Occasions Mini Fun

So how much is everyone enjoying the new Occasions Mini from Stampin' Up!   So many fun products!!    Love the balloons.   Nothing says celebration and fun like balloons!   The Balloon Celebration stamp set has so many fun elements and sentiments.    There is even a coordinating punch with two size balloons!

I have to say this is slowly going to be one of my favorite stamp sets.

Here is my birthday balloon card made with this week's Freshly Made Sketch.

Ingredients to make the balloon card:
Stamp Sets:   Balloon Celebration, Cottage Greetings
Ink:   Basic Black, Versamark, Mint Macaroon
Paper:   Whisper White, Basic Black,  It's My Party Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  It's My Party Enamel Dots, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Whisper White Embossing Powder
Tools:   Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, Project Life Corner Rounder

My second card is made with the A Nice Cuppa stamp set.   How great is this tea cup stamp set with coordinating die!   I can tell you enough how happy I am there is a die to help me cut out the center of the handle for the tea cup.

When I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch of the week.   I knew I wanted to use it with the A Nice Cuppa stamp set.    The English Garden designer series paper was a perfect pair up for the stamp set.   How great is it that the stamp set even has a sentiment to fit the tea cup that says World's Best Mother.    How perfect is that for Mother's Day.

Ingredients to make the teacup card:
Stamp Sets:   A Nice Cuppa
Ink:   Blushing Bride, Primrose Petals
Paper:   Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper, English Garden Designer Series Paper
Accessories:   Subtles Candy Dots, Blushing Bride Ruffled Ribbon
Tools:  Cups & Kettles Framelits, Scalloped Trim Ribbon

I have to admit that I haven't liked that Mint color very much - but I LOVE it on your card. The soft balloons, little enamel dots and paper - with a pop of black - is a fabulous look. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
