Busy Week

Well it was quite a busy week. We had a new order of dies come in earlier in the week and I did not have a chance to blog them and now they are pretty much all sold out! However never fear, I will be at the warehouse next week picking up more new product which will arrive later next week.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by this week and commented on the new store look. I am very happy with it! Thank you to Allison and Lori who I managed to trick into helping me on a Saturday night! If you have not seen the new store layout stop by it looks amazing! :)
Despite the busy week I did manage to get a few cards made up. I am busily playing with my embossing powders and heat gun in preparation for my free Heat Embossing demo next Saturday it is a drop in event running between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm. I will also be doing a quick ink review for those who have trouble keeping the different types of ink straight in their heads (took me forever to remember it too!). Might be a good idea to bring a pen and paper to the demo since as usual LOTS of techniques will be covered!
This card was done using two Hero Arts stamps (Large Flower background and sentiment (not sure of the set off the top of my head)). I embossed on white cardstock with Ranger's Seafoam white embossing powder then I used my Colorbox stylus handle and foam tips and sponged on Adirondack Red Pepper and Clover inks plus Distress ink Broken China to make the white embossing powder really pop. I stamed the sentiment using Verafine Deep Lagoon ink then cut the sentiment out with a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die. I finished off the card with some May Arts twine and a bit of ribbon in my stash (love using up those funny bits of ribbon in the botton my my ribbon bin!).
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
