Inspired By the Occasions Catalog!


Welcome Back for a peek at Today’s Card!

I hold a Stamp Class the First Wednesday of each month…we gather together and make a Card that everyone can take home and replicate, if they wish!

I was inspired by a Card I saw in the Occasions Catalog!

Occasions Catalog


Here is the Card…on page 30 of the Catalog!

The actual Stamp Set I bought!

Here is the Stamp Set with the Catalog

The Stamp Set is on the page, introducing the Stampin’ Blends!

We used the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight and the Light and Dark Old Olive!

For the Greeting we used Memento’s Tuxedo Black

and also used to pre stamp image for coloring!


Here is the finished Card!

First Wednesday March Card Class

Stinkin’ Cute, huh? Love it!

The Ladies LOVED it!

(2 of them changed the greeting to use the Card for a different Occasion!)

We all also, moved the banner lower on the Cards we made!


The inside of the Card…we used the ‘cut off strip’ from the front panel

of DSP for the bottom of the inside!
