Still waiting... Plus a Giveaway

Hello & thanks for stopping by!! I finally got my catalog from Stampin' Up and since I have not gotten my order yet, I decided to case a card from it. The card is on page 177. I changed it up just a bit. Instead of a pink heart (that's not like me, right) I chose red with the chocolate and some kraft. I also added the swirl form the Nestabilities doodle parts, layered with a felt heart and a button. The background was embossed using the forest branches by Cuttlebug.

So what kind of things did you order from the NEW catalog? Got a favorite card you want to case? Leave me a comment and you will be entered to win a custom watermark. I will announce the winner on Saturday, February 14th.

Have a wonderful week!

I think the quest should be more like...what did I NOT order from the new catalog!! haha I ordered all the new ribbon (LOVE ribbon), the texture plates, mainly accessories from the back of the catalog. I keep telling myself...I have enough stamps! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Sweet card Jen!

Cheryl said...

Great card!

I have only seen the catalog once and haven't ordered anything from it yet. When I can afford to, I think I will order Trendy Trees.

Janet said...

Love this card--the flourish is a nice touch. I haven't even seen the new catalog yet. I'm hoping it will be dropped off this week. I can hardly wait. I need inspiration from some new stamps.

I ordered a bunch of stuff just last week....a bunch of the new DSP, new brads and buttons, ribbon, Fifth Avenue Floral, Bird on a Branch, almost all of the SAB stuff, and a few other odds and ends.

I love the textured paper, but haven't ordered yet. I don't have a new catalog so don't know what card I'd like to case. Love your cards!

Great color combo, Jennifer. It looks great with that big, bold red heart!

I haven't seen the new catalog yet but a friend is having a party soon and am thinking of getting the Lovely as a Tree set that has been out for a long time and just never did get. Love all the samples I have seen of it.

I love this card jennifer. It's the little things that strike me, like the flourish behind the button and the little hearts. I look forward to them all.

Darling card Jen! Love the layout and the cute little hearts down the side!

Jenn AKA Cinderellie on Splitcoast said...

Hi Jen, Darling card! Love all the little details! I finally recieved my catalog and i ordered the ribbon slot punch, Cupcakes and Fashion Forward roller stamps.
What are you going to order now that you finally recieved your catalog :)!

artfulwhimsies said...

I am going to order the top notes die, since I am probably the only person that doesnt have it yet. And of course lots of other fun stuff.

Chris said...

Great card...
My wish list includes the top note die and the ribbon slot punch. Love those special punches!

Rachel said...

Love your card colors. And that Doodle parts swirl is so cute!!

My poor catalog is so neglected...I really haven't even looked through it yet! Yes...a travesty...I know. But, when I had about 30 seconds, I did turn to the page with all the punches. I think a border punch is tops on my list.

Ellie said...

You mean what else do I have to order from the catty! ROFL... I need some more Big Shot dies I have been seeing such cute samples getting weak in the knees must get them all! :)

Trish said...

So far..... the Big Shot, scallop envie, top note, petal card, birds and blooms dies, paper- Rockabilly and
Urban Oasis, Choc. corduroy buttons, and two decor elements!! Oh and the manhattan flower stamp set- whatever it's called!!
I'd love a watermark! I wouldn't know how to place it on my pictures though! Thanks for sharing your inspiring work!

Silke said...

Jennifer - what a beautiful case!!! Love the big heart and the colors you chose!!!

Aunt Spicy said...

Wow, that is a great card! I haven't seen the catalogue...I am a little afraid of paper but have tried a few things that have been fun!

mamia said...

I love the set Trendy Trees and all the bird sets.

Dolce Deb's Designs said...

I love your card. I am eyeing the sizzix die cut box. I am waiting for some extra cash to order the die cut plus a few othe goodies. Of course I want to take advantage of the Sell-a-Bration free sets too.

Thanks for the chance to win hope you have a great week.

Nancy said...

Love your card...the paper is gorgeous!
I don't have a current SU! catty yet so I don't have a card to case.
Thanks for the chance to win a watermark.

Lisa Foster said...

Love your card!!! It's just gorgeous! I like many of the new sets...Thought and Prayers is my fave (although I wish it wasn't double-mounted)...my order is gonna have to wait a couple more weeks..I'll probably completely change my mind by then...LOL

Anonymous said...

I think I look at the catalog daily! I am waiting for my order and I bought some of the Sizzix dies and embosslits. I also just bought some of the nestibilities that you usually use - wow they are nice! Love your work!

My last order just included whisper white and kraft cardstock but I know that the new punch and the corduroy buttons will be finding a good home!

Vicki Wizniuk said...

I just came across your blog and love it! I've added it to my favorites list... Hmmm... actually my order was supposed to be here today, I can't remember all I ordered, but I do remember ordering the Top Note die for the Big Shot. Oh, and the backgrounds embossing folders. Too cool! Can't wait to try them out. I'll definitely be back to see your new creations! :o)

Debi said...

Oh my! What don't I like in the new catalog? I think the majority of my new orders have been embellishments. I've had fun playing with some of the new dies for the Big Shot.

Isn't it funny...I had no idea your card was CASEd. Even when someone changes the color scheme, it still looks like an original design. Great card.
