2021 Annual Catalogue | It’s go time

There’s nothing more exciting than a new catalogue! Pretty pages filled with new things you “have to have”. Hopefully you’ve got a hard copy already hanging out in your house. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the link to the online PDF. You can also message me to request a copy.

Unlike previous catalogue cycles, the 2021 Jan-June Mini Catalogue hasn’t retired yet. So, you currently have two catalogues to shop from – the Mini and the new Annual. This means you can combine old and new favourites – a pairing that hasn’t happened before!

We’ve been enjoying seeing the new In Colors in action across April as demonstrator’s preorders arrived. They are Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya.

I’ve combined Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent with the Wrapped Bouquet bundle from the Jan-June Mini Catalogue.

There’s two different bouquet options and two different ways you can wrap them in this set. I shared the other style of bouquet in posts here and here (click on the links to check them out if you missed them).

This style of bouquet has such pretty flower and I really love the 3D effect of the newspaper wrap. The die embosses all the folds required, so you cut out one piece and then fold.

If you want to, you can stamp the newspaper print on the folded wrap but I love it as a background accent for this card. I’ve cut three Very Vanilla Stitched Rectangles in the same size and stamped them in Sahara Sand ink.

The flowers for the bouquet are stamped in Soft Succulent with fussy cut Polished Pink accent flowers. I used a section of the Polished Pink stamped image that didn’t have flowers to cut the heart – using a die from the Kangaroo Dies set.

The final touches for this card are the twine holding the tag on and the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment. It’s cut using the now retired Stitched Shapes Die but until I wait for some of my new catalogue things to arrive, that was the perfect shape for what this card needed. Retired doesn’t mean our relationship is over! Some Stampin’ Up! is forever!

What’s your idea of the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Does a handmade card with a Stampin’ Up! Gift voucher sound perfect? Start dropping hints now. I can provide your family with the card and gift voucher! Give them my details and I’ll take care of the rest!

Party Puffins + 2021-23 In Colors

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators were able to order new catalogue Stampin’ Up! supplies a couple of weeks ago and I was excited to have my box land on my doorstep early this week. Housework neglected, bedtime ignored – it was so much fun to unpack and play with the gorgeous products.

Most of my box contained an assortment of products in the brand new 2021-2023 In Colors. Introducing…

They are a such a pretty mix! Do you have an early favourite? I love how well they coordinate together – ready for a range of styles of stamping.

Another cute little new addition in my box was the Party Puffins stamp set. The black stamping of the puffins was the perfect contrast to show off the new In Color range.

Dancing their way into our hearts, these puffins are definitely stealing the show from the pre-order list.

EVENING EVERGREEN

PALE PAPAYA

POLISHED PINK

FRESH FREESIA

SOFT SUCCULENT

As well as the In Color cardstock used for the card bases, there’s also Stampin’ Blends in each colour, a stack of DSP in 4 different patterns and sweet little gems.

The top layer of the card base has been cut using a new die from a set you’re going to want to have called Basic Borders. It’s going to add a great textural finish to your projects in 2021.

If you love the idea of having early access to all your favourite Stampin’ Up! products, you’ll be excited to hear that all the items you see on these projects are available on preorder and can be added to a Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit. $169 for your choice of $235 of products including free shipping and then a 20% discount on all the orders you place until October 2021. If this sounds like a deal you’d like to get on board with, click here to buy your Starter Kit. If you have any questions, please message me.

Butterfly Brilliance Collection

There’s a new range of butterflies available – and although they will appear in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue in May, they couldn’t wait to stamp with you and have released early!

The collection includes the products listed below, or you can order them under one product code (159408) as the Butterfly Brilliance Collection for $125.

– Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set (155092) $30
– Brilliant Wings Dies (155523) $77
– Butterfly Brilliance Bundle – stamp set & dies (155821) $96.25
– Butterfly Bijou 6”x6” DSP (156824) $20
– Natural Touch Specialty Paper (156825) $8.75

You know I love DSP and buy it all, so of course I couldn’t resist getting the Butterfly Bijou DSP during the demonstrator preorder period!

The butterflies in the DSP can be fussy cut with scissors or with amazing product coordination by SU! they can also be cut using the Butterfly Wings Dies!

The sentiment is borrowed from the Boho Indigo stamp set in the Product Medley. The Butterfly Brilliance stamp set is 6 delightful butterfly images, meaning you can mix & match it with your favourite sentiments.

The beautiful watercolour style background is on the reverse side of the DSP and showcases the colours of the DSP perfectly. I’ve cut it using a square die from the Stitched Shapes Dies and then layered on another piece of white. To change it up from my usual standard card size, I’ve made this one as a slimline card – long and skinny.

All of these gorgeous butterfly products are now available in the online store or via your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. If you live in Australia and don’t have a demonstrator, please contact me as I’d love to get some butterflies into your craft room!

Curvy Christmas | kelly kent

I’m still in a blue phase, so it’s a Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight trio with silver highlights.

Curvy Christmas | kelly kent

I’ve combined the stars from the curvy stamp with the Stitched Stars Dies. As always, the new products coordinate perfectly with things you’ve already got in your craft room.

Curvy Christmas | kelly kent

The detail and curve of these dies is so pretty. I love how the sentiments are made to follow the curve as well!

I know you’re going to fall in love with this bundle. Just two more sleeps and it will all be available in my online store. Click here to shop.

DSP | Add to Cart in October

All through October 2020, Stampin’ Up! are offering a 15% discount on selected DSP patterns. You can see them all in my online store. Here’s a snapshot from the store, click to browse online.

I have many favourites, but one that has particularly caught my fancy this year is the Whale of a Time DSP from the Annual Catalogue. It’s part of a suite and has a range of coordinating products including a stamp and punch bundle called Whale Done.

Whale of a Time | kelly kent

The DSP is filled with beautiful marine life including seahorses, turtles, crabs, jellyfish and more.

Whale of a Time | kelly kent

The punch coordinates with the paper and punches out the whales. I love it when I can add a perfectly coloured image from the DSP to my card!

Whale of a Time | kelly kent

The other DSP I’ve been really getting a lot of use from is the In Good Taste pack. It’s a large pack, with 2 sheets of 12 different designs – which are all double sided, so you get 24 different photographic textile patterns. I’ve kept half the sheets as 12×12″ size and I’m using them as backgrounds when I take photos of my cards. Here’s a snapshot of some of them in action from my Pinterest.

Whale Done is just $17 until the end of October and In Good Taste is only $31.45. Shop online and have it delivered to your door. And then create pretty cards with pretty paper until your heart is content. I can’t think of a better way to craft than with DSP!
