It’s the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the matching Blossom Punch, both due out in the Occasions Mini Catalog that debuts on January 4th. If you haven’t seen these yet, you have the opportunity to pre-order them as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (along with everything else in the Occasions Mini Catalog, plus earning free Sale-A-Bration stamp sets on your order…).
Here’s my card with the new Mixed Bunch stamp set:

I’ve been a fan of this monochromatic color scheme lately — here’s another card with similar paper colors included. The background of the card is River Rock, and the accents are Basic Black and Whisper White. The Designer Series Paper is the First Edition Specialty Paper, which actually has a Very Vanilla background.
Usually it’s best not to mix neutrals (like white & vanilla) but here the vanilla is like a bus stop on the color route from River Rock to Whisper White, so it seems to work out okay.
You can see the Houndstooth Embossing Folder on the Basic Black layer, and peeking through from the inside of the card. The edge is dry embossed with the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Occasions Mini Catalog — available January 4th), and then cut with the Adorning Accents Edgelit (also Occasions Mini Catalog). Don’t they produce a great detailed edge together!?
Anyway, this has been a Sneak Peek of things to come… unless you want to join my Stamping Family, you’ll need to wait til January 4th to place an order for these items. Until then, start working on that Wish List!
