Sneak Peek: A day all about you!

Swap time! I participated in a Sneak Peek Preorder swap. As a demonstrator, I got to place an order for a few items from the upcoming 2013-2014 Idea Book and Catalog that launches June 1. Here's my first card with the new stuff:

Stamps: Really Good Greetings
Paper: Pear Pizazz, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper
Ink: Island Indigo, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Big Shot, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Hexagon Embossing Folder, Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon, 1" Circle Punch, 1" Square Punch, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Itty Bitty Flower Punch, Rhinetones, Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape

When I get new stuff, it's hard to not use everything new at once. I tried to limit myself, but as you can see, there are plenty of details on this card. I used the Apothecary Framelit for the quote, but then wanted to back it with a matte. I cut a rectangle 1/4" bigger than the original and used the 1" Circle Punch to accent the half-circle ends. I used a small circle punch in the middle of the bottom circle to tie my bow through. I added the flower and rhinestone combo at the top for balance.

To make the flags, I used my square punches to make even triangles out of the bottom. To make the striped flag, I used our new Washi tape on white paper and trimmed and punched it. I love the texture and colors!
Here's what I mean:

Happy Stamping!
