Fabulous new hostess sets!!!

Have you had a chance to check out the fabulous new hostess sets in the new Idea Book and Catalog?  They are great, aren't they?  We are thrilled that they are being offered in both clear mount and wood mount options this year!!

This week for Fabulous Friday we decided to focus on these wonderful exclusive hostess stamp sets to try and convince you to host a workshop so you can earn one or more for FREE!  And have you heard the news? Stampin' Up! announced this week at our annual Convention that there will be a hostess special during the month of August - any hostess who reaches $350 in workshop orders will receive an additional $25 in hostess benefits!  Yippee!

First up is a great piece of framed artwork created by Rachel Yurkanin. She used the hostess level 2 stamp set called Apple Blossoms.  Please be sure and stop by Rachel's blog to get all of the details!

This next project is from Jacque Craig.  She created this gorgeous card using the Fast & Fabulous hostess level 2 stamp set.  You will find all the details on Jacque's blog.

This fabulous card from Karla Anders features the Because I Care hostess level 1 stamp set and has a fancy fold inside... but you'll have to visit Karla's blog to find out what it is!!

And this last card is mine featuring the Silhoutte Sentiments hostess level 1 stamp set.  Please visit my blog to find out how I created the wildflower scene.

Thank you for visiting with us today - we hope we have inspired you to book a workshop and have your friends and family over for a fun night of stamping and fellowship!

Glad you came back for another Fabulous Friday here at Sisters in Stamping.  This week our challenge was to use some of the new colors that just came out on July 1st.  The color renovation is so fresh and inviting, it just screams for you to start creating.

Our first project is brought to us by Debbie Naylor.  She used the great new yellow called Daffodil Delight on her card.  She also used the new set called Aviary. Isn't it darling? Head on over to her blog to get all the details on her project.

Jacque Craig designed this very sophisticated looking card using the new Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft) for her main color.  She also used the new set called Just Believe.  I love the "dazzle" she finished the card off with.  Check out Jacque's blog for more details to create this card.

Next up, we have this fun card by Karla Anders.  She used some of the fun new Daffodil Delight ribbon on her card for a splash of new color.  The set she used is a new Hostess set called Long Fellows.  Book your workshop with your demonstrator today to earn this set.  Head over to Karla's blog for more information on this cute card.

And finally, we have my card (Rachel Yurkanin).  I used the Crushed Concord and the Pear Pizazz colors.  I also used the new Big Shot embossing folders called Elegant Lines and the great new half back pearls.  Check out my blog for full details on this card.

Thanks for visiting us this week and be sure to come back next week.  We will show you samples using the awesome new hostess sets.

Until next time,

Debbie, Jacque, Karla, & Rachel

The New Catalog is Here!

The new catalog arrived on July 1st, and if you haven't gotten your hands on one yet, rush to get one now!  The catalog is full of great new sets, accessories, tools, etc.!!  Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on items from the new catalog!  This week we are spotlighting new accessories!

Karla made this beautiful card using the new textured impressions embossing folder Vintage Wallpaper.  I love the embossing folders as they are inexpensive, easy to use, but pack a huge WOW factor as you can tell by Karla's card.  Check out Karla's blog to see how she did the vintage technique.


Debbie created this card featuring several of the new punches in the catalog.  If you love punches, be sure and check out the 4 pages of punches in the catalog!  They've all been redesigned to the new style and there are even new punch caddies to store them.  You will find all the details for this project on Debbie's blog.

Rachel used two new accessories on her card. She used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the 1/8" taffeta ribbon in marina mist. Embossing folders really make beautiful cards with minimal effort. For complete details go to Rachel's blog.

One thing I always rush to look at when we get a new catalog, is the Designer Series Paper.  Although I only used a little piece on this card it really adds to the look.  I also used the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  It was my first time using it and I think I spritzed a little bit too much.  If you haven't used it yet, I would say spray lightly, let it dry, and then if you want to add a little more then, go for it!  Check out my blog (Jacque) for the rest of the ingredients used to make this card.

Thank you for visiting and please come by next Friday when we will be spotlighting some of the new colors in our beautiful color collections!  Until then, have a great weekend!
