Stamp Insanity Challenge 1

Hello!!! I am so damn excited! I am going to be sharing my first Stamp Insanity Challenge with you today! I already LOVE being a GroovyGurl!!! We are starting off with a sketch challenge that needed to include an image(s) from Beth’s brand spankin’ new Les Coquettes collection. First, here’s the sketch:

SIS

So…I changed it up a bit, which is something I don’t normally do with sketch challenges. I usually just rotate it or something, but here… yeah. It’s different. But it looks so cool!!!

Meet Nicholette. Ain’t she totally rad??? I love her! And she was so much fun to color! But about the challenge… To start off, I’m not really a scallop person. They’re ok… but I’m not really a fan. So instead, I decided to run my purple oval through my crimper to give it that fab wave. Then, I really thought that I needed to center her and add the gems on both sides (I have 3 on each side. There’s a teeny square purple one in the center of a square on either side.). Click on any photo to see it bigger! Plus, I knew it needed an additional little something so I added my fang-tastic Martha Stewart border punch (spritzed with Glimmer Mist) on top and bottom.

Here’s a close up of pretty Nicholette. As usual, I pulled out my colored pencils and went to town. I also added an eensy weensy rhinestone flower to her hat, and a touch of stickles to the balls on her umbrella. Seriously, click on this pic so you can see it all!

    Leigh Ann Baird said…
    Excellent job! Love the hair! I am afraid of glimmer mist!LOL I'm such a weenie. I used to love scallop circles/ovals and while they look fine on other people's projects, I'm not digging them for myself much these days.

    Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

    Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

    I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
