Today is the last day...

to order from the Occasions Mini Catalog as well!! Here are two cards I did for workshops this past month that both use sets from the mini that are NOT carrying over to the new catalog tomorrow...so, get them while you can!!

Here is a card I just love ~ I have to admit that I cased it from a very talented demonstrator named Mary Fish ~ she's also featured in this month's Stampin' Success for all you demonstrators out there! This card has so many layers on it ~ but what a great idea to use this set from the Mini. Lots of stuff going on...you use the Circle Scissor to cut a circle out of Whisper White card stock, then punch a top and bottom using the Word Window punch. You layer your fish into the fishbowl, then attach a Window Sheet onto the back of that top fishbowl layer to make it look like glass! How fun...

Supplies: Stamps: Just Cruisin' By, Polka Dot (background) Paper: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss Ink: Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red Accessories: Pacific Point ribbon, Circle Scissor, Word Window punch, 1" Circle punch, Large Oval punch, transparency sheet, 1/2" Circle punch, Pop-up Glue Dots, Mini Glue Dots

This next card is a Z-fold card using the set And Many Mower. This was the first time I had made a z-fold card...it is SOOO EASY!!! You basically cut a piece of card stock 11 X 4-1/4, then you fold it in half like you would to make a regular sized card, but then you take the front of the card and fold it back in half to meet the original crease. Add a square for your design to overlap the inside of the card and you're finished!! Go try one today...I promise you'll love it!! Plus it's an easy way to showcase some Designer Series Paper. I colored my image on the front using our In Color ink pads and a Blender Pen...but, did you hear, Stampin' Up! is now offering our In Colors in a package of markers!!! Woo Hoo!! Now it is even easier to color images and stamps with the oh-so-popular In Colors!!

Stamps: And Many Mower
Paper: Urban Oasis DSP, Kraft, Naturals White, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Accessories: NONE (I can't believe I made a card without ribbon! ;D)

Come back soon!! I'm going to be showing some great ideas using NEW PRODUCT that's available starting tomorrow!!
