Stampin' Llamas Occasionally Occasions Blog Hop

Welcome! If you lose your way along the hop please return to our home blog

My first card is using the stamp set Heaven Blessed on pg 20 of the Occasions Mini I fell in love with the cute little boy and the cute animal images.
Here are the details
·                     The card base is Marina Mist layered with Old Olive and then a layer of DSP, the DSP is Letters to Santa (I think I like the non Christmas sides of these paper better then the Christmas side.
·                     I used the Framelits Dies (pg 6 Occasions Mini) Labels Collection to cut Watercolor Paper and Old Olive CS.
·                     I stamped the image with Stazon onto the Watercolor paper and the colored it with Ink and an Aqua Painter.
·                     My Easter Greeting is on the inside of the card.
The second card uses Baby Prints found on pg 38 of the Occasions Mini

·                     The card base is Whisper White and I used the Edgelits (pg 7)  for the bottom of the card and the Framelits for the image
·                     A strip of DSP Cheerful Treat was used behind the scallops on the bottom
·                     The tiny feet were inked with Wisteria Wonder ink and stamped on Whisper White CS the edges of the Framelit cut is sponged with Lucky Limeade.   Baby from Tiny Tags was stamped with Lucky Limeade and punched out with the Jewelry Tag punch, a Lucky Limeade and Wistera Wonder tag was also punched they were pinned through the CS with a pin from Vintage Trinkets.
·                     it was then layered onto a Framelit cut from DSP Paper Stacks 2011-2013 In color.
Third up was hard for me to pick but decided to show a card from the Upcoming Sale-a-bration Catalog I used a set the is free with a $50 order, it is found on pg 15 of that catalog

·                     The card base is Naturals White Sponged with Soft Suede the DSP is another Sale-a-bration Freebie found on pg 7 called Everyday Enchantment I used pieces from two different sheets, the edges are also sponged.
·                     The stamp set is called Elementary Elegance, I stamped the frame with Versamark and Embossed with Gold Embossing Powder in the middle I stamped Happy Birthday from the set using Poppy Parade. I hand cut it out and popped it up on the card with Dimensionals.
I hope that you were inspired by the cards we are showing remember the Mini runs until April 30th but Sale-a-bration is only Jan 24th- Mar 31st. Next stop on the hop is Linda -
You are going to love her Packed for Birthday

Until next time Happy Stampin'


  1. Kath, I LOVE your Heaven Blessed card - I completely agree with you about the designer series paper, and it's totally perfect here!

  2. Lovely stamping and fantastic watercoloring (as usual), Kath. Maybe I do need to buy those Easter kids. ;-)

  3. I love your water coloring, Kath. You always do such a fine job of it. I like the way you used Baby Prints.

  4. WOW! All I can say is, "Ditto on the watercoloring." You're amazing. These are all just beautiful.

  5. Kath I LOVE your coloring too. That little guy is So adorable, reminds me of my grandson (3)and I also want to get this set (soon). The footprints are precious and love those tiny tags! The third is gorgeous and love how you embossed and fussy cut the focal, THEN put it against that lattice. Beautiful. Hugs.

  6. I love the third card and the embossing on the frame, I'll use that soon. Thanks for the inspiration, and Buffy is correct that you are awesome at coloring!

  7. That frame looks gorgeous in gold. That hadn't crossed my mind, and I was wondering why I got the set. Now I know, thanks.

  8. Love the little boy card. Great job with the water coloring.

  9. You did a nice job picking out the colors for the little boy. I think he's especially adorable.
