It is a “Sneak Peek” Day!  I am giving you a peek at one of the new stamp sets in the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog.  An advantage to being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is that we get to pre-order from the new catalogs.  It is like Christmas coming early!!!

The stamp set I am using is called Waterfront.  But I made it into a mountain scene instead.  I know….that sounds really odd.  So please let me know what you think of my creation.


Stampin' Up! Waterfront Jackie Beers, Stampinup, Waterfront, Jackiebeers

Waterfront, 144973


The card is a 4 X 4 base, but not a square layer.  I had stamped everything before I decided to cut it down but could not  cut the sides any further.  So it is not squared and not your eyesight playing games with you.

I used almost all of the greens in the SU collection to make the scenery.  I think it looks like some of the old time paintings with the white spaces.  Or it looks like a child’s drawing, LOL!

The sky is made by using the sponge roller and Marina Mist.  I like the texture the sponge roller gives for a sky.  The punches are also new, well one of them is.  The scalloped circle is one of two that are new to the 2018 Occasions Catalog as well.  I love punches for quick and easy.

I added the linen thread wrapped around the card as a little rustic/masculine touch.  I love giving some extra texture to my cards and this is a great way to do it.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.
