Welcome aboard the Occasions Mini Tour Bus!

Official Tour Times are 8am to Midnight Today Only!
(some links may not be ready before this time)

Blog candy at the end of this post so be sure to get in on it.



It is here and I am thrilled that you are along for the ride! Glad to see you have your ticket there is so much in store for you today. You will follow along through 20 different blogs all showcasing a different product from the Occasion Mini catalog. You will have many different chances along the way to win fun prizes and be incredibly inspired by the wonderful samples. Get your cup of coffee (or drink of preference) and settle in to enjoy the ride with me on the Occasions Mini Tour!




If you are coming from Fun Stampin with Margaret's blog thanks for continuing the tour! If you are starting right here with me that is great too you will just follow the links until you end up right back here . This is stop 17 on tour 2 and I will be featuring and giving away the And Many Mower set.




This set is perfect for the manly man in your life. So fun and easy to make masculine cards with. We all have difficulty with masculine cards but this set will make it easy. I promise. You will have a chance to win this set for free too. Read the end of the post for more details.

First I would like to share my samples with you. All of my samples will be using 100% current Stampin Up and will be part of my You're Hired Again Series. The first one is using the adorable Golfer Dude. It is also using my Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #67 from earlier today (late last night really).

Stamps: And Many Mower
Paper: To the Nines Speciality Paper, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow and Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip
Other: Ribbon, photo corner punch, circle scissors plus, stamp a ma jig, markers

The next sample is using the same colors and dp as the previous one but I am using the adorable checklist stamp from the set. This card is so perfect for my hubby. He is not really into sports or hunting so many of the sets just don't work for him--this is perfect though! Hope you can see the dimension on this one. Too cute.


Stamps: And Many Mower
Paper: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Whisper White and To The Nines Speciality dp
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, ribbon,

Next up is the cute little lawn mower. I added the words in the oval by hand and part rub on. I had this idea but there were no sentiments that would work so I made my own. The bottom sentiment is from the Really Retro set. This card is also for this week's Late Night Stamper's Challenge 17. We are to case a card from our wonderful list mom Sherrill Graff's blog. HERE is the card I chose to case. The card was created by Gretchen Barron. I changed the colors and the sentiments treatments. And it is tilted in the other direction. I hope you enjoy my humor on this one. You may have to click on the picture to enlarge it to see the details.





Stamps: And Many Mower, Really Retro, Trendy Trees
Paper: Kiwi Kiss DP, Scrap of DP from the Best Ever Scrappin Kit. Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip
Other: scallop border punch, large oval punch, scallop oval punch, markers, Chit Chat rub ons

And finally another one using my Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #67. This is a simple but fun one.

Stamps: And Many Mower
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, ribbon, corner rounder, circle scissors plus

Now the many mower set was one I was on the fence about when I first looked through the mini. BUT you sold me on it....this isn't the first time I have opened my wallet, pulled out my credit card and purchased a set after looking at your work.

Thanks for participating in the tour...it is so much fun to go visiting the blogs.

Fun idea about the tour bus, MJ. And the Many Mower set is growing on me....as is the grass in my yard. I'd like to make your "miss you" card as a reminder card to my DH when the grass needs mowed! So much cuter than nagging, don't you think?

I haven't seen any lawnmower stamps before and I just love your cards. My Dad has always been anal about his grass and wouldn't let anyone cut it but him. When I had to cut the lawn for the first time when I moved into my own house I had no idea how to start the darn thing. This stamp set would make a wonderful Father's Day card. Thanks for sharing.

Mary Jo,
I love the "seems like forever" card. I am doing a stamp a stack for a group of ladies who husbands will be deployed downrange for a year. We are making several thinking of you cards, and this one seems so appropriate. Being a military spouse myself,I can attest that the grass seems to grow three times as fast when they are gone :)

Connie said...

GREAT job with this set, Mary Jo! It was one I just HAD to have the minute I could order it! Love your ideas.
