Sneak Peek: Party Animal Designer Series Paper for FabFri101

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I am able to pre-order from Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Occasions Catalog and start earning Sale-a-Bration products on December 1.  Because I attended Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage event earlier this month, I was able to pre-pre-order a couple of items.  Yippee!  For today’s FabFriday sketch challenge, I’ve made a card that showcases a new product in the upcoming Occasions Catalog – Party Animal Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card:

And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:


Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Party Animal Designer Series Paper.  The Party Animal suite of products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Occasions Catalog is designed around a super-fun birthday celebration – and people of all ages can enjoy these fun colors and patterns. I snapped a few closeups of this paper to give you an idea of how awesome the pages are.  Enjoy!Party Animal Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
  • A Perfect Pair.  While there’s a great stamp set that coordinates with this paper, there’s no sentiment that addresses the super-fun animals for which this paper is named.  I reached back to my Annual Catalog – Balloon Builders – for the perfect sentiment!  Not only does “PARTY ANIMAL” give me the words I wanted, but it’s playful and fun, too.  Balloon Builders gives me a perfect sentiment for this awesome paper.  If you don’t already have this set, go ahead and drop it into your shopping cart – you won’t regret it.  🙂

  • Color Combination.  The colors for this card were pulled right from the Party Animal Designer Series Paper.  The paper features a variety of great colors:  Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.  I love how these colors work together – so bright and cheery.  I chose to feature Emerald Envy (green), Pacific Point (blue) and Crushed Curry (yellow).  If you like this color combination, too, feel free to save this:Stampin' Up!
