Sneak Peek: Simply Stars

As promised, here is another Sneak Peek look at a new stamp set that is in the 2013-2014 Catalog that begins on May 31. 
Colors: Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, Coastal Cabana and Whisper White.  Stamps: Simply Stars and Really Good Greetings.  Accessories: Island Indigo Baker's Twine.
This was a quick and simple card I whipped up last evening in between making dinner and a wedding reception we needed to go to for our neighbor's daughter.  I didn't even use my Big Shot.  *GASP* I have been working on some stepped up cards the past few days so it was nice to get back to a quick and easy card.  Now that I look at it, it could have used some texture. 

Stars are one of my favorite shapes.  Stampin' Up! hasn't had a set devoted to stars in a couple of years so I was thrilled when we received this set at the Salt Lake Regionals. I will let you in on a little secret, the larger star shapes fit the old Star Punch that retired last year (or was it the year before?).  So if you held on to that punch, you will be excited to not have to hand cut those stars. 

Just two weeks until the new catalog goes live.  That also means that there are only 2 weeks to get the retiring products you want.  Don't miss out!  Click over to my online store and get those stamps before they are gone for good!

Love this card! Those stars are great! I was on the fence about this set, but I think I need it, especially since I do still have my star punches!

Super cute! I think I need this set. I still have my star punches too!

Oh yay - a preview! This card is so cute. I imagine these stars are going to be great for Patriotic cards as well. TFS!

Your card isn't that simple, and it is great! Love that it fits the old star punches, which I still have also :) SO glad we are getting a star themed set again.

Love it! I was wondering how you got that set the rest of us couldn't get!
