I decided to take one last walk down Madison Avenue! This started out as my favorite stamp set for Sale-A-Bration! There were so many great choices of stamp sets that you can still get for free for 2 more days!
I absolutely LOVE this color combination from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (Free #127540) and the Sycamore Street Ribbons and Buttons (Free #130812)! I let that inspire me when I was designing my cards today! What a happy color combination!
This was the first card that I made tonight. I used several punches to make this one! I used the 1-3/4″ scallop circle punch (119854), the Itty Bitty Shapes (#118309), the 1/2″ circle punch (#119869) and the 1-1/4″ circle punch (#127811). Honestly, punches help you create amazing detail on cards in a flash! No more crazy cutting tools are needed when you can just punch it out!
The Madison Avenue Stamp Set (Free #129657) provides a variety of card possibilities with only 5 stamps! The Thanks sentiment is also from the SAB brochure. This is the Vintage Verses set (Free #129636). This card was built on a Summer Starfruit card base. I also used Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry. The sentiment was cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits (#130159), using a technique I showed in one of my videos.
Check out the Two Minute Framelit Technique here!
The final card of my set today uses Pool Party card stock and Island Indigo Ink. (The other cards used Tangerine Tango, Pool Party, Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry ink.). The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banner Stamp Set (132195) and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits (#129267).
