A few of my favorite Occasions Mini creations- Happy New Year!

Happy New Years to all of you! As a little gift, I have loaded a few of my favorite cards i've seen made with the new Occasions Mini product. I cannot take credit for these, i've copied them from the lovely ladies at Splitcoast stampers and I only hope I get a little relaxation this weekend to create some new cards with all my new Occasions Mini goodies! Enjoy and have a safe and Happy New Year!

Christmas Punches Class- Card #4

Last one,
Card #4 from 12/5 Punches class:

7- Garden Green 1"circle punches
7- real red 3/4" circle punches
10" of real red grosgrein ribbon. Attached with a glue dot

Merry Moments Designer Series Paper.

Christmas Punches Class- Card #3

Card #3 from 12/5 Punches class:

Remember this Reindeer? Probably my favorite swamp I brought home from convention, although I couldn't find oval googly eyes anywhere.

Here's the breakdown:
BODY: 1 wide oval punch
HEAD: 1 large oval punch
NOSE: 1- 1/2 circle punch in real red
COLLAR: take thick side of Chocolate CHip marker and make 2 large strokes. Cover with green and red 1/4 circle punches
EYES: 2- 1/4 circle punches
HAIR: from the Boho Blossoms punch
ANTLERS: Snowflake punch cut in 3rd
EARS AND TAIL: corners from the 5 petal punch
LEGS: hand cut from cardstock- roughly 1/8 of an inch

Christmas Punches Class- Card #2

Card #2 from 12/5 Punches class:
Back is bashful blue. I cut the white, and black pieces by hand. The embossed flower on his hat is a little different in this picture than the one from class since this was partially a swap I got at convention and I didn't have that embosslit. So, use the flower I gave you and the 1/2 circle punch to go on top of it.

Here's the breakdown for the other parts in case you want to make more:
EYES: 2- 1 3/8 circle punches
EYE LIDS: 1- 1 3/8 circle punch cut in half. I think took dazzling diamonds glitter to the eyes with a glue pen.
BLACK EYES: 2- 1" circles for inner eyes
NOSE: half of 1- 1 3/8 circle punch in pumpkin pie
5- 1/2 inch circle punches for smile

I also used the white gel pen to do his hat outline, and on the eyes. I then stamped in Whisper White ink for the words.

Christmas Punches Class- Card #1

Card #1 from 12/5 Punches class:
Marshmellow Man (isn't he cute? I can't take credit for this one, I cased him from Stampin Inspirations)

FIRE: 2 1/2- 5 petal punch in orange (then sponge outside in real red ink for flames)

LOGS: 2 1/2- Chocolate Chip word window punches

TOP and BOTTOM: 2 word window punches in sahara sand. 1 in Chocolate Chip for the layering

MARSHMALLOWS: 1- 1 3/8 square, 1 1 1/4 square punch. Then take your corner rounder and round the corners of each. I then took Creamy Caramel ink and brushed the edges

FACE: use a black marker to color face in
NOSE: corner of a small star punch- in pumpkin pie paper
CUP: from a word window punch cut in a little less than half. For handle, take the slit punch and punch into your red cardstock, then come over it with the word window punch

On Bashful blue Cardstock. "Let it Snow" is from the Punch Pals Stamp set.

I also just used white paper on my bottom and tore it to look like snow then went over it with Stickles glitter to make it shine.
