The official launch!

Ta da!!!!!!!! It's midnight! And we are now officially celebrating the launch of the Stampin' Up brand new catalogue for 2009 - 2010! This was the box of beautiful products that I received, and here follows my papercraft creations from 6pm until midnight this evening...


In the kit were packs of coloured card, 12x12 patterned papers, ink pads, punches, ribbons, glue and brads. I had to stop creating a bit before midnight to take the photos and load them up here, and it's taken a while! I will start by saying though, that I made far more than I thought I would and I am sure this is due to how easy the Stampin' Up! stamps are to work with, and the fact that all of the colours and ribbons work so well together that everything just seems to fit before you start.


So I began with a tag - and if I'm honest, this was because I thought it would be the easiest and quickest thing to do, and I wanted to feel like I'd got at least one thing finished incase I didn't produce many items... it's a stamped background design, patterned paper and main stamped image.

This was my first card, and is actually becoming one of my favourites now I have looked at it for a while, I think its the overlapping stamped stars that I like! I've used the star punch (which obviously fits perfectly as SU designed it that way!), ribbon and an oval stamp - these don't need much explaining really, do they?

I have opted for what I would call simple cards, partly because that is my style, and partly because I wanted to make sure I didn't run out of time and only have one or two cards made. This one made good use of the vertical patterned paper design, and I really love this oval stamp (used with the oval punch, again fits perfectly), with a ripped, curled and inked edge.

A very quick tag using the clear stamp pad and the star and oval stamps. I threw in an additional bit of SU orange card that I had here for variation.

This card was to show that the Christmas set can be used for more than just Christmas, I think this card is quite versatile. I really loved working with the wide brown ribbon.

For some reason I really like the ribbon down the middle of this card, finished off with the cut edge. Not sure why! This swirl stamp makes great background papers with SU inks on white card, its so clear and would be great for scrapbook layouts too.

This stamped image has been punched with a circle punch, then it has an oval red punched shape behind it, you can just see the edges poking out.

It is hard to see the dimension element of this card, but the green stars are stamped directly onto the white card, the red star is raised with one level of foam pads and the brown star has two levels so stands out the furthers. Very simple but cute! And would be good for birthday cards too.

By the time this creation came along, I was looking for a break from red and green, and I found it with this purple patterned paper. Ok, ok, I know it still has green on it but it has a different look because of the colour mix. Again I created the background white paper with the swirl stamp.


This final card is a mix of papers/card with holes punched around the outside of each piece with a paper piercer.

And for my final offering of the evening - a decorated gift bag! This is pretty simple too, but starting with a brown base makes it easy peasy. A few swirls stamped in red, coupled with the brown oval stamps here and there and the background is covered. The centre piece I made with six red punched ovals, with the centre of the flower being the 'Joy' stamp punched with a circle punch.

Don't forget to check out what Lousette created here and what Suzanne made here - they both have some amazing projects on their blogs!

That's all folks - it's taken me nearly an hour to finish adding to this original post and add my text, so I'm off to bed and shall be back here tomorrow!
