Sparkly Fun Friday -- Happy Day!

Sparkly Fun Fridays features a sparkly or glittery project using shimmer paints, embossing powders, glitters, rhinestones... anything shiny to welcome the weekend in a fun way!!!

Hi everyone,

Today is a happy day indeed! We've got our new design up on our blog and we really like it. To celebrate our new image, I decided to taylor my card around our new design. 

I really like the color combo we chose; these colors are favorites of Gen and I. To mimick the font from our banner, I used a retired alpha stamp set and embossed the letters with White Detail EP. Then I cut around the letters. 

I loooooooove these new Glitter Brads from the Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalogue. I simply opened the prongs on the back of each brad and slipped them through the button holes. Easy as pie!

(all from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted)

Stamp Set: Jumbo Outline Alphabet
Inks: VersaMark
Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Brights Patterns DSP Stack
Punches: Two-Step Bird Extra-Large and Corner Rounder
Other:  Detail White Embossing Powder, Uni-Ball White Gel Pen, Brights Glimmer Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, SNAIL Adhesive, 2-Way Glue Pen

Have nice stampin' day !!

Belle carte qui est parfaitement assortie à votre blog, la question qui me vient est: which came first? The blog design or the card?!! Beau travail encore une fois

Card a la Carte said...

hehe, Marie-Claude, that's quite funny. But I can assure you that the card was done after the blog overhaul.
Merci pour les beaux compliments!
