Sunny Fun again!

OK…so Sunny Fun was still out on my desk from last week, I decided to use it again for Mary Jo's Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge (TSSC180)!  The size of the images were just perfect for the band across the card!  It is also for Late Night Stampers challenge to use Red/White/Blue.  I haven't done ANY red/white/blue cards this year and usually I do several leading up to 4th of July!  It is really sneaking up on me!



And here is my card!



Are you wondering where the Blue/Red ribbon came from?  I made it!  Yes, I used my Pacific Point Stampin' Write Marker and colored the white edges of the Poppy Parade In Color Ribbon blue!  It really was pretty easy!  Although…a tip…let it dry before you touch it!  I really like how it turned out and can't wait to do it to other colors!  Sometimes you just need a two-tone ribbon to tie your project together!


I started with a base of Pacific Point (well, truthfully…I went back and forth between Poppy Parade and Pacific Point about a half dozen times!)  I finally settled with Pacific Point and layered on Poppy Parade.  I cut a piece of the Pacific Point Polka Dot pattern from Celebrations and layered it on Pacific Point cardstock.  I wrapped a length of the modified ribbon around and secured on the back of the Poppy Parade layer.  Then tied a bow and adhered it on top of the ribbon.


I stamped the popsicle image in Black Stazon on Whisper White and then used my Poppy Parade and Pacific Point Stampin' Write Markers to color them in…kind of like the "bomb pops" you can buy that are SO yummy!  I added some White Gel Pen highlights, too.  The sticks were colored with Crumb Cake.  I layered the white on Poppy Parade cardstock. 


Finally, I stamped Fun in th Sun with Pacific Point ink on Whisper White and punched with the Decorative Label punch.  I think it is a fun card to celebrate the 4th of July or maybe a July birthday!


Busy day for me.  I was excited to get my big 50 card swap done yesterday for Convention.  Whew…that was a big one and I did a lot more detail than I probably should have done, but it turned out CUTE!!!  Now I feel better about getting the little swaps that I'm doing done.  Also want to make some 3Ds to hand out!  My future daughter-in-law is coming over and we hope to at least cut and emboss the 200+ party favors and talk about what needs to be done yet for the wedding!  That follows right after Convention!

Oh I so hope we get this set in Aus come September. It looks like so much fun. Love the idea of colouring the Poppy Parade ribbon with your marker. You are so right sometimes you do need a two tone ribbon to bring everything together.
