Baby, Yoda Best! – Ways to Use It Challenge #842

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge is to use washi tape.  Actually, I think the challenge may have just been to use tape, but that translates in my head to “use up some of that washi tape you’ve been collecting”.  I needed a card for my godson’s birthday, and, well, you’re never too old for Baby Yoda, am I right?  I bought this “Baby On Board” set from The Ink Road Stamps purely because I wanted to put hats on his head.  The party hat is from a Fiskars birthday set.  I printed the sentiment and stamped on Fabriano Hot Press paper, so I could watercolor him with my Spectrum Aqua markers:

So quick and easy.  I said that I bought this stamp set to put hats on Baby Yoda, and while that is true, I also couldn’t quite resist this image that I put on the inside of the card.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from the Power Poppy “Short Stacks” stamp set.

For the background, I dug through my little drawer of washi tape and picked out the most silver, metallic, space-age tapes that I have. I thought it would look the best randomly taped over a galaxy-type background. For this galaxy background, I grabbed a piece of blue cardstock and randomly sponged a few different blue and black Distress Oxide inks all over it. Then I smeared some black Stickles around the paper and finished with a splatter of white acrylic paint.

I’m entering this card into two “Anything Goes” challenges today:

Thanks, Stef! – Color Challenge #841

I made these cards for this week’s Color Challenge. Mary gave us some lovely colors this week that were just perfect to play with my new turnabout stamps.

I matched these Stampin Up colors the best I could with Distress Oxides and Spectrum Noir/Copic Markers. I substituted Peacock Feathers and SN BT5/AB3 for Just Jade, Mustard Seed and Y08/Y15 for Bumble Bee, and Worn Lipstick and SN PP3/PP4 for Rococo Rose.

I’ve been wanting to try these Concord & 9th Turnabout Stamps for some time now and finally got some thanks to smilynstef. She ran a giveaway on her Instagram and I won. What a fantastic box of goodies I received!

 These sweet hedgehogs by The Ink Road Stamps were also in there.  I also can’t wait to try out those color layering hummingbirds.  But in the meantime, I am obsessed with the Turnabouts:

In addition to all those fabulous stamps, I also received some really great paper pads:

Lots of fun bright colors–right up my alley.  And she included quite a few different fun embellishments:

Wow!  Stef’s crafty goodies found a good home here and will be properly loved.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
