New Year...New Stampin' Up Products!!
Updated: Jan 15, 2021
2020 is behind us! Personally, it was an especially difficult year filled with loss and heart break as I said goodbye to one of my closest friends in April. However, one thing that kept my spirits up throughout the year as the pandemic unfolded was paper crafting and sharing that joy with friends!
Just for those wondering, social distancing prior to and during events, masks and sanitizer all contributed to none of the people in these photos getting COVID-19 during any of these in person meet ups.
As you may already know, as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I have early access to many of the upcoming new releases, including the ability to earn FREE SALE-a-bration products prior to the catalog going live. You can start earning SALE-a-bration products beginning January 5th, 2021!!
When I saw this adorable stamp set, Darling Donkeys (155264 available Jan 5, 2021) I couldn't help but smile! I knew I had to do a card with him so I chose this easy Double Z Fold card with some simple stamping that is perfect for all crafters from beginners to avid.
Notice that super cute Designer Series Paper? That's another SALE-a-bration item called Oh So Ombre (155225 available Jan 5, 2021) that comes in an assortment of colors. The paper colors used here are Bermuda Bay Cardstock (131197) and Smoky Slate Cardstock (131202).
The donkey is colored in with an assortment of Stampin' Blends which are sold in packs of 2...a light and a dark shade.
I colored the rose using: Dark Just Jade (153107), Dark Real Red (154899), Dark Cinnamon Cider (153105).
I colored the donkey using: Dark Smoky Slate (154904), Dark Soft Suede (154906) and Light and Dark Crumb Cake (154882).
Whatever the New Year brings your way, I hope you are able to stick to your New Year's Resolutions (mine was to start a blog!) and I wish you a year filled with joy, health and lots of crafting!
