Little Grey Rabbit

There’s some very exciting Stampin’ Up!® news on the horizon... even more fabulous stamps and accessories!

There’s a brand new Mini Catalogue being launched on 1st April and demonstrators have the privilege of ordering early. Naturally, I couldn’t resist and this card showcases some of the exciting new products.

I love, love, LOVE this new stamp set. It’s called Forest Friends and there are four stamps; this cute little rabbit, an owl (hurrah!), a deer (think Bambi) and a funky tree.

The paper is new, too. It’s called Tea Party and features lots of lovely soft colours and florals; it will certainly please those who have been asking for Designer Series Papers in shades of lilac (not that you can tell from this card but there are papers featuring Almost Amethyst, too).

Have you spotted anything else that’s new? Next up is the striped Grosgrain Ribbon. This comes in three colours; Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and, shown here, So Saffron. It’s beautiful and ever so easy to tie.

The last new product featured on this card is the Scallop Oval Punch. Like the oh-so-popular Scallop Circle Punch, it also has a sister punch – the Large Oval (not shown). My Scallop Circle Punch had gone walkabout when I was making this card so I improvised with two scalloped ovals... and I quite like the result. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention.

So there you have it; four brand new products to whet your appetite. The Mini is a 24-page, A5 catalogue featuring lots more stamp sets, Designer Series Papers (there are two other sets) and accessories. You’ll be able to view it online from 1st April.
