Stampin up occasions mini catalog saleabration punch demonstrator blog
I have more introductions today to new products from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog (available Jan. 4) and Sale-A-Bration (available Jan. 24).  Here's a link to all my sneak peek samples.  Be sure to scroll through the posts.  PLUS it's time for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO219). 

NEED A FREE COPY of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs?  Please email me your name and U.S. address here ([email protected]).  Distribution begins this week!!   If you have a relationship with another Stampin' Up! demonstrator, please contact them directly for your copy. 


  • I layered floral images from Bordering on Romance stamp set (available Jan. 4).  These rubber stamps make a custom background fast and pretty.  I used the long row of flowers stamp to give a fancy finish to the envelope.
  • The sweet strips of Blushing Bride pattern are from Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (available Jan. 4).  Each measures 1 1/8" x 5".
  • Stampin up occasions mini catalog saleabration punch demonstrator blog ribbonThe sweet swirly buttons (also in Blushing Bride) are Twitterpated Designer Buttons (available Jan. 4).  Mini Glue Dots keep them in place.
  • Sumptuous.  That's the word that comes to mind when seeing the new Stampin' Up! Satin Pleated Ribbon.  This Blushing Bride version coordinates with everything in the Stampin' Up! Twitterpated Product Suite.  Isn't that what makes Stampin' Up! so "user-friendly?"
  • Stampin up occasions mini catalog blossom punch demonstrator blogThat's the new Blossom Punch (available Jan. 4) tucked behind the sentiment.  Quick and easy.  And the sentiment?  It's from one of the new Sale-A-Bration stamps called Elementary Elegance (promotion begins Jan. 24).

ECARD GIFTS AVAILABLE.  Whether it's a stocking stuffer, last minute gift or a nudge to a significant other, I can whip up an E-Card gift certificate (redeemable thru me) pronto.  Minimum $25.  Must be purchased by Dec. 22 for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day delivery.  Get the details.

    Mary, I love how you layer your cards. It adds such depth and dimension. Such an inspiration!

  2. Beautiful Mary. I love the B&W panel; never would have thought to do something like that.

    Congratulations on making Demonstrator of the Year!

  3. OMG Mary. This card is gorgeous and I am loving all of the new SU goodies. So exciting!!!

  4. Thanks, Mary! I LOVE that ribbon look 🙂

  5. Hi Amy

    I just cut and attach the pleated ribbon.

    Hugs, M

  6. Pretty card, I just love your work, so inspiring for me.

  7. Beautiful card! Everything from the large flower to the buttons and ribbon–just lovely 🙂

  8. What a beautiful and stunning card. Mary you’ve done it again!!! I can’t wait to see some more sneak previews. So far I want everything you’ve showed us!!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. Mary, I love this card! You can do things like stamping that image repeatedly in black that packs such a wow and I just don’t think of doing that – love it! I’m curious…with the pleated ribbon, do you tuck it under at the ends or can you just cut it and attach it? The ends look very neat. Thanks! 🙂

  10. Beautiful! Those colors go great together.

  11. Mary Lou Glick

  15. Mary, this is GORGEOUS! Love all the new goodies you have used on your card! Makes me want to be a demo again! Beautiful!

  16. Mary….Can you say OVERLOAD! (but THANKS!) Love the new DSP and Flower Punch….but handsdown…all time favorite in the mini catalog is going to be the Satin Pleated Ribbon – SERIOUSLY SUMPTUOUS! Thanks for sharing.
