Mixed Bunch in Many Colors

One of the  stamp sets I really wanted to order from the Occasions mini was Mixed Bunch.   Love bold flower images and with a coordinating punch what could be better?  I had to wait since this set was the one we were going to receive at the Leadership Meeting.   I am still finishing up the make and takes from Leadership featuring this set and i will show them to you as the week continues and I complete them.    I had to stamp some samples of my own that have been rolling around in my brain since I first saw the set.   Here's the first design card I stamped.

Here it is in another color combination.

I liked it so much that I made it another color combination but that one is for a swap I am in so I will not show that one yet.  This is a super easy card and I think it lends itself to lots of occaisions.  

Here are the different color combinations: Concord Crush and Black, Peach Parfait and Not Quite Navy, and Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade.  The polka dot DSP is from the Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks.  The brads are either Glimmer Brads or the Everyday Enchantment brad and ribbon combination from Sale-A-Bration.  If you have any questions about the supplies drop me an E and i will get it answered.  hope you are enjoying the Two-A-Days! 



Flowers and Butterflies

There's something about know my stamping friend Mary Ammar.  She made this card for the swap and I love it.

She used that lovely Everday Enchantment DSP and a brad from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad pack.  Check out the edge of the paper and the embossing too.  Don't ya just love that kind of coordination?  She used both the Edgelits die and the TIEF  Adorning Accents.  Very pretty card, Mary.

Here's a fun card from my friend Pam Stern.  Pam always has a fun take on things.  

Mixed Bunch
I love the way she made these butterflies with the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the Blossom punch.  If you look on page 16 of the Occasions Mini catalog there is another idea on how to make a butterfly using this set and punch.   Can I tell you that I really love the 3 different sizes of rhinestones she used for the butterfly's body.  I have totally adopted (aka CASED) this idea and have been using it on all my butterflies.  

Well, the party is almost over and I will be heading home.  I know my head will be swimming with ideas!
