Sew special ....

... Good evening - I'm very late posting today, but I've had a good excuse - I've been sorting out my craft room.  I got my new Stampin' Up! ink pads - they are just fantastic, so juicy!!  I treated myself to the SU storage unit and I had to assemble it (very easy) and then put in the pads - so nice to have name labels for the pads too.

After I'd finished that I decided to make a birthday card for someone who is sew very special to me :)  I used the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS65 for the layout.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set - discontinued); Die-namics - Sew Nifty
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Rich Razzleberry
Dies: Die-namics - Sew Nifty, Fishtail Flags STAX
Accessories: SU Design Paper - Sycamore Street (see below); SU - Sycamore St Button & Ribbon set; SU  Card - Rich Razzleberry; SU Marker - Tangerine Tango; SU Diamond Dazzles; SU/Sizzix Embossing Folder - Fancy Fan; Thread and card from stash

I had lots of fun with this card.  I cut a panel of Rich Razzleberry and some pretty design paper (Pool Party) which I embossed with the Fancy Fan folder and attached them to the card base.  I cut a couple of fishtail tags and stamped this lovely sentiment onto the white tag, and attached them to the card.  I stamped the tape measure and thread spool onto white card, cut them out and then added some glitter to the tape measure.  I used the die cut to cut the dress form and then stamped the image, added some sparkle and mounted to the card with dimensional tape.  I finished off by added a fancy button and some thread around the spool.  The thread started off white; I coloured it with my SU Tangerine Tango marker pen - so easy!!  I kept the inside really simple - with one of my favourite birthday sentiments - love the font!!

I've finally started my Stampin' Up! business and one of the great benefits of being a demonstrator is that you can pre-order from new catalogues - and I did!!  This card gives you a sneak peek at some design paper that will be in the up-coming "Sale-a-bration" leaflet which runs from 22nd January to 22nd March 2013 - contact me for details.

Stampin' Up! have a Clearance Rack running at the moment - click HERE to start shopping.  There's paper, punches and stamps too!  Have fun!!

Finally, I'd like to welcome a new follower - Hi Jocelyn - so glad you joined me.  That's all for now.  Got to tidy up and get dinner made.  See you tomorrow!
