Birthday on Cloud Nine
I just placed my first January order from the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, and, of course, got some Sale-a-bration products. I can’t wait until it gets here on Saturday!
Meanwhile, I’ve been playing a little with some of the stamps from my previous orders. This uses the Lift Me Up stamp set and the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies. Of course, if you bundle the products, you’ll save 10%.
This is a Whisper White card with 1″ cut from the front edge. I added some Moroccan Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the inside edge and under the sentiment banner.
The balloons are stamped in Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, and Delightful Dijon. I took the colors straight from the DSP. I die-cut clouds from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, and sponged a bit of Dapper Denim ink to the edges. The smaller clouds are stamped and die-cut, then added to the card.
You can’t see them well, but there are teeny little clouds stamped in Soft Sky to add just a bit of interest to the white card. And, of course, I had to add a few sequins. I don’t know what kit those little sequins came out of, but they’re so sweet and add just enough sparkle to a project.
You’re going to love the Occasions Catalog. There’s something for everyone! You can view it here – and if you want a “hard copy,” let me know!
I’m missing my little sidekick this week. Wesley has the week off, so he’s been home with Amelia. I practically begged him to go do something tomorrow so I can play with her for a few hours. It’s been almost boring around here!
They’re calling for snow here tomorrow. I always love the first snow. It actually snowed here last week – and stuck for a few minutes before it blew away. But the first “real” snow is always magical. Then it turns to slush and ice, and it’s just messy and annoying. But the first day – FUN! And Amelia has a great coat, snow suit, and snow boots, so she’s ready.
Hope you’re having a wonderful beginning to 2017. Remember to place your Occasions order and take advantage of the Sale-a-bration products so you’ll have lots of craft this winter! And don’t forget about the Holiday Catalog Carry-overs and the Clearance Rack!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy! Have a wonderful day!
