SUO156WOW…it’s another Tuesday and time for another SUO challenge!  Just in time for ‘back to school’ our theme is Primary Colors…so red, yellow, and blue!

Well I was having a tough time figuring out what set to use since I didn’t have any ‘traditional’ back to school type stamps then I remember this one…Marquee Messages.  PERFECT!  Not only does it look fun in the primary colors, it would be a perfect way to send a kid (any age) off to school!

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, run top through the stars embossing folder
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 4, stamp Marquee using Basic Black Archival, stamp ‘you are’ in Basic Black Archival and color using Pacific Point marker and then use Pacific Point, Real Red and Daffodil Delight markers for the lines up the side.
  • Lay the panel on the card front on and angle and trim off the side.
  • Pacific Point diagonal striped dsp – two pieces 5/8 x 3 1/2, add behind the Whisper White panel, add to card front and trim ends if needed
  • Stamp banner area using Basic Black Archival on Real Red, cut out, stamp AWESOME! and add to card front.
  • Stamp arrow using Basic Black Archival on Daffodil Delight, cut out, color dots using Pacific Point marker and add to card front.
  • Stamp two stars using Basic Black Archival on Daffodil Delight, cut out, add to awesome banner.
  • Add Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point Enamel Stars to finish off.

PPA309Oh…school is out (well, classes are done) and I have some extra time!  I wanted to do a little stamping today and decided it would be fun to join a challenge.  There’s a really fun color challenge on Pals Paper Arts and I just couldn’t resist joining the fun!

The colors are Sahara Sand, Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum.  What fun!  I decided my Marquee Messages set had sat uninked long enough and it was perfect for the colors AND som fun paper piecing!

Here’s the details…

  • Sweet Sugarplum – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp the sparkles using Sweet Sugarplum, Island Indigo, and Sweet Sugarplum.  Layer until Island Indigo 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Sahara Sand – stamp main image using Basic Black Archival, cut out, stamp the arrow on Island Indigo and the  bottom banner on Sweet Sugarplum, cut out and add to main panel.  Stamp you are both on the Sahara Sand AND on Whisper White, cut out and add to letters.  Stamp the stars on Whisper White, cut out and add.  Add the Marquee to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Color in the lines down the side using Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum.
  • Add the very smallest  Basic Pearls around the arrow to finish off.
