Every Day I'm a Wobblin'!

Every day this week the Stampendous Design Team and Action Wobbles Design Team has been wobblin'!  No, we haven't been over-eating and wobblin' out the restaurant door, we've been creating adorable cards for your viewing pleasure with Action Wobbles!  Today I've created a card using the Cling Hula Kiddo stamp from Stampendous and she's hula dancing thanks to the Action Wobbles spring attached to the back side of her head.  Here's the front and a side view of my card:



I created my card with a base of Bazzill and the floral patterned paper from Bo Bunny.  I added a strip of complimentary Bo Bunny paper with a fringe I made using "honey pop" paper.  I added a blue wave cut from Bazzill with a Memory Box die, as well as, a few clouds I cut from Neenah paper, also with a Memory Box die.  As you can see, I stamped my image twice, one I left on the paper I stamped her on, the other I cut out and layered her on with the Action Wobble.  Did I tell you they are sticky on both ends of the spring?  No, well, they are!  She's layered on a Bella Blvd. itty bitty polka dot paper.  I have to say, I absolutely love how this card came out!  Here's a short video clip that shows how cute she is when she "wobbles."

Just a Wobblin'

Who is Wobbling today?   I am!  Well, I personally am not wobbling but my card is!  How, you might wonder?  Simple.  Create an adorable card and add an Action Wobbles spring to it so you can wobble too!  Here's my card:

Here's another view with the card laying flat:



I used Bazzill for my card base, Neenah for stamping my images and Reminisce for my patterned paper.  I love the vintage feel of this patterned paper as it goes so well with many of the new Stampendous images.  I used two new images for this card, Cling Forest Santa and Cling Christmas Background.  After coloring my Santa image with Copic markers, I added some embossing powders, Red Tinsel, Gold Tinsel, and Detail Gold.  I stamped the Christmas Background stamp with VersaMark and embossed it using Detail Gold Embossing Powder and then distressed it using Tim Holtz inks in Tea Dye and Frayed Burlap.  I used a double-sided May Arts ribbon in red and green to accent the card.  The fun secret to this card is the Action Wobble under the Santa image.  When you touch the Santa, he wiggles and wobbles back and forth.  These are just so much fun to create with and what a great way to add movement to your cards!  Here's a little short video I created just so you could see the movement as Santa "wobbles" back and forth!

All aboard!

Hi all!  Today I have a Stampendous Sketch Challenge card to share with you.  If you haven't played along with our weekly sketch on Splitcoast Stampers you should give it whirl!  Here's a copy of the SC396 sketch for this week:


    Now, here's my take on it:


I've actually had this paper for a while just waiting for the opportunity to use it with just the right stamp and sketch.  So here are the deets on my card!  I used Railroad Poster from Stampendous as my image that I stamped with Jet Black Staz-On onto Neenah's natural paper and then distressed the edge with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and distress inks, Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.  The base of my card is Bazzill, my patterned papers are K and Company and Graphic 45.  I also added some Tea Stained Mica Fragments and Bronze Crushed Glass Glitter, both from Stampendous, as a little extra bling.  Here's a close-up:



I have to say that masculine cards are always challenging to me.  I love bling and flowers and ribbon and those things don't generally mix with "masculine" cards.  Also on Splitcoast Stampers is another challenge, Dare to Get Dirty 12 (DTGD12) and I'm using this card for the DTGD12Twinshappy challenge.  If you want more details, you should go to the challenge forum and check it out!

Also, I realize I'm a little late announcing this but life has kind of gotten in the way the past few days and things don't always go as planned!  Does that ever happen to you?  There may be some of you wondering who won my blog candy from last week's Stampendous New Release Week.  I'm happy to announce that JenGD is my lucky winner.  Wondering what she won?  It was a secret!  Here's what she won:



So, JenGD, I hope you like your prizes, please leave me your e-mail addy so I may contact you.  That's it for today.  Hope you like my card and will check back again soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs!
