Ummmmm hi stampers! So I should TOTALLY be packing for convention or at least doing something to get ready....but I'm not....and I leave tomorrow night for my moms!!!! Eeeek! Oh well, I always wait until the last minute for stuff...maybe I work best under pressure. And I still haven't worked out at all today so I need to go for a walk or something but it's soooo hot out today!
Anyway all I've wanted to do this weekend is STAMP!!!! I've got more cards done this week/weekend than I have in a long time...now maybe I could actually get around to SENDING some, lol! So when I happened to click over on the Paper Players blog I found this nifty little color challenge and thought I needed to get at least one more card in before convention. Now, I know I will get to stamp a little bit while I'm there but it will be limited and I'm just so excited about all the new stuff!!!! Just look at this funky and fun color combo:
So here's my entry for the #55 color challenge:
Stamps: Up, Up, & Away
Paper: whisper white, poppy parade, baja breeze, basic gray
Ink: poppy, baja, gray, crumb cake
Accessories: seam binding, dotted scallop border punch, two way glue pen, dazzling diamonds
Ohhhh! Isn't it just fab! I LOVED this color combo as soon as I saw it and I immediately thought of these fun little hot air balloons! I just love the POP that the poppy parade provides. I kept the layout rather simple since the colors are kind of bold. I also used dazzling diamonds on the popped up balloon although it doesn't show too well in the picture. The sparkle really made all the difference! Those balloons would look really good embossed as well! Hope you like it!!!
I hope to have some cards to share while I'm gone and I hope to post some stuff from convention but we'll see how that goes as I really have no idea what to expect other than it's going to be so fun and I'm going to be so exhausted! Happy stamping!
