The New Holiday Mini is here!

Here it is - the new 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog! There are some GREAT things in this mini. Check out the Sweet Treat Cups and the new Sweet Centers stamp set to go with it. Can you image the possibilities! Not just for Halloween but for any and every occasion. Hey, all of you teachers out there, this would be a wonderful project for your kids to do or just something that you can give to the class!
There is something for everyone and every holiday - Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas (check out the Holy Family stamp set on page 23!). The new Designer Series Papers are so lovely and unique. And Stampin' Up! has teamed up with Build-A-Bear to offer a wonderful line of BAB stamping and scraping products - everything from stamps to specialty paper and dies for the Big Shot.
I couldn't resist the new Shimmer Paints offered in the Mini and I was anxious to try them out. So here is a simple card where I just die cut the snowflakes and used a dauber to add the Frost White Shimmer Paint to Whisper White cardstock and the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to Melon Mambo cardstock. I hope you can see the effect in the photo. It adds the perfect amount of shimmer.
See, a Holiday card doesn't need to be in the traditional colors. Try something a little different! Here I used Whisper White, Melon Mambo (new In-Color), and Bashful Blue. Are you having trouble coming up with new color combinations? Try the Color Combo Chart on the right. Just click, pick a color or two that you want to try and the Color Combo will do the rest and show you all of the color combinations that you can use. Give it a try!
I'll have more tomorrow - Happy Stampin'
