Occasions Mini Sneak Peek

I had so much fun playing with new stamps from the Occasions Mini. The Occasions Mini will be out in January, but as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I got to order this month. I haven't stamped in a while (hence, my sporadic appearances here), but today was the last day of preschool before Christmas break so I promised myself that I would stamp for fun today with my new stamps.

This card is based on this week's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I used the new set Fox and Friends and the new Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder for the Big shot.

I should add that starting with the Occasions Mini Stampin' Up! is offering their stamps as clear mount stamps which I now LOVE. You can still get the wood mount, too, you just have more options! I had never been all that interested in clear mount stamps before, but one stamp set and I am hooked!

So here is my card using the 2S4Y sketch....

Materials for this card: Fox and Friends stamp set (Occasions Mini); Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stock; Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad; Chat Room Rub-Ons (Occasions Mini); Chocolate Chip 1/4 Inch Grosgrain Ribbon; White Gel Pen, Perfect Polka Dot Textured Impressions Folder and Big Shot; 1 3/4 Inch Circle Punch; Stampin' Dimensionals.
