Sale-A-Bration is the perfect time to join my team, and add FREE stamp sets to your collection. I made this birthday card in a jiffy, using the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits Dies, both from Sale-A-Bration.
Watch this video for information on Sale-A-Bration, and great samples using these sets.
Are you ready for the details on my birthday card? First, I used the die to cut the word “celebrate” two times from Thick Whisper White cardstock; one for coloring, and one to layer for thickness.
The Stampin’ Blends made it fun to color “celebrate” in an ombre fashion. I painted Light Bermuda Bay across the bottom, followed by Dark Pool Party, and Light Pool Party across the top. These alcohol pens make it easy to blend the colors. Imagine what you could do with the entire combo pack of 27 markers! That’s the one I bought, but they are available individually also.
Are you wondering where I found the ray coming out of “celebrate?” This stamp is in the Amazing You stamp set, and just what I needed for shooting off some fireworks.
I added color with the fabulous Frutti-tutti Adhesive-backed Sequins. Yes, you read correctly, they are adhesive-backed, in five colors, page 29 in the Occasions Catalog. You just scoop and plop these babies, no muss, no fuss. I had to force myself to stop with nine, because I was having so much fun!
This card could be celebrating anything, but this is a birthday card. The Birthday Wit stamp set (Occasions Catalog, page 9) has a “Happy Birthday” I thought would go with the fireworks, stamped in the same Basic Black ink.
This card base is Thick Whisper White, so I stamped right on it. When I use colored cardstock as the card base, I layer it with regular Whisper White for the inside sentiment.
Since I brought Birthday Wit into the picture, here is another card I recently made using another stamp from the set.
