New Catalogue Inspiration


I can’t believe it’s time for Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue time again!! Where does the time go?? But I am not complaining who doesn’t like, who am I kidding LOVE, a new Stampin’ Up! catalogue!!

Since November I have been sharing with you some cards made using some new products. Well today I am going to be previewing 6 projects that’ll be shared with you in more detail over the coming weeks.

1  //  Balloon Adventures Box – I just love this stamp set, thinlits dies and ribbon from the Party Animal Suite.  This box is made using the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits Dies, the largest die in the set can be used to create flat card fronts, a pop up piece for the inside of the card or box like mine below.


2  //  Up & Away Card in a Box – I think this is my favourite bundle from the new catalogue.  This is the Lift My Up Stamp Set and the Up & Away Thinlits Dies or more simply the Lift Me Up Bundle.  And it can be paired with the Carried Away Designer Series Paper that can be found in the SAB Catalogue.  I just love this box it can be given as a gift to a very deserving friend or be a decoration in your house.  The sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set.



3  //  Club 93 Cousins Scrapbook Page – I am lucky to come from a large family where I have me and 2 of my cousins are born in the same year so we have lots of photos of the three of us.  For this scrapbook page I wanted to create a watercoloured background and I love taking colour inspiration from the colours used in Designer Series Paper.  I knew that I wanted to use the Mint Macaron paper from the Blooms & Bliss DSP.  So my colours I used on the background is Mint Macaron, Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry.  I added touches of the Copper Embossing Powder to finish it off.


4  //  Super Duper Birthday Card – I just love how the scrapbook page background turned out so I decided to the give it ago for the background of this card.  This time I used Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo.  I finally got my hands on the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder so I had to use it.  The sentiment is from the Super Duper Stamp Set, I stamped the sentiment twice and cut out the middle part pop it up.  I just the love the shimmer you can see from the Shimmery White Card Stock.



5  //  Penned & Painted, Blooms & Bliss Card – This card is really simple and doesn’t need a sentiment because I think it could cover any occasion.  I used the Blooms & Bliss DSP for the background and the hexagon shaped die from the Window Box Thinlits Dies.  I added the flower and leaves from the Penned & Painted Stamp Set.



6  //  Watermelon Wonder Folder Top Card – I love creating the folder top detail to my cards using the Envelope Punch Board but I have never done a double folder top.  Once I had finished the card with the sentiment I thought it needed something else… So I added in the lace detail with the Delicate Details Stamp Set from the SAB Catalogue and another piece of Watermelon Wonder and I couldn’t help it I had to emboss it with the Copper powder and the Hexagons Embossing Folder.



I hope you enjoyed seeing a snippet some of the projects coming up on my blog.  I can’t wait to share them with you in a bit more detail…

And until next time… Happy Stampin’,
