For today’s ColourQ challenge, Arielle has chosen this sweet little jacket….what little boy wouldn’t have fun with those zippers and colors?  So of course, I had to make a “boy” card, too….and with my limited number of “boy” stamps, I had to go to Mr Extreme Guitar again:

I used an assortment of elements and embellishments to give this card lots of motion!!  The image was stamped three times on Whisper White without reinking, moving the stamp a bit to the left each time---of course, I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment!  I also stamped the Sanded BG stamp over the image to give it some texture.   I covered a piece of chipboard with some Thoroughly Modern DP and cut out a frame with some Nesties, then layered my image behind a sheet of vellum cardstock behind the frame.  I added some brads and a couple punched embellishments after I stamped the Tangerine Tango card with some circles from Circle Circus.  I used the inside part of the frame piece for my inside:

  1. This is one fantastic card! I LOVE the shadow stamping! He's really going to enjoy this one!

  2. This is so imaginative Leanne! I love how you did the shadow stamping and your details are beautiful! Thanks for sharing, ~Diane

  3. Great shadowing on your card and the inside would make a neat CAS card on it's own. tfs

  4. Oh my, I LOVE this card! So many fabulous details. Love how you used the puch behind the chipboard with those brads on it! Now I might HAVE to get this stamp! I've got a teen and a 10 year old, so I think I would get lots of use out of it!

  5. Love this color combo Leanne and your card is so nicely done!!

  6. COOL card, LeAnne! Those colors are awesome!
