A Quick Update

Just a really quick post as I have to go finish tomorrow's Blog Hop post.

I'm sure that most of you will have heard that the new Annual Catalogue goes live tomorrow but some of you may not be aware of a couple of things.

When I sent out the catalogues to customers last week, I mentioned that the Blendabilites would not be available on 1 July but on some date to be determined. Well, blow me down with a feather, it has been announced that 6 of the colours will be available from tomorrow.

You will be able to purchase the following colours:
  • Old Olive
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Rich Razzleberry
  •  Skin Tone Assortment
  • Color Lifter
  • Memento Ink Pad

The remaining 6 colours (Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and Wisteria Wonder) will be available from 1 August.

There are also a few Project Life items which will not available from tomorrow. Namely, the Love Story Card Collection and Accessory Pack. These were not expected to be available until September but will now be available to order from 14 July onwards, along with the 12" x 12" Album.

One quick sneak peek project to share today. This was made using the Coastal Cabana Blendabitilies and a new Hostess set called Bloom with Hope. It also features some of the paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack and the new Thick Baker's Twine in Coastal Cabana.

And yes, you can use the Blendabilities to colour rhinestones and pearls. I used the Coastal Cabana pen to colour some to match the card.

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the Stampin' Stars Blog Hop. It goes live at 9.00 am (fingers crossed) so you will be able to hop around the various blogs from then.

Oh, one other quick thing. Have you noticed the new tab at the top, called Tutorials?  I have added my first one which is for the project from last Wednesday and intend to add new ones on a fairly regular basis.

  1. This is such a pretty card Fiona. I haven't used the blendabilities yet, but you've got a lovely effect here. I have this stamp set on order so will give it a go when it arrives :o) Julie H
