2020-2021 Annual Catalog product sneak peek!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy card featuring the 2020-2022 In Colors and some new products from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! This card was inspired by the annual catalog as I really wanted to show you ALL of the new In Colors and how well they all coordinate together, not just with products from the annual catalog! Normally when you would stamp “tone on tone”, you would use the same ink and cardstock color, however, since demonstrators were not able to order the new In Colors as part of our pre-order, I resorted to the all-time favorite of using a Versamark ink pad, which basically has a similar result, to stamp the image! 

To start, I cut a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of cardstock in each of the 2020-2022 In Colors, used the five different leaf and flower stamps from Lovely You to stamp one of the images on each color of cardstock in Versamark ink, cut each of the cardstocks into ¾” strips, and punched each end with the curvy label punch from the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Use the swirly circle die from Painted Labels Dies to cut a piece from Vellum cardstock.

2. Stamp the sentiment from A Grand Kid on Whisper White cardstock in Night of Navy ink and punch out with the 2” Circle Punch.

3. Use the Misty Moonlight/silver Baker’s Twine from Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to tie into a small bow.

Cut a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”. I first lined up the cardstock strips on the card base to make sure it was pretty centered on the card front and used liquid glue to adhere each strip, starting from Misty Moonlight. To give this a different look, I started with the Misty Moonlight lower, alternated with Magenta Madness higher, and so on:

Adhere the punched-out sentiment on the vellum cardstock, use a drop of liquid glue on the baker’s twine to adhere to the vellum cardstock, and then use dimensionals to adhere the sentiment piece to the center:

For the inside, cut a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 ¾” x 5”. Stamp the sentiment from A Grand Kid in Night of Navy ink and the leaf stamp from Lovely You in Night of Navy ink, stamping off first. Adhere the stamped sentiment cardstock to the Misty Moonlight cardstock and then adhere to the inside of the card:

So, what do you think of the new In Colors?? Now, with the way I stamped and cut the In Colors cardstock, you would be able to make five cards with the ¾’ strips and would have five ½” strips, which you could use as accent pieces on other cards. Another trick I found with this card, is that if you stamp off Night of Navy ink first, the color is pretty close to the Misty Moonlight cardstock! For this card I wanted to show you how fun the sentiment from A Grand Kid are, even if you are not a grandparent! **All new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be available for customers to purchase on June 3, 2020**

The 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Product Preview!

Hello and welcome to today’s special blog post!! This week has been an exciting week, first I received my 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and then I received my pre-order box of brand new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!! So, this is my “Show and Tell” for you about the products that I was able to order before the catalog goes live on June 3, 2020! In case you didn’t know, Stampin’ Up! does allow for demonstrators to order from upcoming catalogs before they go live, however, with the annual catalog, we can only order from a select list of items. With that being said, even we could not order any of the 2020-2022 In Color inks, only paper and embellishments (insert game show loser theme music here-lol). I will admit that did make me pause for a moment because that’s the first time I’ve seen this, but it’s ok and I just have to wait a little longer for the new ink colors and order more products!! lol

2020-2022 In Colors

Colors l-r: Bumble Bee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight

Here are your new In Colors, what do you think?? To help give you an idea as to how they compare to our current colors:

Colors l-r: Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider, Early Espresso
Colors l-r: Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight
Colors l-r: Bermuda Bay, Just Jade, Garden Green
Colors l-r: Melon Mambo, Magenta Madness
Colors l-r: So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Bumble Bee
Colors l-r: Daffodil Delight, Bumble Bee

I really do like these new In Colors and it will be interesting to see which one is my favorite! For the Magenta Madness, the only color that was close and not too red or too pink is Melon Mambo. For Bumble Bee, it was really hard to get a good picture of the difference compared to the rest of the yellows, so I took a picture compared with Daffodil Delight. Now, it may look like it’s close to Crushed Curry, which it is, but it has a slightly more orange hue to it. When you have it in your hands, you can tell the difference.

I am so excited about this new stamp set, A Grand Kid, because it is what us grandparents need!! Yes, I have two beautiful granddaughters and I just love these sentiments, which you could use for any occasion, just not your grandkids!!

In Good Taste 12×12 DSP (In Good Taste Suite)-Basic Gray, Early Espresso, Gray Granite, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Rococo Rose, Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla, Whisper White

I love, love, love this new DSP, In Good Taste!! It is a 12″ x 12″ DSP pack that you get 24 (YES!!) sheets, 2 each of 12 designs. It’s kind of like Stampin’ Up! took the best designs from previous DSP’s and combined them into a mega DSP pack!!

Lovely You Bundle-Lovely You stamp set and Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
You can layer labels from two different punch designs, 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1″

Now you can create labels at any length with the stamp set and coordinating punch! This really made layering sentiments a whole lot easier and takes them up a step! You can punch both ends or only one, the choice is up to you!!

Forever Greenery Suite

Forever Fern stamp set and Forever Flourishing Dies
The dies that coordinate and cut out the stamps
Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper-Garden Green, Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White
Greenery Embossing Folders, Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, Gold Hoops Embellishments
Greenery Embossing Folders-2 folders each measuring 6 1/4″ x 3 3/8″

Man, can you say “Mega Suite”?? There are so many ideas that came to mind, but I really feel that this DSP can be use for your fall and Christmas cards! The ribbon combo pack is a Very Vanilla weave ribbon (very soft and easy to use) and a gold trim and the gold hoops can be used to make a wreath for your cards, especially when combined with the accent pieces from the foil sheets! If you look closely at the dies, some of them are also cut and embossing! This suite makes it so easy for you to create those “WOW!” cards!!

Flowers for Every Season Suite

Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the Sunflowers Dies
The dies that coordinate with the stamps to cut out
Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack-Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon, Just Jade Gingham Ribbon, Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine
Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder

Now, the Flowers for Every Season Suite is a super-duper mega suite! There are actually two stamp sets for this suite and I chose the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle! There are three embossing folders that coordinate, the Tasteful Textile and the Greenery Embossing Folders, how cool is that?? There is also a Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ DSP (all 2020-2022 In Colors, Poppy Parade, and Whisper White), but at the time I placed my order, this was not available (insert game show loser theme music here-lol). However, the DSP and the brand new Brass Foil Sheets did become available the day after, they will be here in the next week or so. I also feel that after I saw the DSP, it looks like it could also be another versatile DSP for fall and Christmas cards. There are a couple dies that also cut and emboss!

Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder
Old World 3D Embossing Folder

Gone are the days of crinkling up our cardstock when we are distressing it? Maybe! This embossing folder also coordinates with the World of Good Suite, but I just wanted this cool embossing folder! I can’t wait to try it out!!

Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim

This Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim also coordinates with the World of Good Suite! No, this suite is not on my shopping list, but several products are! Now that the Copper Trim has retired, I thought this would be a great substitute! It’s very soft and pliable and I thought it would pair nicely with the In Good Taste DSP and a few other things!

So, that is my show and tell for you today!! I hope you like these products and are excited about the new products in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!! I can’t wait for the catalog to go live on June 3rd! I will probably start sharing my card creations with you about the last week of May, I want to get a few more cards made from the 2019-2020 Annual and 2020 Mini Catalogs before I have to say goodbye to the retiring products!
