Another look at SU Madison Avenue…


When I mentioned in my post yesterday that I felt I would be using the SAB stamp set Madison Avenue a lot in the future…I did not think it would be so soon in the future…LOL. The new Muse Club Challenge #2 card just screamed to me…Madison Avenue with its flower and Sycamore Street DSP with its vibrant colors. I was also inspired by the shape of the card so I used SU Labels Collection to create the top border. I admit this isn’t normally a style of card- boldly whimsical- that I usually make, and was thankful to Suzanne Dahlberg for her inspiration and helping me to move out of my comfort zone.


AND…once again- this Sycamore Street DSP, buttons, and stamp set are all freebies during  STAMPIN’ UP Sale-A-Bration that runs until March 22. Yeah!

Check out how STAMPIN’ UP keeps up with what is trending in decor…


SU Madison Avenue- SAB 2013 for Dynamic Duos #37

I absolutely adore soft, earthy colors like Soft Suede and Crumb Cake so Dynamic Duos #37 was right up my alley this week. I was equally happy to use another STAMPIN’ UP Sale-A-Bration 2013 stamp set called Madison Avenue. I initially looked at this set more like a collection of stamps that could be used with other stamp sets rather than a set in and of itself.  However, I have been seeing some amazing creations in the card world using this set. I think I will be using it a lot in the future especially since it was FREE!! And you could pick this set OR the Vine Street Embossing Folder used on my card with a minimum $50 order. Gotta love Sale-A-Bration with its free items;)

I also used my new Designer Builder Brads from the Spring Catalog- oh my, LOVE them!! And there are 16 designer brads in the package with 20 epoxy bubbles for only $6.95. Imagine what you can do with them.  Comment on this post if you have some neat ideas…


Here is a close up of the Designer Builder Brad:
