Birthday Bling

Hi there all!! Welcome to Mrs. Lincoln's Inkin'!!!

Today's share is a card that i made for my Bestie whose birthday is coming up this Friday!!  She LOVES Pink and she LOVES Bling! This card i thought would be perfect for her. It's filled with both!!!

The base of my card is average size of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and then I layered Melon Mambo cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and then a piece of the Silver Glimmer paper cut at 3 3/4" x 5".  I wanted the "bling" to really show so i made my smaller piece (Whisper White) just large enough to outline my vocal piece which is the ribbon from Blue Ribbon stamp set.  I sponged the edges with Melon Mambo ink and then lightly bushed the edge with my StazOn ink.  Just enough to give it some more dimension.  For my ribbon i stamped it in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and then again on Basic Black and then used my Paper Snips to cut out the tails. I stamped it one more time with my Smokey Slate ink and then punched out the center with my 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Punched out the scallop part of the ribbon with my 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch and popped it up on Dimensionals.  To add just a little something extra i took my Banner punch, which sorry to say is not available now. It was a freebie from this past Sale-A-Bration... but you never know... it may show up in the new Annual Catalog.

Speaking of the new catalog, have you seen the lists of the retiring products?  If not, here they are:

Retiring Stamp List HERE

Keep in mind the items are only available while supplies last, so don't wait and miss out!!  Today Stampin' Up! released the new items for the Weekly Deals; some more great ones that you can get for a "steal"

Now a quick update on the selling/buying of our house.  Our closing date for the house that we live in now is set in stone for May 27th.  It is right around the corner and i am beginning to freak out, lol:) We are not even close to be all packed and ready to go.  The appraisal of our new home was done today so now we are just waiting for the actual report and we will be aaaalllll set!  We are hoping to just move right from our current house to our new house... fingers crossed that all works out and we are able to do that.

Well, that is all for today my friends.  Thanks for stopping by. I will try to get another post done this week (try being the key word, lol). Oh quick before i forget... my new supply list also helps you know what items are on the retiring lists.  If you click on an item that is going to be retiring it takes you directly to the page that says "Good-Bye", if it is not retiring it takes you directly to my online store so that you can place your order if you wish.  Just a little FYI!! Until next time...
Happy Inkin'
