Everyday Enchantment DSP, Blossom Punch and more!


I'm loving all the new products from the fabulous Occasions Mini Catalog as well as the Sale-A-Bration products!  On my card today, I have used several of them to make a pretty quick and easy yet attractive card (I love how it turned out! ) {smile}

I started this card late yesterday evening and it came together so quickly that I was shocked!  Sometimes it takes me what seems like "forever" to make a card, but not this one!  Using some of the fabulous new stamping and cutting tools and products from the Occasions Mini made short work of this card.  I didn't add a sentiment; I'll wait until I use it to send greetings to someone and add the appropriate words.  Do you do that?
Some of the new products I used here are: 
  1. The Adorning Accents Edgelit Die to cut the bottom front edge of the card into this graceful shape (I also cut the Designer Print that is attached to the inside bottom of the card with it for a pretty card inside); 
  2. The Adorning Accent Embossing Folder that mirrors the shape of the Edgelit die, and gives an embossed border right above the cut;
  3. Another Adorning Accent Embossing Folder with rows of tiny hearts beneath the flower;  
  4. The flower itself is cut with a beautiful new six petal Blossom Punch (cuts like but-tah!  love it!); 
  5. A flower-center stamp from the coordinating -to-the- punch new Mixed Bunch stamp set for the center of the flower;  
  6. The brad in the center of the flower is from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack in the Sale-A-Bration brochure and is a free bonus product during Sale-a-Bration, and it also coordinates with the
  7. Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper, pkg. of 12, double-sided, which is used on this card both for the punched blossom as well as the lower portion of the card below the curved cut!  
In this close-up, you can see the design on the flower center as well as the brad.  It's so cool that they all coordinate in color and theme!  You can also see the sweet tiny embossed hearts; I added a light brush of Pool Party ink to them with a Sponge Dauber.

I couldn't decide if I preferred the addition of the ribbon underneath the flower or not, so I may add a picture without it to see what you think.  I do love that Ruffled Ribbon though and the Pool Party color is yummy!!

Thank you for visiting today!  I love to hear from you!  It's cold here so I'm making a pot of soup and will be staying inside stamping for the day!  Have a wonderful weekend!
