CHF Backgrounder Blitz Day 3!!


All I can say is WOW! I have to say I am blown away by the ideas for this challenge! I am blown away by the WHOLE backgrounder BLITZ period! This is the BEST challenge I've ever been involved with; getting SO many ideas, so much positive feedback, I am in awe!

Our challenge today is to stamp on anything but paper. How fun is that?! So on my first project, I stamped 3 colors of Palette ink (from my Lautrec cube pack) on the Large Polka dot backgrounder then stamped on the twill {same with the sentiment, direct to rubber). It's real easy to do that with the 1-inch pads! Tried to re-created the multi-colors on Tyson's (CHF Stamp of the Month) polka dots with my pure color pencils (SU!). Are you in LOVE with him yet??! Surprised to see Kraft c/s again?! HA! How cute are those green & blue mini brads? They came from the Basic Grey brads to coordinate with my new Cupcake paper pad. Did I tell you the Lautrec cube packs do too?! It was totally NOT intentional when I bought them, go figure?! Guess my brain functions even when I'm NOT trying to work it!
On my other project, I stamped Tyson with Palette (Beaux Arts Blue) ink on white polyshrink. He was colored with Pure Color pencils...look how VIBRANT they turn out?! I have a renewed love for Pure Color Pencils too! How cute are these? Guess who gets them?! Yes, my sweet soon-to-be 2 yr-old niece, Gabby. Who by the way, I had a date with on the webcam last night so we could see her open her birthday gifts. Boy, that girl KNOWS her money! Her face just lit up when she saw the $2 she got! I heard the idea somewhere, to give a child the amount of $ to coorespond with their birthday. It won't be long that she will KNOW that every year on her birthday she will get $1 more dollar! Of course that won't be ALL she gets. But if you ask her what she does with her $, she says, "piggy bank" and you ask her what the $ is for? The genius of a girl says, "COLLEGE" get out?! Is that NOT the cutest thing you've ever heard? Just imagine HEARING IT?! She cracks me up! Naturally she has NO clue what college is, but for her to even remember that is the funniest! Oh and not surprisingly, the little Princess tin I made her, it was definitely her FAVE! She wouldn't let either of my sisters even touch it. She said, "no, Gabby Do's" Gabby Do you say? Well, that's what she calls herself because her mommy made up a song about Gabby Do, it is so precious, I tell ya. Can't wait to hug & kiss on that girl!

P.S. - forgot to mention I won a backgrounder from Day 1 uploads! I am getting the Grid Paper one. And I won Gina K's new set 'Owl Always Love You' - (out of 398 entries!!) you know how much I love my owl set by Kim Hughes? Well, I know for a fact I will love Gina's too! How blessed am I?!?! Pin It
