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
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:
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!!
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!!
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
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
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!
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!!
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!
If you would like a complimentary catalog, send me a quick email with your full name and address to: firstname.lastname@example.org! Thank you for joining me today and have a great weekend!!
