Today’s the day – new 2016 Occasion & Sale-A-Bration catalogs!

By | January 5, 2016

Today both the new 2016 Occasion and Sale-A-Bration catalogs go live, what an exciting day at Stampin Up. There are tons of great products in the new 2016 Occasions catalog and for the first time as part of the Sale-A-Bration catalog there will be limited time items (while supplies last), how cool is that.

While some demonstrators have been sharing a variety of sneak peeks over the last few weeks (as demo’s we can preorder product), I decided to wait until today for my big product debut using the Birthday Blooms Stamp set. Over the next few days I will share a few more ideas using some of the other products from the Birthday Bouquet product suite.

To make my card, I started with one of the flowers from the new Birthday Blooms Stamp set, using Versamark ink I stamped the image on Watercolor paper, sprinkled with Black Stampin’ Emboss powder and heat set. Next was the fun part, using my Aqua Painters I colored in the flowers and leaves, once dry, cut out the image with paper snips. If you compare stamp to my cutout you will notice I did not include part of the flower/leaves in the final image. Background for the card was made using the Hardwood stamp inked with Mint Macaron stamped on Mint Macaron card stock, backed with Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla. The sentiment, Happiest of Birthdays to you is also stamped with Mint Macaron on Mint Macaron for a subtle image, I wanted the flower to be the star of the card.

Revised card for 1.5

Thank you for stopping by today, hope you liked the card. Click on any of the images below for more product information and to place your online order.

Have a great day, Craft On!
