Poppin Thanks

I've been busy today creating projects and e-mails for upcoming events....and worked in a challenge as well using the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary.

I used a couple of the new products which are in the upcoming Occasions Mini:  The Mixed Bunch stamp set - which I used the Poppin' Pastels technique on to create the two different colours on the one image.  I also used one of the new Edgelits Dies.  Next time I'll have to use the same die and then emboss it with the Impressions Folder.  

So many new things to play with - glad I'm on the holdiay break!

I'm also sharing a picture of the little purses I created for three young ladies this Christmas season - I put gift cards into them.  I got the tutorial for the patterns over at Inking Idaho.  There are three different patterns in the tutorial - I'll be experimenting with the others soon.

Hope you are having a wonderful day - Thanks for taking time out to visit.  Joan

Super cute how you stamped the flower for a background and then used one with the new punch. I like how you used the new Edgelits also! Thanks for playing with us this week at Create with Connie & Mary!
