Occasions Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Occasions mini Blog hop! We are featuring the new stamp sets and accessories from the upcoming Occasions Mini. There are 16 stops along the way. You may have come from Adriana's blog where she featured the stamp set You're My Type or you may be starting here, that's OK! The hop is linked in a circle so you can start anywhere along the way! If you get lost, you can always go HERE to get back on track!

The stamp set that I'm highlighting today is called Mouthwatering. It has 4 delicious treat images that you can use. I have used each image. The first one is a card that I used in a swap with other demos, so some of you may have seen this one already! If you have seen it, you might want to smell it too! I used the Melon embossing powder on the Popsicle! Yum, it smells so good!

 The next card uses the great cherries in this set! I also used the new DSP called Sweet Shop. I'm loving this paper! The colors are faboo and the designs are so cute. I'm not into the large print DSP's and this one is much smaller and for me, easier to use. It helps that it's all bright colors and I love bright colors!

The third card that I created uses the watermelon image. I made the gingham background with the stripes embossing folder. Love how this turned out! Come back on Monday and I'll explain how I made the gingham.

My last project is something that I've wanted to create for a long time but just never took the time to get it done. This was just the push I needed to try it out. The results are an ice cream cone necklace! I'll explain the how to's for this on Monday too! It's not hard though and my girls are now fighting over this! They all want one!

I hope that I have given you some ideas for this great new stamp set! It has been lots of fun to play with and I think I still have a few more ideas to create! Stay tuned to see more!

The next blog on the list is Debra's Heartfelt Inkspiration, where she used the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits die to create her projects. She really has some out of the box ideas with these cute little hearts!

Happy Stampin'!
