Sorry it’s been a bit since I’ve shared. My life’s been crazy since returning from Nashville. We’re now dealing with the aftermath of a plumbing leak that is taking forever to get processed through the insurance. We’ve hired the contractor to do the repair work today so we’re hoping the work will begin soon. Of course, this means that my house will be topsy turvey for awhile as they complete the repairs. After all, I came home to a jackhammered dining room floor so they’re going to have to replace our laminate flooring, fill the hole and paint three rooms. It’s been time for a change after living 20 years with the same 90s pastel color scheme so I’m thrilled that we’re getting an update. Just isn’t on the timetable I would have chosen! )
Anyway, I thought I’d share a recent funny "outside-the-box" idea I came up with the Sweet Summer Sale-A-Bration stamp set. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last month or so, you need to RUN–not walk–to the phone and call me so that I can tell you all about this incredible special! If you’ve come to my classes — or know me at all — you know that I can be a real goof ball. So consider this a fair enough warning for what is about to come…..
So here’s the card:
Cute huh? Well, my customers have been asking me about where this little girlie stamp is in the catalog! Ha! Little did they know that they were in for a little surprise! Let me tell you how this idea came about.
The Sale-A-Bration brochure was lying on my stamp table upside down as above. And I took a look at the flower above the lone leaf and stamped two bouquets as follows:
In between them, I stamped the other mentioned flower, but then turned the paper upside down and drew two lines to each side of the single flower to connect to the two bouquets…as shown here:
Add a cute little smilie, like here:
And WAAA LAAAA!! The cute little girlie was born!
Of course, I thought to myself, "I wonder what it would look like if I used the leaf as lips for my girlie.
Angelina Jolie??? Ha ha ha!! Not so much! It was worth a shot! How else are cutie discoveries going to be made? I even tried:
What? A little over the top? You think? ha ha ha! I warned ya! BWAA HAAA HAAA HAAA!!
Have a stampingly wonderful day!
