Nature's Prints for the 2022/23 Annual Catalogue Debut

nature's prints for the annual catalogue debut

 My 20222/23 Annual Catalogue Pre0rder arrived last Friday and this is my debut design! It's using products from the Sun Prints Suite*, and specifically the Nature's Prints Bundle*, the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper* and the Fern 3D Embossing Folder*! I have to admit being heavily influenced by some colours and techniques used by Gail Ellis of Blue Rose Paper Treasures from her beautiful designs using the same suite, but who wouldn't be!

*New products from the 2022/23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, available starting May 3, 2022.

I was drawn to this suite because when our children were little we would often buy this kind of cyanotype paper and spend lots of fun summer days creating nature prints with all kinds of plants and fungi. The kids loved it! Basically you placed a leaf or flower or mushroom on the cyanotype paper and left it in the sun and it would create a print of the object similar to what you see on this DSP.

  • I built my card on a Night of Navy card base and added a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Gray Granite cardstock embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder*.
  • On a piece of Basic White, I heat embossed the foliage images from the Nature's Prints stamp set* in white embossing powder, then I used Pool Party ink to ink blend with the Blender Brush to reveal these images. I used a stitched rectangle die to die cut this layer and mounted it on the Gray Granite layer close to the right side as shown.
  • I added a 1 1/2" strip of the Sun Prints DSP* down the left side.
  • I stamped the 3 foliage images again in Petal Pink, Gray Granite and Pool Party, then die cut them using the coordinating Natural Prints dies*.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, in Starry Sky ink* and die cut it with a label from the Natural Prints dies*. I added the 3 foliage pieces behind the sentiment and popped the whole thing up with dimensionals on the card front.
  • With a couple of glue dots I added a bow made from Pool Party 3/8" Sheer Ribbon. I added some clear polished dots.

In the meantime, I haven't been keeping track of all the retiring products from the old 2021/22 Annual Catalogue and I was shocked at all the stamp sets that have sold out. Normally they are the last to go as SU keeps producing them up to a certain date. Apparently not this year. I have created a PDF form to share with you showing all the retiring products and anything marked in red is now out of stock and unavailable! Gone for Good! If there is anything else in that list that you want, my advice is to order it ASAP! Also, prices are going up for many basics such as paper and ink in the new catalogue so if you order now, you can save yourself some moolah! You can either order through my 
Online Store or contact me!

Here's the updated retiring list: Retiring List
