Goofy Smiles

Googlie eyes are not just for Halloween!

Sunday, I played along with the Creative Crew and with the Featured Stamper Challenges.  The Creative Crew is a Stampin' Up! Only Design Team on SCS.  They issue four monthly challenges.  This project meets the criteria for the color challenge, which was to showcase some new In-Colors.  I used the new SU! Pool Party and Island Indigo.  For the Featured Stamper Challenge, we were to CASE a project from teristampsalot's gallery.  I chose this card to CASE. 

I did use some retired sets...Tart and Tangy and Tidy Alpha.  Tidy Alpha is my "go-to" alpha stamp set.  I love it!  I use it a bunch!  It's so easy to cut...snip, snip, snip and snip.  Done!  I wanted to sew the title on...but I had used tape to adhere the Pool Party strip of CS and I didn't want to gum up my needle...so I used faux stitching. 

I had fun with the fruit.  I colored the strawberry with markers; stamped and punched the citrus fruit.

I punched them out with the 1 1/4" punch.  The 1" punch almost took off the rind...so 1 1/4" it was and then used the matching marker to color the white edge.

Aren't those googlie eyes cute?

The smiles are hand drawn with a black sharpie marker.

While I had the stamp sets out, I made the pages for the SMASHing idea book.

The whole shebang!

I had fun with this Featured Stamper Challenge.  I love Teri's gallery.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
