What Will You Stamp? #143 – Text Ya Later

Ask most people who know me and they’ll tell you that yes, yes I do spend A LOT of time texting. I have been known to type complete messages without even looking! My excuse is the keyboard is the same as a computer and I spend a lot of time on a computer for work (and have done for most of my life!)

It was fun to create today’s card for #wwys143 using the Text Ya Later stamp.

I loved using the symbols and text that you use when sending a text message on a card and I love the colour combination I have used for my first card as well. It was Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party. Give it a try!!! You won’t regret it.

I think tone on tone stamping is really effective on any card. I use it a lot with the neutral colour Crumb Cake and it makes a quick and effective background for any card. For this card however, I used Berry Burst. Lemon Lime Twist has quickly become my favourite new colour… here it is close up!

 

I was having so much fun with this stamp set, that I thought I’d make another card for the challenge today. This time I thought outside the box a little bit! For some reason, the outline of the phone made me think of an oven! I love cupcakes as much I love texting! 🙂

I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set to create my delicious cupcake. To get the effect of the oven door, cut out the inside of the “phone screen” and adhered a piece of vellum cardstock on the underside of the screen. I used a slim piece of silver foil paper to create the “shelf” in the over. A quick stamp using the Labeller Alphabet stamp to say “BAKE” and my oven was underway. I used the gorgeous Berry Burst colour again combined with Basic Black and Whisper White.

Thanks for stopping by today to share in this weeks’ What Will You Stamp? challenge. I hope you’ve enjoyed the Design Team’s challenge. It is such a fun stamp set to use. If you’ve got this in your stash or can get your hands on it (once you’ve finished texting), then please join in our challenge. We’d love to see what you create!

Happy Crafting,
