Fun, little card today...

Hi again
So today, I want to show you a small card that I made to enter into the Simon Says Challenge blog's current challenge. The current challenge is to use dots on your projects =)

Here's the card I made:

I stamped the crab twice and colored in both. I cut out the body and eyes of one crab, added liquid adhesive behind the eyes and foam adhesive behind the body, and adhered it onto the crab I had cut out whole. I made sure to keep pressure on the eyes while the glue was drying, so that the foam adhesive under the body wouldn't make the eyes pop up. The cardbase is a little under 3" square. I stamped it with a polkadot-stamp and blue Hero Arts Shadow Ink (soft pool). The crab is a Snag 'em Stamp by Imaginisce, from the "Splash Dance" line, called "crab". I used Promarkers to color in the crab, and a white gelpen to color in the white inside the spots under the crabs eyes. I handwrote the sentiment, rounded the two upper corners of that piece of paper, added the crab to the sentiment-piece and adhered it to the cardbase using foam adhesive.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge submission =)

I just wanted to share the project I made to enter into this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which is to use checks, plaid, gingham, etc. on a project! I made a sign to hang on my bathroom door:

I cut out a heart of a pink piece of cardstock for the base of the sign. I stamped the man and woman-figures on a piece of kraft cardstock, embossed them with white embossingpowder, and diecut&embossed the stamped piece using a spellbinders-die. I used my Martha Stewart score board to make the grid/checked pattern on the heart. I scored every half an inch, turned the heart and did the same thing again. The stamped and diecut piece was put on the heart using foam adhesive. I then used some sticky tac to adhere the heart to my bathroom door =)
