Moving Forward with Madison Avenue and Sale-a-bration is here!!

Before we get into all of the Sale-a-bration excitement, I’m sharing a quick card that I made with the Madison Avenue and Moving Forward stamp sets from Stampin’ Up.

Moving Forward

Here is the list of products that you will need to create this card:

  • Moving Forward (126320 wood, 126322 clear)
  • Madison Avenue (129657 wood, 129660 clear) ***Sale-a-bration stamp set
  • Circles #2 Originals Die (114526)
  • 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (118874)
  • Word Window Punch (119857)
  • Modern Label Punch (119849)
  • Parker’s Patterns Designer Series Paper (131021)
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246)
  • Cherry Cobbler 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (120992)
  • Cherry Cobbler Card Stock (119685)
  • Not Quite Navy Card Stock (101722)
  • Marina Mist Card Stock (119682)
  • Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650)
  • Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ Pad (126966)
  • Not Quite Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad (126971)

  • SNAIL Adhesive (104332)
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

I started with a Cherry Cobbler card base cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.  I cut a panel of the Parker’s Patterns DSP to 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ and a panel of Very Vanilla card stock to 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″.  I stamped the flower images from the Madison Avenue stamp set in Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy and Cherry Cobbler ink on the Very Vanilla panel using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for the centers.  Then I placed the two panels together and wrapped a strip of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon around the joint and adhered it with SNAIL and I adhered the panel to the card base with SNAIL.  Then I cut a 2″ circle from Very Vanilla card stock using the Circles #2 Originals Die and I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the images from the Moving Forward stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Garden Green and Not Quite Navy ink.  I also colored the flower centers and the birds beak with my Stampin’ Write Markers and added two rhinestones to the centers of the wheels.  I adhered the stamped circle to a 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch from Cherry Cobbler card stock with SNAIL, then I adhered the layered image to a 2-1/2″ circle that I cut from Not Quite Navy card stock with the Circles #2 Originals Die with SNAIL.  I adhered the triple layered image to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a bow from the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon and adhered that to the card front with a Glue Dot.  To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment in Marina Mist ink on Very Vanilla card stock, punched it out with the Word Window Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to a Modern Label Punch from Marina Mist card stock.  I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I placed a small rhinestone in the center of each flower.
