You're going to be seeing a lot of cards using the new Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper.  One design from this DSP pack, the little triangles, was very popular at Leadership, and I saw many swap cards at Stampin' Up! conference in Houston using the DSP from the Kaleidoscope paper pack.
    There ideas all using Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper.  Click for larger image.

The  3 cards, I'm showing you today all the use of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper.  Inspiration came from cards I saw at Leadership.  I love to take a good design and change it up with more of my style.  That's what I did with these designs.  The cards also use several new stamps from the new Occasions Catalog that went live earlier this month, including, Pomp & Circumstance (134165-w, 134168, c),  Perfect Pennants, (133227-w; 133230-c), and Starburst Sayings (133182-w; 133185-c)

The Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper (132995) includes 12 different paper designs including 4 different polka dots designs --perfect for Spring and Easter projects-- and two Black and White designs (stripes and chevrons), yet the majority of cards using this paper used the one DSP paper I'm showing on these cards!  One of the home-office presenters showed us examples of geometrics being used all over in clothing, home furnishings, and all manner of accessories this year--and Stampin' Up! is right in step with the new Triangle punch (133375) that can be purchased alone or as part of a bundle that includes the Geometrical stamp set.  Purchased together, the Geometrical bundle saves 15% over the two items purchased alone.  We received Geometrical as one of our Leadership sets this year, another great reason to attend Stampin' Up! events!

Also new in the Occasions Catalog are the new Basic metal Buttons (133319).  We've had larger metal buttons in the past, but these come in  smaller sizes than past metal buttons, and I also found that they layer together, giving more dimension and interest to your cards.

Stamps: Pomp & Circumstance (134165-w, 134168, c), Starburst Sayings (133182-W, 133185-c) and Perfect Pennants, (133227-w; 133230-c),
