Birthday Bash Stamp Camp - Card 1

Recently, I hosted a Birthday Bash stamp camp.  Several ladies came over to make these creations.  We had a great time.  I made one card you can see here using Whisper White for the base. The idea for this card came from Stampin' Connection, a web site for Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

I let that card sit for a day or two, knowing that it needed a little bling.  Then my daughter Annika said, "Mom, you know you should use your Simply Scored Diagonal Plate on this one." Was she ever right!  This was the perfect opportunity for me to demonstrate the Diagonal Scoring Plate.

So I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the Bring on the Cake stamp set on Very Vanilla, then turned it over and scored it diagonally every inch.  I also doused it with a bit of Champagne Mist shimmer paint in an alcohol spray.  Here's the final product:

Stamps: Bring on the Cake (This one will be included in the new catalog!)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Night of Navy, Regals Patterned Paper dsp
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Simply Scored Scoring Plate, Simply Scored Diagonal Plate, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Square punches, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch (This punch is retiring on May 31st!!!)

Happy Stamping!

Susan, this is beautiful. I love the diagonal lines and the sparkle on your card.

What a great eye! Those lines were the perfect detail without taking away from the gifts! Such a cute card!
When you mix your shimmer paint, what type of alcohol do you use and how much? I'm ordering the refillable bottles and want to try this. I've heard of people using different blending liquids and wanted to know which works for you.
