Stampin’ Up! Party Wishes Sneak Peek

I used the new Party Wishes stamp set from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog for my share today.  The catalog goes live on January 5, 2016!  There are so many exciting products in the catalog, I can’t wait to show some of them to you.  If you are already a customer of mine, your catalog is on its way in just a few days.  Yea!  More about that later…

This stamp set is in the It’s My Party Suite, and has really great paper, some new punches (see the cupcakes, candle and balloons?), baker’s twine, enamel dots, washi tape, and more!!  You are going to love this for all of your birthday card needs.

What’s even more exciting, is the Sale-A-Bration event that also starts January 5th and runs until March 31, 2015.  So when you purchase $50 worth of products from Stampin’ Up! you receive one free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  How can you lose?  Wow, for every $50 you spend, you will get to choose another free gift.  If you are a customer of mine, you will also be receiving the Sale-A-Bration brochure very soon.  So, if you are not a customer of mine and you would like one, please  Contact Me for them!

Party WishesThis is a quick and easy card, and I will give you step by step instructions and card stock cuts at the end of the post.  Unfortunately, I cannot post some of the new supplies yet as the catalog has not gone live.  Here is the inside of my Party Wishes birthday card:
