Stampin' Up 2016 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek - Honeycomb Happiness

Are we all ready to bring in the New Year?  The grocery stores are packed and the lines are so long with people picking up their last minute items for their New Year's parties!  We stayed away and just went to pick up our scripts at the pharmacy.  We even took the back roads in to town to avoid the traffic.

Stampin' Up's Sale-A-Bration starts January 4th.  For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get one FREE product from the SAB brochure.  So, today I thought I'd show another card using SU's SAB Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set.  Let's take a look:

I just LOVE that little chick!  He makes me smile BIG!!!  The little Chick and the Hang In There sentiment on the balloon are from the new SU SAB Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set.

My card base is SU Melon Mambo Card Stock and my front panel is the new SU Shine On Designer Series Paper.  I LOVE the pressed silver foil on this paper.  I used a strip of Bontanical Gardens DSP for the grass at the bottom of my card.

My balloons were punched from SU Mint Macaron Card Stock using the new Balloon Bouquet Punch, stamped with the little stars from the new SU Balloon Celebrations Stamp Set and sponged with SU Mint Macaron Ink.

I popped the balloons up with Stampin' Dimensionals and tied them under the little Chick's wing using the new Two-Tone Baker's Twine in Mint Macaron and Basic Black.  I also popped up the little Chick and the Grass.

The flowers are from the new SU Bear Hugs Stamp Set.  I used the Marker to Stamp Technique and used SU Mossy Meadow, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Markers to color my stamp.  I then 'huffed' on my stamp to rejuvenate the ink and stamped it on SU Whisper White Card Stock.

Pictured above is the inside of my card.  One of my New Year's Resolutions is to finish the inside of all my cards (except the sentiment) as I make them.  Normally, not finishing the inside of my cards happens when my time is limited and then when I need the card, I'm scrambling to find a matching DSP to finish off the inside.  I'll get better now that the holidays are over!  =)

I used another piece of the Botanical Gardens DSP on the inside of my card and punched two of the corners with the SU Curvy Corner Trio Punch.

I stamped the sentiment from SU's new Suite Sayings Stamp Set in Black Archival Ink on SU Whisper White Card Stock.

I punched two more balloons, well, one and three quarters, from SU Mint Macaron Card Stock with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and adhered them to the inside of my card. 

I'm really happy with the way this card turned out!!!
