I’m back to share some more projects that I’ve made using brand new items from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions mini catalog! This new catalog is chocked full of new stamps in wood and clear mount options, pretty Designer pattern papers, washi tapes, embossing folders, dies, embellishments and much more! With themes like Easter, baby, birthday, graduation, nautical, woodland animals, florals, Mother’s and Father’s Day along with trendy hot colors and patterns these new items will get you ready for all your spring paper crafting projects.
For my first project (shown above) I used one of the flower stamps from the Peaceful Petals set and heat embossed it in white all over gray cardstock, adding the sentiment in black. I again embossed the flower but on pink cardstock and used markers to add some shades of pinks, cut it out and mounted it my card with foam dots.
Next I used the bunny stamp from the Eggstra Spectacular set and a border from Perfect Pennants. I used the polka dot border and watermark ink to stamp the card base and then used it again with different colored inks for the background. I embossed the purple cardstock layer using the Arrows Textured Impressions folder. Then I die cut a speech bubble from the Word Bubbles dies and stamped on the bunny and colored him with markers, adding some grass and color to the sentiment with markers too.
Lastly I die cut two pink scalloped ovals, scored across the top and glued them together to make a shaped card. I die cut a slightly smaller oval from purple pattern paper and embossed it with the Arrows Textured Impressions folder and adhered it to the card. I die cut a small oval from white cardstock and stamped only the lamb from the Eggstra Spectacular set, coloring him with markers, then stamped the sentiment on the card. I embellished with some ribbon, bakers twine and a large rhinestone.
I hope you enjoyed checking out some more new Stampin’ Up! products. The items in this catalog are only available for a limited time, from now through June 1st, so be sure to contact your Stampin’ up! demonstrator or order on line to get yours soon.
