Okay, guys. I have a piece of really shocking news. I’ll let you sit down.
I’ll wait – go ahead!
Okay. Brace yourself.
I don’t have a card to share with you today!
I know. The sound we all heard was me crashing down from the pedestal upon which I know you’ve placed me! 😉
I decided to spend my day getting pictures ready to share. Pictures of the new goodies that you’re going to see in 45 days (yes, I also calculated that number for you!) In 45 days, the new catalog will go live! So I figured you might want some more peeks into the catalog.
I hope I was right!
I also wanted to answer a question for y’all that I got in a private email today. I was asked about Annual Catalog shares. The answer is that – yes, I will be doing paper and embellishment/ribbon shares for the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog! Yippee!! I haven’t quite worked it all out yet – but I can tell you that I’ll be making the official announcement around the beginning week or so of May!
So there’s that. Since I’m sort of on the topic of paper and embellishments and ribbons….I thought I’d share those with you today. So you can start to get an idea of what’s to come! I’m also going to post some more product Suite photos out on my Facebook page. If you want to check that out, here’s a direct link to my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page! 🙂
So – here we go! Fair Warning – there’s a lot to share. So, you might want to get a cuppa something warm and a comfy place to perch!
Let’s start with the wonderful Designer Papers – these all work with the product Suites!
Leading the pack – the Pop of Pink Designer Specialty Paper. The paper coordinates with Basic Black, Whisper White, and Melon Mambo. There’s also two gold-foil patterns!
Our next paper is the Irresistibly Floral Speciatly DSP – this paper has a white-on-white floral image on one side and a white-on-white image on the opposite side. Ink it up and the designs show up. This is the paper that coordinates with the Irresistibly Floral Suite. Sorry – it may be hard to see. Being tone-on-tone and all that!
Third, we have the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP. This beautiful paper includes two sheets that have copper foil accents running through them. As part of this Affectionately Yours Suite – Stampin’ Up! has released Copper and Black Metallic Thread. And copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder! You’ll see those when we get to the Embellishments part! This paper plays well with Crumb Cake, Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder. And Copper! 🙂
We’ve got another beautiful Christmas paper for you. The This Christmas Specialty DSP, which coordinates with Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Very Vanilla, also includes a sheet music design – one of my favorite things! 🙂 Hey – did you see that Cherry Cobber Stampin’ Emboss Powder is retiring? Best get stocked up!
Next up? The stunningly beautiful Floral Boutique DSP. Consisting of lovely patterns in Whisper White and Night of Navy, this paper is really gorgeous! It goes so well with its Detailed Floral Thinlits and the Floral Phrases stamp set.
Like in the previous couple of catalogs, SU! will offer coordination card stock packs to purchase along with these papers. So, you can be ready to start crafting in just a hot second!
Ready for more paper?? Moving on…the next paper is the colorful and exotic Moroccan DSP. This paper uses mosaic and graphic images in colors of Cajun Craze, Dapper Denim, Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, Emerald Envy and Very Vanilla. Look at how much color and impact you can get with just a sheet of this paper!
The Fruit Stand DSP has, as you might image, bright and cheerful colors and patterns with flowers and fruit! You’ll be able to coordinate Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White with this juicy paper. Makes my mouth water just typing the words! 🙂
See what I mean? Also sporting beautiful patterns and florals is the Blooms & Bliss DSP. In quieter colors – Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White – this paper will become a spring and summer-time go-to!
Ready for some birthday paper? With a bit of a twist? Well, here’s the Festive Birthday DSP. In bold, Latin-inspired colors, this paper packs a fun punch. Team it with Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. And the matching stamp set and Thinlits boast an oh-so-cute llama! I’ll post that over on the FB page!
By The Shore DSP has…as you might have guessed!…oceany graphics to coordinate with the fishy Seaside Shore stamp set. Make your own beach-y cards using colors of Calypso Coral, Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla.
The new 2016-2018 In Colors got their own Stack – which will really let you stretch your creative legs!
Here’s one I’m really excited by – we’ve got new Envelope Paper in the 2016-2018 In Colors. And these papers are solid on one side! Just like an envelope should be. Whoo-hoo! 🙂
The next three papers come in 6″ x 6″ Stacks! Handy! The first is A Little Foxy and it’s really cute. On one side, the designs are executed in Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Whisper White. One the other side, the designs are all neutral in Smoky Slate and Whisper White. How versatile is that? 🙂
Next up is the Serene Scenery Stack and this paper is just gorgeous! It’s got photorealistic scenes on one side and graphic designs on the other. You’ll see Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, delightful Dijon, Island Indigo, Old Olive, Pool Party and Whisper White. I’ll put some examples we saw at OnStage up on the FB page! This one is going to be awesome!
Finally – you still with me? – we have the Playful Palette DSP Stack. This is an arty, painterly paper with Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla. Pretty pretty! 🙂

First we’ve got brand new, 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon in the new In Colors!
Then there’s the 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon – in new colors from before: Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Real Red and Very Vanilla.
Next up: 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon in the 2015-2017 In Colors: Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe. You can see that they’re striped with white – which tones the colors down!
We’ve got two new colors of 1/8″ Stitched Ribbon – Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate. Bermuda Bay, from last catalog, is the third color of this ribbon.
Baker’s Twine is up next – we’ve got three new Thick Baker’s Twine colors (Cucumber Crush, Melon Mambo and Whisper White) and three returning colors (Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla)
And a new kind of Baker’s Twine – SOLID! Same thickness as the original Baker’s Twine we all know and love, but no Whisper White strand. Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Elegant Eggplant, Emerald Envy and Night of Navy!
We’ve got a nice new thin ribbon – with a Natural base and either Gold or Silver as a center stripe.
I told you up above that we’ve got new Copper and Black Metallic Thread! I love this embellishment!
The last four new ribbons are the Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim, Whisper White Mini Pompom Trim, Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, and a new burlap ribbon, the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.
Last – but not least – the fun embellishments! I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves!
Washi Tape – all new designs…
Enamel Shapes – like Candy Dots – but also in Stars and Hearts!
And then there’s a few other new fun goodies… Gold Binder Clips, Fabulous Foil Specialty Acetate (Gold on one side, looks Silver on the other) and new Delicate White Doilies (3 1/2″)
