Happy Saturday, peeps! A late posting today….I was busy in the kitchen but got some stamping time in and now I am going to go relax on the patio and enjoy the sunny day! This week, the As You See It team has another “squishy” sort of eclectic sketch that I love:
Boy oh boy, I had fun with this one…got to use a bunch of stampin' stuff! My sentiment was computer-generated with a font called “mom’s typewriter”—gives it a cool retro look! I diecut it with a banner die from the Mini Treat Bag thinlet, then trimmed it a little narrower. The star strip was from the same thinlet, and I added some Verve diecut stars as well. The background images are from SU’s Work of Art and My Favorite Thing’s Distressed Background Blocks. I was lamenting the fact that I had no grungy circle stamps when it occurred to me that I have lots of circular things right on my desk….my coffee mug, Crystal Effects bottle, etc., so I inked them up and stamped them right on to my paper! OH MY GOSH, how what a blast! Why did I never think of this before?
And as another nod to the challenge colors, I thought I would share what I made recently (another hobby to take up my stamping time!):
I am making a pair of these for each of my three nephews, plus Cassidy. The original pattern (from Ravelry HERE) shows two different Minions, but my oldest nephew wanted his both the same, so that’s what he got! I just thought it was so funny that my mittens matched the challenge colors, LOL! Enjoy your day and be sure to come back tomorrow for the Paper Players challenge!
Nothin’ like a brand-new set of PAINTS! And LOOK! Her butterfly is blue and yellow!
