We have some exciting new stuff coming up really soon with the release of the Occasions catalogue and the Sale-a-Bration promotion. I preordered new items in December and have finally found time to sit down and create with it. Today's creation was inspired by Mojo Monday sketch #325 and ColourQ combo #221.
The coffee stamp set is called Perfect Blend and can be found on page 36 of the annual catalogue. It was paired with lots of brand new items, though:
- The Natural 5/8'' Chevron ribbon is a new addition in the Occasions catalogue (p. 18). Fun, modern and neutral, it'll be easy to use on many projects!
- To add the "Celebrate" tag on the coffee cup, I used the Starburst Sayings stamp set (occasions catalogue, p. 34) and the matching Starburst Framelits Dies.
- We have new wooden elements! The kit includes an assortment of shapes (arrows, circles, bubbles, chevrons, hearts, etc.); here, I used three chevrons to mirror the ribbon pattern and add dimension. See them on page 18 of the Occasions catalogue.
- You're going to love the new Film Framelits dies, whether you're a scrapbooker or a card maker! The polaroid shape was die-cut using this new Framelits set. it includes five dies, which you can see on page 18 of the Occasions catalogue.
- You'll find a taste of Sale-a-Bration on this card with the Decorative Dots embossing folder I used on the background of my card. I like polka dots - they're flirty and timeless, and the crooked look and placement of those dots have an element of fun and silliness to the embossing! The Pool Party baker's twine and the cork scallop border are also part of the SAB offering, through the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Kit.
