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:
