Colored pencil on kraft - Simon Says shape challenge

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge  is "Get in Shape" as I don't have very many shape dies that are large enough to make a shaped card I went with a scalloped edge shape for my card today. It was a little bit of a challenge to get my 110 lb white card base through my cuttlebug to make this card but I did. We were suppose to try and use Lawn Fawn products too.  For all of my embossing I used Lawn Fawn stamps. 

Debbie Hughes had a card about week or so on her blog with color pencil on kraft card stock that also inspired my card. I masked off the area for my sentiment with some post it tape and stamped and heat embossed flowers and leaves from the Flutter By stamp. Then I colored them and die cut the stitched panel from Mama Elephant. Then I pulled off the masking tape and embossed the "Happy" with gold Hero Arts embossing powder. Then I die cut the Birthday from some white card stock and a Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday die.  

So, this is my twist on the "Get In Shape" challenge, I hope that you enjoyed my work and that you come and visit my blog again soon to see what else I have created. 

This is where I was last night. My first ever pro baseball game. It was exciting and fun. I was blessed with some free tickets for donating blood at Community blood drive. It's kinda nice being able to donate blood to help some one else and receive an unexpected blessing in return.


  1. What a beautiful card Tess (I saw your entry on the SSS Challenge entries). Did it take you long to create? I love the look of those coloured pencils on the kraft background xxx

  2. This is a fabulous technique - love the bold colours against the kraft.
    Thanks for playing along at Simon Says Stamp Get In Shape Challenge!
