Another cheerful birthday surprise


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stamp set. It's called Jest Between Friends, and it came out in a summer mini catalog (2007, perhaps?) by Stampin Up. Yes, I went wild with the Stickles. Seriously, though, it's not as "grainy" as these photographs will lead you to believe. The glitter is definitely noticeable, but in realy life (IRL), it's a softer, shiny look. Photographs never do Stickles any justice. I'm sending this to a friend for her birthday. I think she'll get a kick out of it. The image was colored with Stampin Up markers. The present is placed on the clown's hand with a pop dot beneath. I am having so much fun creating this week! It's good to get some R & R in the craft room!

I am just BLOWN away by this card Ethel! It is so, so simple... yet the colouring and the stickles... WOW.

Photographs never do Stickles any justice. I know!!! My stickles always look clumpy when I take the photos
