Patterned Occassions-Friday Mashup 105

I barely used my Patterned Occassions stamp set during Sale-a-Bration.  Lately that seems to be my modus operandi--never using current products and feeling like I'm always late to to market new promotions.  Stampin' Up has kicked it up into high gear for their 25th anniversary and there are new promotions on a regular basis.
This weekend I put together a couple of cards using a layout from The Friday Mashup Challenge Blog.
I don't know if I've said it before but I love this DSP.  But then I love everything flowers and bright colors.  This was a fun layout too.  I usually don't like a two panelled card (it's that even thing) but it works here. 
Yesterday I received my Stampin' Success magazine and saw a few sneak peeks of products that will be available with the new Stampin' Up year.  The new In-Colors were used in the samples and I must say I am surprised to see what will be offered.  I fully expected bold colors but that is not the case.  I will wait to pass my final judgement until after I see them IRL.  Demonstrators will be able to preorder some of the new stuff on April 24th--can't wait!  You too can get in on the pre-order if you become a demonstrator.  If you become a Demonstrator before the end of May you will also receive extra incentive.  Call me!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I haven't used my Patterned Occasions at all... I got mine so late in SAB. No matter, your card is adorable! Love your flower accents. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  2. Your card is lovely. I love that elephant image. Thanks for playing along with us at the Friday Mashup this week!
