New 2011-2013 Stampin' Up! In Colors

Mr. Brown made his stop at my home Friday, late afternoon, so I've had a chance to play with my Sneak Peek items all day Saturday! Such a joyful time of the year to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator...and another reason to think about joining Stampin' up! -- an early look at all the new merchandise in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog scheduled for release July 1.

Stampin' Up! is introducing 5 fresh, new In Colors -- annual colors which keep the 48 permanent colors up to date.  Here are the 5 new, In Colors this year.  I used them on these cute fancy favor boxes.  In addition, I also use the new Delicate Doilies stamp set, the Lace Ribbon punch, and the Sizzix Perfect Pennants Bigz XL Die.  I have been wishing and hoping for a round version of the Scallop Trim Border punch and matching corner punch introduced last year.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this new die.  It was first package I opened in my Sneak Peek order. The new die includes 3 pennant sizes and two doily sizes.  I layered both doily sizes together with double layers of Dimensions in between.  I ran three colors through  my Big Shot at a time -- which worked just fine.  I did have a couple of "chads" that stuck in the doily shapes, but they came right out when I poked them with a stylus.

I used some of our existing colors so you could see how well the new colors work with what you probably already have.   

Here's what I used:

Stamps:  Delicate Doilies (available July 1)
Papers:  Available July 1 - Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder.  Available now - Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzaz, Concord Crush
Ink:  Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder.
Accessories:  Sizzix Fancy Favors Die, Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die, Big Shot, Lace Ribbon punch, Dimensionals, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Red Sticky Strip.

Calypso Coral

This favor basket uses the new Calypso Coral and the accent color is Poppy Parade.

Island Indigo

This favor basket uses the new Island Indigo, and the accent color is the new Pool Party.

Lucky Limeade

This favor basket uses the new Lucky Limeade, and the accent color is Pear Pizzaz.  The new In Color cards suggested Always Artichoke.  Looking at the photos on line, I think a darker shade, like Always Artichoke, would have been better than Pear Pizzaz.

Pool Party

This favor basket uses the new Pool Party, and the accent color is Island Indigo, another new In Color.

Wisteria Wonder

This favor basket uses the new Wisteria Wonder, and the accent color is Concord Crush.

Say Goodbye -- to 5/8" grosgrain ribbons
If you love our 5/8" grosgrain ribbons, you'll want to stock up before they are gone.  You won't find them in the new catalog.  Although there will be plenty of existing ribbons and several exciting, new ribbon styles in the new catalog, I'll miss these ribbons.  Check the Last-Chance Accessories list for all ribbons.
