Did you know 40 is the new 20? Well, it is in my book. ;)

What a fun opportunity to come up with a project for Nicole who is turning 40!

Here are the items used for this project.

  • ProvoCraft's "Cursive 101" Cricut cartridge for the "40" cut from scrap fuchsia card stock at 1.75" as well as my Expression machine, the numbers were adhered with Scotch brand Quick Dry Adhesive glue.  Using the Studio G's pink glitter glue, I "blinged up" the numbers.
  • Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink pad along with Studio G's clear stamps found in the $1.00 bins at Michael's Craft Stores (series 24 is the "Party Time" stamp and series 14 is where I got the "glasses" from). Using the Bic 36 count "Mark-It" markers in: Fandango Pink, Pink Flamingo, Stone Grey, and Cloud Nine Grey, I colored the wine/champagne glasses in and then Stickled them with: Gunmetal, Magenta, Silver and Studio G's pink glitter glue, for that extra bling. I then used Stampin Up's "Large Oval" punch for the "Party Time" stamp, adhered it with Scotch brand Pop-Up Foam Squares (I also cut a square into thin slices and used the pieces to adhere the glasses). 
  • Brilliance "Moonlight White" ink pad used with Hero Arts' CG144 "Time to Stamp" large cling that was stamped onto black card stock from recollections at Michael's.
  • Using white curling ribbon and fuchsia  Essentials brand Narrow Satin Ribbon in 1/4", I tied a knot in the ribbons and glued the knot down using the Scotch brand glue, then I cut the ribbon ends at an angle for effect.
On final inspection, I decided the card needed a little extra bling, so I used the Silver Stickles and dotted the "Party Time" oval and then the center dots to as many clocks as I could.

I hope you enjoyed this project and it inspired you.  Happy Crafting!

  12. Love the card. I have a stamp similar to your clocks and have wondered where to use it. It was one of those, "This is so cool I have to buy it but I don't know what I'll do with it." things. Well now I know. : ) TFS Jearise in Lorby's World at jearise at gmail . com
