A New Month, A New Stampendous! Challenge
I know a little secret...there will be a new Stampendous! Saturday Challenge starting this coming Saturday, July 7th. The theme is citrus colors. How cool is that? Think of the possibilities. All you have to do to play along is create a card, layout or other project that is citrus-colored inspired. Then just link your project to this month's challenge. Please stop by the Stampendous! blog on Saturday to learn all of the details.
Oranges and pink grapefruit are some of my favorite fruits, orange and pink together is one of my favorite color combinations. I love this new Stampendous challenge.
After creating my card base, I stamped it with the Stampendous Cling Geo Bubbles using VersaMark ink. I then stamped the Stampendous Cling Party Hat Kiddo onto a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Copic X-Press It Blending Card and again on a scrap piece of X-Press It. After coloring the image with Copic Markers, I fussy-cut just the head and hat from the 'scrap' image. I set this piece aside to be adhered later. I then created a mask by stamping the image again on a post-it note and cutting it out. I placed it over the colored image on my card panel and stamped the Stampendous Dream Text over top of it with VersaMark ink. I forgot to clean my stamp the last time I used it so the text has a gray hue to it. I stamped "Celebrate" from the Stampendous Birthday Assortment set and added glitter to the pom poms and around this kiddo's skirt. I used both pink and orange colors of Stampendous glitter (colors from the Pastel Pizzazz and the Over the Rainbow kits), mixed together. Adhering it was easy, using a Sakura Quickie Glue pen. To finish my card, I attached my spare 'head' to an Action Wobble and attached the wobble to my card. The wobble was just a little bigger than the image but that wasn't a problem. I just trimmed the wobble a little before I took the backing off the adhesive.
My birthday card also works perfectly for the Stamp It! Cards Birthday Challenge over at Moxie Fab World (ok, I planned it this way). I must admit this blog is my newest addiction. The colorful pictures are amazing and it's packed with inspiration. Each day brings something new and exciting. My family knows not to bother me when I find a new Moxie Fab World post in my mailbox. To play along with this challenge, simply create a birthday card in which stamping is the primary technique and then add it to the Mr. Linky tool on the Moxie Fab World blog.
Thanks for visiting today. Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!
