FUN-FILLED FRIDAY

Well it’s the first official FUN-FILLED FRIDAY! I was lucky enough to give the first challenge. I decided we had to use a stamp I got from JoAnn’s clearance section for $1. Don’t forget to check out Jen’s card here.

The stamp is by Hampton Arts (New York Diva). I stamped the image on white cardstock twice. I colored one of the backgrounds in chalks. Then I colored just the girl with prismacolor markers on the other. I added some stickles to her gown to dress it up a bit. Then I cut her out and used 3-D foam squares to make her pop out. Then I glued the whole thing to card base (Bazzill cardstock). I used my Martha Stewart alphabet set to stamp “you are fabulous”, and chalked the paper to match the background. Then I used the 3-D foam squares to glue that to the card. I don’t know if I am happy with the way it turned out. I must admit I procrastinated a bit so maybe that had something to do with it. Here is a close up of the girl.
Jen gets to pick the next challenge so be sure to check in Friday to see what we come up with. Next weekend is also Shackapalooza so check in for some details on how it went. I guess we have 13 shackies that are making the trip. Should be a blast!

In the theme of Fun-Filled Fridays I am going to challenge all you crafty bloggers to ink up a stamp you haven’t used (or one you haven’t touched in a long time) and see what you can create! If you do please leave me a comment so I can go check it out on your blog. If you made something using the stamp from this challenge I would love to see it.

Have a wonderful weekend! Hope you get inky!

Yeah! Happy Challenge Day! I really like your card! You did a great job with it...I love the red color of the girls dress & the stickles & pop dots were great ideas! I often forget about my stickles--Duh! Can't wait to see this card in person! TTYL, Jen

Glad you told me about your card being up; my subscription shows no updates. Strange. I love what you did with this stamp. The extra layer really adds a lovely touch. Very creative, Kimmy.
