It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Today is an exciting day as the July to December Mini Catalogue has gone live!  I love this Mini Catalogue as I love all of the Christmas holiday products!  Stampin' Up! has hit it out of the park with this catalogue and for the very first time, we have a Sale-a-Bration Brochure to go along with it!  Yes, you read that right!  It's Sale-a-Bration time!  For every $60 Cdn that you spend, you'll be able to choose a product for FREE from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure or you can choose a free item at the $120 level!  What's on your wish list?

I'm sharing a card that I created in a recent Sketch Challenge featuring products from the Whimsy & Wonder Suite.  I think this is my favourite suite from the catalogue!  I just love all of the trees.  

I also used two of my other favourites from the Mini Catalogue - White Glittered Organdy Ribbon that I coloured with my Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends and the Silver Foil Specialty Paper.


  1. Cut Soft Succulent cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Silver Foil Specialty Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and trim off about 1/2" from one edge using the Basic Border Die.
  3. Adhere to the card base with the point facing to the left using Stampin' Seal.
  4. Cut Designer Series Paper 2 1/2" x 4"
  5. Cut Basic White cardstock 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"
  6. Stamp sentiment at the bottom of the Basic White piece using Soft Succulent ink.
  7. Stamp trees using Soft Succulent ink - Stamp one tree and then stamp a second one to the right without re-inking your stamp
  8. Adhere to the Designer Series Paper using Dimensionals.
  9. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  10. Cut 8" of ribbon and colour using Dark Soft Succulent Stampin' Blend.
  11. Tie a bow and adhere to the bottom of the trees.
  12. Colour 7 Rhinestones using Dark Soft Succulent Stampin' Blend
  13. Adhere randomly to trees.
