Occasions Catalog Kickoff Event

In January I held our Occasions Catalog Kickoff Event using new products from the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogs. Carol’s sample box was filled with Dove Chocolates which fit and matched perfectly with their rose colored foil wrappers. The heart punched in the box front for the window was used inside the matching card.

Heartfelt Blooms with Berry Burst

One of my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamps is Stampin’ Up!’s Heartfelt Blooms. It is inked with only one ink and it and has a lot of dimension. Don’t you agree?

Jeannine Tarrio Heartfelt Blooms Tip

It is a new type of stamp that lays down ink at different opacities to give the finished image more depth. If your image doesn’t have any depth your ink pad is too dry. If it is too wet then you lose all the detail. When it is inked just enough you get the perfect image.

Have fun using your Hearfelt Blooms stamp. You can’t buy it, however, you can get it free during Sale-A-Bration.

Best Birds,Blends ,and Brusho® Make a Great Combination

I am very pleased with how this card turned out. I had colored the bird and branch with Stampin’ Blends and was waiting for inspiration to finish my card. Then I played with Brusho® Crystal Colours and a whole new world of ideas came into play. I love the vibrant colors you can get with this medium.
