Tacos Fall Apart – Featured Stamper #779

Today’s Featured Stamper is leslielarkin. Leslie has such a wonderful gallery, I wanted to CASE all her fun cards. She uses DSP so well. I couldn’t decide between using Witty-Cisms by leslielarkin at Splitcoaststampers and Whale Done by leslielarkin at Splitcoaststampers so I combined the two. 


You know I can’t resist a good pun, so they both spoke to me.  I started by stamping black and white tacos with little pink cheeks to make my own DP. Then I stamped and colored the focal taco. I chose to use some fun bright DP behind my black and white tacos in honor of Leslie’s fabulous work.  It took me a while to decide between “Let’s taco ’bout it” and “Let’s taco ’bout your birthday.”  In fact, I had the party hats all ready to go for this card.  But once I decided on this inside sentiment, “Let’s taco ’bout it” won out.

This is made with my very own font that I designed using calligraphr.com.  If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

Glow in the Dark Stars – Inspiration Challenge #814

Saturday means Inspiration Challenge.  I found this picture that I had the perfect stamp for!

The only thing I really had to think about was how to do the sky. I decided I wanted it to glow in the dark. You can pretty much sell me anything if it glows in the dark, so I had to have this Lawn Fawn EP. Unfortunately, I don’t have success with it as embossing powder. I decided today to just treat it like glitter. I’m happy to report that it worked quite well and glows beautifully.

The background is made with Elizabeth Craft Designs double sided adhesive tape on a piece of cardstock. It allowed both the glow in the dark embossing powder  and the Glitter Ritz microfine glitter to perfectly stick.

The fox is colored with E18, E08, E99, E21, and E51.  The bird is B05 and B24.  The grass is YG13, YG25, and YG17.

It doesn’t get much better than this.  Sparkly, glittery fabulousness in the light and glow in the dark.

This will be my last post for at least a week.  We’re going to take a week long family vacation down the Cape.  I’m excited, but I sure will miss my craft room!

This fits into these challenges:
