2018 Sale-a-bration & Occasions Sneak Peek Card

Hi Friends! Today's card that I'm sharing with you is one I made for the "Leader's Project Sheet Group" that I belong to. I used lots of new products from the 2018 Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues coming out next month (a great perk of being a demonstrator is getting to play with new products early!). If you live in Canada and would like to get your hands on these new catalogues, leave a comment or pop me an email ( and I'll be happy to mail them to you. 

There's a GORGEOUS all-inclusive kit in the 2018 Occasions called "Lots of Happy Card Kit" that contains everything you need to create 20 cards. The stamp set that is included in this kit is terrific and it's what I used on my card. There are four new Watercolour Pencils in the kit too: Lemon Lime Twist, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Flirty Flamingo. I used these (along with Bermuda Bay) to colour in the flowers and leaves. 

I also used the fabulous "Celebrate You" thinlits dies that you can get for FREE with a $60 order during Sale-a-bration! And did you notice that stunning glimmer paper behind the cut words? It's also new and part of the "Myth & Magic" glimmer paper assortment in the 2018 Occasions catalogue. See that beautiful shimmery ribbon? It's part of three roll ribbon pack that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration too!!! Are you getting excited yet? You're truly going to fall in love with all the new products - Stampin' Up! has hit out of the ball park yet again!

I hope you enjoy today's tutorial!
