One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! live events (i.e. the recent OnStage event in November) are the ideas from the company and other demonstrators for using some of the products that we have. This was one new product sample that Shannon West from the Stampin’ Up! Home Office shared and I totally loved (although I wasn’t convinced about her flat packaging suggestion for this card – she whacked it with a book to make the honeycomb embellishment lay flat! Please accept that some cards just need to be hand delivered and those with these lovely new honeycomb embellishments are included in that category).
You cannot make this card without the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the repeated sentiments (or maybe you can, but I definitely can’t). If you haven’t used this tool before I would be happy to show you how to do that or if you want to know right this minute, check out this video by a fellow SU! demonstrator Sage who made an informative ~3min video that you can check out here.
The new honeycomb embellishments come in 3 different colours – none of which are yellow, but there is a white one that you can spritz with a mixture of re-inker and rubbing alcohol (from the pharmacy, I use about 10 drops in a full spritzer, if you want it darker, just allow the project to dry and re-spritz). The balloon was fussy cut and popped up on Dimensionals.
This card would brighten up anyones day and could be used for any number of occasions (if you were sending it to a male, just change the colour of the balloon). Who would you send it to?
The entire 6 piece stamp set Honeycomb Happiness is here and is available as either clear or wood mount for the entirety of Sale-a-bration.
