Stampin Dreams Blog Hop - Annual Catalog Sneak Peak

Welcome to my first Sneak Peak of the new Annual Catalog using a combination of the Celebrate Sunflowers and Forever Fern Stamp and Die Sets!
This is my card for the  Stampin Dreams May Blog Hop.
I am Ann, coming to you from Ohio,  here to share some new product inspiration with you along with others that are here to share their ideas as well.
I have a thing for sunflowers, so when I saw the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle - it was one of the first things on my must have list from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog coming out in June.
I knew I was in trouble when I was only on page 13 and already had a nice list going!
This card also uses some of the greenery stamps and dies from the Forever Fern Bundle.  These greenery stamps are those distinctive stamps that have all the shading in them- they stamp beautifully without a lot of work.

Also on that same page - Pg 108 in the new catalog -  I also used a tiny part of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.   The gold grid back ground and a couple of gold dot sprigs are from that pack - and there are a lot of pieces in that gold laser cut pack - it will be well used and loved.

Two other new items used on this card is the Tasteful Textile 3D folder.  This didn't look like much in the catalog - but I am such a huge fan of the Sublte embossing folder that I took a chance on this one- boy am I glad I did!!!  Love it!!!  You will be seeing this one a lot on this blog!!

The other new item is the wood paper - it is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I can't tell you enough how beautiful Stampin' Up! DSP paper is in person verses seeing a photo of it in the catalog.  This pack features all sorts of textural goodies that add so much to a project.

Oh - I forgot Dimensionals!!!   I did use quite a few dimensionals on the flower and leaf layers!
I was super pleased with all of the items I used in this card.  As I mentioned in the first line of this post - this is just my first sneak peak post - there are so many wonderful new products in the new catalog - I will be doing a few more sneak peaks. There is one thing I was disappointed with in the new catalog and that is that you can only purchase the Stampin' Blends in the Combo Pack - previously you could purchase the light and dark separately.  But I am thrilled with the new In Colors and I will be highlighting some of those within the next two weeks.  I have a lot to show you from this new catalog - so be sure to follow me on either here on my blog or on my Facebook page!

Let me know if you have any questions!!  These new products will be available to order on June 3rd.  If you do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I would be happy to help you out and have you join my team!!

I hope you get lots of inspiration from this hop today.  Please enjoy all the ideas from the other demonstrators participating today!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
