It's Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players! This week is a fabulous sketch challenge that is sure to get those creative juices flowing. So ink up those stamps and join us!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Fun, Fun, Fun
- Fun stamps deserve fun colors! A Lucky Limeade card base, with Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo Designer Papers, just screams fun in the sun! Blender Pens and a cacophony of colors are used to watercolor tasty treats, fabulous flip-flops, and a quartet of cuties engaging in some aquatic fun! What color inks did I select? The list is long: Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Marina Mist, Pool Party, Peach Parfait, Chocolate Chip, Elegant Eggplant.
- Fun cards deserve fun embellishments! A pinwheel with a Pear Pizzazz Glimmer Brad reinforces the summer fun theme!
A dash of Dazzling Diamonds adds a touch of glam.
And of course, what is a pair of flip-flops without a Pearl...or two!
Today's card was certainly different from what I typically create! "Sunny Fun", from the Summer Mini, was a set that my son, Brady, selected. He gave this card his "stamp of approval", citing its bright colors as the major reason he liked it. As for me...I'm still a vintage gal at heart, but it was fun to stretch beyond my comfort zone for a change. And with the rainy season as it is in Iowa, this card may be as close to "Fun in the Sun" as I get! So what do you think? Please let me know in your comment today. And of course...if you have questions about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away!
