Summer Mini Catalog Preview

Here are 5 cards that I created with stamp sets from the Summer Mini Catalog that starts on May 1st. One of my favorite things about being a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator is being able to pre-order items from the mini catalogs early.

It seemed once I started and got my creative juices flowing I just didn't want to stop. I was going to spread my blog posts out over the week but I couldn't decide which to show first so here they all are.

Here is the first card that I created: It uses the new set Pretty Postage & the coordinating punch.
Here is another card using the same stamp set & punch. I colored only part of the stamp and then used Tiny Tags (118592 C & 118091 W) stamp for inside words. The sail boat was inspired by a card on Mary's blog. To create the sail boat I cut a Postage Punch apart & half 1 1/4" circle. Also new is the thread (baker's twine) in the button.
Of course I think there is a Father's Day set every year. Here is the new Best Dad Ever set and using another color of the baker's twine.
This card is created using the new Strength & Hope stamp set. Stampin' Up! is donating $2 from the purchase of this set and donating it to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. There is also a digital kit that will include the stamp set & 12 Designer Series Papers & 10 embellishment pieces.
My last card for today was made using Bold Blossom, which is going to be a carryover stamp set into the new mini catalog. But really excited is the two new punches (one shown here). These punches are really exciting, they can punch 3 different images in one punch. Also the greeting is from the Happy Greetings stamp set in the new mini as well.
Thanks, Jen
