A Splash of Fun! Fun! Fun!


Hi Stampers! I am excited to share this card with you today. It's actually the second one I made this past week using Chi Chi Memories Splash of Fun Stamp Set. I think it would be perfect for a summer birthday, or maybe you know a teacher out there who is celebrating the first days of summer vacation this week. I know I sure do!


To make this card I started with a base of 10x7 White Card Stock for a 5x7 card. Lately I find myself drawn to bigger cards. You can put so much more on them! I layered a stamped background on top of my base that I stamped using my Stampin' Up! Distressed Dots background stamp inked in Island Indigo. For the main image I used Spectrum Noir Markers to color the divers, and Stampin' Write Markers for little touches here and there.

I printed the verse in big, bold letters and then cut them apart to make a few banners - one of the awesome things about digital stamps! I also used my Banner Punch (SU) to create the banner across the top. The colors used on this project are from last week's Color Q Challenge of Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery and Real Red.
