Waves of Beauty
Updated: Mar 6, 2022
You'd think it would be a rare thing that Stampin' Up!® surprises you with the most gorgeous products you can imagine. But it turns out they've done it again. These are BEAUTIFUL! New products are now available that both surprise and excite me - something that Stampin' Up! has actually been able to accomplish often. How do they do that???
The Waves of the Ocean Collection that is now available is unlike any product we've had before. The collection includes the following:
Waves of Inspiration stamp set
Waves of Inspiration Bundle (both the stamp set and dies for 10% off)
Waves of the Ocean 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper
Blue Foils 12" x 12" Specialty Paper
Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels
This Collection doubles as both an early release and a while supplies last sales period. The Waves of Inspiration stamp set and Waves Dies will be available in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog starting on May 3, but both are now available for purchase! The consumable products - the papers and rhinestones - are only available while supplies last. Don't delay! I want to make sure you get what you want because these products are GORGEOUS!
When I was preparing for What's Up! Stampers? this past week, I knew I wanted to use these products, but I wasn't sure where to start because I hadn't played with them yet. So off I went to Pinterest for inspiration! When I found a pretty card by Linda Cullen, I absolutely loved the layout and went to work using the layout while changing some things to make it different. The end result was stunning, and only because the products are just so gorgeous that they can't help but make pretty cards.

Blue Foils 12" x 12"

The Designer Series Paper, the vellum, the foil sheets, the dies, the rhinestones. Everything is just perfect. I love how the two waves dies overlay and offset each other and over the wave stamp. I stamped the wave in Night of Navy ink, then used the blue foil paper to add detail to the wave, then finally used white for the top layer. I love the sentiment on the sweet stitched label die, and the rhinestones finish the card off just perfectly. Watch me make this card here.

I often end my blog posts with "Stamping blessings, Amy," and as I type this, I am reflective of all of those stamping blessings - most especially you. On Saturday morning, March 5, we will be celebrating the 100th Episode of Stamp Together Saturday (STS)! STS started on March 28, 2020, when we were all at home, wondering how long we'd be isolated from each other. We used STS as a way to bring us together, stamping and interacting to get through the long weeks. What a blessing STS has been to me, as I'm hoping it has been to many of you. 100 episodes later, we continue to meet on Saturdays, making cards together and chit chatting. Join me any Saturday at 9:30am Central time - it'll brighten your day!
