Update and New Ocassions Mini Catalog!

Okay, so remember a few months ago, how I posted "I'm BACK?" yeah, well, I was for a tiny while and then my computer decided to just stop working.  So, now I cam back for good! My darling husband bought me a new laptop for Christmas and I am so excited to be back blogging!
So, I joined a SU! Trip Achievers Swap in December and we were to use things from the Oassions Mini or Salebration Mini catalog for all of our swaps.  I did two groups so that I could get double the cards back for some much needed inspiration.  So, today, I'm sharing my first post of one of my swaps.

I used the Play Pals stamp set that is available as a stamp set or you can buy it as a bundle with a coordinating die set called Pyramid Pals. ( I will post the bundle at the end of my post)
I layered some Melon Mambo DSP from the Paper Stack onto Smokey Slate cardstock which is the base of my card.
Then I randomly stamped some Blushing Bride flowers from the Project Life stamp set Memories in the Making. 

 For this precious elephants face, I stamped out the outline stamp in Momento Black ink and then the solid color is Basic Gray.  I used the dies provided in the Bundle to cut out the ears, eyes and trunk, the bow is cut from the bow die from Blushing Bride Glimmer paper(also new in the mini).  I added a pearl in the middle of the bow.
I layered a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and added it to the bottom of the card.  I stamped out the I heart You, also from the PL stamp set, in Momento Black.  I punched out the heart from the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper.  This stamp set and dies are going to be so much fun to make all kinds of cards and projects.  Stay tuned for tomorrow's post of my second swap.
Thanks for stopping by!
