Pals Blog Hop Feb 2012 - Occassions Mini Catalog & Sale-A-Bration

It's the occasion of the year as the Stampin' Pretty Pals share some fabulous cards and projects featuring Stampin' Up!'s Occasion Mini and Sale-A-Bration products on today's Pals Blog Hop!

You've probably hopped over from Sue Bendinsky at My Color Creations  I'm stop number 7 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for paper projects showcasing Stampin' Up!'s Occasion Mini and Sale-A-Bration products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals!

Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

From the Mini Occassions come the new Framelits Dies which are hard to resist. This one is called the Labels collection. Also, showing off one of the brand new stamp sets called: Apothecary Art. I really love how they match up hand an hand.

DSP is also from the Occassions Mini Catalog called: Attic Boutique and one of my favorites. For the ribbon, I used Crumb Cake 1/2" Seam Binding along with lots of basic pearls as you can see in the picture below.

For the coloring, I used the Watercolor Wonder Crayons which are fabulous especially when your trying to match up colors.  

For this card, I used one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets called: Fresh Vintage and used an Embossed Resist technique to create this one. Almost was able to get all of the different images from this stamp set on this one card, but missing only one, a postage.

Here is a close up of one of the images from the set. First I heat embossed with clear embossing powder all of the images onto the card, than I pick up a stamping sponge and sponged the entire card with Marina Mist ink.  

Here, I used the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch to help me add a few flowers onto the card. My luck was that it was a perfect match for a couple of the images from the set, including the middle flower which I used Cherry Cobbler ink for the center.
