Hello Stampin' Friends!
As you know, Stampin' Up! releases it's Annual Catalogue every June 1st. It's always difficult to wait soooo long to see what's going to be in the new catalogue; there's usually a lot of guessing and speculating as to what will be retired, what will be carried over, and what will be new and exciting.
Well – you still have to wait to see the WHOLE catalogue – but Stampin' Up! is giving us a chance to preview a NEW STAMP SET, AND ORDER IT!! How cool is that?!
This new set is called "A Round Array", and the stamp set only is $17.95 (item #129090).
Better yet – if you bundle the stamp set and the coordinating punch – you get a SPECIAL BUNDLE DISCOUNT!! The Bundle (item #133899) includes the stamp set and the 7/8" circle scallop punch, and is only $29.95 – a 15% discount!
Aren't these stamps so cute? There are soooo many things you can use them for, and so many different events! Goodie bags, gift tags, embellishments on cards and in scrapbook pages…you're only limited by what you can imagine!
Plus – you can add this to your ORDER NOW, BEFORE SALE-A-BRATION ENDS, and with a $60 order, you get to choose a FREE ITEM (stamp set, punch, paper, etc) from the SAB catalogue.
Remember how I said you have to wait until June 1st to see the new catalogue? Well, I'll let you in on a secret….if you're a Stampin' Up!

Now I'd like to share with you the cards I made for this month's Stamp Set of the Month – Tea Shoppe. As soon as I saw this set, I knew I had to have it! The images are both classic and cute, and the numerous sentiments can be used for any number of ocassions.
Depending on how you use each stamp, it seems like it changes – whether it's bright, funky colours, or soft and romantic; fussy cut, or heat embossed – there's so much you can do with it.
You can see on this card (above) it has a softer look, with the doily behind the tea cup, which is stamped with Island Indigo ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I also heat embossed the sentiment in Summer Starfruit. The 'Tea for Two' designer series paper was just a natural for the background!
With this card, the crips Whisper White card stock really helps the bright Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Rich Raspberry and Summer Starfruit cardstock and inks just 'pop', giving it a more modern feel, even with the charming 'stay' sentiment.
I feel like this card is the perfect 'in between' card – perfect for any ocassion – as a just because card for a great friend, or a thank you for someone special. The Pool Party blue brightens up the whole card, and the Honeycomb embossing folder keeps it modern. It doesn't matter whether you drink tea or coffee, this set is perfect!
I hope you enjoyed seeing these cards, and will join the Stamp Set of the Month Club. There's no obligation to purchase every single month, but there are perks & benefits of purchasing 3 months in a row. You can either pick up your Set, or have it mailed to you. And because you get not only the stamp set, but also the 3 completed projects, plus the precut cardstock and embellishments, plus written instructions to recreate the 3 projects, you'll always know right away how to use your new stamps, and have the necessary products to make your own!

Thanks for sharing some time with me! I'd love to hear from you,
