Having fun with new toys!

Busy, busy in the Stamping Studio today!!! I think I'm vainly trying to use all my current new stuff, so I won't feel (as) guilty about placing a HUGE order today for even more new stuff. I swear, this stuff is addictive!!! And I need it alllll, lol!!!!

Stampin Up came out with this hexagon embossing folder in the Spring Mini catalog, but didn't have a punch to go with it!! What the heck??? But I ordered one from a different company and now I actually have several sizes to play with, not just the one that fits this folder. Score!!

I love how this has a "quilt" look to it!
Recipe:
Stamps: Friendly Phrases
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP
Ink: Marina Mist
Accessories: Hexagon embossing folder, hexagon dies by MFT, Floral Fusion sizzlet die, large rhinestone

This die cuts out up to 8 hexagons at a time (big time saver!!), plus it also cuts out the frame too! I didn't need the frames for this card, but I saved 'em for something fun later! This is the middle sized hexagon, and I have one larger and one smaller in this set. I have another set too, that nests together. Love, love, love it!!

That's really sweet with the embossed background and the variety of printed octagon papers. And you will have frames and pieces for other cards, too. Nice! You really do have some fun new toys. :)
