Up! Up! And Away!

Up! Up! And Away! It's your Day!

Hi! I'm lucky to have heard from my friends who have been affected by Super Storm Sandy. They are without power and have huge messes to clean up, but thankfully they are safe. I hope all the friends and family of my cyber friends have been as fortunate.

Today's card share features Sparkle N Sprinkle's newest and darlingest stamp set by popular artist Michelle Perkett.

The set is called Abby and Walter's Birthday. The stamps are available as a set, individually, or as digital images. For stamps, click here. Digi images are available here.

The image is colored with Copic Markers and Prismacolor markers. I'm just learning to use them.

Added lots of sparkly glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle, and used several die cuts, punches and other frilly elements.

The triple loop bow was made on my Craft-Dee BowZ tool. Sewing on paper produces a soft look, especially when using lace or ribbon.

Products Used:
Tattered Rose Dye Ink
Lemonade Dye Ink
Shell Pink Dye Ink
Cloudy Blue Dye Ink
SB Labels Four Nestabilities S4-190
SB Fleur De Lis Squares S4-318
Memory Box Meridian Border (cut away arches)
MS Vintage Floral Punch Around the Page
fabric lace and ribbon
sewing machine
Copic and Prismacolor markers
Cardstock: Pale Turquoise, White, DCWV Luxury Stack, Watercolor Paper
