Stamp Simply #120 - In With the New!



Welcome to the first Stamp Simply challenge for 2010! It's out with the old and in with the new for today's challenge.... use something new for your creation today! Maybe you got a great new stamp or papers for Christmas, maybe you treated yourself to some new supplies, or maybe you've had a stamp for awhile that you haven't used yet, therefore making it new. Or here's a great opportunity to try a new technique, a new fold to your card, or anything that is new to you! You get the idea, right?

For my card, new meant using the Rubbernecker stamps that were delivered to my front door just yesterday! And the reason I received these stamps is because I was asked to join the Rubbernecker team full-time for 2010! Yay... blow the party horns, and pop the cork on the champagne! I'm thrilled to get to keep working with the great girls on the team, and with Dave and his wife (Mr. & Mrs. Rubbernecker!) My husband thought this stamp was hilarious when I showed it to him shortly after it arrived yesterday, and so I decided to use it for today's card since I knew it would require a minimum of coloring.
I also used Lori's sketch from last Saturday at Paper Craft Planet for the layout of my card. Isn't this guy just the cutest, showing us his boxers? LOL On the lense of his glasses, I applied just a little bit of Glossy Effects. I have a friend going through a tough time right now, so I might just send this off to her!

Check out Sharon's beautiful new card for today's challenge on her blog, and see what my Stamp Simply sisters have that's new today, too....
