Papa's Kids

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a stamp filled weekend . My Mom came over about 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and we stamped until about 3:00 and after she left I kept stamping until 8:00 that night. Yesterday I stamped while Danny and the kids watched the race. I needed some stamping therapy though. I didnt get to stamp at all last week. (frown)

I made this card for my stepdad for his bday this month. Someone bought this set and when I took it to her I was picking at her telling her she almost didnt get it b/c I was going to keep it!LOL! She handed me the set and told me if I would mount the stamps for her I could play w/it! Alrighty!!! I thought it was gonna be a booger to mount but it was really easy. After alot of playing around w/the set I figured out the best way for me to line up the bodies and made this card of all the grandkids for my stepdad. They are lined up youngest to oldest from the left. They sure arent perfectly lined up but I think thats what makes it cuter. JMHO. They were so fun to color and the kids loved it. I stamped all the bodies in black stazon on PTI white and colored w/blender pens and pads. I used creamy caramel for all the skin tones. For the hair on the 3 of the girls I used chocolate chip and close to cocoa. For the boy and girl in the middle I used summer sun and close to cocoa mixed for a dirty blonde hair color. All the clothes were colored using the bold brights. For the grass I cut a piece of green galore 1 1/2" and cut into strips and placed a 1/2" strip over the bottom to keep the grass in place. Hugs and wishes sentiment is stamped on brilliant blue in black stazon and I used black 1/4" grosgrain from Taylors ribbon share. The football is colored w/close to cocoa and is up on dimensionals and I pierced the top right corner for a little something extra on the card. It is always so hard when it comes to embellishments on a masuline card I dont want it to look too girly. Hopefully he will think its as cute as I do!

P.S. Im looking forward to the class tommorrow night ladies! Most of what I worked on this weekend was for the class so you will get to see it Tuesday night! Happy Stampin
