Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made over the weekend using the Broadway Birthday Stamp Set and the Broadway Lights dies. This is a fun set that shares the same drama as it’s namesake. You have a fun photopolymer stamp set that different birthday images, as well as some great sentiments, and the matching dies cut out must of the images as well as some fun marquees, and a great large Wish sentiment wish I used today. Here’s a look at my card.
As you can see on my card I used the large wish die to create the focal point and the main image of the card. This adds to the drama of the gold foiled paper that’s in the background. This fun paper in the background came from the Broadway Bound Speciality Designer Series Paper which is retiring but still available on the last chance list when I looked last night. This entire suite that was in the 2018 Annual catalog reminded me so much of when I went to New York back in 1995 and spent the weekend there. Well actually we where there five days and I loved it. I got to watch seven Broadway shows in five days, which by the way is no easy task. If you have never been to New York and watch a Broadway show I totally encourage you to do so, its the must wonderful thing in the world. Okay so back to the card.
So to finish off the sentiment I used two more sentiments from the set, to read It’s Your Birthday Make A Wish. I did the two smaller sentiments in clear embossing powder and used some deco foil and ran it through my laminatior. This allowed me to transfer the foil to the cardstock. You do have to be careful when doing this to make sure you get a good impression to start with. If you didn’t heat set all the embossing powder or missed a spot it will not transfer the foil. That’s what happened here with the make. I didn’t have a good image and it left open areas, which doesn’t bother me because this is a handmade card and not from Hallmark, so the little imperfections are okay.
By the way if you order this set now it’s still a cost saving bundle and you can save 10%. This set is carrying over but the bundle is not. So that means that if you don’t get it now you will have to pay full price for both the stamp set and dies and order under two different item numbers instead of the item number for the bundle. By the way the Broadway Bound Stamp Set and Bundle are my featured products of the week this week. This means that I will be sharing with you a couple more projects showing you different ways to use this set this week.

I hope that you have enjoyed my little look at the Broadway Bound products today. If you want to get them and save the 10% with the cost saving bundle now’s the time to do so. The bundle will be going away after June 3 when the new 2019 Catalog goes live. If you don’t have a demonstrator you work with I would love to earn your business. When you become a customer I will send you the new 2019 Annual Catalog as a thank you for ordering. I always send the new catalogs to anyone that’s ordered from me in the last six months as a perk and as a thank you. Again thanks for dropping by today.
