RemARKably Creative Blog Tour: New Product Sneak Peeks!

For today's RemARKable Creative Blog Tour we are showcasing NEW PRODUCTS from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  You will to see a lot of sneak peeks some of the awesome new products!  The catalog will go live on June 1.  I  know you are going to love everything! 

I am loving the new Daisy Delight Stamp Set & Daisy Punch! I am getting daisy obsessed!  I had the hardest time deciding which color daisy I wanted to use with the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  I love purple so I finally decided on Wisteria Wonder for the daisy.

There are 6 NEW PRODUCTS used in my card today.
In addition to the Daisy Delight Stamp Set & Daisy Punch, I also used the Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper that is part of the Delightful Daisy Suite.   The bling in the center of the daisy is one of the new Clear Faceted Gems.  It is also part of the suite of products.   For the card base I used one of the new In Colors called Powder Pink. It is a beautiful soft pink! 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed today's card.
You will find the list of products used in my card at the bottom of the page with the new products listed first.

As you continue through the rest of the Blog Tour I know you are going to love all the 
new projects.  The 2017-2018 Annual Catalog is fabulous!  You can click on a name to take you to the other participants in today's RemARKable Creative Blog Tour.

The Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop: Berry Burst Daisies

Welcome to the Remarkable Ink Ink Big Blog Hop for may. This month our theme is "Sneak Peek".  We are giving you some sneak peeks of brand new products that will be in the upcoming 2017-18 Annual Catalog.  The catalog goes live on June 1. 

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Susan's Craft Room or you may have come from the person previous to me in the list.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup at the bottom of the post will help you move along from blog to blog so you will get to see all the awesome projects. 

I am loving the new Clear Faceted Gems!  The shimmer & shine doesn't show as well in a photo but they are gorgeous!   Because the new Daisy Delight Stamp Set is in photopolymer the daisy image is easy to line up to double up the number of petals.  It is stamped  the new Berry Burst Classic Stampin' Pad.  

The Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack is from a wonderful pack of papers in the 5 new In Colors. I also used a bit of the  the new Berry Burst Cardstock for the tag. It is a beautiful color!

The greeting is also from a new stamp set called Wood Words.  It is stamped on the Berry Burst cardstock using Basic Black Archival Stampin' Ink pad.  The Wood Words Stamp Set has the cute Wood Crate Framelits Dies that coordinate with it - and the two will be available as a bundle to save you money!  I used the tag framelit from the set to cut out the greeting. 

The greeting is attached to the top square with Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine - a returning product.  To give the card some dimension, the top two squares are popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Below are the dimensions for the paper cuts.
Card Base:  Basic Black - 11" x 4 1/4" (score at 5 1/2")
Fresh Florals Designer Series paper Stack:  4" x 5 1/4"
Flower Squares:  Basic Black: 2 1/4" square  Whisper White: 2 18" square

Playing With New Products!

I finally set aside time to pull out some of my pre-order products and use them.  So far I love everything I have received!  Time to mess up the craft room with new paper & ink!

I'm thrilled with the new In Colors! At first I wasn't so sure about Lemon Lime Twist but it has grown on me and now I like that one too!

VIDEOS: Sneak Peeks of the New Annual Catalog Products

Stampin' Up! has released some Sneak Peek videos to introduce some of the
new products from the upcoming 2017-18 Annual Catalog.

First up is a video featuring the Color Theory Suite.
This is an awesome suite!  This suite of products carries you through all four seasons of the year.  The Colorful Seasons stamp set has great sentiments to go along with the seasonal stamps.  The detailed thinlit dies that coordinate with the stamps are AWESOME!  I think these may become some of my favorite thinlits!  We live near the beach so I know my local customers are going to love that chair as much as I do!  Just wait till you see the Color Theory Paper Stack and Glitter Enamel Dots!  I love this entire suite!

The Wood Textures Suite has the awesome Wood Textured Designer Series paper Stack!  The papers are all wood patterns - on BOTH sides!  I don't usually buy a lot of the dies to make 3D projects but once I put together one of the little crates I was sold!  It is so quick and easy to put together - only 2 pieces!  I love it!  Lots of awesome in this suite!

This door thinlit in the At Home With You bundle is amazing!
 It is another pair of products that will carry you through all four seasons of the year. I can't wait to use it for cards all year long!  Brandi has some great tips in the video for using this set! 

Keep your eyes open for the little Boxwood Wreath near the end of the video!  Isn't it going to be fun designing different little wreaths for your doors?! You can unwind the wreath and use it on soooo many products! 

The Soft Sayings kit is a new "all inclusive it". That means that a stamp set is included in with the supplies for the projects! The stamp sets that are included in these type kits are always great ones! 

Stampin' Up! was so nice to do a short video of all the Designer Series paper Stacks!
You get to see each and every pattern in the video!  
In order of the video, the designer series paper stacks are
Petal Garden, Color Theory, Wood Textures and Fresh Florals. All of the
paper stacks are 6"x 6" except the Fresh Florals It is 12"x 12".

~Post in the comments below which of the products in the videos are YOUR favorites!~

More New Product Sneak Peeks!

 This Wood Textures Suite is going to be a FUN bundle to work with!
I don't make very many 3D products but the cute little crate thinlit that is in this bundle is so cute!  I've already thought of some cute ways to use it! 
It only has two parts so it goes together very fast!

The Designer Series paper stack is fabulous!  AND it is double sided so that the back side of the paper is the same wood but in a different shade!  This makes it great for using with the little crate thinlit because you have wood on both sides!

Just wait till you play with the neat Bronze Ribbon!  You can spread it apart to make it wider or use it as it is. If you spread it wider and decide you like it narrow, you just slide it between your fingers and it goes back to narrow again! Awesome product!

The Coffee Break Suite is going to be another fun bundle to work with !
It has awesome dies to coordinate with the stamps and Designer Series Paper.

Watch for more sneak peeks coming!
