Sew Fabulous!

This card features the new Sew Suite and Pattern Pieces stamp sets (both featured in the new Occasions Mini). The new Sweet Buttons Embosslit was used for the fabulous buttons! The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set So Happy for You. And I don't want to forget, our fabulous Pom Pom trim was used on this card. This card was designed by a fellow demo at a recent get together. It was sew fun to make! Enjoy!

Petal Cone Flower Vase

This fabulous creation was made by my wonderful upline, Lisa. She made this for me at our last meeting and I just have to share it. It uses the Petal Cone Die and the Fun Flowers Bigz Die (both of which can be found in the new Occasions Mini). She also used some of our new Big Buttons and the Love Letter Designer Series Paper. Also, the new You're a Gem stamp set (also available in the new Occasions Mini) and Artistic Etchings were used. Thanks for looking! Enjoy!

Easter Blossoms and Springtime Vintage

Love this card I recently made at my upline's home. She came up with this card and I really like it. It uses the Easter Blossoms stamp set and new Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper, both which can be found in the Occasions Mini. Get them while you can! We also used the Trinkets accessories, Tulip Frame Die, Top Note Die and pearls. Also used seam binding for the ribbon. Love that seam binding. It is so easy to work with and it really dresses up a card! Enjoy!

Take a Spin!

This is a really fun new stamp set, Take a Spin. It features four fun stamps where you put Game Spinner Hands in the center. This card was designed by a fellow SU demo in our area. We used Perfect Plum and Blushing Bride for the basic colors. I love how it turned out! Enjoy!

Nature Walk Vintage Thank You

Here is another card I made with Nature Walk. Although I did make it into a thank you card, it would also make a wonderful thinking of you card by just changing the sentiment. I used Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip. Also used the new lace ribbon, vintage brads and Botanical Gazette DSP. I used the Vintage Wallpaper textured embossing folder as the background. Enjoy!

I Heart You

Here is a simple, fun Valentine's Day card using our stencils and the new "Bliss" stamp set which can be earned for free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase. I also used the new red glimmer paper, modern label, round tab and small heart punch, jumbo chocolate brad, filigree desinger brad, Crumb Cake and Real Red ink, chocolate chip paper and twine. Enjoy!

Nature Walk and You're a Gem

Here is a card I made with the new Nature Walk stamp set available now in the new Occasions Mini catalog. The sentiment Friend comes from the new You're a Gem stamp set. I also used the First Edition DSP and the striped yellow ribbon. Enjoy!

Create a Cupcake and Cupcake Punch

Here is a really cute card I cased from another SU demo. It features the new cupcake punch and create a cupcake stamp set which are featured in the new Occasions Mini. I also used the polka dots embossing folder, the eyelet border punch, itty bitty shapes punch, pearls, the crimper, pretty in pink ribbon. Colors used were real red, old olive and crumb cake. Enjoy!

Clearly For You Box

I love this new stamp set "Clearly for You" from the Occasions Mini. It is very vintage and includes 12 stamps. I used it on a little box from from the Bigz Itty Bitty Box and Envelope die. It will be perfect to give someone a small gift like jewelry or even a gift card. I used real red, tempting turquoise and soft suede colors. I stamped the background image from the stamp set to make the strip of paper I used to wrap around the box. Also used the Decorative Label Punch, oval punch and the new 3/4" X 15/16" oval punch. Enjoy! P.S. The box size is 2 inches by 2 inches. The stamp set Clearly for You is available in the new Occasions Mini catalog and is available in clear mount and wood mount.

Another Valentine Treat!

Here is another fun special Valentine treat I helped my son make for his special Valentine at school. We used the Box #2 Bigz die and glued two boxes together so we could put candy in both sides. He stamped the robots from the Lots of Bots stamp set (available in the big catty). He also stamped the BBF Best Bots Forever sentiment and punched it out with the large heart punch. The To and From Tag stamp was used. We punched an oval shape out of the center of the box and tied a ribbon through it. This Valentine will go to a Second Grade. Hope he likes it. Enjoy!

Cheers to You

Here is another really simple, quick card I made for my son who is turning 21 this week. I used the the stamp set "Cheers to You" (#114944) and the sentiment from the Bring on the Cake birthday stamp set from the new Occasions Mini catalog. This is a really simple card, but it is perfect for my son who doesn't like all the ribbon and bows. I stamped "Cheer to You" on the inside from the stamp set. He loved it. That's all that matters! Enjoy!
