Feeling Good!

Hello!  I have a funny card to share with you today.  At least I think so!  I, pretty much, created this card backwards.  What I mean is... I found the sentiment first.  And THEN created a card to go with it.  Usually, it's the other way around, right?

I found this sentiment stamp at our local rubber stamp show.  A show I look forward to every year.  The stamp is from Two Lips Stamps.  They carry some really funny stamps.  I only bought 3 of them, but trust me, I will me adding to my collection.

...and here comes the funny.  I swear, I laughed out loud when I read this at the stamp show.  And, guess what?  I was all by myself!  LoL.  Literally!

Maybe, it's just me, but I still crack up when I read this.

As for the making of this card... I bought the sentiment, now what?  I really had no idea how I was going to use it.  I just liked it!  When I came home from the show, I started brainstorming on how I could turn this sentiment into a card.  My brain went to car, traffic and voila, a traffic light!  A simple search on SSS led me to this traffic light by Neat & Tangled.

The front of the card is pretty simple.  To me, it's all about the sentiment on this one.  I just stamped and colored the image with Copics and added some Glossy Accent for a nice finish.  I used the Radiating Rays stencil to symbolize the light glowing from the traffic light.  I used the same traffic light on the inside of the card and just randomly stamped it using Versamark for a watermark effect.  Finished off both panels with the Wonky die from MFT.

Thank you for stopping by!

Stop & Go stamp set - Neat & Tangled
Sentiment - Two Lips Stamps
Radiating Rays stencil - MFT

Totally Awesome

Hello! I'm back with a new card today!  Isn't funny how your creative juices just exude when there are more pressing matters to be taken care of?  I have such a BIG to do list right now, but crafting just seems to be such a better alternative!  Am I right?

I really like the idea of "stretching your stamps", so i decided to think outside the box a bit. I used, what is supposed to be, the background of a flower to create a different look.  I chose 4 different colors of ink and randomly stamped the background, then stamped a daisy onto each shape.  I really enjoyed watching this background come alive.  This was such an easy and fun card to create, that I am definitely planning to create more like this using different colors and images.  As a matter of fact, I will be needing a baby shower card soon, so my wheels are already turning!

The "thanks" was die cute 3x out of black card stock, then stacked together and coated with Glossy Accents.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great rest of your week!
