You're So Cool

I am playing with my August Simon Says Stamp Card kit again! It is just too cute!!! I can't even help it. For reals. This time I took out a fun popsicle stamp, and, yes, for the record, this WILL become a creamsicle soon, as well...I'm getting there. BUT, for today, I went a little chalkboard with it! I stamped and embossed him in white and then stamped with Momento Luxe Wedding Dress, slightly off the original, to provide a dusty chalk shadow. I then fussy cut him before adding googly eyes! YAY for GOOGLY eyes!!!

You're So Cool


Here's a tip for you: When fussy cutting around a shadow stamped image like this one, give yourself a bit of room around the edges. The border will not only make it easier to cut out, but it will ground the image and shadow and make them appear as one, as they should.

For the dotted border, I used the dot pattern stamp in the Ice Cream Dreams stamp set. I stamped it twice to be sure it stretched all the way across. This takes a small amount of masking and lining up, but honestly, it was easier than I thought! Easy peasy, even! YAY for easy peasy! (I may have had coffee this morning. Maybe. It might have happened. Just sayin'. For reals, though.)

You're so Cool (detail)


I used a banner die cut I already had on hand to cut the banner and then stamped the sentiment onto it before adhering with foam tape. Super funness!!!! (Yup. Funness is a word now. I used it, therefore it exists.)

I just think this is a fun card. Simple, easy to create, and TOTALLY fun! You can find all of the supplies I used for it in the links below.

Have a Happy!
