Celebration Blooms - Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home

   My card today uses some products from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Jan.-June 2022 catalog.  Yes you read that right, I have sneak peek products 2 months early!  One of the many perks of being a demo is not only early catalog pre-orders but also some even earlier ordering opportunities associated with Stampin' Up! demonstrator events.  We've got just such an event coming up next week called On Stage @ Home that I'm attending and the Blessings of Home product suite is what we were able to order early this time.  If you're interested in joining Stampin' Up! now is a great time with a discounted price on the Starter Kit.  During the month of November for just $75 you get to choose $125 worth of products to customize your Starter Kit.  Click here to join my team!

  Onto to the new stuff!  I used the current Color Hues Challenge for my color palette.  Orange and Brown just have a great fall feeling! And the Heart & Home DSP has a lovely pattern in just these colors that I used as part of my inspiration.

  The base is Cinnamon Cider and then I used a piece of the lovely Heart & Home DSP along one edge.  Before adhering the DSP to the card front I added a length of Pale Papaya Open Weave ribbon for a subtle bit of shine down the front.

  The image is stamped in Smoky Slate and then colored in with Stampin' Blends (colors listed below).  Once the image was colored and cut out I highlighted a few areas with Wink of Stella but try as I might I could not capture it in a photo.  I also stamped, colored and fussy cut 2 of the smaller blooms and then popped them up for some added dimension.

  I cut a few Pale Papaya sprigs with the Flowers of Home dies and tucked them behind the main floral image and then adhered the whole thing with dimensionals.  

  The sentiment is from All Squared Away and is embossed in copper embossing powder and is flagged and popped.  A cute fork bow (tutorial here) and a sprinkling of pearls finishes off this beauty.

  I hope you enjoyed getting this sneak peek because I certainly enjoyed showing you!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
