SUDSOL New Catalog Blog Tour!!!!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to our SUDSOL (Stampin'Up! Demonstrators Sharing OnLine) New Catalog Blog Tour.  If you're a Stampin'Up! Demonstrator and would like to learn more about SUDSOL or get a free trial, click on the link to the right of my blog to check it out.

Today I'm showcasing some of our new stamp sets and products.  When I first saw this Boys Will Be Boys stamp set, this is the card I pictured in my mind.  I love how the Gorgeous Grunge set makes a cammo background with only 2 colors of ink and the image lets me color a bit with our new Blendabilities Markers - woohoo!!!

I used the Old Olive and Skin Tone Assortment for my parachute army guy.

The Lovely As A Tree set is an oldie, but a goody. Those tree tops give it just the right umph!
Supplies used:
Boys Will Be Boys, Gorgeous Grunge & Lovely As A Tree stamp sets
Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso & Whisper White  card stock
Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso & Memento Ink
Mossy Meadow 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Old Olive & Skin Tone Assortment Blendabilities

My next card uses the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  This one struck me as Art Deco, so I used silver and black for my color theme (I'm not really a gold girl, but it would look striking in gold and black too).  Kinda Eclectic is one of my favorite top 10 new stamp sets.

The dots on the bottom of the card were inked in Basic Gray and stamped off once for that silver tone.  I also used Silver EP for the starburst and butterfly.

The tag piece uses the Scallop Tag Topper Punch with the White CS cuts at 3-5/8" x 1-1/8" and the Black CS cut at 3-3/4" x 1-1/4" and both ends centered in the punch for a smaller, layered tag.  

I just added a bit of Black StazOn ink on the pearls for a little more pop.  
Supplies used:
Kinda Eclectic stamp set
Basic Black, Whisper White card stock and Silver Foil Sheets
VersaMark, Basic Gray & Black StazOn ink, Pearl Basic Jewels
Scallop Tag Topper Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, 1/8" Silver Ribbon, Silver EP & Heat Tool

My 3rd project is a CASE of my card just above this.  I just wanted to show how you can take almost the same card, change out the colors and move it around a bit and get a whole new look.

This card using the same CS measurements, but different colors and a bit of a change in the layout.  

I used both butterfly images in the stamp set for this one.  
Supplies used:
Kinda Eclectic stamp set
Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray & Whisper White card stock
Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight ink, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon, Pearl Basic Jewels
Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch
