Freshly Made New Product Sneak Peek!

Hello, Stampin' Friends! If you follow me I've been teasing that I'm working with new products from the Spring catalog this weekend...and your first sneak peek is finally here! I used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the Avonlea papers/colors for my card. Do you love those hexagons? They are from a new set that will be available starting in February called Honeycomb...as soon as I saw it, I knew it must be mine! I inked each hexagon in shades of Twilight, Slate, Whisper, and Sweet Leaf, then rolled them in Chocolate ink before stamping them down. I love being able to see right through my stamps for placement!  

I cut about an inch off the top edge of my Avonlea Paper (including the zip strip), flipped that around and used it to create the stripes across my card, with some help from Silver Shimmer Tape. I added a couple of buttons from the Blue Assortment, filled with Silver Glitter Glitz and topped with a medium sparkle.
That sentiment is a little sneak peek of the February SOTM too...with some selective inking and paper piecing. I inked just the top half of the sentiment for the front of the card. Using a post-it as a mask, I added the second half of the sentiment to the inside of the card, along with a few more hexagons for good measure. If you requested a free Jamberry sample from my Facebook page, it'll be coming to you this week - in one of these cards!

This week I'm giving away a packet of this lovely Avonlea paper, which was my Favorite packet from the Fall catalog (which ends January 31st). Enter to win below - good luck!!

I love the Avonlee paper but I don't have any left. I hate to spend my money when the new idea book is coming out and there will be so many cool things to buy then. I really like the colors and the glitz and glamour on this card. This is definitely fun!!!!
