Sneak Peek and a TGIF Challenge (#TGIFC33)

I was playing with some of my new toys and a sketch that I had seen popped into my head.  So I 
decided to play along...

Here is the challenge:

And here is my card:

These items are from the Occasions Catalog, to be released January 5 (want to get your things early?  Join Stampin' UP! now and you'll get to receive new goodies before anyone else!).  

Party Wishes is a stamp set that is part of a wonderful bundle--It's My Party.  The balloons, candle and cupcake have matching punches (yea!) and there is a fabulous Designer Series Paper Stack to match!

My card base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  I first adhered a piece of the DSP to Mint Macaron and then punched my three holes using a 1-3/8" circle punch.  I positioned the layer over my card base and lightly traced the circles with a pencil.  This allowed me to position my balloon strings in the proper place.

The balloons, cupcake, candle and "make a wish" were stamped, punched and positioned on my card base, and my Mint Macaron layer was adhered over the top with Dimensionals.

But there was just something missing...too much space between my circles and the bottom of the card...I know!

"Hooray" from a Sale-a-Bration (FREE) set called Perfect Pairings was the perfect filler, along with the cute Melon Mambo It's My Party Enamel Dots

So there you have it--a Sneak Peek of new items from both the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs AND a sketch challenge--what do you think?  

Need a new Occasions Catalog?  If you are a regular customer of mine, I have one for you; if you do not have a Stampin' UP! demonstrator, I'd love to help! 


  1. This card is super fun! What a fabulous way to show of those great new Occasions sneak peek products! Thanks so much for playing along at TGIF this week.

  2. Oh my gosh Priscilla! Seriously adorable, so glad you were inspired by the sketch!
