Channeling My Inner 13 Year-Old Boy
How fun is that? You can use any shapes for the rectangles. And washi tape, designer series paper, or coordinating card stock will work for the bottom layers.
I stared at all my stamp sets for 10 minutes before deciding what I wanted to use. I always go with flowers or butterflies, but that seemed too easy. Ooooooh – Mixed Drinks! No, that’s what Monika used in her sample card. As my Amelia would say, “Hmmmmm….”
*Light Bulb* Baby card!! I haven’t done one of those for awhile – mostly because I don’t have any pregnant friends. Seriously – when you’re my age, you don’t have my friends who are having babies. And most of my friends who could be grandparents either have grands way older than mine or aren’t even close. Still, I haven’t used my Something for Baby stamp set and Baby’s First framelits since Amelia was born. Baby card it is.
I decided to use the cute little duckies, because they fit the sketch. (And, yes, I’m purposely not showing you the card until I finish explaining. If you’re one of those people who just looks at the pictures and doesn’t read the blog, you’re totally missing out. Except you don’t know that, because, well, you aren’t reading this.) And then I thought, “Hmmmm. What can I use for that little element above the left image? Bubbles! Yes, that would be perfect. A couple years ago, my friend Deborah Smart had an awesome card using the ducks and bubbles in a bath tub. This would be perfect. And what better bubbles than the Mixed Drink set? I was on a roll.
And then this happened.
Yeah. Those bubbles totally look like duckie farts. So there wasn’t any other sentiment I could add except the “Sorry” half of the stamp from Pun Intended. At least he’s in the back, right? I had to add some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter to the bubbles, because – hey, why not? They’re soap farts. They should be glittery.
Jon had a shirt when he was about 13 that looked a lot like this. It said, “What happens with ducks eat soap.” I’m channeling my inner 13 year-old boy.
So – give the CPC challenge a try. I’m sure you’ll do better than I did. For every 10 entries, one is chosen to win a free subscription to Craft Project Central – and you get to choose what month you want. My friend Susan won last month!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
