This is the second card we made at our monthly club meeting. We used a new stamp set from the 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog called Celebration Time. This stamp set has matching Thinlits called Celebration and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.
One of the awesome things that Stampin’ Up! is doing in this catalog is they not only make Thinlits or Framelits to match a particular stamp in the set but they also add some extras. In this case, the Celebration Thinlits will cut out the cake and the candle but it also has three tags to go with this stamp set. As you can see, the Whisper White tag is one of them and the striped Berry Burst Tag is another. There is also a tag that used the present stamp set. All together there are 14 dies in this set. Many of the die sets in this catalog are like that. When you see a stamp set that says it has matching dies, make sure you check them out on the Big Shot pages to see what other dies are in the set.
Don’t forget the specials that are going on this month. One of them is Bonus Days where you can earn coupons for your qualifying purchases. There is also a great sign up special going on. Sign up to be a Demonstrator during July and you get a Free Essentials Gift Pack and a stamp set from the Holiday Catalog that comes out in September!
Deborah is a friend of mine and very talented Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from Canada. She is on a design team called Paper Craft Crew and they do challenges every week. I haven’t participated in a challenge in a very long time so I decided to try this challenge.
I ordered a lot of new products from the Annual Catalog so I decided to use some of them for the card.
The stamp set I used is called Celebration Time. It has matching Thinlits called Celebration that are so cute. They cut out some of the images from the stamp set but they also cut a bunch of other images such as tags and a cute party hat.
I also decided to use the new Embossing Paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks for the background of this card. It was so easy to use! I held down one of the Masks with Washi Tape. Then I used one of the Palette Knives to spread the paste over the Mask. It dries really quickly so you can start decorating your card fairly soon. One of the nice things about the Embossing Paste is you can use it as is, which is white, or you can add some ink to it to make it whatever color you prefer. I actually used it as is but it looks like Pool Party because I put it on Bermuda Bay cardstock.
