New Cattie Sneak Peek Mojo

Today is Mojo Monday and do I have a treat for you!  The new catalog debuts July 1st, but as a SU! Demonstrator, I have the chance to buy a selection of sneak peek products a month early! Today's Mojo Monday Challenge sketch was PERFECT to showcase one of the gorgeous new Designer Series Papers in the new cattie - Pocketful of Posies.  I just love the colors, variety in designs, well, everything!

I also took the opportunity to use a new stamp set, Pennant Parade as well as the coordinating Petite Pennants punch. Create cute pennants for your cards or... a vase by trimming the point off with your Paper Snips!  That's just what I did for today's challenge. What colors are my card base and mat, you may be wondering? They are two of our new In Colors for 2011-2013, Wisteria Wonder (the pale purple we've all been missing) and Lucky Limeade (perfect for those missing Kiwi Kiss).

Wondering how the pennant looks on a card? I love it the idea - great for new baby cards, birthday cards, thank you cards... just about anything!  Pennants just seem to say "CELEBRATE!!!" :) And yes, the card base is another new In Color, Island Indigo!  Perfect for those of us mourning the loss of Taken with Teal :)

What about an ice cream cone? Use the 'waffle' design triangle punch to create your cone and the cupcake top from Build-a-Cupcake (carried over from the 2011 Occasions Mini and appearing in the new cattie) to make the perfect ice cream cone. Are you loving this Designer Paper? It's one of the new hostess products you can choose from :)

Stay tuned for more ideas of what you can make with Pennant Parade and the coordinating punch.  I love versatile stamps and accessories like these and I've got ideas galore :)

Don't forget that many wonderful accessories and stamp sets are retiring!  Be sure to get yours before they're gone forever on June 30th.  Take a look in my Online Store.  Hope these cards have gotten your creative juices flowing and keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
