X-Treme Skater

Hi Stamping Friends!

I wanted to play in the color challenge at Stacey's Stamping Stage.  I was undecided about what direction to go, so I showed the challenge colors to my two oldest kids and asked them what stamp image tehy thought of when they saw these colors.  My almost (on Sunday!) 14yo DS said "skater".  So I pulled out my Extreme Skateboard stamp and my favorite boy stamp, Extreme Elements, and made this...


EXTREME SKATEBOARD


I used Stacey's ACT 29 Curtain Call Color Challenge and the sketch from the Eat, Sleep, Stamp Sketchy Thursday Challenge ESS83




The card base is Tangerine Tango, layered with Bordering Blue that was stamped with the Sanded BG stamp using Basic Gray ink.  The DSP is from the Sweet Pea Pack that was in the Occasions mini catalog.  If you buy the Extreme Elements set during the month of May, you get to choose one of our Designer Brads for FREE!  Contact me if you are looking for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I would love to help you out!

That's it for me today!  I'm heading to Senior Day at the Park, hosted by the Center on Aging.  I'm supposed to do a 45 minute scrapbook demonstration.  And I have NO idea what I'm going to say! 

EXTREME ELEMENTS   #115181   $26.95
















Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
