The New Stampin'Up Catalogue is Here.....

and I love it !!!! There are so many gorgeous new products including pretty crocheted lace trims, vintage brads, beautiful designer papers,  new Sizzix dies and lots of fabulous stamp sets. There are so many things I want so decisions, decisions what to buy first.
I was able to pre-order a couple of stamps before they went on sale, when I saw 'Forever Young', I knew straight away I needed this one. Here are a couple of cards, there are more to come, this is just one of the stamps in this set, there are also silhouettes and a cuckoo clock which is beautiful and so different.
I chose the colour scheme of Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder when I saw  this card by the talented Mona, I would never have put these three colours together myself but when I saw Mona's card they work so beautifully together.


For the second card I just stamped half the tree  and coloured the leaves and blossoms with the Stampin' Write Markers.
