A Childhood Favorite

Happy start to the week, which means another Stamping 411 challenge. I was really good this weekend and worked to plan all my projects for next weekends stamp-a-stack and I almost ran out of time before I had to leave for a business trip on Sunday afternoon. I initially tried to use this weeks challenge for one of our project cards but it just wasn't working but I woke up Sunday morning and thought that the new Something Sweet stamp set would be perfect for this sketch.

This was the first time I used this stamp set and it just screamed BOLD Brights. I started with a piece of Real Red Cardstock and used the Corner Rounder Punch on just the top left and bottom right corners (this corner punching will be repeated on each piece of cardstock on the card). Then I took a piece of Gable Green Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot Textured Folder.

The main image is stamped with Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock. The clear mounted Something Sweet stamp set is perfect for making sure all the pieces lined up (I actually mounted both pieces of the gumball machine to one block and just stamped once. Then I stamped the circle image on a seperate piece of cardstock before randomly stamping the gumballs with Real Red, Gable Green, Lovely Lilac, and Brilliant Blue ink (some were double stamped so they had different levels of color) and punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle punch. Then I stamped some more gumballs on a scrap of paper and used the 1/2" Circle punch to punch them out before attaching them with SNAIL and dimensionals. This completed image was then mounted on a piece of Brilliant Blue cardstock. Before adhering the piece to the card I added a piece of yummy Real Red statin ribbon (love it!)

Finally the greating is stamped in Lovely Lilac and punched out with the Modern Label punch. I sponged the edges with Billiant Blue ink before using dimensionals to mount the greating to the card.

Cute and easy card, perfect for kids birthday (or the kid in all of us!).

Hope you have a great week and check back tomorrow for a preview of some of our upcoming stamp-a-stack projects (there's still time to RSVP).
