Stamping 411 – Happy Moments

As you can see, I've done some MAJOR rennovations on my Blog!  Thanks to Michelle Laycock for the awesome new Blog Layout!  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Time for this week's Stamping 411 sketch challenge!  On my card, I used two of the new Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration sets, Happy Moments and Vintage Labels.  I really like BOTH of these…well, truly, I like ALL the Sale-A-Bration selections this year!

For my card, I started with a base of Almost Amethyst and layered on the floral paper from Tea Party.  Then I cut a diagonal piece of the stripe pattern and placed that over the floral (that way I didn't have to worry about seams matching up!)

I stamped the birdcage in Basic Brown on Whisper White and layered it on Almost Amethyst.  I added a couple of the Little Leave Sizzlets diecuts in Certainly Celery.  The top of the birdcage has a gold mini brad.


I stamped the Vintage Label in Basic Brown and Happy Birthday in Certainly Celery, then punched it with the Curly Label punch.  It was placed over the 5/8 Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon…yummy!

This card came together pretty easy with the sketch.  I hope you check out the rest of the Operators on Stamping 411 this week and make up a card and play along!
