The Occasions Catalogue 2016 is here.
Happy New Year to everyone. I wish you a new year full of blessings and new beginnings. I’m not really a fan of resolutions but I try to do one achievable thing each year. This year, I will be stamping more.
This time last year, I was heavily pregnant and my back was hurting constantly. It was a struggle to sit down for long periods of time so card making was a slow process. Then my daughter was born so taking care of baby became the priority.
Now that she’s past the baby stage, I can sit down again and enjoy doing what I love most – stamping. I’m lucky that my work is also my time for play. I’m so grateful and enjoy it as much as I can as it’s a luxury that not everyone has.
Here at Stampin’ Up!, we welcomed the new year with the new Occasions Catalogue. Once again, we are spoilt for choice. I ordered my favourite stamp from the catalogue called In The Meadow.
The woodland images are beautiful and versatile. The stamp set can be used for any occasion and I absolutely love it. The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die is another beautiful and intricate product. It’s a must-have for card makers.
Plus, the Big Shot Die Brush made it easier for me to remove small pieces from the die. It’s a tool that every Big a Shot Machine owner should have.
Here’s how I made the card:
- Stamp the deer from In the Meadow on the left side of the card, a little bit towards the top so that there’s space for the heart.
- Stamp some greenery around the edges of where the heart will be attached.
- Die cut the heart from the Bloomin’ Thinlits dies and attach to the card on the right side towards the bottom. Position it so that it’s tilting.
- Attach flowers, sequins or gems for a finishing touch.
