New Inspiration

I always like having the new Stampin' Up! catalog in my hands. Not only is it fun to make a new wishlist filled with exciting new stamps and other products, but there are always fun new ideas and samples. This card was inspired by the one on page 137. I used some of the papers and images I had on hand to recreate it. First, the flowers I chose come from the It's Beautiful jumbo wheel. I was hemming and hawing over getting the A Beautiful Thing set (I still am!) and the wheel seemed like a good compromise. I inked up the flowers with a pomegranate spot, stamped those, cleaned the wheel, then inked up a few leaves with wasabi. I cut those out and pieced it all together. The wavy edge was done freehand with an xacto knife. I had it all put together with the sentiment, but then I decided it needed a bit more, so I added a few white flower rub-ons from the coordinating rub-on set.

So what are your must haves from the new catalog? I'm waiting until September to get anything, but I do know that Eastern Blooms, Pocket Silhouettes, the Hidden Garden Rub-ons, the Haiku and Hawaii Papaya papers, as well as the Ghostly Greetings paper, and Chills & Thrills rub-ons are all on my list.

Stamps: It's Beautiful jumbo wheel
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi textured cardstock, White, DP
Ink: Wasabi, Pomegranate
Accessories, etc.: double stitched ribbon, rub-ons, dimensionals


  1. That's too funny, I have this same card in marked on my "to CASE" list from the catty. I always make a list so that when I don't have any stamping mojo I can just refer to my list for inspiration. Love what you did with it!!!

  2. This is just gorgeous, Natasha! And is it sad that I recognized where you got your inspiration without having to look, lol!?!

  3. Georgous card, I love the color combination. I'm sure this one will be C.A.S.E.d again and again.
