As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I needed it for my granddaughter’s birthday. I’m not sure the sparkle shows up on film. There is sparkle on the Balmy Blue layer and on the fairy’s wings and the flowers, as well as the Sparkle Glimmer Paper layer. It’s really quite easy,, designed for a beginner stamper. All it takes is pixie dust and a few supplies from Stampin’ Up!

I’ve been meaning to try this Bridge Fold layout. I think it’s very clever. I have seen some with a bridge that can fold down to make a kind of table. It’s great for a barbecue, kitchen stove, dresser, or that kind of thing. I went simple with just a vine. I used Animal Outing. I just love all the animals in this set! I thought the giraffe worked best, looking over the vine bridge.

My friend thought this card was going to be a lot of work. She imagined we’d be tearing and pasting all the little red (Cajun Craze) dots, but the Framelits did all the work for us. If you don’t have a Big Shot, you could substitute a bit of the coordinating Designer Series Paper over the side and bridge panels and just cut out the giraffe’s head with Snips.
