Happy New Year paper crafters!

Have you made any resolutions for 2018?  I usually don’t but this year I did resolve to spend more time doing what I love – making greeting cards and other arts.  Resolution #2 is to share those projects on my blog.

I hope you have received your new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  If you don’t have yours and are not working with another demonstrator I’ll gladly mail you the catalogs.  The products in the Occasions Catalog are available on Jan. 3, 2018 and end on May 2018, but WAIT there’s more.  The SALE-A-Bration perioed ends on March 31.  What is Sale-A-Bration?  It’s only the best Stampin Up sale of the year.  For every $50 you spend on any Stampin Up product (before tax and shipping)  you choose a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

One of the wonderful stamp set bundles in the Occasions Catalog is the Petal Palette stamps and coordinating dies.  This set is sure to be extremely popular, I’ve already made 3 different cards using the bundle.  Here’s the card I’m sharing today.

The Petal Palette stamp set has wonderful images that can be colored with the medium of your choice.  I used the Stampin Up Watercolor pencils and blended the colors with a blender pen.  It’s best to use the Archival Basic Black ink pad to keep the images from smearing.  Here’s what I used to make this card:
