Lil' Punkin Girl

Good morning everyone!

Here is a quick card that I made using the super cute GREETING CARD KIDS stamp set.

The layout I used is one from Splitcoast stampers sketch challenges. This was #317.

The panel measurements are: pumpkin girl image (4a) – 2” square plus 1/16” border, cajun craze panel (3) – 2 ½ x 4 5/8” (used the stripes textured impressions folder on bottom half), sentiment panel including border (4b) – 2 7/8 x 7/8”, frightful sight cajun dotted panel print panel (2) – 3 5/8 x 2”, Card base - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" then layered with Frightful sight DSP in the black with old olive pattern - 4" x 5 1/4".

I stamped my lil punkin girl on the watercolor paper with stazon ink and then used the Stampin Up! watercolor pencils and an aqua painter to color her. The sentiment panel has some rhinestone bling added to the sides.

This stamp set is really fun because it has an image that you can use for many different seasons and occasions.

It also comes in both Clear Mount $15.95 & Wood Mount $20.95. Click on the style you want and you will be taken to my Stampin Up! store to get your set today! While you are there don't forget to check out the clearance rack - where you get Stampin Up! products for 60% off!
