I finally had a chance to play with my goodies from the new catalog. No, I don't have my new catalog yet but I was able to order from the preview brochure.
This is a new set called Embrace Life, it is a nice line art set. I stamped the large flower image in Black StazOn and used my Ruby Red ink pad and a blender pen to color it in. I added a black brad from our Vintage Brads. I also stamped the leaves in River Rock on the River Rock card stock. The striped paper is from the Ginger Blossom Designer Paper set, I stamped the smaller flowers on it in Ruby Red. The greeting is a RUB ON!!!!! Yes, that is correct, I said RUB ON, Stampin' Up! will have a number of rub on sets in the new catalog. You get a sheet of white and a sheet of black that, of course, coordinate with a number of our stamp sets!!!!!
I also used the rub ons on a small hexagon jar that I purchased at Specialty Bottle. It is a size 4 which is the perfect size for a small gift of chocolate. I used the white rub ons for this project.
I used rub ons around the bottom of the jar and for the flower on the lid. I added some Black Grosgrain ribbon around the mouth of the jar.
Here is a close up of the lid. I used the Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch and my Coluzzle for the card stock pieces on the lid. I used my Piercing Tool to add the holes to the scallop and then dotted the holes with my White Gel Pen. The flower is a white rub on and I added a Real Red Brad to the center to finish it off.
This is a side view of the rub ons going all around the jar. This was my first experience using rub ons and I thought it was pretty easy to get them onto the jar. I filled it with red and white Reese's Pieces.......yum yum
Here is another jar, but it doesn't use the rub-ons. It took me all of five minutes to make and I filled it with Mint M&M's.

Well, that is it for today, Happy Stampin', Barb
