Hello everyone. It is once again time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This time our challenge was to “use our words”. I must admit I had to laugh when I read the name of this challenge. It is something I used to say, and my kids say to their children when they are having a temper tantrum and cry for an unknown reason. My vision was to make a card with a screaming toddler on it and an adult saying “use your words”. Of course, I didn’t do that because, well, I don’t have a stamp set that would have a screaming toddler included in it. So, instead, I am using stamps and dies to use my words.
What better way to display a lot of words than to use a die set of letters. First, I cut out the all the letters in Basic Black cardstock. Then I made the background from 1″ strips of cardstock in Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo and layered them on top of a piece of Basic Black cardstock. The sentiment at the bottom is from the stamp set called Itty Bitty Birthdays.
Now, let’s go see what words Buffy and Jackie used on their creations. Have a great day!
PS: If all goes well, I am going to have another grandchild today! I’ll keep in touch!
Susan, I named the challenge because working with children with special needs, everyone was always saying use your words. My ears would ring with it when I got home. Your card is wonderful. I love the colors, the black background and use of words only. Wonderful!
I love this, Susan! It’s so fun and colorful. And I’ll be hoping for happy, happy, happy, happy news today!
Ha ha!! I like your original card idea, Susan! 🙂 I like the fun, playful look of this card. Another grandbaby?! Fingers crossed – can’t wait to hear the news!!
