Sweet Soiree

It’s Sale-a-bration time and the launch of the 2018 Occasion Catalog!  WAHOO! I have several fun projects that I want to share with you today to kick off the event!   It was hard to decide what to share with you first as there are so many amazing products in the new catalogs! So for today, I will showcase some projects featuring the Sweet Soiree Suite in the new 2018 Occasions Catalog.

This suite of products caught my eye right away because of the beautiful designs, fabulous colors and amazing images. I love the elegance of all of the products in the suite. The projects showcased here were created with the Sweet Soiree Designer Paper and Embellishment kit. Even though I am only showcasing 4 projects today, I actually created 16 different projects with just one embellishment kit! All of the projects are absolutely gorgeous and, of course, I will share them with you throughout the next several weeks.

One of the things I was super excited about was the use of the color Marina Mist. This is one of those Stampin’ Up! colors that I just haven’t used in awhile so to see it as part of a product suite was exciting to me! Sometimes it’s the little things like this that make me happy. So the first thing I did was put together 4 different projects using that color. The card showcased above features simple layering of embellishments. I used some from the Sweet Soiree kit and some others that I had on hand. It has a fun and elegant look.

This second card features the new designer paper and embellishments from the kit. Start with a piece of Marina Mist cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of the pretty blue patterned paper from the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper Pack and adhere to the card front. The focal point of the card is a 2-3/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock stamped with a sentiment from the Cake Soiree set and embellished with items from the kit. Super simple yet very pretty!

This last card design was inspired by one of the projects in the new catalog. I simply changed out the colors and added some different embellishments.  The designer paper pieces are cut at 2 x 4 inches and simply layered together. The sentiment is stamped on a 1 x 3-1/4 inch piece of white cardstock. The card is embellished with items from the Sweet Soiree kit and a few others I had on hand.

The final project is a little coordinating gift box that can be used with any of the card ideas I just shared. This adorable little box features the Sweet Soiree embellishment kit and the Silver Mini Gable Boxes. The boxes come in a pack of 12 and are already cut, scored and ready to assemble. It makes it so easy to create pretty little packages!

Are you excited about these new products? I sure am! And I can’t wait to share more fun ideas with you!

Cheers to the Year

Have you noticed that many of the products featured in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog can be used for more than just holiday cards?  That’s right, they can!  The Cheers to the Year stamp set and product suite is one of those. The stamp set has some fun images for the holidays but there are also images to create beautiful wedding cards like this!

This card features one of the patterns from the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack and the “Mr & Mrs” stamped images. This DSP will give your projects an elegant look. The foil designs are perfect for holidays, weddings, and anniversaries.

Of course there are also fun images and products that you can use to create holiday cards!  This card showcases the Winter Wonder textured embossing folder and the stamped image from the Cheers to the Year set. I love the look of the snowflake embossed on some silver foil paper. So many possibilities with these products! Get creative with it!

Year of Cheer

The Year of Cheer Suite has some simply beautiful products that can be used all year long. You can create gorgeous wintry projects for Christmas or even cards for a Wedding.  The elegant foil and intricate designs make these products fabulous for any occasion. For this project, I decided to go with the wintry look.

To make this card, start with a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock for the base. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock and emboss the top half with the Softly Falling Textured Embossing Folder. To emboss only the top half of your cardstock, simply leave part of it hanging out of the folder; if it’s not in the folder, it won’t be embossed. Cut a 5-1/4 x 2 inch piece of one of the patterns of paper in the new Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. Adhere this piece to the lower half of the white cardstock (the part that is not embossed).  Adhere a piece of the silver trim ribbon across the center of the card as shown. Cut out a scalloped square (or other fun shape) to use as a matte for the silver foil snowflake; adhere to the card front as shown. For the finishing touch, stamp a little sentiment on a scrap piece of white cardstock, cut it out with a fun framelit shape and adhere to the foil snowflake with a few dimensionals. Embellish as desired!
