Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit – My Kind of Peep – It had to be done!
Okay, okay, OKAY. It took me FOR-EV-ER to get to this kit for many many reasons:
- First, it came later than usual because they sold so many of them it took longer to get to me. NOT MY FAULT.
- Second, it came at the same time as a bunch of other stuff. Again, NOT MY FAULT.
- Third, it came when I was trying to get cards made for another company's release that didn't end up getting released after all. I'm still traumatized. Don't ask. NOT MY FAULT.
- And fourth and finally, once I finally got to this kit everyone else had already DONE all the things I had thought to do with it, so it was INTIMIDATING. This could reasonably be my fault. Jan, Jan, you say, you are a veteran stamper, a great stamper (well, thank you!), how can YOU be intimidated by stamps and by what other people do? Well, we all have our insecurities, even those of us who have been around the block. Whatever.
Okay, I said all the things I had thought to do with it, and that's not quite true. I had thought of ONE thing, and since I haven't seen anyone else do it, I had to do it, don't you see? IT HAD TO BE DONE! Lookie:
STINKIN' CUTE!!! (YILM!) I decided to make a frame out of two dies, the new My Favorite Things Blueprint 27 die set plus the Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp.
Poor lil' Peep. His friends are all snickering at his grim reality, when unbeknownst to them they will suffer the same indignity!!! That is, if they get eaten at all. Some people having been known to just throw them away in the GARBAGE without even opening the package. Do you know these people? I do. Some of them even (gasp) live in this house! I stamped Mr. Peep and took a bite out of him with a 7/8" scallop circle punch. I used my Basic Black marker to draw in some different features from the standard. I also drew the black outline around the "bite".
These Peeps were all stamped with different colors from Simon Says Stamp. I sponged the background using Lake Shores and a Ranger blending tool.
I added a couple of Doodlebug Sprinkles.
And a little bow of baker's twine.
