Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Occasion Mini Blog Hop! We're displaying projects made with several of the great new Stampin' Up! dies, stamps and products available starting January 4th. The mini catalog has a lot of different styles and fun new ideas!
If you've followed the hop in order, you arrived from Twila's Stamp a Little Longer blog and enjoyed her cutie pie creations with the PS I Love You set. Should you get lost or want to chat about the hop, join us on the Stampin' Addicts website chat thread here: http://www.stampinaddicts.com/forums/general-stampin-talk/8666-join-us-2011-occasions-mini-blog-hop.html
I'm using the Bordering on Romance set on page 11 of the Occasions mini. It has coordinating Edgelits and Embossing edges too which will make for a lot of fun possibilities. My first card uses the MOJO Monday sketch MOJO221. I like the set with these bright colors, and the new Doily Embosslit sets off the colored circle layers nicely.
The card has a hidden brad which hinges at the So Saffron colored layers.
This next card design is from a swap I received from Melissa Packer. She credited Leslie Miller. Do you love the fun fold and great use for designer series paper? Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink with just a touch of Certainly Celery are so springy and reminded me of dogwood so that's the direction I went for coloring. Then, I couldn't help but add the pink mini bling from the Blossom Builders kit on page 18 to the center of the flowers. (I'll share measurements on Monday.)
On this third card, I used StazOn for a bold outline for the images instead of stamping with markers as I did on the previous cards. I was hoping for a weird retro textile look with this one, but I seem to have just managed weird. :) My coloring channels cool first grader instead of the cool messy, outside the lines a little look, and my camera is giving me trouble too! All together now....~imagine~ what I was attempting.... :)
