Paper Players Challenge: Mosaic Madness and Lots of Fun New Toys!

Happy Friday!  I've been so excited for this day to arrive.  Not only is it Friday, which means the weekend is just a few hours away, but today is a HUGE day with Stampin' Up!  Today is the release of the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog and there are so many awesome new products I can't wait to try out.  On top of that, this year there is an overlap in the catalogs so for today only, you can order from the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog, Spring Catalog, and 2013-2014 Annual Catalog so you can get all the retiring and new items you want at the same time (love it!!!!).  For today's Paper Players sketch challenge I decided to show off several of the new products that you can get today.  This card is actually really simple, the cardbase is Strawberry Slush (one of the five new In Colors) and I added a layer of Pool Party.  The designer series paper is also new and from the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP and the patterns and colors are so fresh and fun.
The upper right hand panel was made by embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Big Shot and the NEW Modern Mosaic Textured Embossing Folder.  Next I used the new Mosaic Madness stamp set to set some of the quatrefoil images and then punched them out with the Mosaic Punch (you know how much I love stamp sets and matching punches and now we matching embossing folders (I'm in heaven!).  The greeting is also from a new stamp set, Really Good Greetings.  The final touch was to add the button and Island Indigo Baker's Twine bow.  Now you may be asking about where that button came from, it's another fun new product, it's Simply Pressed Clay and the Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds.  That's right, now you can make your own buttons and flowers anytime you want and in any color you want (for this button I made it with the standard white clay and then colored the formed button with a marker.  I've been having lots of fun playing with this new product and I love how it doesn't take a lot of clay to make so you can get lots of creations out of each package (very cost effective).
I hope this card has excited you for some of the awesome new products so go check out the new annual catalog so you can see what all the fun's about.
Enjoy your day and have a great weekend,
