Welcome to our first blog hop of 2014. This month we are excited to show you the new products available in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog as well as a preview of the free products you can earn through Sale-a-bration at the end of January.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Janice Warhank at Janice’s Papercraft Playground, #9 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My card today is made using the Perfect Pennants stamp set and Banner Framelit Dies from the Stampin’ Up! 2014 Occasions Catalog.  That “Make a Wish” statement seemed to go really well with our build a cupcake punch. 🙂 

I punched the cupcake out and sponged it a bit, then embossed it with iridescent ice embossing powder and mounted it on dimensionals.  I accented the bottom (stamped) washi tape with crystal effects. Little scraps of the silver glimmer paper give it that extra pop, that the pictures just don’t give justice.

Have fun enjoying the hop!
