Hi everyone. Today I am trying something new. My friend Melinda Gleissner has been encouraging me to participate in the Stampendous challenges. Today, I finally entered one and I have to say, it's been really fun. (Then again, what challenge isn't fun for this challenge addict! LOL!)
I made two cards for this one. The first card uses the tire swing stamp, which I colored using Copic markers. The sentiment is from the Perfectly Clear Happy Messages set. I made the sun with my Cameo and then I stuck a little birdie on it. The poor birdie misses his friend, who used to swing on the tire swing. :-(
Card number two is much happier. How can I possible enter a challenge with summertime theme without using ice cream!? I can't. If you know me well, then you know ice cream is my all-time favorite thing to eat in the whole world!! I love ice cream. This card uses the blockart owl eating ice cream stamp. I also colored him with Copic markers. I added a gem to top the treat. As you can see, the inside of the block is cut away. I'll share with you how I did that trick. First, I stamped the owl on Copic blending paper, colored him and cut him out. Then, I stamped the image again on cardstock, making sure to center it. I cut away the inside of the block. Then I paper pieced the colored owl onto the image with the cutaway center. I used foam dots to give it dimension and adhered it to a card with gingham patterned paper. There you have it. The sentiment is also from Happy Messages set.
here. Deadline is June 28.
