My Top Picks From The Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog

These are the 2020 Mini Catalog products I am most excited to play with right now!  Some of them were featured in my Catalog Launch Party Lives this past Friday.  If you didn't catch them live, here are the links:

At the bottom of this post are my ordering specials from my Launch Party, but they end at midnight ET tonight, so place your order today to take advantage of them.

Nicole's Favorites from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog

You should probably get yourself a snack and drink, because I have a lot of favorites (this is my favorite catalog ever in the 20 years I've been using Stampin' Up!).  I also will tell you that I don't always buy everything in a suite.  My policy is to buy what I absolutely love, so that's what I'm showing you.  

Stampin' Up! Botanical Prints Product Medley | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

The Botanical Prints Medley combines the convenience and product coordination of a kit with the creative freedom to make whatever you like.  Love that!

Stampin' Up! Positve Thoughts stamp set | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

The realistic, solid images are what drew my eye to this set.  That makes it easy to ink and stamp in one color, or get creative and use sponge daubers to add multiple colors to the image.  I also love the "Hugs Prayers Love" sentiment.  **Heads up: coming in February are dies to go with this set** 

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella bundle | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

Imagine the adorable possibilities with this bundle!  Stamp and punch umbrellas on colored cardstock, or use Designer Series Paper for a playful touch.  Use the flower images to stamp a background, or add them to the boots for cheerful note.  The "Hello Sunshine" sentiment is a favorite of mine since I send a lot of Thinking of You cards.

Stampin' Up! Stitched So Sweetly Dies | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

The name of these dies describes them perfectly.  Every time I've used them on a project, my first words are, "These are so sweet!"  I have an idea to die-cut and layer every single one of those stitched scalloped rectangles using a fun mix of Designer Series Paper.

Parisian Blossoms Suite

Stampin' Up! Petal pink Metallic Edge Ribbon | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

My favorite thing about this ribbn is that it's pink and has a soft shine.  It ties easily into nice, chubby bows and just makes me happy!

Stampin' Up! Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

I squealed out loud when I saw these in the catalog!  Champagne is a soft, warm metallic and it look beautiful with the rest of the Parisian Blossoms suite.

Stampin' Up! Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

Following through with the Champagne theme, this paper has touches of Champagne Foil in it.  I love the paper as is, but I also love sponging Soft Suede ink on it to give it a vintage flair.

Stampin' Up! Parisian Blossoms stamp set | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

Stampin' Up! Parisian Dies | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

This bundle is unlike anything I have in my collection, so I had to get them.  The Eiffel Tower dies cut out both the stamped image and a stand-alone detailed image.  

Tropical Oasis Suite

Stampin' Up! Braided Burlap Trim | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

My favorite thing about this trim is that it can be easily frayed by gently pulling apart the fibers.  Love that look!

Stampin' Up! Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

The many bright colors of this Designer Series Paper won my heart, but then I saw the pineapples and I can't stop playing with it!

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical stamp set | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

Stampin' Up! In The Tropics Dies | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

That little pineapple!  The palm trees!  The fonts!  *swoon*  I don't usually get dies that match so specifically with one stamp set, but I LOVE these shapes and images.  I have nothing like these and am in anticipation of the hours of fun to be had!

Peaceful Poppies Suite

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

The colors grabbed my eye, but I am especially partial to that third pattern from the left.  The Pool Party background mixed with the Poppy Parade poppies is gorgeous!

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Poppies Elements | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

I almost didn't get these because all I saw were the printed and colored die-cuts.  But then I saw there were printed vellum, printed watercolor, and printed black die-cuts and I had to try them.  Wow!  My favorite so far is to use Stampin' Blends Markers to color on the backside of the printed vellum pieces.  It's a showstopper!

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments stamp set | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

This is a fantastic, all-purpose sentiment set.  This + Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper + Peaceful Poppies Elements would make all the gorgeous cards you'd need.  I love the swirliness of the font, too!

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies stamp set | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

Stampin' Up! Painted Labels Dies | Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

See those splatters and watercolor wash images in the Painted Poppies set?  You can use those to add color to the outline images!  And it looks breathtaking!  The dies are versatile because I can pair images and sentiments from other sets with them (although there are dies to cut the poppies and leaves from Painted Poppies).  That little fancy scallop trim piece will look so sweet peeking from a cardstock layer!
