We just love the stamp sets from this year's Sale-A-Bration and wanted to share some sample cards with you.
This card is using the stamp set called Madison Avenue and Bring on the Cake for the Happy Birthday. Madison Avenue is one of the stamp sets that you can get for FREE for buying $50 worth of Stampin'Up Products. So this is kinda fun.
This card is made on a base of Lucky Limeade Card Stock. We used Lucky Limeade, Star Fruit and Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink Pads. The Ribbon is the Summer Starfruit Stitched Ribbon. We also used a couple of punches. For the inside of the flower, we used the Itty Bitty Punch Pack for the inside circle of the flowers and we used the 1/2" Circle Punch as the green mat for the outside part of the flower.
We used Whisper White Card Stock Step Down and the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper that is also available for FREE with a $50 order.
To create the flowers at the top of the card, you hold the DSP paper in place as a guide to show you where to stamp the flowers at the top of the page. One way is to stamp the green leaves first, then add the yellow flower or you can stamp the yellow flower first then add the green leaves. (Thanks Trish for the great idea!). Either way will work fine. Notice how one of the yellow flowers is stamped lower than the others.
Then you add on the DSP to the bottom. We used the Ribbon to cover the seam. This ribbon was attached using the "faux bow" method. (Hint – use 2 pieces of ribbon. First attached the one across the page, anchoring it only on the back of the Whisper White Card Stock. Then take a smaller piece and tie it around the first ribbon. Easy to do!
The Happy Birthday is stamped on Whisper White Card Stock with a Lucky Limeade Step Up Border. Did you notice the extra punch in the corner? We also added an additional flower to the inside of the card as quick update to the card.
I hope you enjoy this. We were really excited to use some FREE stamps.
We are looking forward to our Spring Fling Event – March 1st, 2nd & 3rd in Madison. We hope to see you there!
