This month my fellow NC Demos are working on Mother’s Day ideas, but there is LOTS of fun stuff going on in Stampin’ Up! land that has us really excited as Demos.

The main thing is that we have a new catalog coming out very soon!

And with each new catalog, there is a new set of In-Colors… those fun and trendy colors that we will be seeing everywhere in this coming year.  Clothes, home decor, linens and paint.  And yes, in our papercrafts.

It is fun to be right on trend for sure!

So I was looking at some of my stamp sets that will be going away with the new catalog, and a safe bet is always the Hostess Sets in the previous catalog.

Thankful Life Photopolymer Stamp Set 143202 Price: $13.00 This host stamp set is only available with Stampin’ Rewards.

My Mom loves flowers, but now lives in a facility where she really can’t have real ones.

So a fun stamped vase of flowers will last longer anyway.

She also doesn’t really know the actual ‘day’ that it is anymore, so the sentiment in this hostess set in the Occasions Mini Catalog is also a nice one for EVERY day.

And that will be great for my little Mama.

Here is my finished card, using all five of these wonderful new colors!

And what is that on the right of my card?

Why it is a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush, of course!

I love adding sparkle to my creations, and Wink of Stella is the go-to sparkle.

Well, that and some added Basic Rhinestones!

I snuck a few of those babies in the bouquet as well.

Here is a close up of that wonderful sparkle and these colors.

The names of these new In-Colors just make you mouth water… just the NAMES!

They are Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.

OK, OK, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide aren’t food things, but they are great things and look great as the new colors.  😉

Get ready to grab yours starting June 1st for customers.
