Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! There are 20 of us from around the globe who will be sharing our projects with you twice each month. All you need to do to follow along is click on the link at the bottom of each post.
It is only one week away until the Occasions catalog is live, and it will mark the start of the biggest annual event at Stampin’ Up! — Sale-a-Bration! We all love Sale-a-Bration! With each $50 (US) purchase, you can get a Sale-a-Bration product for free. Woohoo!
There is a fun new set in the Occasions catalog called Balloon Celebration, and it has a coordinating punch. I love how punches can make projects so much quicker and easier.
I started with a Pool Party card base. A piece of Watercolor Paper was washed with some Pool Party ink and water. Once that dried, I hand drew the strings with a Project Life Journaling Pen, and stamped the bitty stars with So Saffron ink, which I then covered with a Wink of Stella Gold Glitter Brush. It adds a fun touch of shimmer. I also applied some of this magical stuff to the wood sentiment.
I created the balloons by first stamping off some Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow ink once or twice onto some Whisper White card stock. I love how there are two sizes of balloons with this stamp set and punch.
The cute little gold bow is actually a paper clip, and will also be available next week in the Occasions catalog.
All of these products will be available starting January 5.
