Simply Sunday: Simply Dandy!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today’s Simply Sunday looks at the Dandy Garden Suite from the New Mini (Occasions) Catalog. I will highlight the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack and the Cards & Envelopes! Talk about simple!

We will begin with the Cards and Envelopes … already printed to give you a head start, all you would really need is to add a sentiment and you’d be done!! But .. I didn’t stop there, I decided to add some of the embellishments from the Memories & More Card Pack.

You will get 20 card bases and 20 matching envelopes in the card & envelope kit (154301). Next I chose the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack … it includes 50 double sided cards in 3 different sizes, plus 4 sticker sheets!! The adhesive backed elements have 2 sheets of 2 different designs.

Although these have adhesive backs, I wanted them popped up so I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment from the Garden Wishes Bundle (156220) which contains the Garden Wishes stamp set. All of these items and more are included in this super suite … the Dandy Garden Suite.

All of these items will be available on Tuesday, January 4th! If you have still not received your catalog … please contact me to set up a time to “pick it up”. If yours comes in the mail later … pass it on to a friend!

Thank you for stopping over today to check out my blog.

Happy Sunday ~

Simply Sunday: Sneak Peek!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a Sneak Peek into the new MINI Catalog and Sale-a-bration Catalog! I’m using the Laser cut paper from the Dandy Garden Suite along with the beautiful “Heal Your Heart” Stamp Set from our Sale-a-bration catalog.

For those of you who are new to stamping and do not know what Sale-a-bration is; it’s our most exciting and anticipated event of the year … and this year we will celebrate twice!! Our upcoming Sale-a-bration period will run from January 5th through February 28th. For each $50 purchase (before shipping & taxes) can chose one of the many amazing products from our Sale-a-bration Catalog … these are exclusive to this event only!

Let’s take a look at today’s card …

I began with the Laser cut piece and layered it over the stunning Fine Art Floral Designer Series paper from the Mini Catalog. I chose the pattern that looks like brush strokes of a painting … I thought it created a beautiful background to my laser cut paper. This front piece was layered with dimensionals onto a piece of Mango Melody which I cut a small piece off and split it apart to create some added dimension and creates a simple but fun twist to the card!

The greeting comes from the “Heal Your Heart” stamp set that comes from our Sale-a-bration catalog … which you can earn for FREE during the Sale-a-bration period. I used the Everyday Label Punch to highlight the greeting, I then put on a few Rhinestones and popped it up with dimensionals. I love the layering on this simple card … it really helps bring it to life!

I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek into our upcoming catalogs … If you have ordered through me in the last year, you should be receiving both catalogs. I have heard that they are just being delivered … I hope they are not stuck int this pile…

Please keep me posted on whether you have received your catalogs or not … I want to make sure you have yours before my Spring Sale-a-bration Party!! More information on that soon.

Have a wonderful day and Thank You for joining me today.
