Little Sand Architect .... in YoYo Yellow!!


My shipment of Design Team rubbah arrived this week from High Hopes Stamps!! I was so excited to open the box and my family felt my joy, as they gathered round the kitchen table!!! They oohed and aahed as I pulled out each new stamp! (I think they are starting to really 'get it'!) And when I had yesterday off from work, those stamps were callin' my name!!! Heehee!!

Then for yesterday's Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast, the challenge was to use YoYo Yellow in your card!! Well, it certainly WAS a challenge because I don't use that colour very often at all.....do you??

So I pulled out a really cute High Hopes stamp called Little Sand Architect and got busy. I stamped it in black Stazon on Whisper White and then grabbed some awesome new patterned paper by We R Memorykeepers and pulled my colours from there. I used Blush Blossom, YoYo Yellow, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Morning Marigold, Ruby Red and Creamy Caramel. I used YY and PP to mat it and then doodled a bunch with my Stardust gel pen on the sand to make it all sparkly!! I also stamped the sunblock bottle separately and trimmed it out to add onto the main panel later. The card base is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 in Old Olive and I used my ticket corner punch on the pp and added some eyelets in the corners. The sentiment is also High Hopes and I backed it with Ruby Red. I used some bright yellow grosgrain ribbon on the top and then added some of my Prima flowers with brads and it all went together perfectly!! A nice summer card!!

Kimmie,
This little boy stamp is adorable. Reminds me of my son when he was little building sand castles. He loves the water. Now he is on a swim team in HS..I hardly ever use yo yo yellow...That would be a challenge for me..Have a safe and happy holiday weekend. Chris

Kimmie, this card just makes me want to go play in the sand. What a fun summer scene. I really like how you used the yellow...not overpowering at all.

Kimmie,
Your card is sooooo cute. I love everything. That is a very cute stamp. I use yellow often. I have always thought of myself as a soft subtle person but looking at my cards, I think I am a bold bright person.
