Kendra is today’s featured stamper at Splitcoast! Yay Kendra! Here’s her Gallery – IT’S GREAT!!
I CASED by memory. I changed more than two things, but I CASED the parts that I remembered and LOVED! I LOVED the embossed paper on the bottom half, how it was the exact size (in width) and lined up perfectly with the top half patterned paper creating one background piece, and I LOVED how the two were separated by another patterned paper with stripes going vertically, then a strip of ribbon going horizontally just below it - I LOVED it! I thought it was a great way to use some different patterns, textures, etc. My image ended up being a bit too big to be off-centered...plus I just have a hard time not centering everything! I chinced out a bit and couldn’t find two striped things to work for the middle of the card, so I used wide grosgrain ribbon for the vertical stripe instead : )
I’ve been thinking about Bubs the Beaver from Our Craft Lounge for a while… I spent a lot of time with him this weekend actually! Anyway, I was looking at the stamp set and I thought, “You know what…..I think that I CHEWS U would fit right in the middle of that snag of a tree!” And it did! I just did some tape masking on the stamp as I inked it up, then I stamped the sentiment right in the middle! I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and OMS.
I keep buying these Twix Stix because I think they look just like LOGS and I keep thinking I’m going to think of a cute way to use them with Mr. Bubs….but then I keep eating them! Finally yesterday I had a thought…Hey – I bet these would fit perfectly in a nugget tin… and they did! AND the best part? Five fit perfectly and six come in a box so that means I got to eat one! Always a plus! (hmm..my size too). I think the frog that comes in this set is just soo stinkin cute and I HAD to use it! So I stuck the frog on a chipboard star and called it good!
Thanks Kendra for the inspiration – and a good reason to eat chocolate!
