Feel Good about Madison Avenue !!

Hey Stampers,

How are we today !?! I am having a bit of a own in the dumps day, so I thought I would post a fun and cheerful card to perk myself up a bit ! It uses the awesome Madison Avenue stamp set, Feel Goods stamp set and Sycamore Street DSP. Love all of these products so much ! I am taking this great quote as my mantra from here on out. She believed she could so she did !! Isn't that inspiring ?!!? Love it. And of course, using 2 SAB products that I earned for FREE is pretty great too !! Take a look at what I came up with !!


Cool right ?? Its different for me, but I like how it turned out. I pulled my color combo from this awesome DSP: Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, Tangerine Tango and Sahara Sand. First I stamped the beautiful sentiment with Island Indigo ink onto a piece of Whisper White that was 1-1/2" wide. I made a banner end on it with my paper snips, and then added 3 strips of cardstock that I punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch; one each of Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry and Pool Party. I like how it makes the Whisper White stamped piece stand out against my White layer. A fun Pool Party Printed Brad and this little piece was ready to go. I then had to bust out my Stamp-a-ma-jig, because this card has some pretty precise stamping.  First I stamped my border across the bottom of my Whisper White layer in Sahara Sand ink. The stamp isn't long enough, so my SAMJ was a great tool here !! I then put my stamped banner where I wanted it to go, and drew a light line with my pencil on the top so I knew where to line up my flowers. I then stamped the leaves image in Summer Starfruit, and stamped the flower on top (again using my trusty SAMJ) in Tangerine Tango, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry. Aren't the super cute ? I stamped the middle leaf image lower than the other 2 to give the images some interest, and you cant see where it looks strange because its under the sentiment piece ! 

Next was time for some punches !! The 4 petal flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack really did some work on this card. I punched out 3 of them in Island Indigo to go in the middle of my flowers, and I fluffed then up with my fingers and added a sweet Rhinestone to the centre. Then I used the same punch to pop out 7 shaped with the fun multi coloured polka dot DSP. They were all added to my border at the bottom with Glue Dots. Very cute ! Then a couple of Bitty Butterflies were added, with some more Rhinestones. I love that sweet butterfly ! I could add that to everything. LOL

Well, thats my fun card today ! I hope it makes you happy like it does me !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
