I love the new Approaching Perfection stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration! I’ve used it on a number of cards already, and I’m sure it will be one of my most used stamp sets for a while! I waited for this week’s FMS469 so I could create another birthday card with this stamp set! Another Sale-a-Bration item I’m playing with is the Oh So Ombre DSP with its bright colors. You know I love my brights and the DSP make this card! I used a Basic White card base, Granny Apple Green bottom frame layer and the DSP on top.
I used only 1 line of one of the greetings, did you ever think to do that? I originally stamped it directly on the DSP….oops…smeared. Hmph! Another piece of DSP, didn’t get it fully stamped – darn. So I was back to my original piece and decided to add a Basic White tag with the greeting (to cover up my boo-boo). Dang, only partially stamped..my stamping efforts weren’t going too well. Another try, finally got a good stamp on the tag! I attached it with dimensionals over my original stamped greeting. Then the dilemma of what to add for the graphic. I tried circles, abstract circle, flowers….ah…the birthday candles! I used my Stampin’ Up! markers to color the candles, die cut it with the Stitched So Sweetly die and DONE! WHEW that didn’t go as I planned, but I love the finished card! Here’s inside of my card with another of the Approaching Perfection stamps, colored with my Stampin’ Up! markers. Here’s what I used for my card.
Thanks for stopping by today. Don’t forget Sale-a-bration where you’ll find both the Oh So Ombre DSP and the Approaching stamp set.
Hugs to all of you, and happy stamping!
