January Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #26

Welcome to the January Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #26. You may have joined me from Melissa’s Blog or you have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to use anything from the January – June Mini Catalogue and/or the the Sale-a-bartion Catalogue. It sounds like it would be an easy challenge but it can get tricky when you have so many things that you want to play with and so little time to play.

I have been playing with so many new products between Christmas & New year and into January. There are so many delicious products that are now available and you’ll want to get your hands on these products.

I decided to use the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration catalogue which you can earn for free with a $90 purchase. Overlaying each of the squares shows off the papers and adds interest to the card. Pairing this paper with a simple sentiment of Thank you from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set which is found in the January-June Mini Catalogue. Choosing a colour within each patterned paper to stamp the sentiment in and the card is done.

This the set of cards that I created using just the patterned paper and the sentiment
Here is a close up of one of my favourite papers in the pack.

Dragonfly Garden

The Dragonfly Garden stamp set is found in the Dandy Garden Suite and is so lovely that you will get so much inspiration from it and will want to snap it up in no time. I have used the Dragonfly Garden Bundle of the stamp set and punch and also used the Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP. These were designed by the Stampin’ Up! team and I enjoyed making these cards. Using all the same products and sized card stock pieces for each card. We’ve just flipped the layout. On these cards we have also used the Ladybug Trinkets and used the Mini Glue Dots to keep them affixed to the card.

I have one more card set to share with you over the coming week. Let me know what you think of this bundle and if it is on your wishlist. You can also see some of the other products that are in this suite at this post. Below are some samples from the January to June Mini Catalogue. You can also remind yourself of my previous here.

Love You Always

The Love You Always Suite is absolutely stunning with the Specialty Designer Series Paper, Foil sheets and True Love Designer Series Paper. I wanted to create some more simple cards using the the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper. I cut up the specialty paper into 2″ squares and then overlayed them with their corresponding colour. Stamping the sentiment in the bottom left corner finishes this card off beautifully.

A set of stunning cards

January to June Mini Catalogue

Today is the day that the January to June Mini Catalogue has been released! New catalogue release day is always an exciting day as we get to see all the new products that have been released for us to get our hands on. And there are some amazing products in this catalogue. Not only is the January to June Mini Catalogue released but so is the
Sale-a-bration Catalogue which also starts today until the 28th February. It is shorter this year but get another SAB in the middle of the year to make up for it.

During Sale-a-bration you get a gift with purchase when you spend $90. There are many choices of stamps and paper that you can choose from. Just check out the Sale-a-bration catalogue to see all the things that you’d like to receive FREE.

Butterfly Wishes

Butterfly Wishes is what I am sharing today with you and this gorgeous card. I have matched this stamp with Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, Soft Sea Foam & Crumb Cake ink. Adding the extra texture to the card with the 3 types of ribbon adds to the card.

When I create my classes I always have left over kits and this is one of the kits I had left over so I wanted to create extra cards. Using Very Vanilla also softens the card.

I will continue to use up all the excess card kits that I have and I am hoping to use all current stamp sets to do so. Tomorrow is the last day to be able to order from the Giant Year End Close Out.

Retiring Products

We are in the last days of the Retiring Products – Giant Year End Close Out. Now that we are in January, we only have a couple more days with some of the gorgeous products from the August to December Mini Catalogue as there are so many Retiring Products on the Giant Year End Closeout that finishes on the 4th January.

I mentioned in my post yesterday I was going to share some of the retiring products and here are a couple of cards I made using some products that are saying goodbye.

In both of these cards I have used the Tag Buffet Stamp Set and some blends to colour in the ornament and the stocking. I also used the gorgeous Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. Both the papers and the stamp set are retiring. The Tag Buffet stamp set is reduced by 20% till the 4th January so its a great time to get your hands on this stamp set. The colours in this paper are just so stunning together and I am really going to miss this paper. I have stocked up on it so I will be able to use it again. If there are items that you’ll miss once they’re gone then get to shopping now and buy those things before they’re gone for good.
