Blog Tour #2, Stop #15

How exciting! The Occasions Mini Catalog blog tour is finally here. I'm stop #15 on the tour but I'm certainly not the last stop. Be sure to check out all of the other blogs along the tour for some wonderful inspiration along the way!! I promise you won't be disappointed.

For my blog tour I featured the Choo Choo stamp set which is soooo cute. I just love it.

Products used for this project:
Choo Choo stamp set
Lovely as a Tree Stamp set
Right on Track wheel
Family Phrases stamp set
Oval scallop punch
Oval punch
Bashful blue ink
Old olive ink
Chocolate chip ink
Pacific point ink
Tangerine tango ink
Riding Hood red ink
Whisper White cardstock

I used a stampin' up dauber to apply the bashful blue ink as well as the old olive ink. To make the clouds I used the scallop oval punch and applied a little dotto to the back to make it stick then daubed over the background leaving a "cloud." I then daubed a little over the cloud so it wasn't so perfect. I then stamped my choo choo train stamp and cut out with my SU scissors and applied with dimensionals. I really love this set, it is so versatile. You can not only use it for birthday cards but for scrapbookk pages as well. (I must mention that this card was inspired by a stamper on Split Coast Stampers).

There is a promotion going on right now but hurry, the offer ends on the 30th of this month. For every $40.00 you spend on product from the Occasions Mini catalog you will receive an under $10.00 stamp set for FREE!! These sets are on page 208 of the catalog and include:

Blog tour and other goodies

Here's another reminder about the blog tour that is happening tomorrow, April 27, 2009. It is for ONE DAY ONLY and will go from 8 am EST until midnight that same night. You will have the chance to tour 20 different blogs and see many beautiful ideas from the occasions mini catalog. Don't forget also that Stampin' Up is holding a promotion until the end of this month including the occasions mini catalog. For every $40.00 in product you buy from the mini catalog you can choose a free under $10 stamp set on page 208 of your catalog. What a great promotion. There's so many cute things in the mini catalog that it won't be hard to choose. Remember this promotion only lasts until the 30th of this month so hurry and get your orders in. You can email me for more information or if you would like to place an order. Even if you are out of state and would like to place an order that is not a problem, just let me know.

Here are a few project shares that I've done. The card is a lift from someone on SCS but can't remember who and the post it note holder was an idea from Dawn Griffith (another SU demo who has fab ideas and is a huge inspiration to me). These are the projects that we made at club the other night. Enjoy!

I used the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set for this card along with the colors: chocoate chip, baja breeze and tangerine tango. Love this color combination.

This is using the Sale A Bration stamp set as well as the SAB designer series paper.

What a great way to "GET CONNECTED" with others

Stampin' Up is holding a very fun promotion this month which will run until April 30th. For every $40.00 you spend in the Occasions Mini catalog (which is over on the left <---) you may choose one of the under $10.00 stamp sets which are on page 208 of the Idea Book and catalog. How cool is that? Hostesses also benefit from this awesome promotion. If you host a workshop of $150.00 you also would get to choose an under $10 set for FREE!!! So, you could potentially earn a lot of these cute sets for free. If you have any questions about this promotion please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to go over it with you. Happy stampin' and scrappin'.
