New card making stuff

It is almost time for the unveiling of the new catalog---on August 11th you will be able to find it online. Then you can get your hard copy of the catalog at my OPEN HOUSE on Thursday, August 21st (from noon to 8pm)!!! I've got my demo copy in my hot little hands and I am loving it!!! And have you heard that a Big Shot diecut machine is coming to SU!? Whoo-hoo!!

I was able to preorder some of the new catalog items (that is just one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demo!!!) and I will share a few pictures with you today. By the way, speaking of being an SU! demo----have you heard that there is a new $99 Starter Kit Special? Ask me about the details. There is no better time to sign up---$99 to start and only $300 in sales per quarter will keep you active and receiving your discount (usually 20% off, but sometimes more)!!!

Now on to the cards---

These cards use a new Simply Sent Card Elements Kit. The kit I used is called Flower Power Card Elements and costs $15.95 which includes all the supplies to make 9 cards (3 of each kind that I will show you). You can also get the coordinating stamp set called Wow Flowers that costs $12.95 or you can just use whatever words you happen to have on hand. I used my own medium Whisper White envelopes and stamped them to match the cards. I love making matching envelopes----it gives my cards a real designer look!! Have you tried doing that?

This Simply Sent Card Elements Kit includes cardstock, double sided paper, die cut stickers, ribbon, buttons, and brads. The kit also includes instructions for you so that you can easily create these beautiful cards!!

Here is card #3. I love these bright, cheery cards. I made all of my cards as "Thank You" cards because that is what I needed. You can easily use whatever words you need.

The new catalog has 3 different Simply Sent Card Elements Kits which do not include the coordinating stamp set. There are also 2 Simply Sent Card Kits which include the coordinating stamp set and the elements to create the cards (10 cards in each kit).

One of the SS Card Elements Kits is called Handmade Holiday Card Elements and you can use it to make 18 Christmas cards!!! It only costs $17.95 for the kit and $18.95 if you would like the coordinating stamp set. But remember, you may have your own stamps that will work with the kit.

The final picture shows all three cards with one envelope and a couple of the stamps from the Wow Flowers set. How do you like these cards? I thought that they were simple beautiful.

I will be headed to the beach in only two days!! I am so excited. Does anyone out there reading this live near Fripp Island. If so drop me a note and maybe we can stamp together next week!! I will definitely be stopping by the Carolina Stamper---great stamping/scrapbooking/jewelry making store in Beaufort, SC!! If you ever get a chance, stop by and see them.
