FINALLY I am getting down to playing with my new goodies from the Occasions Mini Catalog and wow am I loving them!

Today I wanted to show you a card that I have mailed out – in kit form – to all of my customers along with samples & their Occasions Mini Catalogs…they will be able to make this cute card for themselves & I am hoping they love it as much as I do…

My card uses two brand new stamp sets featured in the Occasions Mini along with the FABULOUS new Framelits Dies – they are much like Nesties and I am so thankful for this wonderful new addition to our line!

My card base is Pool Party onto which I layered a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock – I love this double layer look for a backdrop.

I textured a piece of Soft Suede cardstock using my Big Shot & Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and wrapped around a piece of the brand new Pool Party Seam Binding (find it on pg 23 of the Occasions Mini).

I then added this layer to my card base and proceeded to add all the fun details…

Firstly I adhered a strip of beautiful paper from Attic Boutique DSP (pg 23) to that textured base and then was the really fun bit…

I took a beautiful framed stamp from the set Apothecary Art (pgs 24 & 25) and stamped it using Early Espresso Ink onto Pool Party cardstock – and cut it out using my Big Shot and a Framelit from the Labels Collection (pg 6) – and WOW was that easy and fun to do!

It is so easy to get perfect placement using the framelits as you can see exactly what you are doing as you work – look how perfect it turned out…

LOVE it – Framelits are my new favorite toys!!!  I then stamped that cute teacup & flowers using stamps from the new set Tea Shoppe (pg 19) and cut them out using my Paper Snips & a Craft Knife.

For a finishing touch I added a sentiment, also found in the set Tea Shoppe and punched it out using my Modern Label Punch – I decided to add a cute Pearl at each end for a finishing touch, and added it to my card just below the ribbon…

And there is one fun and cute card that you can make for any occasion simply by changing the sentiment.

And here are the images in the two beautiful brand new sets that I used to make my card…both are available in your choice of wood or clear mount versions – click on the pictures below to view them in the online store…

Here is Apothecary Art – those framed stamps co-ordinate PERFECTLY with the Labels Collection of Framelits so that you can quickly & easily die cut them out for a very professional look…

Here is Tea Shoppe – check out those gorgeous tea cups & sentiments…

And here you can see the shapes that those Label Framelit Dies make…they make it easy to make frames and nesting features and are found on pg 6 – you get 6 in a pack, the largest of which measures 5  7/16″ wide and here are those beautiful shapes…
