Just For Fun May Challenge - "Let's Hear It For The Girls"

Where did April go?  I can’t believe it is already May 1st and time for a new challenge at Just For Fun RubberStamps’ blog.  The May theme is 

“Let’s Hear It For The Girls!” 

 So many possibilities with this theme.

This cute little dress called Tea Party Dress is all about a little girl’s tea party and inspired this card.  I stamped it in blue and fussy cut.  Small amounts of color were added with Copic Markers.  To get the yellow script on the bottom of the dress, I actually placed a paper mask over the small words when I inked it up and then removed this and used a yellow Tombow marker to add yellow to the small script.  Then I ran it through the swiss dot embossing folder to add texture.

The cup, which is called Small Coffee Cup, was stamped in blue on white cardstock and parts were colored.  I stamped it a second time on decorative cardstock and paper pieced the remaining sections.


The background was created using layers of yellow and blue cardstock and coordinating decorative cardstock from K & Co.  Two Martha Stewart border punches were used at the bottom.  The doily is die cut using Cheery Lynn’s French Pastry Doily die.

Get more inspiration by visiting the other JFF designers’ blogs.  Get all the challenge details at the JFF blog.  NOTE:  There is a new change to the rules.  You no longer have to use a JFF stamp to be considered for the gift certificate, but if you DO use a JFF stamp, you will receive a 2nd entry in the drawing, doubling your chance to win.

Go and create!
