I didn't realize it until Stampin' Up! released their catalogue sneak peek, but Flamingos and Pineapples are HOT right now! Since noticing them first with Stampin' Up! last month, I have been seeing them everywhere lately - on t-shirts, home decor, bags, you name it.... once again SU is on trend! They have their very own market research team who study trends with fashion, etc. to help guide new In Colours and catalogue products! Fun, huh?!
Just one of the perks of being a demonstrator is seeing the new catalogues before anyone else and being able to order new products first! I recently took part in a swap with other members of my team using products from the demonstrator preorder, and incorporated 3 of the stamp sets we were able to get before the catalogue was officially released June 1. The Flamingo is from the Pop of Paradise stamp set, the gold embossed swirl is from Swirly Bird, and the sentiment is from Confetti Celebration! The DSP you see is also new and is from the Pop of Pink DSP pack Keeping with the heart theme, I used a couple gold hearts from the Metallics Sequin Assortment which were carried over from the last catalogue. Thank you to Robyn Cardon for the idea of embossing the swirl in gold - I love how it turned out and was super simple!
