I seem to have too many people that are West Ham fans and it is getting harder to think of ideas that incorporate both football and their colours.
I had this stamp which is Flippin' Stamps football and coloured it using Spectrum Noirs in West Ham colours. Although I used their colours, I wanted to make it just a little different so did not copy their shirt exactly.
I then cut it out using the Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges and coloured the edging with Distress inks in Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves.
I then mounted this onto some Core'dinations card that I had embossed using the Crafts Too Football embossing Folder. This was then mounted onto more Core'dinations card and as I did not have any ribbon that was the right combination of colour - put one of top of the other to create the colour scheme I wanted. It also looked masculine in those colours.
As soon as I saw the Angelica and Friends - Felicity Stamp Set by Crafter's Companion that I had to buy it as it had the phrase "Forever Blowing bubbles" and I knew that I would get a lot of use out of that phrase. I stamped it out onto on to card and also added Happy Birthday and then using one of the smaller Labels 4 spellbinders, cut it out to form my sentiment.
