It's Sunday Showcase time!  Unfortunately, I haven't had much of a chance to play with the new catalog products yet, but I still have some new projects to share with you courtesy of Stampin' Up! 

Today, I'm doing a little preview of some of the amazing samples you'll find at the Stampin' Up! Pinterest site!  They have added dozens of brand new ideas to get your creativity flowing!  Since we're heading into summer soon, here are 10 flower-themed cards that I absolutely had to pin!

You've got this

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Artistic Expression Board.  Color combo: Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight & Whisper White.

#1 You've Got Good Things—You've Got This (clear, wood) was one of the first sets I had my eye on in the new catalog!  I LOVE the cross-hatch background and gorgeous flower.  Looks like they've watercolored the image with new Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush In Color inks.  

Also Features: Tea Lace Doilies & Gold Sequin Trim.

Endless thanks 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Thank You Board.  Color combo: Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight & Whisper White.

#2 Endless Thanks Petite Blooms—If you liked the concept behind the Endless Birthday Wishes two-step stamp set, you'll also like this new "thank you" set called Endless Thanks!  I love their use of the adorable, petite flower from the set, especially on the envelope flap!  So cute!  The faux-washi tape is created from the striped pattern in the Brights Collection DSP Stack. This is a hot trend right now…you'll see the stripes on lots of today's projects!  I believe that the notebook paper and white sequins are from a Project Life card kit and accessory pack, but I can't tell which one.

Wild about flowers & endless thanks 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Thank You Board.  Color combo: Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive, Tip Top Taupe & Whisper White.

#3 Wild About Flowers Thanks—I'm always crazy about silhouettes, so I know I'll be ordering Wild About Flowers, a pretty set of silhouetted wildflowers.  It's a two-step stamp, so you can stamp the stems and blooms separately.  There are also some lovely, two-step, congratulatory sentiments in the set, but this card features a greeting from the Endless Thanks set again.  There's that striped paper again, too, from the In Color DSP Stack!  And, look at the fun new Gold Metallic Thread for a soft, shimmering accent.

Watercolor words 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Artistic Expression Board.  Color combo: Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz & Whisper White.

#4 Watercolor Words Hooray—The look of watercolor is another hot trend right now.  The Watercolor Words set features a nice variety of expressions, along with some fun accent shapes.  Here, the word is embossed with white, then embellished with a ruffled Tea Lace Doily border. 

Also features: Banners Framelits & Old Olive Baker's Twine.

Garden in bloom 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Artistic Expression Board.  Color combo: Island Indigo, Old Olive & Whisper White.

#5 Garden In Bloom Watercolor—Here's another pretty watercolor-style set called Garden In Bloom.  It looks like they stamped off for the bold image, then stamped the shaded image over the top in the full color to highlight it.  The patterned paper is from the coordinating English Garden DSP.  They added some new Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine as an accent for some texture.

Timeless love 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Love & Sympathy Board.  Color combo: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Very Vanilla.

#6 Timeless Love Smile—When I first saw the Timeless Love (clear, wood) set, I labeled it as a "wedding" set that I wouldn't need to order.  But, Stampin' Up! has shared some samples that prove just how versatile this set can be!  I love the watercolored image on this card—so sweet!  And did you notice that they used a Metallic Foil Doilies flipped over to the white backside?  How clever!

Also Features: Gold Sequin Trim, Circle Collection Framelits & Brushstrokes (clear, wood) background stamp.

Timeless love border 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Love & Sympathy Board.  Color combo: Mint Macaron, Basic Black & Whisper White.

#7 Timeless Love Curvy Border—Here is more proof of the versatility of the Timeless Love (clear, wood) set!  Isn't this curvy border awesome?!  It's just the curved floral image stamped twice in opposite directions, then carefully fussy-cut with the Paper Snips.  Love it!  There's that striped In Color DSP Stack paper!  This time, it's accented with Silver Sequin Trim.  Cool!

Whole lot of lovely 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Host Sets Board.  Color combo: Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise & Whisper White.

#8 Whole Lot of Fabulous—The Host Sets in this year's catalog are some of the best I've seen!  This sweet card was created with The Whole Lot of Lovely (clear, wood) set. The tiny image was colored with markers for the multicolor effect.  The striped Neutrals Collection DSP Stack paper just peeks out from under the sentiment to give a little extra pop!  Don't forget to add a little detail to your envelopes, too!

Watercolor wash 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Artistic Expression Board.  Color combo: Soft Sky, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive & Whisper White.

#9 Watercolor Wash Happy Hello—Talk about sweet!  I couldn't pass up this quick & cute card with a fun color combo!  The background is stamped with the new Watercolor Wash (clear, wood) background stamp.  Add a sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set (this is a must-have greetings set, by the way), and add some simple embellishments, and you're done!  Doesn't it look fabulous with the matching envelope from the Regals Collection DSP Stack

Also Features: Itty Bitty Punch Pack flowers, Bird Builder Punch, Subtles Candy Dots & Neutrals Collection DSP Stack.

Best thoughts 

Pinned on the Stampin' Up! Host Sets Board.  Color combo: Cucumber Crush, Basic Black, Tip Top Taupe & Whisper White.

#10 Best Thoughts Layered Blossom—I think the Best Thoughts Host (clear, wood) set is stunning!  I love the way they layered parts of the flower on this card for a textured, 3D blossom.  The bottom layer is Vellum Card Stock.  You don't even need a lot of accents and embellishments with this dramatic focal point!
