Thank you for joining us for the Make It Colorful challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too. This week the challenge is STAMPtember® Use a Stamp and Blog Hop. (be sure to read to the end to see where to HOP to next) You must create a project using rubber or clear stamps, no digi images allowed. Remember you can enter up to 5 times! 🙂
We are showcasing the new STAMPtember® products that have just been released. It is a HUGE release with loads of fabulous stamps, dies, stencils and much more! As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.
I have a Simon Says Grab Bag to give away (as does each of us on the SSS Wednesday Design Team) all you need to do is leave me a comment AND enter the challenge!
OK- so now onto my creations!!! I had so much fun with the new STAMPtember® products that I received in my mailbox that I created not one, not two… but THREE cards to share with you today!
Last week I was on Periscope sharing how I color in images with watercolors, mostly Distress Inks, but I shared a little about watercolor pencils too. It was such a fun broadcast! I felt like I was hanging out with my crafty friends! While on the scope I colored all of the images on my cards today. I just needed to come up with the backgrounds and card designs. If you would like to learn more about Periscope you can read my informational page here. I plan on scoping once a week with techniques, sharing products etc. Be sure to follow me!
For the first card I want to share with you I used the new Radiant Sunflower Dies and Big Scripty Greetings Holiday. Yep, HOLIDAY- but I created a non holiday card. I love doing that – getting more bang for your buck with a stamp set!
For the second and third card I used the new Back to School set. What I didn’t realize when I first got this set is my facebook friend and fellow New Englander, Nina-Marie designed it! How cool is that!?!?! As soon as I saw that nerdy kitty I just knew I was going to have to color it to look like Mister Harley. Which by the way, did you see his back to school photo I shared on instagram?
Can you see the resemblance? I asked everyone on Periscope what color the text book should be and teal got the vote- perfect, as it IS my favorite color. My last card is with the school bus in the same Back to School stamp set. I will admit, I colored a bit out of the lines. It’s tough to keep up with the chat on Periscope AND color in the lines. I still like how this card turned out! I plan on sending both of the back to school cards to my nephews 🙂
The next person on the hop is Jennifer- be sure to visit her and leave a comment for another chance to win!
There will be ONE lucky winner that will be chosen at random, it could be you!
