Happy Friday gang!!! Ready for another exciting challenge from Scrap Your Story?!?! This week's challenge is stamping and boy, did I have fun with it!!!! I combined this challenge with Janet's NSD Sketch #8 over at 2 Broke Girls. Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it:
I started by using some gesso, distress stain, and various flourish stamps to create my background. Then I layered it up with papers by MME and Bo Bunny Mamarazzi 2 paper collection. I also used Heidi Swapp stamps to make "words" around the page: "Fabulous", "Hello", "Remember Today" and "Having a Great Time" were all stamped with Stazon ink in random places. The embellies are also from the Bo Bunny collection, aside from the bigger stars next to the word "Smile" which are grungeboard that I embossed and inked with distress inks. There's a lot going on here but I think it turned out wonderfully!!!!!
I also made another page with a picture from our recent cruise vacation!! This was taken at the port of call in Ochos Rios Jamaica. This is my Aunt, Uncle, Father, Step Mom, Husband, and daughter, respectively. I also created this for Sketch #5 at 2 Broke Girls. Here is that sketch:
And my page:
I used papers by Momenta, and the top one by K&Company. I cut the cardstock stickers into banners for a little more detail. The die-cuts are from The Girls Paperie, "silver anchor" by Jolees, and wooden ticket by Tim Holtz. This truly was "The Great Escape". Actually, the greatest of them all!!!!!
This page was also entered for Stephanie's "Nautical Challenge" at the Skyline Paperie.
And last, but not least, is a card I made for my Mother In Law for Mother's Day this past weekend using the May 15th Card Sketch from Sketch N Scrap. I received some papers and embellies by Pink Paislee Cottage Farms collection and they were perfect for the "type" of card I was trying to make!!! Here is the sketch:
Staying true to the sketch, I merely added some detail with layering (one of my fav things to do!!!) and embellies. Here's my creation:
Pretty?!? I put one of my Martha Stewart punches to work, added some ribbon, pins, and button by Prima. Easy enough!!!! And I LOVE the look!!!
