More cards from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog 2014

As promised here are some more cards using some fun new items from the new Occasions Catalog - they used to call this the Mini catalog, well there is nothing mini about this catalog!   It is stocked full of fun new products and of course tons of ideas to make with these new products.  My list is long, but with Sale a Bration (SAB) starting next week (the 28th), for each $50 in merchandise purchased, I get to pick a FREE item from the SAB catalog.  If you don't have a copy of either of these catalogs, contact me to get yours!

This first group uses a new Bundle from the Occasions catalog, Just Sayin' stamp set and  the Word Bubbles framelits, purchase them together and save 15%!
Simple! some DSP, one word greeting and a little bling!  The DSP is from the Kaleidoscope DSP from the Occasions catalog, and the greeting and coordinating framelit, some red glimmer paper punch out with the mini heart punch and some black 1/8" taffeta ribbon and of course, dimensionals.

 Same stamp set,  framelits, DSP and ribbon just a different color.  Some candy dots make this card suitable for anyone! man of woman, young or old.
 This card uses use the same stamp set and framelits and the small piece of DSP is from the Fresh Prints DSP stack also in the Occasions catalog.   Add some texture (these embossed lines are from the Holiday catalog) and not available, at least not for now.   Who knows, it might show up later....finish it up with some bakers twine and a candy dot.
  This DSP is from the SAB catalog, Sweet Sorbet, and I just love these papers in this DSP.   This pattern is not so flowery,  making it a great use for any project.  Added is a Petite Petal  punched out with a rhinestone on top.
This next group of cards uses the stamp set, Happy Watercolor from the Occasions catalog.   One of my favorite sets from this catalog.   
You can barely see the stamped image on the pebbled embossed (FREE in the SAB catalog)   front panel, it is a "shadow" stamp from the set, inked up and stamped off first before stamping on the panel (before the embossing).  I used the Happy from the set, but only inked up the Happy and then chose a smaller Birthday from a Hostess set from the regular catalog, a button and some bakers twine finish the tag that was made with the tag topper punch.
 Another tag punched card, so simple the this punch.   The images are from the same set, except for the greeting, from the set in the regular catalog, Too Kind.   Notice the gold washi tape?   New in the Occasions catalog.
 This image is colored in using a blender pen and the Calypso Coral marker and I rounded the corners from that image with the envelope punch board....
 The background stamped in 3 different colors and then the flower image stamped over it with Black Staz on ink.  
Hope you like these cards as much as I did, Most of them were fairly simple to make, some requiring no coloring, fussy cutting, just quick cards when you need them.

If you have questions on how to make any of these cards, leave a comment and for each comment from someone who is local, can come and choose from my BIG BAG full of retired goodies to choose from.   Those that are not local, I will draw a name and send the winner a free S Up gift from me.
