"Black and White and Poppy Parade all over!"

Oh, how I love a little time to play -- especially when I have a whole stack of new stamps, punches, and accessories to play with!  Yesterday, was a blissful day, as I just closed the doors of my craft room (to shut out the horrible mess the house was in :) and "created away"! AND I don't even feel guilty because it recharged me so, that today I tackled the post-holiday, trashed living quarters -- and it ALMOST sparkles around here. :)
So,.... drum roll, here is a card made with my brand new treasures from the Occasions Mini catalog -- available Jan 4th.

That beautiful flower was stamped in Versamark (using a stamp from the "Mixed Bunch"stamp set), embossed with clear embossing powder, then punched out with it's coordinating punch.  As many of you know, I am NOT a "cutter" -- I hate to cut things out, so a punch that coordinates with a stamp is always at the very top of my list.  And, I can hardly ever resist flowers, so here you go -- another beautiful floral set to add to my huge collection. :)
Another cool new product in the Occasions Mini, are our framelits -- these ones are the the Labels framelits -- large set of nesting shapes -- perfect for scrap book pages, cards, etc.  Along the bottom of the card, I cut that decorative edge along the bottom of the card, with the new "edgelit dies" -- that also have a coordinating little embossing folder -- see that embossed line right along the edge.  They are all really easy to use, and such a stunning effect!  I can't wait for you to try them out.  The sentiment is from a new Sale-a-bration set called "Fresh Vintage".
Of course, for some bling, I added Basic Rhinestones colored black with a Sharpie.

  1. This is a great card. I have yet to use the new punch and framelit. Guess I need to do that. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I especially like the Edgelit die usage and the Labels Framelits...they'll be at the top of my list at our Meet-Up at Jenn's house!

  3. Love this card! I have really hard time reaching for Poppy Parade but I totally love this one!!
