Button Buddies stamp set

My family and I have been away on vacation for the last couple of weeks. We drove to Salt Lake City to attend the Stampin Up! annual convention and then spent time with family on the drive home.

While it was great to be away, I was just a little impatient knowing that my first order from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue was waiting for me at home. 


But today is the day! Although I have lots of e-mails and other thing to catch up on, I also plan to find time to stamp and use my new products. This card featuring the Button Buddies stamp set (Wood 122735, Clear 122737) is my very first creation and I managed to use lots of the new products!

I stamped the flower from the Button Buddies stamp set onto Whisper White card stock with Whisper White Craft ink and then heat embossed with the new Tempting Turquoise embossing powder (122950). Don’t you love having all of the new coloured powders?

I punched the image with the 2-1/2″ circle punch (120906) and then layered onto a Tempting Turquoise 2-3/4″ circle of card stock cut with the Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat. The Basic Black card stock border was made with the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die for the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

A couple of other new products were used as well – the Stripes Embossing Folder (123128), Basic Black 1/2″ Scallop Dots Ribbon (124145) and the Perfectly Penned stamp set (Wood 122890, Clear 122892).

Please stop by my blog often this week for lots of new product samples and some other announcements! Better yet, subscribe by reader or e-mail in the column to the right so you don’t miss a thing!
