Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalogue Launch Party

The new Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue and Jan – Feb Sale-a-bration catalogues are both in full swing, so I thought I’d take some time to walk you through and show some of the projects I have created with these new products.

During this launch party I also created 4 fabulous cards and am offering a kind of reverse card class. You’ve seen me make them – now with a $60 order before Jan 24th – you can receive the make’n’take pack for FREE so you can make these cards for yourself.

Here are the 4 cards I created:

I love using card sketches to create cards. Most of these cards were created using old favourites – but one of them was inspired by the TGIF Sketch Challenge #351

To see all the details of these cards you can watch my video below.

I used the FREE SAB set Driving By and then altered the sentiment slightly by grabbing a ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Party Puffins stamp set.

Some other details on this card are the Gingham embossed background, the rainbow stripes from the Sweet Talk DSP and the Resin Stars embellishments.

Sweet Conversations Cards

All week I am focusing on making valentines. Not the lovey kind (although I guess I should make one of those for Noah) but the friendship/ thinking of you kind. I have a class full of sweeties that deserve a bit of extra sunshine in their day, plus a bunch of friends I don’t get to see enough of these days. I want everyone to know I am thinking of them and grateful for them in my life.

Today’s card was inspired by two different challenges.

Global Design Project #325 | Color Challenge

The set I featured was the Sweet Conversations stamp set and Sweet Heart dies from the Stampin’ Up! Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue.

Using the same Sweet Conversation bundle and adding in some of the coordinating DSP I also showed this fun card.

The hearts on this card were die cut from cardstock (and heat embossed to add the sentiment to the green heart) and mostly from die-cutting from the DSP (bottom left sheet of mixed hearts). I love the watercolour patterns on the rainbow array of hearts.

To see all the details of these cards you can watch my video below.

Abstract Beauty Card

The NEW JJ2022 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalogue was released this week and I am in love with so many of the sets and suites. To see all of the new product contact me to get a catalogue or check out the online catalogues here.

Today I am playing around with the Abstract Beauty Suite.

The whole suite has so many great elements! The watercolour washes and the gold accents contrast nicely with the harsh edges of the geometric shapes. It is abstract art to the next level.

The design was inspired by the Global Design Project challenge #324.

I decided to pair this challenge with this suite because I wanted you to see how much fun it can be to create with. I’m not the only one who thinks so. Myself and 7 other Canadian Demonstrators have teamed together to create a 16 card Abstract Beauty MEGA Stamp Camp. When you purchase the Abstract Beauty Suite from me you will get FREE access to this event. If you already own the stamp set and dies or don’t live in Canada don’t worry we have you covered too. See all the details by clicking the image below.

What’s even sweeter is that when you order the Abstract Beauty Suite – not only will you get access to the Stamp Camp – but you’ll earn FREE Sale-a-bration items!

To learn more about this suite and see how I made this card – check out my video. You can also try to catch me live at 9am Pacific Time on Wednesday mornings.

Paper Pumpkin – December 2021 – Lots of Pun Alternative Cards

I am BANANAS for the December 2021 Paper Pumpkin. The stamp set and sentiments that come with the kit are perfect for continuing to create fun, punny cards. Here are three more alternatives using the leftover bits from the kit and some extra cardstock.

The thin striped paper on this card was actually the leftover frame from the original striped pieces. To stamp the banana I used a sticky note to create a mask – allowing me to stamp and layer the bananas to create the bunch. I coloured the bananas with Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

This egg-cellent card was created using some new 2022 SAB DSP – Sunshine and Rainbows. You can earn this DSP for FREE between Jan 4 – Feb 28, 2022. See below for all the details about Sale-a-bration.

This last card also uses the new 2022 SAB DSP – Sunshine and Rainbows to create a celebratory feeling.

I hope you enjoyed these Paper Pumpkin alternative cards. Please leave a comment below and make sure to follow this blog for more great inspiration! Also – don’t forget to subscribe for next month’s beautiful Paper Pumpkin.

Sweet Conversations Card

The NEW Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue is almost here – you can order from it beginning Tuesday, January 4th!! This sweet card was created using products from one of the upcoming Suites.

The layout of this card was inspired by a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (#FMS516)

This suite has dies that perfectly cut out the conversation hearts from the DSP – however once you’ve used all those up there are the stamp sets that allow you to stamp the hearts and the words separately to be able to truly mix and match colours. There is a beautiful red ribbon in this suite – but I HAD to pair this sheet of DSP up with our gorgeous Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon. The slight metallic shimmer to this thick ribbon makes it so fun. For just a bit more sparkle I embellished the card with the magnificent new Iridescent Rhinestones.

The banner die is also a part of the Sweet Hearts dies set – keep an eye out for it on many more projects, I can see myself using it often. If you want to see more of these products contact me to get your own copy of the Mini Jan – June 2022 Catalogue. Also – check out my upcoming Product Shares and Stamp Camp.
