Occasions Mini Samples


The following cards are copied from, or inspired by, samples in the new Occasions Mini Catalog.  I hope you enjoy them!

This card was inspired by the cover of the mini and uses the new Framed Tulips textured impressions embossing folder, new Blossom Petal punch, and new Fun Flowers Bigz L die!

This card is for that someone special. Believe it or not, I was inspired by the card on page 5...honest!  I know, it looks nothing like it, but it is where I started.  The Love sentiment was stamped then punched twice with the curly label XL punch to produce this fun shape.  I repeated that for the Real Red mat behind it.

Check out pages 20-21 for this one.  Pretty much an exact copy although mine may not as perfect as the one in the's close enough for me.  Punches:  Build a Cupcake, Scallop Edge, Word Window, and Wide Oval (but I think a smaller oval might work better...the Large Oval I think). Plus that fun new Pompom Trim!  See all three of the fun colors on page 35.

I will be in Nashville, TN, next week (1/11 - 1/15) for the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference!  I know I will be coming back with some amazing and fun ideas to share with you.  I will return calls & emails when I return.  Until then ... Hugs, Karie
