Just The Cover and Nothing But The Cover!  That’s all I can share with you from the Stampin’ Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalog until June 1 when the catalog launches.  So let’s do a little stroll through a few of my favorite cover projects.  They also just happen to highlight a few favorite products in the new catalog.  Imagine that!

Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog Cover for Stampin' With Pixie Blog Post "Just the 2018-19 Annual Catalog Cover and Nothing But The Cover!"

Isn’t this a beautiful cover?  It features projects made with new colors from the Color Revamp and some of the many many brand new products.  I’ve selected four of these projects as the focus for this post.  Why did I pick them?  Well first because the colors caught my eye and second because they make use of few of my favorite new goodies.  Let’s take a closer look.

The Darling Label Punch Box Card Featuring Lovely Lipstick

The Darling Label Punch Box greeting card featuring images and sentiments from the Stampin' Up! Darling Label Punch box stamp set and the Lovely Lipstick Designer Series Paper. This project is one of several displayed on the front cover of the 2018-19 Annual Catalog.

Lovely Lipstick is such a vibrant color.  It just draws you in.  Make this 3″x3″ card using the Darling Label Punch Box set.  The Darling Label Punch Box set is unique.  It contains: two Classic Stampin’ spots in Grapefruit Grove and Night of Navy; the Darling Label 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, the Darling Label Punch, a clear stamp block AND a beautiful storage tin in Night of Navy and copper.  The card sentiment is punched out using the Darling Label Punch.   When you look closely you see the card front is decorated with labels punched from Lovely Lipstick Cardstock.  Decorative accents include a strip of the 2018-2020 In Color 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper and the yummy Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.  Did you notice the Glitter Enamel Dots?  Nestled behind the card you catch glimpses of the Delicately Detailed Laser-Cut Designer Series Paper colored with Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin’ Ink.  Altogether just scrumptious.  Cannot wait to get my hands on the Darling Label Punch Box set!

Grapefruit Grove Beautiful Layers Gift Tag

Grapefruit Grove Beautiful Layers gift tag featured on the front of the Stampin' Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalog. Made using the Beautiful Layers Thinlits dies, Rooted in Nature Stamp Set, Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and various embellishments.


On we go with our “Just The Cover and Nothing But The Cover!” project stroll.  Make the gift tag using the Beautiful Layers Thinlits (part of the Beautiful Promenade Bundle) and Rooted In Nature Stamp Set (part of the Nature’s Poem Suite).  The Beautiful Layers Thinlts dies set contains this tag topper and several other dies INCLUDING… ta dah…an envelope liner die!  Happy Dance! The textured background is from the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  The stamped and die cut tree comes from the Rooted In Nature Bundle.  Don’t miss the Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and the Silver & Whisper White Baker’s Twine on the top of the tag.  The cute little paper clip is from the Share What You Love Embellishments Kit that is currently available in the Share What You Love Early Release Promotion.  Peeking out from the edge of the photo is one of the lovely Blossoms Elements embellishments (part of the Garden Impressions Suite).

Coastal Cabana Darling Label Punch Box Tag

Round gift tag in Stampin' Up! Coastal Cabana teal made using Stampin' Up! Stitched Shapes dies, Darling Label Punch Box stamp set and punch and the Tea Room Ribbon Combo pack.

Oh Coastal Cabana welcome home!  Coastal Cabana is a much beloved returning color.  (Click here to read about the 2018 Color Revamp.)  Isn’t this gift tag just adorable?  Die cut the Coastal Cabana Cardstock tag using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.  Create the sentiment accent using the Darling Label Punch Box set.  Did I mention Darling Label is a fav?  Did you catch that?  The oh-so-cute accents include the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls from the Share What You Love Suite and the copper-trimmed Coastal Cabana 1/8″ ribbon. *sigh*  Just above the tag is a Coastal Cabana-colored doily from the Colored Doilies set.

Gorgeous Grape and Healing Hugs Rose Accent

A gorgeous dark purple (Gorgeous Grape) hand-stamped rose accent created using the Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs stamp and Rooted in Nature Stamp Sets.

Go ahead and gasp at the beauty of this accent piece.  You could frame this and make it home decor.  This is the last project in our “Just The Cover and Nothing But The Cover!” stroll.  It’s a showstopper for sure.  The flower and underlying petals are from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set.  The rose image is a DistINKtive stamp.  DistINKtive stamps use a patent-pending technology to lay down ink at different intensities to create a photo-realistic image.  The surrounding leaves are from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set.  The embellishment is a Glitter Enamel Dot..  A little bit of fussy cutting around the flower creates an absolutely amazing embellishment or gift box topper.
