SDC 158: Black, White and a Pop of Color

I've been a bit AWOL as we took a spontaneous trip down the west coast to visit the fam.  Had a GREAT time and I was able to assuage some mama guilt as well.  I grew up in Anaheim, home of Disneyland, and my mom still lives there.  My youngest, now 12, had never been to Disneyland before this trip. I know!  How is that possible?  Parental neglect, I suppose.  Anyway, fixed that right up and here is a pic of us in front of It's A Small World (sans my beloved daughter who is in that nobody-can-take-pictures-of-me-even-though-I-take-a-ton-of-selfies stage).  Yes.  I did make them go on this ride.  It's a classic.

By the way, I don't usually look quite this goofy.  I was deep in the midst of fake laughing which you can tell my darlings thoroughly enjoy.  :)

Anyhoo...there's a great challenge from the ever-so-delightful Kay over at SDC this week: black, white and a POP of color.  I've been wanting this stamp for AGES so of course I reached for '3 in a Round' right away for my card.

I stamped the image several times so that I could create dimensional layers.  This just begs for them, don't you think?

In retrospect, I probably should have used the top layer as my base and then had the deeper layers beneath it.  Hubby thought I was going for a nest of some sort.  Hmmmm...ah well.  So much fun to have a play with these guys.

Until next time...thanks for stopping by!

  3. First, you don't look "goofy," but absolutely full of joy! Big difference! Love your creation this week for my challenge, Julie! Three in a Round, with that green background, just pops off your card! Rather, that looks like 3 Design Team members peering down a rabbit hole trying to find Julie who has been MIA! hehe Seriously, so glad you are back and participating in the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week!

  4. Looks like you had a good time ! Good for you ! Love your card. It is absolutely fabulous. Another one for the wish list !!

  6. So good to see you getting some well earned family time Julie. I love that card too - brilliant design and just the right pop of colour. Jenny x
