What a beautiful day it's been here in Auckland - a great way to start our Auckland Anniversary long weekend. I've had the day off and this morning got all my chores done before attending a funeral of a very dear family friend. He was full of enthusiasm, always had a big smile on his face and had a positive attitude even when his health was failing him. This afternoon I've completed my tutorial for the upcoming event over at Stampin Fun and Friends which starts next Friday - 1st February. This session is all about sweets and how to present them - my sweet includes chocolate :) If you'd like to join us click here to sign up.
Well on with my card. Last week I received a brown box at work which had some new goodies for me to play with. One of the ladies at work saw some of the items and challenged me to create her a card with the new products - so here is what I made her.
I am in love with the new embossing folder - Honeycomb - isn't it cool. To create the hexagons I placed some of the new DSP in the embossing folder and ran it backwards and forwards through the Big Shot a couple of times. It doesn't cut the paper but leaves a good imprint so that you can then just cut them out. The butterflies are from the SAB set Bloomin Marvelous and punched out with a new butterfly punch. I have a thing for embossing folders and punches!
Stamp - Bloomin Marvelous
Card Stock - Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink - Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point
DSP - Sunshine and Sprinkles
Other - Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Rhinestones
Well not many more sleeps until the new Seasonal mini goes live. It's a great time to hold a workshop/party with all this new product to purchase AND for ever $120 you spend you get FREE product from the SAB catalogue. So if you would like to have a party contact me now to make a booking.
If you live in the wider Auckland region - Happy Anniversary Weekend.
