Tomorrow is the big day!

Well, it's getting closer! Tomorrow is the big day - you should be able to view the new catalogue online at the Stampin' Up! website! Demonstrators can't place orders until 11am so I'm not sure if the catalogue will be online before then or not. But be warned: there will be a huge amount of traffic, so don't be surprised if you can't get to see what you want to see until later on when things have calmed down a bit.

I wish I'd had more time for stamping this past month so I could have shown you more sneak peeks. But now I have to start stamping, in preparation for my Catalogue Launch Party on Saturday 10th October. I have demonstrations and Make & Takes to prepare, as well as competitions and prizes.

Here's another peek of the Good Friend stamp set, which I've used to make a funky flower. The spiky “petals” are made from the bird’s beak! Sometimes it’s fun to think out of the box when stamping – who knows what you can create with your stamps?

The greeting is partially inked with a marker, to omit the word “good”. Not that I differentiate between my friends when sending cards – but the larger greeting wouldn’t fit on this little square card.

Stamps: Good Friend
Cardstock: Old Olive, Rose Red, Whisper White, So Saffron
Ink: Rose Red, So Saffron, Old Olive
Accessories: Earth Elements buttons

All products by Stampin' Up! Please email me to order a catalogue, or click the link on the right to view it online.
