Popped into my Life


"Popping" in today to play in a couple of challenges.

CASology is looking for a project with POP:

Who doesn't love popcorn?!?
Because I needed to simplify this card for the CASology challenge, I actually made two cards.

I am also entering this at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (even though there is not a Simon product to be found on this card...say what?) They are looking for a Summer card.

Card was completely made with Silhouette Cameo.
Panels were stamped and deciding they were too bright, I toned down the ink with gesso.
After embossing the tickets, I ran an ink pad across the top to highlight.
Sentiment is computer generated.

More Clean & Simple card

Not so simple card
 How did I achieve that great popcorn you ask?  Imagine Crafts has a wonderful product called Amplify!. It comes in all the neon colors as well as black and white.
Using the yellow and white Amplify! I just squirted small dots of each and then watch the magic begin when you use a heat gun over it.
It really is like watching corn POP.

Challenges Entered:
CASology  -  POP

Let's go Shopping:
Silhouette Cameo & Popcorn file
Penny Black:  Letter background stamp
Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko:  Memento Love Letter ink, White & Yellow Amplify!
Darice:  Movie theme embossing folder

 Thanks so much for stamping popping by.....
