Happy Monday! Do you ever need a quick card? Today's card is quick because I had several backgrounds I made on my Gel Press already done. The are made with Liquid Color and a brayer, so easy.
This background was made from Watermelon Fusion, Peaches and Cream and Lemon Drop Liquid Color. So yummy, like a popsicle, you almost was to lick it!
The other super fun thing about today's card is that I made it as part of a challenge with my downline, who is also one of my besties, Georgie Manning. She also is as sweet as can be! We challenged each other to make a card using the Color Pop stamp set.
So with my yummy background in hand, I embossed the sentiment from that stamp set in black. Then I splattered it with some Black Licorice and Sparkle Silk.
I trimmed the background down to 5" x 3-5/8" and mounted that to a Black Licorice panel that measures 5-1/8" x 3-3/4".
Before mounting this to my card I added a strip of Black Licorice Sparkle tape to the spine of my Whip Cream Card Base (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4")
To embellish my card, I took a little piece of Black Licorice Twine, coiled up and stuck that down to the bottom left corner of my background.
And then cute part, the yellow flower, is from a pack of flowers that FSJ calls; Fresh Cuts. I added a little bit of Journey Glaze to the center so that the little elements there would stand out a bit.
Last little touch is a few yellow rainbow drops, which are card magic! Must have accents!
And now for the fun part of this post, Georgie's card made with the same stamp set. We did not see each other's card before they were finished. And look how we not only used the same stamp set, but the same stamp. I love that her card has an 80's feel with neon colors! If you want to read about how she got some of the letters colored on top of the white embossed saying then, click over to her blog post, HERE.
I also love that she used one of my favorite background stamps, Graduated Dots! SO MUCH FUN doing a challenges with my team. Stay tuned for another challenge with my team next Monday where Barbara and I pick up with our Mystery Makery challenge after a month off. Gonna be some country fun in that post!
Below are all the supplies I used to make my card:
