2023 Spring Mini catalogue & Sale-a-Bration products

 As many of you know, the new mini catalogue went live on January 4th, plus the new Sale-a-Bration brochure is in force!!!

I started playing with the new products I received so far!

The first 2 cards were made using the Dainty Flowers DSP you get for FREE with a $60 CAD order during Sale-a-Bration (Jan & Feb 2023)  This paper coordinates with the Dainty Delight Bundle, it is $74.50 CAD, so by ordering this bundle, you qualify for the pack of DSP for free!

I love how this paper looks textured, similar to watercolor paper! Here's a close-up...

I used the Medium Daisy punch & a small circle punch for the center.

And for these 2 cards, I used the Favored Flowers DSP you also get for Free with a $60 purchase during SAB!   There is a coordinating bundle called Fragrant Flowers that is $67.50, so if you get that, it would qualify you for this paper, or you can order something else.  I simply fussy-cut the flowers from this beautiful pack of paper for both of my cards! 


And for this one, I used the Pretty Flowers Embossing folder from the Annual Catalogue

And this 'Way to Grow' stamp set was my first choice when I saw the new catalogue!  There's no dies for this set, you just fusy-cut the stamped images if you want to pop them up (like I did for the hair & stamped the shirt on DSP and fussy-cut it out, just like the example in the catalogue on page 38)

For the tag, all I did was cut a rectangle Mossy Meadow cardstock 2 1/8'' x 1 1/2'' and then cut out 2 opposite corners with the Very Best Trio Punch, and then heat embossed the greeting with White embossing powder.  The stamped Basic White cardstock is 3 1/4'' x 4 1/8''.

I embossed a Petal Pink Cardstock 4 1/8'' x 5 3/8'' with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder and glued that on a Petal Pink cardbase.  This card is similar, but different to the sample in the catalogue!


When you go see this stamp set on the Online store, you can find these samples from Stampin'Up!

And this is a (Level 2) Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Beautifully Happy, which means you can get it for FREE if you order $120 CAD in products (before tax & shipping)  It's a 2-step stamping set, which means you have one stamp that does the contours, and another one to do the colors inside the lines!  I used the Deckled Rectangles dies to do the layers here, I love the faux ripped effect!

These cards are so darn fun to make!  I used the pack of Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More cards along with the Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More cards & envelopes.

Here's more ideas from Stampin'Up! that you can make with these


And our friend, Diane Stewart, came up with these beautiful cards using the beautiful Seaside Bay bundle! 

Here's a few more samples from Stampin'Up!

Take a look at this beautiful By the Bay Specialty DSP!  

And another one of my Team members, Anik Scantland, created these 2 cards with the Rain or Shine Specialty DSP.   Click HERE to see the sheets from that pack, it's screaming SPRING!!! 
This paper coordinates with the cute Rain or Shine Suite from pages 50-51 of the mini catalogue!  The little critters are adorable!!! She used the Stylish Shapes dies on the cards.


And I love this set of projects posted on Stampin'Up!'s FB group, they were created by the Artisan Design team (can't remember which person made them), but I loved it so much, that I re-created one of them, but instead of punching out a bunch of those hearts, I simply embossed the card front with the Gingham embossing folder!  I'm sorry to annonce that the Country Bouquet Punch is out of stock till approx April 17th! But the Country Bouquet stamp set is available as of now, plus the Country Floral Lane DSP, which is what they used on the following projects! 

My version with the Gingham E/F

Well, that's it for now, so until my next batch of cards are done, have a great day!
