Occasions Mini Blog Hop!!!


(for those who see this early, the blog hop officially starts at 7:00am EST so if you came by early, please remember to come back later when all the links are working)

Woo-hoo! It's that time again! Stampin' Addicts is hosting a fabulous Blog Hop to get us all excited about the new Mini that starts in just a few days. I know I sure am excited about it. There are so many cool new toys and beautiful stamps to chose from and we are going to show you a few examples of what you can make with them :)
If you are following the links in the hop, you probably just came from Kandi's site where she did an amazing job with the Button, Button stamp set. Weren't her projects adorable?! I will be featuring the Sew Suite accessories. There are so many fun things that coordinate with each other in this collection, and I love them all! So let's get started!

 These cards feature a peek-a-boo of buttons that are made with the brand new Sweet Buttons embosslit! I just love that thing! And those that know me well know that I must ink everything. I used a marker to add some ink to the raised areas on the buttons to give them some added dimension. The panels on the card fronts are stamped with a new single stamp also, which is about 2¾"x3" and just adorable. I think I will own everything in the Sew Suite collection before long, lol! The little cupcake cup is decorated with more Sweet Buttons on dimensionals and holds some assorted loose candies. I also had to do a whole bunch of stitching on these projects ;-)
  • Stamps: Pattern Pieces
  • Paper: Crumb Cake, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight
  • Ink: Crumb Cake, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight
  •  Other: Big Shot with Movers & Shapers Punch Windows Heart die, Sweet Buttons embosslit, Perfect Setting die, Signo white gel pen, dimensionals, cupcake liner, Circle Scissor

 This is a Message Board I made with a 8x10 stretched canvas. I have been wanting to do a project like this for a while now, and this gave me the perfect excuse! I was excited to work with a the new Designer Fabric, Fabric Designer Brads, and Pom Pom trim. I really like to use those kinds of things on something that will be around for a while ;-)
  • Supplies: 8x10 stretched canvas, Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric, Daffodil Delight Pom Pom trim, Fabric Designer Brads, Chalkboard Decor Elements Sheets, Chipboard sheet, Cork sheets,  Sticky Strip, paper piercer, Pearl Basic Jewels,  hot glue gun, heavy duty stapler, Signo white gel pen, cotton batting

 I really love the colors on this set of projects, but I am a blues and greens kind of gal :) More of the Sweet Buttons embosslit and the addition of the Sweet Stitches jumbo wheel. I took the plunge and unmounted my first wheel! I am so happy I did! This was probably the best wheel to unmount as a first try. I just peeled the rubber off, put some Cling mount on the back, and cut the stitch images apart. I ended up with six 7" long strips of stitch stamps!
I also used the new Framed Tulips embossing folder in the corner of the card.with a little bit of Craft White ink sponged onto it to give it a little vintage feel. The Celery panel has a bunch of Sweet Buttons glued onto it. I even sneaked a little Smooch Pearlized Accent ink onto this card! Can you find it? 
  • Stamps: Sweet Stitches jumbo wheel (unmounted), Teeny Tiny Wishes, Occasional Quotes
  • Paper: Naturals White, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Marina Mist
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Marina Mist
  • Other: Big SHot with Sweet Buttons embosslit, Perfect Setting die, Matchbox die, and Framed Tulips embossing folder, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Modern Label punch, dimensionals, Designer Label punch, 1-3/8" Circle punch, 1/16" punch, Bitty Shapes punch pack, Sticky Strip, Heat Gun, tea light candle

And last but not least, a little 3x3 note card set. I made four 3x3 cards, 2 with Naturals White card stock and 2 with Whisper White. I then made 4 Modern Label punches in each card stock of the sentiments to be attached later. And of course, more Sweet Buttons :-) I put a piece of Sticky Strip on the back of each sentiment so it is an easy peel and stick. The box to hold them all is a Fancy Favor box all decorated with Sweet Stitches, lol! I am having trouble not using these all the time!
  • Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Sweet Stitches jumbo wheel unmounted
  • Paper: Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Old Olive, Whisper White, Naturals White
  • Ink: Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Old Olive
  • Other: Big Shot with Fancy Favor die and Sweet Buttons embosslit and Lots of Tags sizzlet die, Modern Label punch, Designer Label punch, Slit punch (retired), sponges, Signo white gel pen, Sticky Strip
I hope I have inspired many ideas for projects here! I must confess though, I had to force myself not to make a tea light candle box set for this! I will still do it, but I am sure you have all seen those already ;-)
Now, on with the show! Please go visit Betty and see what she has come up with using the Sweet Stitches rub-ons!

So much inspiration here I'm going to have to come back after the hop for another longer look. Terrific use of the patterns pieces single stamp. I've been looking for ideas for that. Love the Fancy Favor and notes too. Great idea for using Sticky tape for instant peel and stick labels too. Can't wait to pass that one along.

Hugs and Happy New year and thanks for another great hop!
