Fall is in the air and I'm seeing pumpkin stuff, apples, and sunflowers. I just love seeing all the sunflower fields in August, don't you? Rows and rows of gorgeous vibrant color inspired me to share this precious card I made with NO stamping. Really! I used to be intimidated by busy pattern paper or those papers that have a complete scene on them. They're just too pretty to cut or cover up with pictures. So, what do you do with them? Well, hopefully this tutorial will help you...
Summer is here and it’s time for Stuart and Scooter to go on an adventure. They remind us to never stop playing, smiling, and dreaming. And this
Eat Cake Graphics stamp is versatile for so many occasions. I love this postage stamp embossed paper and how it pops against the red card base. I think it is from a Teresa Collins travel pad, I'll try and find it and let you know. Sorry, I think I'll remember and I don't. I need to be better about writing things down when I'm creating. I love the 6x6 pads for card making, their just the right size and I seem to collect a lot of them. Anyways, this paper is perfect for documenting all their travels.
Can you see the sheen? I stamped the image of Stuart and Scooter with Versafine onyx black ink and colored it with Copic markers, Ranger Tim Holtz mini brown ink and a SU blender pen, and a little bling here and there with spica glitter pens to make it sparkle, of course. Can you see the bling on the goggles, the arrow, and the wheels? I accented the die cut sentiment (from the same pad) and the stamp image with BoBunny blue dot pattern paper for background matting, punched them out, and popped them up with 3D foam adhesive dots. Attached a border strip that resembled airmail postage. And added some Authentique sticker words, star adhesive gems, and red/white bakers twine to make it complete. Where will your next adventure take you?

Do you enter craft challenges? If not, why not? I only recently started participating, because of Scrap It Girl, where I design something crafty for their monthly challenges. It has really stretched my creativity to fit the theme chosen for the challenge. I just got back from vacation and was catching up on some of my favorite blogs to discover I won TWO different challenges I participated in last month. WAHOOOOO!
If you don't play, you can't win! Sometimes you win recognition and a fancy winners badge and other times you can win products and gift certificates. I find its lots of fun to see what I can make and how others will interpret the challenges too. Lets see what you can make.
