For the tin I used images from the set and embossed them right on the tin with silver EP. Be sure to wipe the tin's surface with an Embossing Buddy first to pick up any stray oils so you don't get any flecks of EP where you don't want them.
Also be careful that you don't burn yourself as the tin can get quite hot from the heat gun.
I got the idea for these beautiful cards from the monthly magazine that Stampin' Up! sends all demonstrators. It's full of wonderful ideas.
These cards use the colours Baja Breeze, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake along with the beautiful Elegant Soiree Designer Paper.
Don't you just love this little (well not so little) bird? The ribbon is the yummy Striped Grosgrain – I love it because it's so soft and easy to use. I've attached it with a brad from the Antique Brads. I think I've gone through about 5 boxes of these brads – I used them on everything!
This card uses the soft and elegant seam binding – this time in Crumb Cake. Don't let the name fool you – it's not like any seam binding I've ever used. My customers love this ribbon and are so surprised when they actually use it in person.
The little flower is from the Adornments embellishments and remind me of soap we used to put out for company when I was little.
The final card in the set is a collage and based on a swap card I received at Leadership.
If you'd like to make these cards and tin I'm offering the class again on February 19th at 10:30 am. THe class fee is $25; if you want to include the stamp set you get both for $45 (clear mount version).

Starting tomorrow and running through to the end of Sale-a-bration I will be sharing samples from both the Occasions Mini and Sale-a-bration catalogues. I've challenged my downline (members on my Stampin' Up! team) to post a minimum of 3 days per week until March 31st so I'd better set a good example.
Happy Stamping and come back tomorrow!
