We all love new stamps do we not?

Being a Stampin Up! demonstrator has many benefits and one of those is to be able to pre-order stamps and products prior to the catalogue being released. This goes for all catalogues and allows us to have some samples made up for when the new catalogue commences. One of the sets i pre-ordered was the lovely little Contempo Christmas – its on page 23 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue (got yours yet??)

[singlepic id=1146 w=320 h=240 float=center]

Stamps: Contempo Christmas
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Cottage Wall DSP (retired)
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Accessories: Two Way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon (retired), Stampin Dimenionals

This card was a great card to create to use up some of the left over Cottage Wall DSP and Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon I had left over.  This card will be even quicker if you have the lovely new Extra Large Ornament punch which I’m just waiting to arrive.

Now although I used retired DSP and ribbon on this card you could easily re-create with new DSP and ribbons from the new 2o10-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue – it would look great with the Jolly Holiday DSP or even a couple of sheets from the new Patterns Stacks – you can find them on page 127.

The new DSP Paper Stacks are a new item and they include 40 sheets of double sided patterned papers in the Colour families – you get 4 different designs/patterns in the 10 colours in each family or the 5 colours in the In Colour family for just $37.95 – thats less 95 cents per sheet! Now you cant beat that for double sided high quality patterned paper!

The ladies at yesterday’s Stamp A Stack loved this card and how easy it was to put together.

I will be posting out some more 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogues today to those who have ordered them recently. If you dont have your copy then please ensure you ring or email to arrange your copy.
