Sneak Peek of the Stampin' Up! Painted Lavender Stamp Set and Dies


  • Stampin' Up! Painted Lavender Stamp Set and Dies
  • January 2024 Lovely Lavender Paper Pumpkin Kit coordinates with Perennial Lavender Suite including the Painted Lavender Bundle
  • Customer add-on dies work for three upcoming Paper Pumpkin Kits

Today I'm turning my attention to the wonderful new 2024 Mini catalog that customers can begin purchasing from on 4 January, including earning Free Sale-A-Bration selections.  Demonstrators, like myself, have been attending Stampin' Up! events like OnStage@Home to see demonstrations of new products, and I have received my preorder from the new catalogs so I can begin preparing sample to show you these new items.  Today, I would like to introduce you to the Painted Lavender Bundle including the Perennial Lavender 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.   My card idea uses the Painted Lavender Stamp Set and Dies, along with the Designer Series Paper, and Purple Fine Shimmer Gems.  I'm also using the Thoughtful Expressions Dies, which include several new shapes that work well to accent images from the Painted Lavender Stamp Set.  My color theme is Lost Lagoon, Pretty Peacock, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Fresh Freesia and Crumb Cake.  I love working with new sets.  The Painted Lavender Bundle is one of two bundles that is part of the Perennial Lavender Suite, which I'll highlight in a later post.  And, as an added benefit, the Perennial Lavender Suite coordinates with the January 2024 Lovely Lavender Paper Pumpkin Kit!  See below for more details.

    The basecard for the card above is Lost Lagoon Cardstock. Then, I used one of the floral prints from the Perennial Lavender 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper from the January- April 2024 Mini Catalog, and matted it on a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  I also used the new Thoughtful Expressions Dies--also from the new Mini Catalog-- to create an image layer of Crumb Cake Cardstock matted with Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  I learned from experience to stock up on coordinating ribbons for cardstock colors I planned to use after they retired, and then learned that Fresh Freesia was a "returning" color in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.  I'm so happy I had purchased extra Fresh Freesia 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon to have on hand as it coordinates so well with the Heather Highland and Gorgeous Grape in this suite.  The Lost Lagoon 1/4" Bordered Ribbon from the Annual Catalog also works well with this designer series paper, and the new Mini catalog includes a Pretty Peacock & Gold 3/8" Metallic Ribbon that would also showoff the colors in this print.  I love options.

    Next, I used the Painted Lavender Dies to die cut floral images and butterflies in Highland Heather Cardstock, and leaves in Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  I stamped floral images in Gorgeous Grape ink and the butterflies in Highland Heather Ink before using the Painted Lavender Dies to die cut them.

    Finally,  I used an additional die from the new Thoughtful Expressions Dies to die cut a Basic White label for my sentiment.  I stamped a sentiment from the new Everyday Details Stamp Set using Pretty Peacock Ink, and added Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment before adhering to the card. The Perennial Lavender Suite includes Purple Fine Shimmer Gems, and I added a small gem from this pack to my sentiment label.   You'll also want to decorate the outside of your envelope with one of the images from this Painted Lavender Stamp Set, as well as decorate the inside of your card before sending your finished card to someone you love.
