Blingy Birthday

The girls have a birthday party to go to tomorrow, and lucky for the birthday girl loves purple and things that sparkle. Needless to say, I had lots of fun making this card! I used Orchid Opulence, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace and Lovely Lilac to stamp the Beg Deal alphabet stamps, first inking each on with VersaMark. I decided to stamp, emboss with Heat & Stick powder and apply Dazzling Diamonds glitter to each letter separately so I wasn't placing the Stamp-a-ma-jig or the imaging sheet over the sticky letters. I then stamped the body and head of the little girl (from All in The Family), coloured her face with an aquapainter picking up ink from the Blush Blossom inkpad and coloured the rest of her with markers. I used some Crystal gem stickers and sparkly non-SU! ribbon to finish off the bling. The card base has been stamped with the Scribble wheel.

Don't forget that the Spring Mini catalogue (featuring the Scribble wheel) is about to end! You only have till the end of November to order products from it. The All In The Family set (which you can read more about here) will also only be available till the end of November for the special price of $65 including postage. If you wish to purchase these, or any other Stampin' Up! product, please contact me. Remember, orders are shipped straight from the warehouse, so it doesn't matter where in Australia you live!

ETA: The card design was based on a Di Hickman sketch! I can't believe I stayed up late last night tracking down a link to the sketch and then forgot to post it...
