Card Tag Memories Always-Forever

Happy Sunday Afternoon!!!

I participated in my first ever card tag hosted by my fellow Memories Always-Forever DT Member Kim. What fun! It starts with an inspiration card which is passed to the first person who makes their take on the card. Then they pass it to the next person on the list, who makes their take, and then so on and so on. The transformation from start to finish is quite striking! It's neat to see different styles feeding off one another.

I was 4th in the line up of 10 and here's where I took it:

In the spirit of my SPCC Finally Friday challenge this week, I made my background paper using bubblewrap as a stamp with paint.

The circle the Unity Stamp Co. lollipops are on is a Sprite coaster I found in the Target $1 section. This also served as my color inspiration for the whole card. (OK. Do you have the "Lollipop, Lollipop" song in your head now? How about NOW? Tee hee! Ooooh, that darn Dell commercial!)

You can see the entire tag from start to finish over on Memories Always-Forever in the challenge section or on Kim's blog HERE.

Details: Paper - Stampin' Up!, The Paper Co.; Stamps - Unity Stamp Co. June & July KOTM; Ink - Stampin' Up!, StazOn; Making Memories paint; Ranger Stickles; Stampin' Up! punches; Joann ribbon; Target coaster; foam squares; bubblewrap.

Hope you are having a great weekend!


P.S. There's still time to get your SPCC#7 creation in (due tonight - Sunday). Upload HERE.

Did you SEE this week's awesome prize from Elmers Crafts? I'm so jealous I can't play for it!!

Just loving the bubble wrap stamping. Now I wish I hadn't gotten rid of all the bubble wrap lying around the house.
