- have a blog
- be prepared to update it regularly
- and participate in each of our challenges during the month of August using a Stamping Bella image
Now that the rulezzzz are out of the way, how 'bout a peek at my card for the Paper Piecing challenge. This is the Big Guy Grilling, a Mo Manning image available in rubber from Stamping Bella. I also used it's a girl thing, but replaced the girl with a guy cut out with one of my sizzix alphabet dies.
This card will be going to my brother...a bit of a belated b'day card since they were on a family European vacation last month and I figured that was a good excuse for me to be late with the card...his b'day was July 17th! And next weekend we have our annual family steak and lobster bbq where Paul will be taking COMPLETE charge of the grill. The timing is perfect I think!
Of course he was stamped on Bella's bestest paper, coloured with copic markers, and shaded with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. And just because I paper pieced his shirt, that doesn't mean it got off the hook for a bit of shading!!! Try it...it will give your paper pieced card an entirely new lift!
Don't forget to hop on over to Emily's blog later today because I'm fairly certain it will be OVERFLOWING with some FANTABULOUS cards!
And get that rubber and ink ready along with glitter and bling because that is our challenge next week....Razzle and Dazzle with Bling!!!!!!!
Finally, on a personal note, tomorrow I'll be heading to Novi with some local friends (including my new BLOGGING buddy Pauline!) and meeting up with Paulabella at the Heirloom Rubber stamp Festival! Last year you may recall I met the now infamous Kraftin' Kimmie...who knows who I may see this year....maybe Dave will be there!
