I've had the set I used on today's Simple Sunday project sitting on my desk since I came home from OnStage last month. I brought home several sets from Salt Lake City, and a few days ago I received my Occasions catalog pre-order so now I have LOTS of new things to play with. I've been focused on Christmas projects but today I couldn't resist them calling my name! I still have a few Christmas things I want to share with you but for today, I thought you might enjoy another sneak peek!
This gorgeous flower stamp is from a new set called Beautiful Day. Along with a couple of sentiment pieces, there is also a really pretty butterfly. I am loving the bold lines of the two main images! They are perfect for watercolor, which is what I used on this card.
The flower was stamped with Basic Black ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used ink from the lids of Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive, along with an Aqua Painter, to color the image. After it was completely dry, I fussy cut the image.
The sentiment is actually all one image so it was stamped twice using Basic Black ink, once onto Whisper White and again onto Old Olive. I cut the word from the Old Olive and layered it over the bottom part of the image.
That fun black and white polka dot background paper is from a new Designer Series Paper called Petal Passion...wait til you see it! It is all black and white and can be used black and white like I used it today, but it can also be colored and Oh. My. Gosh.....it is so gorgeous! LOVE IT!
I layered everything onto an Old Olive card base and then added one more new thing...some fun little adhesive-backed sequins! I always like adding sequins for a little bit of added sparkle and these make it so easy because I don't even have to dig out glue! The package comes with 250 sequins, 50 each of 5 colors. I know you're going to want to add them to your Occasions catalog wish list!
I hope you enjoyed today's little sneak peek...watch for a few more to come before the 2018 Occasions catalog goes live January 3rd!

Until next time...happy stampin'!
