What’s Up?

Whats Up Hola Chicas!

I’m back with another submission for the Moxie Fab World ChallengeI Want to Ride My Bicycle.  I’ve had this idea in my head for a while now – super fun to execute!!  It also qualifies for the Stamp Something Summer Challenge (details included HERE), as well as the Caardvarks Dry/Wet Embossing Challenge.

I created the swirly sky with the Sunshine Impression Plate from Papertrey Ink.  Once I figured out the sandwich combination, it was a breeze (get it? LOL) to get the yummy texture that this Impression Plate creates.  The clouds were created with the Cloud 1 & 2 Collection Dies, also from Papertrey Ink.  The big polka dots inside the clouds are courtesy of the QuicKutz Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Fun, huh?

The bicycle image was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using Apricot Zing/American Crafts Embossing Powder – so delicious!  The sentiment was also stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Powder Zing/AC EP – can you tell I really like this stuff?  It’s the best!

STAMPS:  Vintage Set (A Muse), Hello2You (The Stamps of Life)
INK:  Versamark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Sno Cone CS (Poptone), White CS (Neenah)
ACCESSORIES:  Sunshine Impression Plate (Papertrey Ink), Cloud 1 & 2 Die Collection Dies (Papertrey Ink), Power and Apricot Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Polka Dots Embossing Folder (QuicKutz), Cuttlebug, White Taffeta Ribbon (Stampin’ Up!), Orange Zest Button (Papertrey Ink), Orange and White Baker’s Twine (Impress Rubber Stamps), Glue Dots, Corner Rounder (EK Success)

Oh, did you notice my new watermark?  So stinkin’ cute, huh?  I got it from Karen Giron – she’s such a clever girl – and it only cost me $2!!  Woohoo!!  I got another one, too . . . I’ll share it later – when the mood strikes me.  LOL  Thanks, Karen!

I’m pretty happy with how this turned out.  I hope you like it, too.  That’s it for me, kids!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Another great just keep creating the stinkin' cutest cards with very little stamping, wish I had your knack for that. Such a clever way to do the clouds...LOVE everything about it.

Looks like a another challenge winner to me!
