Occasions Mini starts today!

The Occasions Mini Catalog starts today. This mini catalog is filled with beautiful spring stamp sets and some gorgeous paper and new accessories. The Occasions Mini Catalog is effective from now until June 30th and although some of the stamp sets may appear in the main catalog, most do not. This may be the only time they are available.

My favorite set from the Occasions Mini Catalog is called Sense of Time and I sneak peeked it last month on a card I shared here. Here is another card with the same stamp set, but only using the second sentiment stamp. I also used some of the beautiful Walk In the Park Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The colors in the Walk In the Park paper are Basic Gray, Cameo Coral, So Saffron and Baja Breeze - mmmm!

For this card I stamped the sentiment from Sense of Time in Basic Gray ink onto a narrow strip of Whisper White card stock. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to be sure it was perfectly straight on this narrow piece. I layered it onto a narrow mat of So Saffron card stock, which I had punched the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch. I love the layout of this card and you've seen it a few times on my blog with different sets and different colors - you'll see it again tomorrow on one of my Regionals swap cards, too. I used two pieces of the Walk In the Park DSP and layered them onto the Basic Gray card base. The ribbon is the So Saffron grosgrain ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration (FREE!) Ribbon Bundle. I wrapped it around another piece of the Walk In The Park DSP and secured it with a Baja Breeze Corduroy Button, a new accessory from the Mini Catalog, also available in Basic Gray. There are three different sized buttons in this Corduroy Button pack, including some with metal holes, these large buttons with brad backs and some smaller ones, also with brad prong backs. The sentiment piece is adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside of this card I layered another piece of the Walk In the Park DSP with a Whisper White card stock liner. Then I stamped the clock gears in Basic Gray ink. I stamped 'a note for you' from the Level I Hostess set called Sweet Little Sentiments.

Stamps: Sense of Time
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Walk in the Park DSP
Ink: Basic Gray
