The Occasions catalog is brimming with so many wonderful new products!!
One of my favorite suites of products is the Sweet Soiree Suite. As a member of the Global Events Council, I was asked by Stampin’ Up! to do a presentation on this suite at our November Onstage Live Convention. I fell in love with the products in this suite, and once I started creating with them, I couldn’t stop!
Here’s a video made by Stampin’ Up! that showcases the products in this suite. Just a note – I don’t use the Stamp-a-ma-jig that she refers to at the beginning of the video – so if you aren’t a fan, don’t worry! I created some great projects without using it!
I’ll be sharing all of my projects over the next week or so, and here is my first card:
This card features lots of products from the Sweet Soiree Product Suite – found on pages 10-13 of the Occasions Catalog – yes four pages!
I started with a Whisper White thick cardstock base – and added a layer of Berry Burst cardstock. I used my formula for designer paper for the next layer – it’s cut 3″ across and 4″ high -this allows 12 pieces of this size from just one 12 x 12 piece of designer series paper!
I stamped the cake image and flower with Berry Burst ink – and cut the shapes out with the coordinating framelits. I want to mention that you get duplicates of the flower framelit and also one of the leaf shapes – which makes it so easy for cutting multiples!
The little sprig of green is also cut using a framelit.
Here’s a close up of the focal point-
To finish the card, I stamped “for you” with Marina Mist ink and cropped the end to make a banner. I also added a little bit of the beautiful new Berry Burst Metallic Edge ribbon and a snippet of Silver Mini Sequin Trim.
And here is the same card – I just switched up the designer paper, card base and ink.
This card uses a base of Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo ink for the cake, and Rich Razzleberry ink for the flower and word banner.
Purchasing the Cake Soiree Bundle qualifies you for a Saleabration product of your choice! Here’s a list of products used for this project – all are available in my online store, and by clicking on the links below:
