Hello Stampin’ Friends,
It’s getting closer to Christmas, a busy time for all of us I’m sure. So I hope you can escape the craziness and join me for a minute… kick back and relax because I would like to show you a sneak peek from the Sale-a-Bration and Occasions 2015 Catalogs!
I love that Stampin’ Up! is always right on track with the “hot” techniques and latest products for stamping, and I’m excited to share with you the NEW Chalkboard Paper in the Occasions catalog. Cool right? Well hang onto your socks because they also brought us “Chalk Ink” pads!
Here is my card share today … This is one of the cards that I did as a Make & Take for my Star’s members for our Christmas party this year.
This paper is a bit heavier and has a smooth grain that pairs perfectly with the Chalk ink and our White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. The chalk ink is permanent and creates a realistic chalk effect. You can find these on page 25 of the new Occasions catalog.
Also from the Occasions catalog is our “Birthday Bash” Specialty Designer Series Paper …. I picked out the Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry colors from the DSP as my base colors because I thought it was gender neutral. It’s always nice to have cards around that can be used for anyone.
The Chalkboard paper really is the focal point and it highlights our greeting which comes from the “Big Day” stamp set. Yes, you already got a sneak peek from this set on Saturday (click here to view).
I love stamp sets that have a greeting and words to match that I can put inside …
Ice cream and cake … it’s making me hungry! I think I should have added some designer paper to the inside to add a bit more color! Hmmm … that is why I like stamping with my friends, we share ideas and end up with even better cards! Right ladies!!
Hope you enjoyed the break and I’ll see you tomorrow.
Till then, have a wonderful day ~
