Hi Stamping Friends!
There is less than one week left to register for my HUGE Spring Catalog Kick-Off & Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek Party happening on Sunday, January 6, at 1pm! We're making 20 unique cards in one afternoon using new stamps, tools and embellishments from the Spring Catalog! You'll also see sneak peeks from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Flyer, which doesn't come out until January 22.
Today's two cool cards are one of the card designs we'll be creating at my Spring Catalog Kick-Off Party! They feature two new products from the Spring Catalog, which begins on January 3, 2013.
Sneak Peek #1—Check out the texture embossed background featuring the new Honeycomb Texture Impressions Folder! I'm quickly falling in love with this trendy, geometric design!
I filled in some of the hexagon shapes with Twitterpated Designer Series Paper for a fun and colorful background. It's easy to cut out the shapes…just emboss several strips of Designer Series Paper with the Honeycomb Folder, then cut along the score lines. This is a great way to use up coordinating scraps!
Sneak Peek #2—I love the quote, don't you?! I stamped it in Riding Hood Red on Whisper White. It's from a brand-new stamp set called Feel Goods, which includes five different inspiring quotes that are perfect for uplifting cards and scrapbook pages.
I die-cut the image with the Window Frames Framelits (on the carry-over list thru Spring!), then added a larger Window Frame Framelit Layer that's been pierced using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack template (also staying as a carry-over) as a guide.

I'm really liking the way the Window Frame complements that hexagon shapes of the background. On this version, I filled the shapes on only one side with the Twitterpated DSP.
And, some of the papers are popped up with Dimensionals for added texture. What a fun background!
