Happy New Year from Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Design Team!  We are so thrilled to be sharing projects using some of the latest and greatest from the Occasions Catalog.  If you have come over from amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop.  If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.

I am so thrilled with the products in this new catalog.  They look so fresh and fun!  In fact…Retro Fresh!  That is the DSP used here.  Aren’t the colors great?!  I combined it with some items from the upcoming Sale-a-bration (SAB) promotion.  What is that?  Well, on January 28th the most marvelous thing happens.  For every $50 (US) you spend, you get to choose a FREE item from the SAB catalog!!  See those little banners I used to make the sun…Banner Punch…free!  See the texture on the clouds?  Decorative Dots Embossing Folder…free!!  You get the point!  It is awesome!  Ok, for the rest of the details.  I cut the print from Retro Fresh to 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ to make it the same size as my Pool Party card base.  Then I punched a circle out of the Tangerine Tango striped print with my 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.  A bunch of banners with the Banner Punch out of Tangerine Tango Card Stock and arrange until you are happy with your sun.  The clouds?  The shape is one of the Word Bubbles Framelits and then I ran it through with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder to give it a little more dimension.  The sentiment is from Gifts of Kindness (a main catalog set) and it just seemed perfect with the sun and clouds.  A few buttons threaded with Pool Party Twine (from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack…also from SAB and free) to finish it off.

There are lots of ways to use this idea.  Spoiler alert…some of you going to Leadership Conference may see it again on the display boards.  *smile*  I know that I will be using it again for sure.  Nothing like punches and framelits to make cute things quickly!

Starting next Monday, I will begin sharing projects I made for Stampin’ Up’s Leadership Conference.  I can’t wait to show you all that I was working on at the end of November!  The entire Artisan Design Team created projects for the display boards so keep an eye on all of our blogs for the details…yep, we’ll be showing you the how-to’s!

Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber.  I can’t wait for you to see what she has created!  Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
