I spent the morning participating in a spin-a-thon for Lance Armstrong foundation. I lost both my parents to cancer and try to support or participate in any fundraiser that can help end this terrible disease.
I have two cards to share with you- both my sons have birthday parties to attend today. I used the same basic layout, but changed the sport to suit each birthday child's favorite.
I used a retired set- sporting goods. I will never get rid of it as I love the artwork images and it covers almost every sport possible. I also used my new SU textured plates for my big shot. Love them such a deal at $9.95 for 3 double sided plates. I then used direct to paper method with ink pad to show the textured image more.
I used my watercolor crayons to color in the images that I stamped in black stazon onto confetti white cardstock. I popped the football and basketball up on dimensionals. For final touch I added some brads- I like to add metal embellishments to masculine cards vs. ribbon.
I have been stamping for about 6 years. I became a Stampin Up demo in September 2006 and love every minute of it. I enjoy scrapbooking, knitting and teaching swimming. I am married to a great guy who supports my crazy stamping habit. I have two great boys 13 and 11.
