STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • The "vavoom" factor of this card comes from the ampersand sign cropped from Stampin' Up! Silver Glimmer Paper.  I used the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies, which includes 4 dies with 26 letters, 10 numbers and the ampersand symbol.

  • The ampersand symbol is popped up on bits of Stampin' Dimensionals for 3-D drama!
  • I used a Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker to ink up all but the "ampersand" portion of the stamp.  Apply ink with the marker (the larger "paint" end) directly to the rubber of the stamp.  Then "huff" a few times to get the ink evenly moist and ready to stamp.
