Welcome to this month’s Di’s Country INKers blog hop! You’ve probably hopped on over from the fabulous Diana Gibbs. Wasn’t her project fun?!
Our theme this month is ‘Anything That’s New’ from the about-to-be-released 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to start playing with brand spankin’ new product a month before the catalog releases, and today I’ve chosen to show you the new Sea Street stamp set and coordinating Maritime Designer Series Paper – take a look!
I am absolutely in love with the classic Real Red, Whisper White and Night of Navy with a little Coastal Cabana color scheme in this DSP pack! Both the DSP and the Sea Street stamp set can be used in masculine nautical-themed projects as well as for whimsical kids cards with the cute star fish, and a smiling octopus.
I first saw this stamp set at the Catalog Premier Party in April.(Another perk of being a demonstrator..) I was sitting next to my new stampin’ friend, Trenna. Of course, we were ooh-ing and aah-ing over all the new stuff we were being shown. When this set appeared, I said, “Oh my gosh, look at those cute crabs!!” Trenna leaned over and whispered, “Um, Barb, those are lobsters…” Well, this gave us both a fit of the giggles and just like laughing in church, made it all the funnier. So naturally, the first card I made with this set HAD to have some of the crabs, I mean lobsters on it! Ha..
The Sea Street stamp set and Maritime DSP will be available for you to order tomorrow at noon (mountain time) when the catalog goes live! If you don’t already have your copy, give me a holler. The catalog is free, you just need to cover the postage, but if you place an order of $50 or more, I’ll refund you the postage!
Thanks for spending a little time with me today! Now off you go to see what Kathya has in store for you! If you get lost at any time, the links to all of the participants are below.

Wow Barb, this card is glorious! All the details and those cute little lobsters – just great!
Thank you, Mary! This one just seemed to come together all on its own – gotta love Stampin’ Up! and how easy they make it for us, eh?
Wow Barb! You totally made me rethink that I should be getting this stamp set! What a super cute card! Love the color combo, will definitely have to try it out! Great job again on the blog buttons! I’m always happy when I see your creations! Can’t wait for next month!
Awww, you’re so sweet to say that. Think I need to mail you a hug! I can really see getting a lot of use out of this set – so many possibilities…
I too, love anything red, white and blue. One day I will have a americana room!!! Great project!!!
