The Occasions Mini is Here!

It's here!  I don't know how Stampin' Up! does it, but they've outdone themselves again!  Each mini that comes out seems to get better and better.  I'm in love with just about everything!  If you would like to take a look at it, just click on the picture below.  I also have links to the catalog (Flash and pdf) and the supply lists for each project in it on my "Stampin' Up! Catalogs" Page.  Now see what I did with some of the goodies!



This is the first card that I've made using some of my new Occasions Mini stuff.  The new stamp set is called Mixed Bunch (p. 17).  Yes, it also has a coordinating punch called Blossom Punch (p. 17).  I just love that!  Just think of all of the possibilities with this stamp set & punch together!  I stamped the flower onto Baja Breeze card stock with Island Indigo ink.  I then sponged the edges of the flower with the same ink.  The flower layer underneath was stamped with another flower image in the set and Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White card stock.

Do you see any more new stuff on it?  I actually used quite a few.  I just love the new pleated ribbon.  I used the Riding Hood Red 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon (p. 12).  The beautiful designer paper is called Twitterpated (p. 13).  Now, for one of my favorite new items...the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies (p. 7) and the coordinating Adorning Accents Impressions Embossing Folders (p. 7).  I used the Edgelits Die on the bottom border of the DSP and used the Impressions Folder on the Pear Pizzazz layer underneath.  Both items really add a lot to this card.  I Love Them!
