Custom Tee

What a fun color inspiration we have for you at Create with Connie and Mary this week – Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip.

For me these colors made me think I should do a masculine card and I haven’t used my Custom Tee in a while and thought it would be fun to play with that along with the Playful Backgrounds set to come up with a card for this inspiration!  I thought this turned out so fun!

Here’s the details…

  • Smoky Slate – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Smoky Slate – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp diagonal lines using Smoky Slate
  • Pool Party – 1/2 x 3 3/8, stamp arrows using Pool Party, cut into a point, add to panel
  • Chocolate Chip – 1/8 x 3 5/8, cut on slate, add to panel, add panel to card front using dimensioals
  • Whisper White – stamp ‘man’ tee shirt using Chocolate Chip, stamp solid dots using Pool Party and open dots using Smoky Slate, stamp greeting using Chocolate Chip, cut our and add using dimensionals
  • Add Urban Underground star embellishments to finish off

Playful Backgrounds

InColorsI LOVE to ‘collect’ sketch ideas and when I’m sort of stuck, I like to use the sketches to get me ‘jump started’.  My favorite kind of sketches though are CAS ones (I know…SHOCKER!)

One of the sites that I just LOVE their sketches (even though I don’t always have time to play along) is CASE this Sketch.  The also have CAS designs but they tend to be very different.  Anyway, awhile back I saved this sketch and it turned out being PERFECT to showcase the new incolors and this fun new set…Playful Backgrounds.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, run through Confetti Embossing Folder and add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, ink stamp using Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, Emerald Envy and Dapper Demin markers and stamp, stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer –  1/8 x 1 5/8, add to card front
  • Add one of each color of the incolor enamel stars to finish off

Now how fun is that?  And speaking of fun…
