all the basic techniques featured in the book (shared in another post), and then a relaxing session of stamping with one of my new favorite bundles. You'll have to watch the final session to see what it is!
Thanks for sharing in my fun--it's SO MUCH MORE FUN to look at the catalog with a friend!
