Happy Birthday Shoes

 I made this card using a retired hostess stamp, Making A Point, which has some great images 'for the ladies', such as shoes, sunglasses, lipstick etc. The paper in the new Occasions Catalogue, Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack seemed to be a perfect starting point and I chose this one with cross-hatched love hearts in various shades of red/pink.

I was super-happy to use the Hello You Thinlets AGAIN and the 'birthday' sentiment from Crazy About You. Starburst Framelits cut the red mat while Circle Collection Framelits have so many sizes in circles, one is bound to be perfect!

What was most fun, was stamping out multiple images of the shoe and layering them to give the slightest hint of dimension. The shoe upper is layer two while the bow is the third layer. I curved slightly with a bone folder.

For a glamourous lady, sparkles are a must so Dazzling Details were added to the platform sole and the bow. A rhinestone was added to the bow after I'd taken the photos.

The inside is finished off with more paper from the paper stack and although each sheet is only six inches by four inches, that is a little more than you need for a full card front, so the little strip left over is better used for a trim than binned.

Stamped in Real Red is the Yippee-Skippee sentiment "you can never have too much happy", which is my absolute go-to when using the large 'happy' from the Hello You Thinlets,

Now, I only hope it has survived the mail!

You know that it's that magic time of the year, for Stampin' Up! enthusiasts? That's because there is a new Occasions Catalogue out. You can click here to connect online or you can go straight through to shop 24/7 with only a very moderate $5.95 charged to deliver your order anywhere in Australia.

BUT that's not all.....

If you need so much that you spend $90, you'll be asked to choose one of the SALE-A-BRATION items to add to your order! Would you really prefer to look through your catalogues on paper, so you can post-it note it all the way through? Then you're a girl after my own heart, and I'd be happy to drop one or post it to you.

AND if you love Stampin' Up! so much that you want it all, or as near to it as storage space allows, I'd love to help you join up.

Thanks for dropping by, you can contact me by phone (0417 500 681) or email if you need a Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue or have any questions about how SALE-A-BRATION works, or anything Stampin' Up! related.
