This is another of our March class cards. One of my demonstrator friends reminded me that I had never used the Marquee Messages stamp set in a class. I think I got it free at OnStage two years ago. It’s not a set that I would gravitate to, but since the challenge was issued, I had to rise to it, right?
After giving it a second look and reading the sentiments, I wondered why I had been avoiding it. As a matter of fact, I have a fun idea for it that I’m going to send to one of the ladies who didn’t make this card in class. Since today is a “snow day,” I’ll try to finish it and post it tomorrow.
Here’s the card we made in class.
I used the stars and sentiments from Marquee Messages, and the guitar from the Epic Celebrations stamp set, a free Sale-a-bration product. For class, we stamped Happy Birthday on the front and Party like a Rock Star inside. This is one of the “leftovers” that I made up after class.
First, stamp You Are in Basic Black and Awesome in Bermuda Bay on a Whisper White die-cut circle. Color the inside of the open sentiment with a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker. Add some Lemon Lime Twist stars.
Stamp more stars and the guitar in Basic Gray Archival Ink. Color the guitar with the Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker; add some Clear Wink of Stella to the stars. Layer to the front of the Bermuda Bay card base, then add the stamped circle with Stmapin’ Dimensionals.
Inside, stamp more stars and another guitar with VersaMark ink, then add the sentment in Basic Gray. Another beautiful Sale-a-bration product is the Shimmer Ribbon Pack. The three colors of shimmer ribbon are Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, and Calypso Coral, and they’re in different widths. I chose Basic Gray so it wouldn’t get lost in the card colors.
Yes, Virginia, it is Spring
I mentioned today was a “snow day.” We have about 6″, which is the most we’ve had all year. Funny that it waited until the first day of spring to start. I know 6″ isn’t much to my northern friends, but we don’t get a lot of snow here in northern Virginia, so 6″ is enough to close most schools and cause delays and late openings for most businesses. It started snowing yesterday morning, stopped for a few hours in the late afternoon, then started up again in the night. It looks like it’s slowing a bit, so I’m thinking it’s almost over.
Even though we didn’t get a huge amount of snow, it was enough for some fun. Amelia and I went sledding in our backyard yesterday. After she warmed up and had lunch, she and Mike went back out. She had so much fun, but she was exhausted by the time she got back inside and thawed out.
Don’t forget – Sale-a-bration ends March 31. Take advantage of the free products and place your qualifying order today!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day.
