Happy New Year, Stampers and Card-Makers!
The last month of 2022 was not a great one for me. But I’m on the mend and almost back to full strength as I say goodbye to one Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog and hello to one that’s brand new!
Goodbye To Some Lovely Papers!
One thing of which I can always be assured is that Designer Series Papers in one catalog will not carry over to the next. That’s the case with the beautifully iridescent Festive Foils Specialty Papers. You might notice that the photo of this card is taken at a strange angle. But I needed that angle to have the shiny designs in the Festive Foil card front show. If you look at the catalog photo of this paper you’ll see that the designs fade into the background. But that doesn’t happen in real life. It’s beautiful paper. You can still buy it today (January 4th). But after that it’s gone. One can hope it might appear in the clearance rack later in the year. But no guarantees. The stock number is 159536. Already I cannot grab the number electronically!
The other set of papers that will not be available after today is the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. It was lovely while it lasted. Again one can hope that it will be in the clearance rack down the road. Sigh. Its stock number is 161814.
What Will STILL Be Around!
The product that I think really makes this card is the die set that made both of the frames I used in this card. It’s called, Framed Florets Dies, and is definitely in the new January – April 2023 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. So you can order it today or just about any day through April of this year.
Stay Tuned for Some New Products
I’ve actually had some energy to play with some of my new Stampin’ Up! products, and I’ll be showing off here what I’ve been doing with them beginning on Friday. My first card was so much fun that I made a bunch and sent them to my customers with their copies of the new Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog and – ta-da! – the new Sale-a-bration Brochure. STAY TUNED!
