Madison avenue glamour …

I love the gorgeous glimmer paper from Stampin’ Up! and how it looked on the card I made a few weeks back here,

so I used it to make a birthday card for my niece, Becky …

Becky's birthday

I stamped a patterned background with versamark ink and clear embossing powder using the madison avenue sale-a-bration stamp set, together with my new love – the distressed dots background stamp from Stampin’ Up!

Becky's card

I love that glitzy glam paper against the black card – so sparkly!


Here’s what I used to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up! :

cardstock: basic black, whisper white, silver glimmer paper; stamp sets: memorable moments, madison avenue, distressed dots; inks: basic black, versamark; accessories: clear embossing powder, heat gun, typeset alphabet dies, big shot machine, adhesive rhinestones, stamp-a-majig.

Sale-a-brate good times, come on!

It’s a sale-a-bration!

(OK, so now that song will be going around my head for the rest of the day!)

I made this gift set using some of the fabulous stamp sets available for FREE during Stampin’ Up’s sale-a-bration

– madison avenue, vintage verses and patterned occasions (my favourite)…

Saleabration heart trio

The colour inspiration came from the candlelight Christmas specialty designer series paper – a great way to use up any Christmas papers you may still have around…

Hints of sparkle were added with small hearts punched from champagne glimmer paper, and tiny bows of early espresso scalloped tulle ribbon for texture.

I bought some chocolate hearts from my local suparmarket and adhered to the card with mini glue dots …

heart insert

These projects are good for Valentines, anniversaries, birthdays or just because …

and they fitted in perfectly with my cake from cake class this week…

chocolate mocha heart cake

… a coffee cake covered with chocolate icing, embossed with roses.
