Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek: Bloomin' Heart Thinlits

Try Stampin' on Tuesday (TSOT) Challenge # 248 and a Sneak Peek!

It is time for another Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge!  Every week there is a new challenge on the Try Stampin' on Tuesday blog but the members of the design team alternate weeks and this is my week to play along!   Here's TSOT Sketch # 248.

TSOT #248

Crystal designed this sketch and I love it!  So many possibilities!  I know I will be using this sketch again soon.  

Flowering Fields TSOT #248

I couldn't resist using some new items from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  Let me just say that these 2 catalogs are totally yummy!  I shared another sneak peek here and more will be coming.

This stamp set is called Flowering Fields and is a Sale-A-Bration choice.  If you are unfamiliar with Sale-A-Bration it is a Stampn' Up! promotion January 5th -March 31 2016.  You get to choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration item for every $50 (US) you spend(before shipping and tax).   It is the best time to be a hostess, customer or SU Demonstrator!

See that sweet little bow?  That little cutie is on a paper clip and part of the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit.  When I first saw this set, Flowering Fields I was pretty neutral on it, I thought it was cute but didn't have to have it.  After playing with it, I am sold!  I love simple and clean designs and this stamp set is perfect for that kind of projects.  Coloring is quick and easy and the images are strong enough to stand on their own.  You will be seeing a lot more of this set in the coming months.

Are you wondering what patterned paper I used?  This is the front and back of one of the designs from the Love Blossoms DSP stack.  This is a 40 sheet 6" x 6" paper stack that has 4 each of 12 double sided designs.   It was hard for me to choose which design to use and then really hard to cut it!  I am trying to get over my "it's so pretty I don't want to cut it" mentality.  Am I the only one who suffers from this kind of thinking?  I also stamped another image inside of the card, which you can see peeking out in the picture above.  

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek and will join in the TSOT challenge #248!
