While on a craft retreat in Vermont last month I ended up coming down with some sort of head cold/body aches thing. It wasn't terrible, but it left me feeling less than energetic and certainly not very creative at all. So, I spent the better part of 3 days sniffling and coloring. Yes, I literally did nothing but color (and sleep) for three solid days. While it might seem monotonous to some, I actually found it rather relaxing and the best part was that when I returned home I had hundreds of images all colored and ready to be made into cards! It made putting cards together (like this one below) so quick and easy! I now plan on spending more days coloring on future craft retreats and during football season, so that I can enjoy time with Mr. Super Stamp Girl (while not actually watching the games)!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. I created the shaker frame using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies by Gina Marie Designs, clear acetate sheets and Balmy Blue cardstock. To create the background, I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" sheet of Crumb Cake cardstock and heat embossed the Color Me Fall background stamp from Fun Stamper's Journey in white embossing powder. I stamped all the images from the Fall Friends stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut all the images and then colored them with Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I adhered the images to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height. Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Balmy blue ink on white cardstock and adhered it in the upper left corner of the card.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
