New Catalog!!!

I always love it when a new catalog comes out.  And the new 2018/19 catalog is great!  There are some absolutely gotta' have new sets in there, I've ordered several already!  I got the Springtime Impressions thinlit set and found a little time to play with it.  It's a great set! 

BTW, I don't think the link to my website on the right sidebar is working.  You can try this link to see the new catalog. 

 First of all, I used just a portion of the flowers on this card.  I water painted the background in the new Merry Merlot and also cut the flowers from that new color.  I can already tell it is going to be one of my favorite colors!  How do you like that new ribbon?  It's a little hard to tell in the picture but it is so pretty.

Here is another card with the Springtime Impressions thinlits.  The 3 flowers are clipped from a portion of the large flowered piece but the single flower is one of the dies in the set, as is the butterfly.

I did the background by scribbling long strokes on the largest clear block with the broad tip of 6 different color markers.  Then I spritzed it with water and stamped it onto the card front.  I love the delicate touch it gives to the background. 

This is the full design of the largest piece in the Springtime Impressions framelits.  I cut it 4 times of different colors and snipped them apart and arranged them on the green background.  It wasn't easy to snip either.  I forgot to bring my Stampin' Up paper snips to Wyoming with me so I had to use regular scissors.  Needless to say, I ordered another pair on my last order for the new stamps!  I sure miss those little guys.  :~)

And my last project to share today uses the Springtime Impressions upside down so it embosses instead of cutting the cardstock.  Then I used a few of the leftover flowers from the previous projects and another new thinlet set that says Happy Birthday.  It was a quick and simple card since I had the leftover flowers laying around.
