Focus on Sweet Sorbet In Color

This month, the Simple Suite Stampers Creative Team is focusing on the new 2022-2024 In Colors and the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper. These products are in the Stampin’ Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog which launched in May. The creative team consists of twelve Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from across the United States and I am honored to be a member of the group. Each month, we create a project focusing on a particular suite of products. We strive to keep the projects simple so you can complete beautiful projects in a short time frame. 

For my June project,  I chose to focus on the Sweet Sorbet In Color.  The floral background panel and the small floral panel are from the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper.  Don’t you love that Stampin’ Up! coordinates the inks, cardstocks & designer series papers? I do! It makes designing projects so much easier!!!

To make it easy for you, a tutorial consisting of the twelve projects has been created.

Orchid Oasis 2022-2024 In Color

It’s been a busy few weeks so my blog posting had been pushed aside.  In addition to enjoying some travel, I’m been playing in my craft room with my new Stampin’ Up! “toys” and having so much fun!  My problem was starting one project, then starting another before finishing the first! Once the creativity started, the ideas kept flowing. Can you relate? The great news is projects did get completed so look for regular posts sharing project ideas with you.

The recently released 2022-2023 Annual Catalog is full of exciting, fun products and my wish list is long.  In the upcoming card class, the focus of projects is on the new 2022-2024 In Color Collection.  For today’s post, I’m sharing a class sample featuring the Orchid Oasis 2022-2024 In Color.
