It's Dare To Get Dirty Time!!

We are having our annual Dare To Get Dirty challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers, so if you are a fan member, be sure to check it out....and if you aren't be sure to sign up!! Lots of fun, chatting, challenges, and PRIZES up for grabs!! I've made some of my best friendships through Splitcoast Stampers, and I can't even begin to tell you what it means to me!! My card is for Angela's challenge today, so be sure to check out the thread for the full details of WHAT the challenge is!!

For my card, I used the There She Goes set, Beach Bums. I stamped my crabs on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored them with my Copics. I then layered them with Banana Split(Bazzill), Orange Fizz(MFT), and Hot Fudge(MFT) card stock. My paper is from the MME Away We Go(6x6) collection. I used some Orange Fizz and Hot Fudge Grosgrain from MFT, Michael's brads, and a Creative Express spiral clip.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out all the challenges for the next few days and have FUN!!

TSG167-My Color Challenge

It is my week to be Trendsetter of the Week over at the There She Goes blog, and to start the week out, I have a challenge for you! It is a color challenge, and I have asked you to use Orange, Blue, and Green....easy peasy!! I'm not normally a lover of color challenges, but I wanted a boyish color combo so I could use this SUPER cute new guy!! I think it worked out well!!

My stamp is from the new Happy Trails set, and is now available at the There She Goes store! I stamped him twice on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored him completely on one, and just his hat on the other. I wanted his hat to look as if it was sitting on his head, so I wanted to layer it up just a bit. My cardstock colors are Orange Fizz, Blu Raspberry, Sour Apple and Sweet Tooth, all from My Favorite Things. I used grosgrain from MFT in all three colors, and the Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics, as well. For my embellishments, besides the grosgrain, I used a Sweet Tooth button, some Caribbean Twine, Michael's brads, and a Creative Express spiral clip.

I also used this week's Retro Sketch.

You will be seeing bits and pieces of this card on Wednesday for my Wednesday Trends post, as to guess what it is?? 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!!
