StampInsanity Challenge 16: Beach Babes Release with Red White and Blue!

Happy July!!! Can you believe this year is already more then half over! Yowzahs! I am pleased to announce that StampInsanity has a new release today! The set is called Beach Babes, and it is fab-u-lous! Put on some sunscreen, ‘cause it’s about to get hot!

Hang-10-1

Beth asked us to use red, white, and blue for this week’s challenge which is SO perfect for this new collection! I used 3 of the brand spankin’ newbies for my card. Henry, Morgan, and the “Hang Ten” sentiment.

Hang-10-2

Here’s a close up of the cute couple. Please click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. I colored these beach babes in with my colored pencils. I’ve gotta say, my 2 fave things here are Morgan’s shades and Henry’s hair. What do you think???

Hang-10-3

I also used a couple of punches. Both from EK Success. And a few pulls of blue chalk ink for a distressed look. I added the yellow in to give the card some sunshine. They are on the beach right???

Now remember, you can only get these awesome StampInsanity images from the Stamp Happens shop. So go grab ‘em! But make sure you stop by the rest of the Groovy Gurlz blogs and leave them some love! And be sure to give our newest Guest Gurl, Shelly, a warm welcome!!!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
