Sneak Peek Play Date with Playful Palette

Stampin Up Painters Palette Birthday Card & Envelope - Mary Fish StampinUp

It was ecstatic to receive a big box of new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog this week, including many of the sneak peek products from the Playful Palette suite on today’s birthday card.   I’ll be sharing the excitement and new product samples with you through the end of May.  The new annual catalog begins June 1.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

If you missed my video reveal of all the goodies in my pre-order (including a closer look at today’s sneak peek products), you can watch it here.  My pre-order included a sampling of products only available to demonstrators (or those purchasing the $99 starter kit can get them now) before the official catalog start date on June 1.  That’s the day I’ll place my “kahuna” order!

I also incorporated the largest tag die from Chalk Talk Framelits Dies, which was YOUR top pick in my latest Reader’s Choice Poll.  The retiring Chalk Talk Framelits Dies are 30% off and only available while supplies last.  See what else is retiring and on sale (up to 50% off) here.

Readers Choice Poll Results


  • The sentiment from the new Painter’s Palette stamp set (what a hip, little font!) was stamped on Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Sweet Sugarplum is one of the new 2016-2018 In Colors (Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach).

  • Also new are the Layer Squares Framelits Dies.  So many sizes (19 in all) and possibilities in both straight and scallop edges.   I used a scallop edged square to crop the sentiment.
  • Yum!  Gorgeous ruched ribbon in ALL the new 2016-2018 In Colors will likely top your wish list for accessories.  The ribbon (I used Peekaboo Peach) is a delight to work with and I’m nutso over the “gathered” texture.

  • I’m also introducing the new Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape, part of the Playful Palette suite of coordinating products.  I used Fast Fuse Adhesive for extra strength hold on the envelope border–such a pretty touch!
  • Of course, to complete the look and play up the meaning of the sentiment, I added a splashy brushstroke pattern from new Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack.  The 6 x 6 size is wonderful for card making.
