Something Fun!!

So, today I set out to play with the new Stampin' Up! exclusive Matchbox Die. I had pre-ordered it a couple of weeks ago but between club projects, yard work, and a weekend trip I just hadn't had time to play! I have a few birthdays coming up and decided I wanted to do a little something for them. Who doesn't like getting chocolate on their birthday?? So, I made the box, filled it with some Hershey's nuggets and made a matching card. What I love is that it was so easy to do!! I made a collage of the box closed, open, with the card, and the card alone. All products except chocolates (and why doesn't SU sell chocolate?) from Stampin' Up!
Stamp sets: Just Beachy, Birthday Wish
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black, Real Red Marker, Cameo Coral Marker, Summer Sun marker, Tempting Turqouise marker
Paper: Tempting Turqouise, Summer Sun, Whisper White, Pink Flamingo DSP
Accessories: Red Grosgrain, Red Gingham, SU exclusive Matchbox die, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Bold Brights brads, glue dots, dimensionals

I have to admit the Pink Flamingo DSP is WAY wilder than anything I'd normally use but a couple of my friends having birthdays soon LOVE these bright colors so I think they will enjoy the things I make for them with this paper.

Matchbox Exclusive die, Just Beachy stamp set, and Scallop Oval punch will be available for order beginning April 1st!!
