Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Expires 6/30!

Stampin up delightful bicycle
Last chance means you still have an opportunity through June 30 to order from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini catalog.  Love the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware on p. 7?  How about Essence of Love on p. 18?  Need to stock up on Afternoon Tea Designer Paper on p. 8?   Whatever you have been contemplating, don't let these last few days disappear along with some limited edition products (you never know what Stampin' Up! will or won't continue in the fall/winter catalog).

Today's post illustrates some of my favorite Occasions Mini products . . . the Time for You stamp set (p. 13, I can never decide which I enjoy more . . . the bicycle or the bench) and Summer Picnic Paper (p. 16).  My INKSPIRATION comes from Today's Splitcoast Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC174) . . . adding brads to the main image and no other embellishments.  The sketch  challenge comes from the creative mind of Taylor VanBruggen.

Things began with the bicycle image, inked in Basic Black and stamped on Whisper White.  Using Stampin' Up! Markers, I colored in various bicycle parts and the sweet flowers.  Bashful Blue brads were added to the wheels.  The frame was created using Summer Picnic Designer Series paper shaped up with Nestabilities Rectangles and a Cuttlebug. 

A stripe pattern from Summer Picnic Designer Series is layered on Old Olive card stock.  I inadvertently grabbed the retired Corner Rounder Punch which is a little wider but the current 3/16" version works, too.   Here's my tutorial on how to create a scalloped border with a Corner Rounder Punch.  Since I was limited to brads as embellishments in the Limited Supplies Challenge, I added a row of Pumpkin Pie brads for some jazz.  TIP:  I used a Paper Piercer and Template to help with spacing and alignment of the brads. 

The bottom banner is a subtle green stripe of Summer Picnic paper.  "Delightful" is from It's All Good and is stamped in Pumpkin Pie in Whisper White.  Here's my tutorial on how to season solid stamps like this one to get even ink coverage.  I then popped out the sentiment with a 1" Circle Punch and attached it with several Stampin' Dimensionals to a 1 1/4" Circle Punch of Old Olive card stock.

Hugs and Pretties and Have a "Delightful" Weekend . . . Mary

  1. I really like this! Different scallops, a touch of coloring, mixing up pp…so very nice. I like that you were able to mix up stamps from different sets, too!
