I can’t believe we are nearly 1/2 way through Sale-A-bration! I am really going to miss these stamp sets when they are gone. Don’t forget that any one of these sets could be yours for free when place an $100 order during the remainder of sale-A-bration.
This card is one that I have wanted to make ever since I got the Birthday Whimsy set. I had it all planned out in my head and I was happy with the way it turned out in real life. I love the balloon stamp in this set and I thought a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter would be a perfect finishing touch. To get this effect you need to ink your stamp in Versa Mark then go straight into a Classic ink pad of your choice. I chose Lovely Lilac, Rose Red and Apricot Appeal to match the card stock and the colours of the ribbon. Stamp the images on some Whisper White card stock and then sprinkle over some Heat and Stick powder. Heat the powder with your Heat Tool so that it melts and, before it dries, sprinkle your glitter over the top. A quick blast with the heat tool will set the glitter in place. I’ve used Sweet Shop Ribbon Originals and Stampin’ Up’s Silver cord for the embellishments. I threaded the cord through a Lavender Lace eyelet and fastened it at the back of the Certainly Celery card with Snail adhesive. If you and your friends would like to learn more about how to apply bling to your projects, then contact me now to book a time for your workshop! I used my new Word Window punch for the greeting…..you can make your windows as long as you want by sliding the punch along a bit further. With this, though, I used the bit that you punch out of the window and slid the strip back into the punch, leaving one end free to get the extra length (I might need to show you this in a photo!)
I haven’t forgotten to show you how to make the little brackets on the 6×6 page a couple of posts ago……..stay tuned for a step by step photo tutorial! My “camera assistant” has gone to bed and I now only have one pair of hands!!
