Hi...this is Cheryl. Anyone like college football? My family and I just love it. There was a cute post on Facebook a few weeks back saying something like "I am sweet as spice until college football begins." That is me to a "T." I just cannot help it. I have always enjoyed watching college football on TV with my Dad and now my husband, but more so since we have moved to Texas. When they show Tuscaloosa, the beautiful campus, and my Bama Boys hit the field...it's time to get loud, rowdy, and yell "Roll Tide!" Win or lose, we pull for and love Bama!
For my card today I used a scrap piece of black card stock and a top fold card, which measures 4.25" x 11" and scored at 5.50". I cut and inked a piece of the Teresa Collins "Now & Then" designer paper at 3 7/8" x 5 3/8" and added this over the card base, I cut and inked another piece of designer paper at 2" x 3 7/8", and adhered it across the front of the card. I then cut a small 4" piece of the Heidi Swapp banner and glued it to the top edge on my card.
In my stash I found an old football stamp which worked perfect for this card and stamped it in my favorite Prima Dark Rust chalk ink on a scrap of the paper used as my base layer. Have you seen these cool new NCAA stamps made by Clearsnap this year? Just love them and of course I had to get the set with Alabama on them! I stamped the "Alabama Crimson Tide" verse along the bottom of the card,
used another stamp and fussy cut the elephant,and layered it on the football.
The last thing was to tie a knot bow using a black and white gingham on the bottom of the card and I was done!
There are two inks that can be purchased for these stamps. The one I used is the dye ink for paper, but I also have a temporary tattoo ink that can be used on skin. For our first game of the season this year we all sported a variety of tattoo's on our face, arms, and legs. My two Grands thought it was the coolest thing. These stamps are available in most college teams and can be ordered online and delivered to your home by going to the Flamingo Scraps online store here.
