Loving the New Stamp Sets

Today I took out some of the new stamp sets and colors from Stampin' Up's latest catalog to make some cards with.  I haven't done much stamping for the past few months, and it felt so good to stamp and use my Big Shot machine! 

This bright and summery looking card was made using the Botanical Blossoms set with the matching framelits.  It seems that using banners with words in them is a new trend in paper crafting.  I used the new in-color paper called Peekaboo Peach for the card background.  The idea is from Dena Rekow that I found on Pinterest.  

When I first opened the new stamping catalog, this was the first set that caught my eye!  I just love the little birds!  I used the new color Sweet Sugarplum for this card. I normally wouldn't think of using a purplish color for birds, but I love how it looks with the Soft Suede and Tip Top Taupe.  I copied her idea for the burlap ribbon strip across the bottom of the image and love the effect that it has. 

I found this idea by Create It With Stamps.  The website is in German, but her samples are very nice.

 Lately I love all things with mason jars.  I guess that is why I wanted this new set, Jars of Love.  It has 3 sizes of jars in it.  For this card, I put some vellum on the jar image to make it look like glass.  I love how it looks on the card.  Purple flowers add some color in the background and the other images are cut out using the matching framelit set.  I used the new color, Dapper Denim for the card base.  Don't you just love the colorful flowers in this jar?  Juan Ambida from Australia made the idea that inspired me for this card. 

We made these three cards at my stamping class this week.  I always have the ladies vote which item that they liked the best.  At first, it was the Bird card, but then after the votes came in, one person changed her mind and voted for the Jar card.  I guess the Mason Jars win this round.  :)

Which one do you like the best?
