Celebrate You Fireworks Card

Stampin' Up! ® Independent Demonstrator Ellen Vargo 


Today's card just blew me away... I had this idea to use the sunburst-y stamp from the Amazing You stamp set to see if I could create some fireworks, and you know what?  It totally worked!  Check it out!

So... I started with the Amazing You stamp set and the Celebrate You framelits, both of which are selections in the current Sale-A-Bration catalog! Here's the stamp set - I used the "Let's" , "YOU" and the sunburst/sunrise stamps... If you spend $50 you can choose this stamp set for FREE! 

And here are the framelits... this is a $100 level item, which means you need to spend $100 to get these dies for free... (and if you spend $150 you can get them BOTH for free!)  

I chose a rainbow of ink colors: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, and Island Indigo.  I started on the left side with the purples and pinks, stamping one sunburst on top of the other, forming a firework bursting, and worked my way across the card, overlapping the colors slightly as I went.  I just love how it turned out!

 Then I used my Big Shot to cut out the word "celebrate" with Basic Black card stock, coated it with a generous layer of Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, and added two layers of clear embossing powder for a sparkle and shine worthy of a fireworks card... 

I then stamped the "Let's" and "YOU" stamps with Versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  And finished the card with the Adhesive Back Sequins.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! You can buy products easily through my Stampin' Up! shop, or by clicking on the items below. If your order is less than $150, please use this month's Host Code listed on the sidebar by placing it in the coupon section at check out.
