When a new catalog comes out from Stampin' Up! it is such an exciting time! I love to look at the new products (and play) and get inspiration for the new ideas for projects. Another fun event with a new catalog is that there are a lot of different swaps. If you don't know a swap is, it is where you make a number, usually 12, of the same card and send them to the organizer. Then she will sort them out and you will get back 11 different cards. So, basically you are swapping your card with 12 other people, just through the mail. This is a great way to get inspiration from others and samples of the different stamp sets in the catalog.
The above card is one of my cards that I made for a Sale-A-Bration swap. Due to the holidays, I was running behind in working on my cards, so I needed something fast and easy. I was excited about the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set because it had a coordinating punch, the Small Bloom punch. You all know how I love punches. You can get both of these for FREE during Sale-A-Bration.
During Sale-A-Bration, January 3 through March 31st, you can choose a FREE products from the brochure for every $50 you spend on products before shipping and tax. If you spend $100 or more there are additional options for FREE products. You can order products from the annual or mini catalogs.
To make this project you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
- scraps for flowers
One thing that I really like about this card is that it only has two colors, black and Petal Pink. Did you notice the Champagne Rhinestones on the flowers stamped with black ink? They are one of many beautiful products in the 2020 Stampin' Up! Mini catalog. For the Rhinestone on the Petal Pink flower I used a black Sharpie to color it.
You could change the whole look of this card, just by changing the color of the middle flower. How fun!
Thank you for stopping by today. I really appreciate you taking time out of your day.
Happy Stampin and
