Yesterday was the last day for three Sale-a-bration items (Sky’s the Limit, Hello and the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper) so today they brought out three new items. The Party Pants stamp set, Pedal Pusher stamp set and Metallics Glitter Tape. Woo Hoo!
I decided to get a head start on playing with these items and chose Party Pants first. One of the fun stamps says “put our Party Pants on”. Too fun! I got carried away with designing this card. I actually came up with three different renditions (that you will probably see in the next few days!).
This was my first card. Easy and fun. I had a ball playing with the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim. I don’t know why I haven’t used it much before. The secret to using it on a card like this is to cut your trim as long as you’d like. Turn it over to the back and put a little drop of your Fine Tip Glue on the back of the last sequin on each end. You want to do this so the thread doesn’t fray and your sequins won’t fall off!
I used my trusty little hand held stapler (from Stampin’ Up!) to put the sequin trim on the banner. The stapler is another one of those things that I don’t use much that I really should. It’s fun and easy to use! The stapler uses mini staples that really look cute on a card. 🙂
The reason I like this card so much is that I used a couple of items that I dug out of my stash that were getting a little dusty. Sequin trim and the stapler. I may have to use these items a bit more.
Do you have any items sitting in your craft room that don’t get much use?
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
