Samples from the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration!

Hello again! As promised, I'd like to share a few cards made with products from the new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure. These cards were designed by my upline, Laura Barto, and my "uppity-upline," Glenda Travelstead. Glenda held an event a couple of weeks ago where we got to make 20 different cards using new stamp sets and papers. It was lots of fun! So without further ado, here they are!

Petal Potpourri birthday designed by Dianne Sisneros

First up is this beautiful birthday card made with two new sets, Petal Potpourri and Butterfly Basics. There is also a coordinating punch for the flowers which can be purchased separately, or in a bundle with the stamp set. And isn't that Designer Paper gorgeous? Perfect for wedding cards, don't you think?

Stampin' Up! products used for this card:
Stamp sets: Petal Potpourri, Butterfly Basics
Paper: Sahara Sand and Whisper White cardstock, Something Borrowed DSP
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: White and Early Espresso embossing powders, Tea Lace Doilies, Flower Medallion punch, 3/4" circle punch

You Plus Me Valentine

Next up is this cute, simple Valentine. This stamp set can be purchased in a bundle with a stack of designer paper that includes the designs you see here. It's a "mini" stack - 48 double-sided sheets measuring 4-1/2" by 6-1/2" - perfect for card making! Many of the prints in the stack are black & white and lend themselves beautifully to coloring with either our Stampin' Write Markers or Blendabilities.

Stamp set: You Plus Me
Paper: Real Red and Whisper White cardstock, Stacked With Love DSP Stack
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Real Red

Painted Petals Thank You
This card would make a thoughtful thank you, or with a different stamp, a birthday card. The Painted Petals suite includes a stamp set (available in wood-mount, clear-mount, and photopolymer), an embossing folder, and beautiful designer paper. One of the designs could even be framed on its own - it looks like a painting!

Sale-A-Bration runs until March 31, and you can choose one item from the brochure for each $50 you spend in any current catalog. This card uses three different items, but if you have a wish list like mine, that won't be a problem! Another way to get more Sale-A-Bration items is to join Stampin' Up! now.
