Hi folks! I have something cool to show you! The NEW Occasions Catalog is getting ready to launch on January 4th – and I was able to participate in card challenge coordinated by my upline using some of the new products!
I can’t show you the catalog *just* yet… soon, though! What I can show you is projects I’ve made with the wonderful products in it! So, today I will show you the card I made for the challenge:
It’s definitely got a bit of everything going on. 🙂 The cool polka dots and other designs inside are from the new Party Animal Designer Series Paper, which is part of the Party Animal Suite. Who wouldn’t like it with a name like that??
The balloons and banner cutout is from the new Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies. It also has the individual balloons with the dots and stripes. This is great because this also coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch in the Annual Catalog. I used the punch to get the white behind the balloons to make the design stand out more from the Emerald Envy. The “Congratulations” actually came from the Balloon Celebration Stamp set also in the Annual catalog – but there are plenty more sentiments in the new Balloon Adventures set as part of the Suite! (I just don’t have it yet!)
Here is the inside of the card, where I used the same die as the front to create the pop-up look:
Here’s a better look from the top:
It folds right down the middle, but I only put adhesive on half of the middle balloon, so it would not fold – it makes it stick out more! The Happy-Happy came from the Number of Years stamp set. It fit perfectly – I stamped it twice.
To give it all a bit of sparkle, I added Wink of Stella on the balloons, both inside and on the front:
It’s definitely a one of a kind card, and I hope it inspires you to create something colorful!
The new Occasions catalog will be posted on January 4th, and if you don’t have one – but want one!!! Let me know and I will get one to you!
It’s double-y awesome because Sale-A-Bration starts the SAME day! I’ll have some details and samples of that coming up, too.
With all the excitement brewing over the new items, don’t forget about the current Holiday Catalog!! There are still some fantastic sales going on, and some supplies are running out! Here is a link right over to the Closeout Specials on my online store so you don’t miss out!
