New Catalog Stamp sets announced

Here are a few projects we have been working on in classes lately.
I have fallen in love with the distressing  kit! It is on the retired list I think it is a much have if you love vintage type projects!
 Have a Seat stamp set also on the retired list is featured here.
Wood Grain background stamp. Crumb cake, Espresso, and Limeade
Vintage Wallpaper & Designer Frames embossing folders
I used the edgelits to top off the white focal piece of CS. 
The distressing tool for retro block stamping and the tearing and curling using the precision files included in the distressing kit. 
Wow they make such a difference. You have so much more control over your distressing. 
PLUS it has 4 vintage stampin spots in it. Tea Stain, charcoal, mahagonay and blue.
 I used the stamp set daring Adventure for the inside of the card.
 This stamp set is called open Sea it is on a carry over list from a Mini catty from last year!
It is tons of fun and very versatile! Will it make it into the new catty??? I don't know. I would definately put that in my stash! Again we played with the distressing kit! It is a great stress reliever! LOL
See how cute the mini clothes pins are in another sample Diana colored her clothes pin by sponging it night of navy it looked awesome.Embossing folder here is Houndstooth. I just got that and I am loving it!
 Inside- looks like I burnt the paper aaay? Good distressing and sponging
I love this card inspired by my hero Mary Fish and the Stampin' Success magazine.
To make the flower-Use the blossom builder punch and punch out 16 petals-
Using your piercing tool to curl them in and then shape them with your fingers for the perfect flower
Put 8 petals on the bottom layer of the flower attach them to a  1 3/8  circle punched piece of CS with adhesive sheets on the top for the adhesive 
and then 8 more to make the second layer, I use dimensionals to attach those. 
. Then we used the daisy die (now sold out) but another option is your boho blssoom punch stacked in the middle with a pearl. One of my favorite sentiment sets is Loving Thoughts which will be in the new catty we just found out today!! Sprinkle a few butterflies and your golden!

Here is an announcement hot off the SU press this morning!!
